Love this video! For some reason I get overly-goofy when it comes to Dijkstra and A*.

I really need to stop being lazy and post up the game grid web component I'm playing with, which uses Dijkstra to returns all locations reachable by a character considering terrain.

Thank you for the videos! More, please ;-)
