Mecha Spider Island pixel art

on: May 02, 2011, 01:13:48 am
Hi all! Just thought I'd post up some of the pixel art for the latest Lazy Brain Game, Mecha Spider Island. This game is far bigger than previous entries, but still uses the same crazy palette, which I have finally retired ;) Any and all critiques are always welcome :)




If you want to see it all together, check out the game ;)

I like the style you chose, Reminds me alot of MegaMan.
I'm assuming you used Megaman as a base. I would try to Push your own style
a bit further. The font is still to much of a ripped version, not sure you changed
it all. The Title is still to Megaman Original, and I suggest you change that all together.
Would like to see the characters in game... This could point out any contrast issues
you might have going on. Anyway, looks like it would be fun to play. :y:
<Xion> I can't see it why can't I see it

You should get into animation, dude, all these paper-cutout-like enemies make the game quite stale, get some animation in there : D

I love your palettes even if they're garish as hell, there's just something about your games' look that I like. Keep going, dude

I avoid animation like the plague lol. There are plans in the future to show off some of my animations skills, but the game would have be built around it, since animating takes so much of time away from coding, designing, etc. I could attempt to get an animator, but most of them like money :P Anyway, thanks for checkin' it out :)

These are all the sprites and background tiles for Mecha Spider Island, which you can play here...

It also has some pretty sweet box art ;)

I think my last comment kinda came out wrong, to better clarify, working with animators (or anyone else really) is extremely susceptible to flakeyness when there isn't any money ;)

Thanks for checking out the sprites! If you think they're epic, just wait till you hear the music ;)

Thanks for playing!!
