Yes, I use that in-screen thing for debugging now, but it might also be useful for other text feedback to the player later. Maybe with a nicer font.

The 'logger' class can also log to file (if a filename is specified), then I can track the the messages with a simple 'tail -f' in a separate terminal. But I do most development I do my laptop without a second screen. Then open windows cover each other to quickly.

I continued with the project again. Only a small addition for now: Ability to build ladders, using 'space' key.

Hi! Thank you for sharing. Successfully compiled and tested under Windows 64. Noticed a small thing: if you press the up arrow and in the same time the right arrow, the right arrow has no effect.

Good luck! I can't wait to see more. But even in the current state, it's already a beautiful program. :)

That is correct. I can try to change it, but I fear that that code will be more complex.

Not much changes to my game. I spend several days trying to figure out 'git'.
I think I understand the 'git workflow' now, although nothing fancy tried yet.
Tried 3 different free GUI's for 'git' at first: Very confusing experience. Then bask to basics: Via the command line.
Now I managed to integrate git via Ubuntu Mate's file manager 'caja', after several problems, I got it working:

Current code on GitHub is probably not working now due to my tests.

For what is worth, I use GitHub Desktop to sync with my repository. Very simple and integrates seamlessly under Windows. You specify a local folder for the repository and it will sync it automatically with GitHub. Then, create a pull request, drag and drop files to the local folder and it automatically creates the diffs for you, which you can then commit. Very easy and painless ;)

@badidea,
Keep up the good work. I can't seem to get excited about programming at the moment but drop in occasionally to see what is happening here.
@Paul Doe,
I remember your 3d playground in your GitHub repository. Made me realise how far I was from being able to go beyond 2d graphics.

Can recommend the Git GUI https://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/ SmartGit for Linux (also available for Windows and Mac).

Some update to code:
* Health bar and fall damage
* Wiggling flowers
* Rudimentary pick axe action
See GitHub link in first post.

I switched back to command line git commands, just as easy for now. And added a ssh-key 'trust'.
