This is a useless devthread for a game I hope to finish soonish.

These two screenshots are how the game currently looks ingame.






Test map featuring sexy gradient.



Currently you can run and jump around, climb some ladders, etc.
I dont know what the hell the game is going to be about yet, but I have a few ideas.

I dont have much to show yet, but I'll keep you guys posted when something gets done.
Hopefully this will be finished in a week or two.

Looks like fun.
Have you got the character sprite animated ? he looks cool.
Also, what is that pink thing in the test map (not the ladders  Tongue)?

Looks very nice! The clouds (those are clouds, right?) seem to stand out a lot, though. Perhaps make them a bit transparent?

Much better now, thanks!


If there are any pixel wizards here who could help me out with the climbing animation, I would love you.
I just cant get it right myself, so help would be much appreciated.

Please save me!

It makes a whole lotta difference.  Smiley

As to the direction of the gradient, it doesn't need to be realistic. I think it can be 'wrong' for artistic purposes. I mean, if Matias likes it better like this...

I like the idea of the background becoming lighter as you ascend. It sort of gives you a feeling of progress, you know?

I think he means that the character's head is kind of hard to read; what's eyes, what's nose etc.

yes, that.  i had found it really...disconcerting...especially the brownish pixel in isolation near the top-left.  I think it fits reasonably well with the art style as a whole (which I find difficult to settle on my feelings for (which is probably not a bad thing...)), but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Also: I do like the gradient(I mean the original one; I don't know if I have any especial feelings as to its value over the inverted one presented later).

The concentric squares on the blocks, block variation, selective grass, flat swirly clouds, and a few other things all seem to be heavily inspired by Fez. Tongue

Still looks nice from the last time I saw it!

But, a question that was forgotten:
Also, what is that pink thing in the test map (not the ladders  Tongue)?

That little flag with the pink !, what was that?
