I had to change the lighting completly, looks more subtle now :)
Each map can have its own ambient light now, plus multiple light sources.
New Keys: F1 turns off frame limit, F2 turns it on again.

2009-10-15 V0.77 - Lighting Demo
Lighting Demo is now up and (hopefully) running..

2009-10-06 Lighting
After some experimenting, I managed to implement basic lighting to SteamTowers. So there may be some levels where Creeps can only be seen when they are passing a light source...

It's disco time!

2009-08-25 new idea
After watching Platoon last night, I've got a new idea for a game:
This maybe my next project, after finishing SteamTowers (or more likely: this will be the cause why ST will never be finished :D )
