[C+C] sprites for a game.

on: November 05, 2014, 11:29:18 pm


these are the character designs for a fan-game i'm doing. it's supposed to be simplistic.

these are the inital sprites:



and these are the new ones i made:



they are made to fit RPG Maker 2003.
as i said, the game is supposed to be simple and not too complex. rm 2003 cant handle complex

Nice job! :)
The latter ones will be better or not, depending on the tileset they will be overlapping (the noodle legs will be nearly invisible if placed in a floor without enough contrast)

noodle legs is the best description of these sprites ever

i plan to make the game somewhat of a side scrolling platformer, which is why they only face left and right. i had made the first ones before i thought about doing that. i'll try to make a mock up soon so others have an idea as to what the game is like.

If the game is going to be text-heavy (being Homestuck and all) then you do right by sticking with RPG Maker 200x

But if there is going to be actual platforming, I recommend switching to another simple game-making tool, like Construct 2.
(and then you'd have to create something for the text boxes, but it'd be minor work)
I say this because even heavily modified RPG Maker XP games felt wonky when implementing gameplay from other genres :P

In any case, good luck :)

Noodles look a lot more slick :y:

Not sure why you've gone for cave-story blockhead though? The portrait and these sketches aren't styled that way and I think you'd have room for rounded heads with those proportions.

i say platformer because when i think of that, i think of side scrollers and 2d. itll still have the typical 2003 battles and such.
ill look into construct anyways because i need to have more tools than just 2003 haha. i actually have xp and vx ace but they dont work on this small netbook.

the sketches were merely to show others the intended costume designs. the style is going to be consistent.

the game is at 200% but you can toggle it so its at 100%. im not happy with what i tried with the walls but its a start. all there is behind the text box is black.



i have a 'grid' at 20% opacity so you can see how big each tile has to be.

id REALLY like some help on this. im going for minimalist and i dont want a palette with 107461876340187 colors. to better understand the enviroment/colors, you can go to this flash here

First thing I notice is different things in the scene have different perspectives.
I'd encourage u to shift perspectives for different scenes but  make each scene look consistent in itself.
