Hey all! Just created a new account and very much looking forward to interacting with you all.
I've had an interest in making games for a while, but nothing has stuck until I got my playdate and I'm feeling really inspired to try this time around. Pulp seems like just the right level of complexity to get started.
I'm making a prototype in which the player is walking on a tightrope. As such. They can only move up and down (blocked by wall tiles on either side), however I'd like to implement a mechanic in which the player can lean left and right to dodge hazards, etc.
Thus far, I've created transparent tiles in a column on either side that the player can move into, but what I want to see is that the player "lean" into the space when the button is held, and then "lean back" onto the tightrope when it is released.
I'm having a hard time getting my head around PulpScript as a noob. I suspect this might lie in the event.dx variable, but beyond that I'm a little clueless. If anyone could help me here I'd really appreciate it!
