Hey guys. Busy school term, really. I can only barely make progress.
I won't be adding a Level 2 soon; I'm currently trying to give the game storyline elements, which will firstly involve making a decent intro.
The intro will show the main villain, The General:

As you can see I'm trying out Cave Story-style portraits for dialogue mugshots, and I'm quite happy with it so far.
The General is a man who arose during the global energy crisis, with his army H.U.M.A.N.I.T.Y. (Heroic Unity of Military Alliances, Nobly Insuring Tomorrow's Youths), to manage energy distribution across the world. But he's a greedy one, and when every village is rationed a pitiful amount of energy, The General and his cronies are living in luxury...
that is, until he is confronted by a mysterious alien threat.
After Level 1 I plan to have our alien hero escorted to a nearby village, which will serve as a home base of sorts (like Cave Story's Mimiga Town, or Megaman Zero's Resistance Base/ZX's Guardian HQ).
You will be escorted by this yet-to-be-named kid:

His little family lives a dark and cold life in the village. Disillusioned with H.U.M.A.N.I.T.Y.'s propaganda, they see you as their last hope to fight against H.U.M.A.N.I.T.Y., in return promising you a home to return and rest.
