Hej,

Malte and I participated in the GBJam and made Scrapped Robot for it in 6 days.

It's a gameboy themed videogame about being a scrapped robot searching for a new hat. The game includes infinite generated levels, exciting boss fights, 10 hats with different attributes and unlimited adventures.

Have fun!

Very curious how you pulled this off!

The code is a mess right now. Some reuse of old code from me and a very big memory footprint.

That is awesome! Each new level looks quite good.

How much time did you spend on level-generation-code? Is this the first time you've done this kind of work? Did you find any resources on the subject that were particularly useful?

Uff, two days I guess. Lots of try and error and reuse of old code.

I once implemented an random walker based on Vlambeers map generation. I took the result of that and used an cellular automata descripted in here. That last site has some more information about different approaches.

I once did an edge walker that detects shapes in a stupid way, but was enough to look for the biggest island.

Then i randomly places obstacles depending on their neighbors, so some little woods and stone groups appeared. The placement of the entities works in a similar matter.

After all that I run a little pathfinder from the start tot the end point and remove all obstacles in the way, so the end point is reachable.

Thank you for posting those two links.
The automata one is particularly interesting!
