If you've seen my previous post, you might be wondering if I've abandoned Paperboy. Don't worry, I have not. I've just come to the – slightly late – realization that, before diving deeper into making a full-scale game, I should probably finish the one project I had been working on for years. So I put Paperboy aside for a little bit and focused heavily on finishing Simile Thoughts, a mappack for Mari0. This is what I'll be covering today.
Before anything else, however, I highly encourage you to take a look – and read – into the mappack's main post, over on the Stabyourself.net forums. Here's the post in its full glory. It covers a lot of what I'll talk about in this postmortem, and also has a few pictures of some of the levels if you're curious about the overall looks of the project, since I won't be covering every single level here. If you intend on playing this mappack, I highly recommend doing so before reading this blog post, as it will contain spoilers for some of the puzzles.
