This week we are going to add a friend for the player. We’ll refractor the player creation code to reuse as much of it as possible and we’ll also create a new collision layer for the character and setup collisions between the player and his new friend.
In this tutorial we will start to bring our little Viking to life by working on animation. We want to be able to, at the very least, have a walking and idle animation (although we will soon add attack, jumping, falling etc.). We also want to be able to easily and efficiently switch between the animations based on the players current state.
