I have made an interesting discovery that I had not planned for and I now think that I might add it to the game as a feature.
Apparently, because of the way my movement is handled, something very interesting happens if my character builds up enough speed while digging. With enough speed and a ramp of any kind the player can essentially launch the character across very long distances.
I love how this just happened by complete mistake but I now have something incredibly fun to add to my game. Player response about this has so far been very positive so I’m very hopeful that people will enjoy it.
If I had to choose one moment to explain why I like making games so much, this would most likely be it.
