I'm re-doing a project I abandoned a long time ago in Dark Basic Professional. It was great, but in the end it became unmanageable and there was no way I could really finish and keep it stable. Even though it used directx 3d, so far my re-make in Construct2 looks better in 2d. Because of Construct and the fact that I already have most of the game graphics and mechanics done, I'm doing in days what took weeks to do in the original.
Here's my development blog
Here's a video of how the original looked:
Attached a pic of the current version in Construct 2. I think there's a lot more potential than there was in my original prototype and I can finally make it live up to what I set out to do.
