I've made a better introduction video that actual explains the game rather than the old silent film one. It's embedded in the details section.
The next video will get into a bit more of the detail of the map making process. Speaking of which:
There is also another new map in the repository map4.csv, we're up to 5 total now. I still want to make some more, but I'd also love to include some community maps if anyone else wants to create some.

I've updated the repo and the files section with another new map, map3.csv. There is also a small tweak to the main code py to guard against the player moving off the edge of the map if there isn't a wall there.
In building the new map I did run up against a MemoryError when trying to load the map. map3.csv is about as big as maps can be right now give or take a few rows or columns before it gets to be too much and throws the error during loading the map.
I think we can make the map loading and storage a bit more memory friendly by assigning number IDs to each tile type and then using a dictionary to look them up. I'll probably explore this avenue and if it's fruitful add it as an update to the main CSV Tilemap Game project.

I've updated the repository. There is a new map (map2.csv) as well as some better positioning control of the camera. I'll be working on some more maps, but if anyone else out there wants to try their hand at creating some and would be so kind to share them I'd be grateful, drop a comment here or make a pull request.
