The rebuilding has begun...
Congrats! I've started rebuilding as well, I hope you figure it out faster than I am. :lol:

I am progressing slowly, but surely. I learned a lot this weekend and managed to get a mostly stable engine in place for my game. I managed to start sneaking in a couple customizations as well, but still need to tweak them. All in all, productive weekend.

A couple of Turtle Rescue updates have made it to the web!

First, on the official Turtle Rescue Twitter account (link in signature), you can see the Gossip Turtle social media account's first ever simul-cast both in the real world and in the in-game world. At any point in his quest, Toby the Turtle can open that feed for tips and secrets!

Then over at www.thenew8bitheroes.com, Joe G posted a great video featuring many awesome games in the works. Turtle Rescue is there, and it has the first appearance of a new boss creature for Toby to face!

I was thinking the same thing about the crocodile boss. Looks nice!

Progress update! I am slowly plotting out the beginnings of my game. Not a lot of coding changes under the hood, rather I'm using NESmaker to the fullest of its core abilities to tell the story of "Turtle Rescue." I have seven NPC turtles set up thus far, including a cameo by another famous NESmaker turtle. I might have to tinker some colors to get him to show up better against the sand.

"Well, believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid, and...I went ahead anyway."
- Crow T. Robot, Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie


This quote has been in my head all weekend. I took a huge, crazy gamble with my game this weekend, and it's finally paying off! I have a LOT of fun surprises in store for the Turtle Rescue demo game that will be released as part of the NESmaker competition. I don't want to spoil much, so in this update I will simply confirm that the original racoon boss has survived the transition to 4.1.X!
