Before the platformer can be started, resources must be created. These assets will focus primarily on the character, which in this case, will be a vampire named Lil' Vlad.
A new project should also be started when creating this new game. Again, a new project can be created by navigating to File | New Project or pressing Ctrl + N. This will bring up the Project dialog window. This project is simply titled Platformer.
Relating to the finite state machine mentioned previously, Vlad's character will have three sprites associated with it, as shown in the following list:
spr_vlad_idlesprite for the idle state
spr_vlad_walksprite for the walking state
