Goodness typography O: I literally know nothing about that; this is turning out to become quite the learning experience

In the mean time I made up some more titles, before you read though, know I once had a dog named dog - so every one of these is going to be at least cringeworthy ^^'

Paradoxical Peckings
The Chickening
nonAvian Assualt
Attack On Therapsids ( xD )
Truly Free Range
Relatively Raptors
Ancestral Aviators
Cluck Around The Clock
A Fowl Empire
Unnatural Selection
Conquest Quest
Mesozoic Flux
Mother Hen
Temporal Oppression
Martial Lawn

more rendering and poultry :D

working on it ^^

I was going the contra route with the title screen, but yeah it is pretty boring, so I messed about with it again today; it now features more space, more time, and less poultry ( I think I could fit a nebulous space chicken in the back?)

I also tried balancing the small type better and pulled the large type apart a bit
Though I don't know how to have the type convey the story of a time traveling chicken or.. anything really.. how does one relate story elements via typeface?

Sorry I'm only replying now, didn't have my computer for a couple days, hence also no progress to report yet (except that I can't animate wings for shit and really need to work on that)

@ Daimoth
Well, damn it, I'm gonna have to this, don't I? Allright then, as soon as schoolwork lightens up a bit I'll see what I can do

There's something that has a crippled cock as a mascot? Amazing

Oh my god. Yes. Definitely. That is awesome. The game over screen could be a plate of chicken bones

Truly the world currently is a horrible place for all of chicken kind and it requires a hero of time to make a change.
The srpg thing was never set in stone so when lachrymose offered a really nice concept for having it as a metroidvania style game, I just went with that^^

I don't know, I felt the palette didn't work too well together so I shifted every shadow to be slightly purple-ish and I kinda prefer it that way O:

Oh I like that :D There could be several headmounted guns inspired by the chickenhead steadycam (now I have an image in my mind of a sniper using a chicken to steady his rifle xD)
And I really like the concept of fixing a mindcontrolling device :D
Plus, less workload: yes please xD

ah dang you're right let me just... there:

no wait..there:

that's better ^^

maybe some day :) I don't think I could find the time with uni being as demanding as it is. I'll definitely keep in mind that there's interest though^^

btw does anyone know the aspect ratio that the 3ds uses for its screens? I like the idea of having two screens to work with :)

concept thumbnail:

I'm thinking it'd be cool having a portrait on the screen complaining instead of a health bar (kinda like how doom guy's face gets all messed up as you get hit) and having that double as a reminder if an npc told you about a secret platform or something. Also I put a music note in which can be clicked to have that dialogue read aloud (button for random chicken noises)

Thank you :)

Hm, I might try that, though I haven't really animated anything this size before O: The last thing I did animate however was a chick so this could become its legacy xD
Perhaps some flapping of the wings could work... *goes off to watch some videos of chickens chickening about*

It's never actually going to become a game due to my easily getting bored of large projects; the closest it could get is probably the mockup, so I'd be very open to suggestions of other genres :) I just said rpg as that was what I thought would lend itself best to a story with a heavy focus on the protagonist's journey. ...actually now I'm thinking that it might be interesting to try and make a genre work that wouldn't be intuitive at all .. a visual novel? a flightless bird's shmup? a cow clicker even? xD So many interesting possibilities... I'll have to meditate on this some more, but I can tell this'll be fun :)

[edit] Ooh, could you imagine a game focusing on diplomacy where you have to make your own image pervade the culture of the past so thoroughly that in the future there's religion based on your chicken and that is what saves them? O: Or that being a choice like what bioshock did with the little sisters, that you could go either for killing your foes or... diplomifying them (yes, that is a word now)
That could be really cool O: ...and I probably shouldn't try to flesh out the mechanics too much for something that won't happen xD

Hi there :)
So I got rather intoxicated last night and dreamt up a game about a chicken which in order to save his fellow chickens from the slaughterhouse travels back in time to ensure that birds become the dominant species in the future. It's meant to be a fire emblem style tactical rpg in which you would recruit dinosaurs and battle early mammals.
And what better way to introduce myself here than to ask for help in illustrating my drunken fever dream :)
This here tactical chicken would be the portrait to be shown during conversation, maybe I'll get to doing a full mockup at some point but for now, this is what I've got:

Not quite happy with the palette yet, especially the reds, always had trouble with red :S
Overall CC and suggestions are very welcome :)
Also, this is my first post here, so I apologize should I have commited some posting faux pas^^
