@Lucinda, thank you! I've neer noticed that typo so it took me a while to figure out what you meant :p
@Hmpf: Thank you  :)

Sunday update!
I've been feeling a bit bogged down with the weather in Sweden lately. It's very dark now and hard to get motivated to do something creative like this. So progress has been incredibly slow, and I realized this week it's also partly because I lack direction. I only had loose ideas on how I wanted things to look, so I went back to the drawing board to design some new areas with concrete examples, and I've come up with how I want almost the entire rest of the level to look. I still have to design two more areas, but it's nice to feel some motivation again.

Attaching one of the mockups of a new area. Not sure if I'll post too many screenshots from these areas as they are a little more late game, but I have a hard time stopping myself  :P2

The background for that is perfect.

Really nice! And two tilesets that (IMO) are fairly hard to use interestingly, too!

Thank you! :)

Quick update: I haven't made much progress since last update but I keep thinking about the level. I don't really believe in new year's resolutions but I really want to complete the level this year, preferably early this year.
There are a few reasons why I haven't made as much progress as I want to, the main one I believe is the gloomy winter we have here. But I think another reason might be about making updates in this thread. Somehow I feel like I put more pressure on myself by wanting to show the progress I've made. So I think I won't update this thread too much anymore, but we'll see.
The last few days I managed to sit in front of the editor a couple of hours redesigning an earlier area. I seem to be finding the joy in level design again, and the days are getting brighter from now on  8)
