I'm working on a horisontal shmup and I'm looking for somebody who can make a parallax background for the final level. Here's an example
of what one of the other backgrounds looks like. In this one, there's a few layers: a sky layer (which doesn't move), several individual clouds (that are generated randomly), the repeating mountain thingies and 3 layers of ground moving at different speed at the bottom. I had imagined a green, slimey ocean planet for the final level but what I was able to draw on my own looked like shit. I'm also open for other ideas for the level though. The resolution for the background is 400x250. If you do a good job, I might be interested in having you touch up/re-do the backgrounds I've already made myself too.
I'm also interested in having somebody create a few small enemy sprites, either with some kind of animation or a completely still 1-frame thing. Each enemy is basically a "head ship", a head-shaped spaceship with a small hole instead of an ear and usually an exhaust on the back of the head. Here's
a look at some of the other enemies in the game (sorry about the blur on some of them). The ugly dithered look is intentional - I don't know why, but I think it's charming somehow.
If either of these jobs sounds interesting, e-mail
me some examples of your work and a quote. Feel free to ask any questions in this thread.
