I like the character designs. They're very engaging, and I like the fact that they all have such different body layouts and sizes.

I'm definitely intrigued!

What sort of focus does the game have? The different character abilities make me imagine a blend of puzzles and combat.

Thanks! That was very much the goal.

Currently I am thinking of a procedurally-generated setup, but...
There are also level design things in mind.

There will most definitely be a blend of puzzles and combat, though :]
Along with a dash of multiple solutions, depending on your team.

Local multiplayer? As in same computer, or LAN?

either way, good for you for making a coop game! the world needs more of them.

I think he means IP connection between two hosts.
(but I've been wrong about what he could me before)
Just if I remember correctly I played a beta version of this project a long while ago.
But that was back when only the jumper was implemented.

So he might have just converted the project to LAN/local keyboard.

Are the sprites still going to generate their base color by the players input name like it used to?

Sit down and relax,

This is going to be losing the online capability (unfortunately ._.) which means there will be no naming, and no need for colour generation (despite the glee with which it filled me).

Local multiplayer = same machine.

For now, anyway :D

I like the smoother design. (A)
For some reason (B) is not as easy on the eye.

I think (A) is better. It seems smoother, as Hangedman said. (B) seems like he's almost crying or something, to me, because of the darker shadows under his eyes.

So, my vote goes to (A)  Beer!

That.
You didn't even write that much about your concept, and I already want to play your game.

And definitly (A)! (B) looks like he didn't get his portion of sleep last night.

Well now I'm going to have to go against the grain here and say B. He just seems to have a little more character to me.

I like (A). (A) is an awesome weird creature with no head, and (B) is just a chunkily proportioned unicorn.

I'm sorry, allen. I'm afraid I can't do that.
I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.

Ant: I appreciate your opinion! Nice to see that my silly idea did not get entirely... one-sided against. That sentence did not make a whole lot of sense.

TRY IT HERE (click! it's flash)
This version features temporary control schemes and two characters:

Pinky with incomplete CHARGE ability.
WSAD
C jumps
V charges when at top speed
V also cancels the charge

Clyde with HEADBANG ability.
ARROWS
K jumps
L headbangs (press rapidly but not too rapidly)

Also, try:

Clyde can ride Pinky. You can do some crazy stuff with this (trying jumping off of a charging Pinky)

---> HAVE FUN WITH THIS FEATURE NOW WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE (Pinky-riding is probably going away forever unfortunately)

DON'T MAKE PINKY JUMP IF YOU ARE RIDING IT DOESN'T WORK

AAGHH

IT'S HORRIBLE

THEY'RE ALL DYING

AAAHHHGGHHH

Oh, neat. This already feels pretty good. I think maybe a bit more air control would be good for smaller characters- this amount seems good for big hefty guys though. It makes them feel more massive.

Well... Even though I see that [A] has already won, I have to say that I think would work better both artistically and in game... He just looks like he's about to fall over now, and he seems to lack personality without a nose... wish we could have both Sad
