Soul Saga Floating Health Bar


Today I finally got back to some Soul Saga programming! The most visual change in this update was the floating health bars that appear next to a character when hovering the mouse over them. I also started working on adding a checkpoint room where the player can shop. This will take at least another day to finish implementing , though.

Tomorrow I will continue working on the checkpoint room and hopefully implement the basic shopkeeper who spawns random items that can be purchased.
