The Sabreman of the Underwuuuuurlde!

on: August 13, 2007, 03:45:47 am
AND NOW, FOR SOMETHING NOBODY COULD POSIBLY CARE ABOUT

A few months back...(maybe even last year...not sure :p) I had an itch for working on SOMETHING with Dr.DerekDoctors, the only project that popped up then was a remake of this game called Underwurlde THAT SUCKED ASS. but since I was inpatient I just went with it even though the game sucked ass  :crazy:
Here's some proof of how it sucks

Here's a topic with something Derek made for it.http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=3323.0

I think I  psyched myself up with the idea of making a game with revamped gameplay and stuff on top :crazy:.... and then the guy who started the project disagreed :yay: ::)

Anyways I made a gif showcasing template poses for each action
and stuck him in a mockup
That was as much as I really did because I had to drop out of the project cause of....real life stuffs :p dont worry about Derek tho, he eventually convinced the guy who started the project that the game really did suck ass XD

So....earlier today, even though the game sucked and whatnot, I was pretty proud of the sprite design and I had a lingering need of animating Sabreman, I had thought up a bunch of ideas about what to do with the game even tho....you guessed it; it sucked ass XD

So I animated 
Sabreman with a Run Bow Throw Slingshot
They animate like that because of the way the game is designed, he walks and shoots too fast for me to draw the specific action.....check the YT vid if u wanna know what I mean http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzhfQKFBErg

I think you should make a game of your own with these sprites, because you are right the game sucks as so why not beat them? :D

hahahaha, thanks man, you have bumped just a wee bit of life into my topic :p

Heh, well  Sabreman is so generic I wouldnt even have to change the sprite, besides RARE took a different direction with the design http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabreman which...SUCKS ASS XD

I probably should do something with it...that is, asuming I will have enough time being i my second to last semseter in college...I could probably make atleast one mockup or something.

Looks good. I always loved Underwurlde on my Spectrum. I still play it once in a while - it can be completed in 10 minutes if you exploit the bug where you can bounce through the guardians, and thus save a whole lot of time.  :)

Underwurlde has been on my list of games to remake myself, but like the (at least) two previous authors who've begun remakes themselves, I've also realized that the game is actually a bit boring and it probably wouldn't be worth spending all that time on remaking it, when there's so many other games that are much more deserving of an update.

Still, I like your Sabreman. He looks good - almost like a miniature Fred. :)
