Really cool theme, already promising entries, had to give a try !
--- GAME DESCRITION ---
A race where you have to use the limbo bending technique in order to power up your jumps.
Extra power if you pass under the hurdles.
Might expand to other athletic disciplines later if inspiration comes in.
The focus for now will be on building quick prototypes and having fun with the animation software Spriter
I'm an illustrator so the graphics will have a minimalistic approach, trying to focus mainly on gameplay and animation. (limbs are fun)
Contextual animations are a joy to do with Spriter since they've added the bones and I/K. I feel like a kid again playing with paper cut puppets. This is my fuel.
Since my game design skills are almost non existent, I hope to figure out how to add some funny variations to the sports action during the process. It just allow me to get started quickly.
I'm open to critics and suggestions about any aspect of the "project".
Being a really clumsy coder, I will use Construct 2
to build the game. Also it will be easier to share the prototypes.
Eventually I could port the game to Flash (thanks to Flixel
) if I get stuck.
--- CURRENT STATE ---
// CONTROLS //
- arrows LEFT/RIGHT : move
- press "X" : action
- press and hold "C" : limbo mode
- release "C" while on ground : jump (exit limbo mode)
- "R" : reset level
- "T" : go to last checkpoint
While in "limbo mode", or doing stunts, the character speed is increasing and the camera is dezooming.>> Playable test level <<
