This will cover one of the many aspects of creating content for the game Cobalt Dungeon. In this video we'll generate a room using Tiled and then convert the content into a format usable by Cobalt Dungeon. We'll take a quick tour of the games CMS and import this data. Finally we'll actually load the room in the game and play with it.
