1. Continue working on gameplay/mechanics/story.
2. Produce a series of shorts think of Aeon Flux or the animated Clone Wars series.
3. Indiekickstartagogo to hire a programmer.
4. Wizard

Good plan, sir!

If I would give one advice to you, I would say stay far away from C++ and aim for something like GameMaker, Unity, Flash, XNA or similar.

Partially agree with you. It makes sense prototyping game with simple tools like GM or Flash to understand situation with the gameplay. But the realization of project like 5734L3R too complex for tools like that. I mean as a result this can turn into problems (basically a technical problems) that primarily affect the player and his impressions of the game. (Although it also depends on the skills of the programmer ofcourse.)
Your project is beautiful and Unity is a great engine. But I'm so far away from programming (and even from manipulations with assets), that I prefer when everyone in development does what he had better work.

mmm i dunno, I've tried several languages/engines, for 2d games there's not a whole lot of difference in capabilities.  It may seem like it if you aren't familiar with coding.  Game Maker Language lacks classes, which I find infinitely helpful in keeping a large project organized.  

I'm surprised nobody's stepping up to work with you, this project is dreamy.
edit: oh nvm there are.

I'm going to agree with djdolber on this - Unity is pretty decently powerful from a technical standpoint. There's a lot of stuff that it can do that's just too detailed to list as a set of bullet points on a marketing page. Some of that has to do with it being C#/.NET scriptable, which has loads of programming goodness in itself, but there's also a pretty extensive and well-documented engine API as well. Everything is laid out in the editor in hierarchical scene graph trees (very organizable), so you can have nested objects parenting other objects for rotations/transformations (which I've based more than a couple of mind-bending hacks on myself), and scripts get attached to objects like little modules and can be turned on/off in the editor or from scripts. Just about everything that can be done in the editor can be done dynamically from scripts, and the editor itself is very customizable.

It might not be the best choice for, say, the next Crysis or Elder Scrolls game, but probably worth at least a closer look for most other things, including anything 2D.

To be honest, I'd rather see some kind of Anime or something coming out of this.

To me, the grand landscape GIFs etc. always seemed so much more appealing than the actual platformer gameplay scenes.

But C++ is awesome Waaagh!
Besides, C# and Java are very much similar to C++.

But I do agree that it would be much easier to use a game engine.

It's sad but I understand. People, stop pushing him so hard to work on it if he doesn't want to, that won't make anyone happy.

Maybe someday you will find a programmer right for finishing this game, maybe not. Regardless, thanks for being such an inspiration in the meantime, what you did get together was a truly great and unified style that is quite inspiring.

Your image is way too big, with way too much white space around it, to see in the forum. (Update your link and I'll erase this post.)

Ok!



One question, guys! Does this robot fits into the 5734L3R's style?

No. Seems way too cartoonish, vivid... Needs to be darker, more minimal I'd say.
