Nope, no Kickstarter! I'm fully employed and doing this on the side so I'm funding out of pocket for the fun and love of it! We'll be going for Steam Greenlight when it's in a reasonable state and near to completion. We might set up a website and donation button for people who want to be really generous but fundraising should really be an issue for this project. Hand Money Left Well, hello there! Hand Money Right

I can imagine this game having a lot of replay value per level because of the concept. Especially if levels are intriguing enough, people would wanting to be able to finish levels as fast as they can. Leaderboard system maybe?

That's a fantastic concept! Very funny chara-design, game design overall actually... and you're perfectly dealing with the handling of the light sources in pixel art, gorgeous.

That is some capital pixel art you have there. You have a wonderful eye for colors!



This particularly I find completely spectacular!
I'd love to see more, please post whenever you have time!

Thanks guys for all of the interest so far! My weekly dev meeting has been pushed back from Friday to Monday this week, so here are a couple of filler animations to look at in the mean-time. Gameplay video coming soon!

Also Thanks Miguelito for the compliment! It means a lot coming from you since I've really enjoyed looking at your past work!

Cool!
I downloaded Gamer Maker a few days ago and I've been trying to make sprites and animate them, so I can really appreciate those wonderful animations of yours

The fourth one looks like he's doing air kicks. Maybe bend the straight leg or straighten the bent leg outwards?

If #4 is doing an extremely distracted or panicked run, how about rotating his head a quarter circle clockwise?  Grin

I was actually going for a more controlled sprint. Just kicking his legs out there for interest but now that I look at it, maybe I should bend one of the two legs a bit so he doesn't look like a chorus dancer.

I've had a little bit of interest regarding audio for the game so I thought I'd post about some of the scratch audio I'm using so far. Here are some links to audio samples that I plan to use for scratch music:

I love the bass walking, cool, dark, smokey feeling of intrigue and tension. We'll have different music needs for different situations of course and maybe even transitioning music when things change mid-play and become more action filled.

Those music samples will fit perfectly. That's exactly what I'd imagine for a sneaky game. What would be interesting is to see what you imagine for when the player actually get's caught and needs to flee..?

Hey guys, here's a super early gameplay video showing basic movement mechanics and introducing Bryson and myself. Enjoy!

This looks really great in the video.

My only critique is that when the guy hops behind the furniture nothing changes depth except the furniture so it looks like that part is just floating on top of everything else, as opposed to the guy jumping behind everything. I think it would look fine if you put the guy behind the floor layer as well since he is drawn on top of parts of that.

Might be nit-picking but it stood out to me Smiley

Maybe you could have the guy vault over the furniture rather than just hop.

Yep, you're right Forsy! For one he's drawing half a pixel deep in the ground for some infuriating reason. In the future, we'll have the character and furniture lighter in front and darker in back to help distinguish them but this is the unshaded view of the room right now.

That looks really good! I agree that it lacks some depth, but maybe the shaded version of the objects solves it. If it doesn't you could also add some shadow to the character, make him bigger/smaller, or add some more 'rows' to the floor so that you could change his 'y' to really give the impression his depth is changing.
