After a successful half marathon first Sunday this month, I really came to realize how much I love and enjoy running. Therefore I wanted to do a small project based on my workout data that I have gathered over the past year or so. runviz is a direct consequence of this.
Earlier, I have tinkered with game development, but recently I haven't really prioritized it — a development that I'm not entirely satisfied with. Therefore I decided to combine the two passions and do this small project.
So, what is it really?
Each workout is represented by a small runner (a sprite) that starts at kilometre zero and runs the distance indicated by the workout, of course taking speed into account.
I would have liked to add nicer graphics, especially regarding the background and atmosphere. The background is great, but does not quite have the right dimensions for a proper parallax scrolling background. More background layers of varying distances would be awesome.
