Handmade Hero and Level Editors
Edited by Daniel on Reason: Changing Icon Again
Hi Casey,

I have watched many episodes on Handmade Hero, and seen many people asking about whether there would be a Level Editor on Handmade Hero. The recurring answer is 'no, because Handmade Hero world is procedurally generated'.

I personally do not like playing games where the world is procedurally generated; I prefer to play games where each challenge and each part of it is handcrafted. Therefore, I'm writing my own Level Editor using what I have learned by watching Handmade Hero.

Unfortunately, many questions arise which are unanswered on your show. So here goes my plea; what would it take for you to consider making a couple of special episodes of Handmade Hero where you code a simple (or maybe complex) level editor?

Best regards,
Daniel

There is pretty cool stb_tilemap_editor.h one header library from Sean Barrett. If tilemaps is enough, check it out for ideas how to write level editor.
There are two videos that show it in action:
