I haven't, but there's not magic behind it. You need to use it properly.
After all, I think I will release it sometime. Gonna have another look at it to see if can be improved. I remember there was one oddity about it.

The game looks great, by the way :D

It's a cool shader, it basically offsets the image horizontally based on the red channel and vertically based on the green channel, so you can draw a distortion map :)

Wouldn't it be cool if you applied shaders to this shader's image mask?!

Yo dawg, I heard you like shaders, so I put a shader in your shader so you can lag while you lag.

Actually, the technical solution would simply to do a single shader that distorts the background based on some mathematical stuff instead of the image mask. However, in this case the image mask worked perfectly so there was no reason to do it any differently.

Good Lord, the water movement is so fantastic.  Drool.  Any chance of a level editor?  :)

Well, this game have an ASCII level format, so I've basically designed the entire world in notepad. It should be quite easy, the difficult thing is to learn what ascii symbol that represent what in the game. Unless any other party involved with the game have anything against the idea, I'll make the source open too.

Wow, that is pretty wild.  I'll have to hearken back to the old ascii art days, eh?

Will it be the same system for the KnyttWaDF game?

No, that'll be a full featured level editor, like in Knytt Stories. For the new game, I'm going to try the same model as for Knytt Stories, easy level editing. The game + level editor will be free, so people can create and share levels without even having to buy the full game.

There'll be one special mode available for people who pay for the game, with some addon game mechanics that are going to be awesome, but the idea is to make the free part of the game spread and become at least as popular as Knytt Stories. Right now, my idea is that as a free user, you can play the game in two separate Knytt and WaDF modes, and play my own and third party Knytt and WaDF style levels. Then there'll be a third "mixed" mode where you combine the moves of both characters, and levels specifically designed for this mode. This mode is the most fun one to play, but you have to purchase the full version to play it :)

But, even as a free user, you still get a full size Knytt/WaDF type of game.

Yes, KnyttWaDF is not done by any chance before 2012. The Great Work at the other hand is probably 90% done by now.

Nifflas - Your plan for the Knytt/WaDF Level Editor is really amazing. You've already made a massive contribution to game level editing. This new addition will be even more amazing, I'm sure. You're going to facilitate a whole new movement in amateur gaming art.

Out of curiosity, how would the game editor compare to the Knytt LE? Same 8-Layer Tileset + Gradients + COs format?
