slightly smoother movement!

I realized how jumpy horizontal movement was, so I added a bit of friction. Flows a lot better with the camera this way.




I'm trying to come up with more ideas for abilities Rocco and Renwick can perform other than the double jump...I'm sure it'll come to me soon.

Wow! It's neat that it's inspired by the 3D platformers, but with a 2D perspective.

Neat how it's directed toward older audiences, as well. That's awesome!

@Flex$ - Thanks! The Old Cartoon Network game style is exactly what I was going for. There will be lots of polish applied later on.

@Amanfr01 - Thanks! The way I see it, all platformers are fundamentally identical, you can make a more immersive gaming experience when you add a 3rd dimension, but either way you're still just hopping around! The perk of a 2D platformer is the camera angles aren't ever an issue. LOL

@Danton - Thanks! Funny that you mentioned 'dessert'  that's actually the name of the strip club stage I designed for chapter 1 of the game.  "The Dessert tit bar and grill"

@Danton - Honest mistake! From the looks of your work, you're far from idiot staus.

They don't always have mission essential items but chasing them is pretty fun. I've made them a lot smarter than they look! They are inspired by Spyro The Dragon's Egg thieves.

I love how Renwick perches on the UI when they're not helping you double jump - that's a really nice touch.  The art style looks really great!  Somehow it reminds me of MS Paint, but not in a bad way.

@Garlicguy Thanks man Smiley.

@Valar05 Agree on both accounts. re MS Paint... agreed, the look is super clean but still has that pixel art craftsmanship to it, very nice. Really helps it stand out.

@ Valar05 - Lol thanks! Absolutely everything was drawn using the game maker studio graphics tools...and a laptop mousepad using my fingers! So yeah..mspaint basically. Haha.
@ Danbar - Thanks! I'm a long time N64 gamer. I miss the rare days.


My overall intent with the graphics wasn't to make them breath taking but good enough for the player to understand what they're looking at, yet goofy enough for them to not be taken too seriously. The game is supposed to be comical after all.

Am I right in thinking the fart sounds play along to the music?

I'm having some fun playing this, I have to admit.

You are correct! The fart sounds mimic the melody of the stage music. Same with the Gnomes whistling along to the stage music.

Inspired by Banjo Kazooie. Being near certain things causes them to affect the music or play along to it.

Glad you're having fun Hoj! Thanks for playing.

NEW GAME PLAY MODE - CHASE/RIDE STAGE

Every game needs a change of perspective. I've been working on a way to have Crash Bandicoot like hog ride stages in 2D and potentially some chase stages. I'm excited to work on stages with this new play style.
