I kind of like making little mistakes and then trying to make them into something else.

I end up filling up a whole page with random doodles and forget what I was going to draw...

Oh yeah, random mockup:



I was just screwing around with 2x2 pixel res and small tiles (they were 16x12 before I double-sized them.)

It will probably turn in to a puzzle-platformer. That's if I can work out this stupid tile engine...

But I'm having troubles with the "marble" tiles (The brownish floor ones). Any ideas on how to fix/replace them?

I always do that! "Crap that line shouldnt be there /reaches over to bottom of page and presses to fingers down/ Damn machine! Doesn- Oh wait..."
How long can the floor creak before it loses its voice?

ok, looked around a bit more

Take a rectangle and join one pair of opposite sides -- you'll now have a cylinder. Now join the other pair of sides with a half-twist. That last step isn't possible in our universe, sad to say. A true Klein Bottle requires 4-dimensions because the surface has to pass through itself without a hole.

I understand how it's built now(it's easy if you grab a strip of paper and do step 1, unfold and do step 2, what's imposible is to do step2 after step1), but I still cant quite picture it.

I wonder if there's any software with which you can atleast look at it from every angle...I saw something like that for the 4d equivalent of the cube once, it was a stereogram (so that it could be truly 3d) and it was really trippy to watch the way it folded and unfolded on itself before your eyes.

Haha, it's like an optical illusion.

Math is so fun when it doesn't suck like geometry. I like trig and weird 4D stuff like this. I wish I could take a class on it...

You could try looking at some Castlvania screenshots and see how they do it.
