Title: Project Lantern
Post by: LukeWall on March 09, 2018, 07:34:05 pm
Good day folks!

Just gonna dump a few assets here from Project Lantern, a dark fantasy side-scroller with a lot of focus on lighting and narrative. Iíve been juggling this idea around for a few months, and at the end of January teamed up with a mister Andrew Clearihan who is helping me code out a demo/POC of sorts. The funny thing is, I donít currently have a CPU (only an IPad), so the plan as of the moment is that I keep working on design and story elements and chocking out assets, while Mr. Clearihan does the dirty work of coding the project in GameMaker Studio. So far weíre on a slow but steady track but hopefully once we get a second programmer and, most importantly, I get my computer back (long story), weíll be able to make steady progress.

In the meantime, feast your eyes!. . . Or just give them a snack, totally your call. Not one to judge.  :crazy:

Thank you very much. Iíve been having a lot of trouble getting backgrounds to turn out the way I want and been in kind of a slump. Seeing an encouraging comment has given me a little bit more hope. Thanks a bunch!

You're welcome. I'm actually having similar issues. Characters and animation came a bit easier, but backgrounds and level design feels like it requires a whole different approach. Good luck man.
