Alright, this stage is the Sun Temple from Aquaria. The idea is that there are two gears, on the side, rotating either clockwise/counterclockwise, as well as moving up and down. Players can stand on the platforms and fight to their hearts content. In the background is a window into the watery world of Aquaria, populated by a myriad of fish and turtles.
Linked is a quick mockup of all the pieces put together. http://john-sandoval.deviantart.com/art/IndieBrawl-SunTemple-164553850
Here are WIPS of all the pieces.
In all honesty, I'm debating removing the big-ass statue. It's blocking a good portion of the window. I like it, but it'd be best replaced by another, smaller statue.
EDIT: the pictures arent showing up, so I'll just hyperlink what I've worked on. Feel free to take stuff and edit the shit out of it. Some stuffs come up, and I'm probably not going to be able to work on IB for a while. I was hoping to do the whole thing from start to finish, but that's probably not gonna happen.
