Making a pretty neat sci-fi thing with a little bubble helmet man. It's platformy! It's Pixellated! I have no idea what to call it yet, but I do know that I want to make a sidescrolling dungeon crawler. IN SPACE

I use licecap. It's pretty easy, but kind of records in low framerates.

Looks great so far. I use GifCam for recording gifs. It works great and it allows some basic editing.

Do you use an 8x8 sub-tileset? Looks good so far!

Thanks for the tips! I used fraps and virtualdub for the op, hopefully recording directly to gif will make it easier to capture a couple seconds of stuff here and there.

Love the player, hope they stay like that!

The player is just a test image for now, while I figure out what set of movements I want to make animations for. For instance, in the op the player turns pink and slows down for a few frames when landing on the ground. I've taken that out for now, but it might go back in for landing from long falls. For now though, I made a turnaround of the character:

Got a bit of the ol' twitchy hands

yeah! I tried a couple other styles before settling on this. I like how easy it is to vary up the detail on the platforms.

Nice little platformer you've got going there! Pretty impressive of you to program it in C++ too.

I'm hardcore like that

Spent the better part of the day putting in skeleton style sprites, but I really don't like the way the rotation looks at this resolution. Also, his shoulder seems to... wander. Not sure I want to spend the time to track that one down right now.


So I went ahead and started animating the old fashioned way:


Any comments on the sprites so far? I've left the arm off right now in case I want to animate it independently.

Looks pretty nice, but I think the shoulder swaying back and forth is way too much for a sprite of that size. Also kinda looks like he has his hands in his pockets? Otherwise, very nice and simple design, I like the colors!

As for the running, the feet don't seem to go very far forward on the running part, maybe extend them further forward?

Speaking of which, I haven't heard of Kerfuffle in ages.

I had no idea that that sprite would be so charming Grin
Maybe I'll add it back in as a playable easter egg character. mr. D. Bugman  Beer!

Well, I went ahead and fixed up the skeleton sprite thing

Animation is in the game properly now. Might clean up the interface later, but for now I like the results.
might be nice to write some sort of animation tool so that I don't have to type all the keyframes in by hand next time Tired

Anyone want to try it out in its current form? not a lot to do, but I'd like to hear what you think of the player and camera movement https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/66774144/cavex.zip

Almost forgot: arrow keys to move and jump, d to dash, esc to quit

My lord, when you play the game those animations are as smooth as butter. Glorious.
The game window is super huge though, it doesn't fit on my screen and I have a pretty big screen. Also, I really like the camera movement as far as showing the contents of a single room at a time, but I'm not a huge fan of how it'll stop between rooms if you stand right in the middle.

Fantastic overall so far though!  Gentleman

it's this in 2D. The animation so far consists of 12 keyframes. The arms in the walk animation have their own set of keyframes so that I can swap them out for other animations eventually.
