I Am Making A Game

Recommended Posts

Hello again, after much deliberation I have decided to do something more with my art, so I'm going to design a game. The purpose of this thread is to get your opinion during development to make it better. I'm looking to publish this on newgrounds, and it won't be perfect as it is my first game. I'll start with a level design sketch I did to start.

 

The idea me and my pals have come up with is Jacob, a small boy, who stumbles upon a smoothie machine on a very hot day. The other kids are jealous however, and want a share in the delicious drink. It is your job to defend the mountain using a variety of weapons and upgrades. This sketch is of the mountain level.post-26137-0-93657400-1430166584_thumb.png

It looks great! I love the detail on the wood, your art style is really nice and refreshing, it reminds me a bit of Dan's Style but its unique enough to be your own, Seeing your work really makes me want to improve myself personally in design. Keep up the great work!

Big fan of your art style so far, like Salt said it reminds me a bit of Castle Crashers but a lil' brighter.

 

Looking forward to seeing more updates on this as they come

Dang, this looks and sounds amazing.

Smoothies are amazing.

 

The idea of the game looks rather fun, I'm looking forwards to seeing the progress throughout it, and the finished work.

Add a flamingpapercup with a lock for a face in it and I can promiss you a fairly large group of animators will upvote your game like no tommorow. #bribery.

 

It's also looking very nice so far. Interested to see it in actual action.

Can't thank you all enough for the positive comments, thank you!

I will be adding objects into the game to commemorate you guys during development to brighten up the place

You're art makes me look like a fool. No wait, everyone's art makes me look like a fool. I stink at drawing. Thus, I look up to those with this kind of talent.

 

Keep up the good work! :D

I want to be bitter because I always wanted to be able to draw like Dan Paladin, but I can't be bitter when your art looks so dang good dawg.  Like seriously, you have tons of support from our tiny community.  I really hope this actually becomes a thing because your art alone is awesome.  

 

I was curious, though, do you have any experience with making actual games?  Because if not, I'm sure you could find someone to help you out on Newgrounds somewhere.  You show them the art you've made already and I'm sure someone would jump on board.  Not many people do both programming and art, and I'd hate to see the project fall short due to inability.  Just my thoughts.  

 

But really, keep up the work, man.  You keep at it, and it means I can finally successfully kidnap Dan and you can replace him, then people will never realize he's locked in my basement.

Thank you so much! 

 

As of yet this is my first ever game, so I have very little experience in making them, but you gotta start somewhere. Sound and art is pretty much covered, but programming is still a problem. If you could recommend someone that would be fantastic, and thanks again for all the positive comments!

You are not a fool. No artist is, but I went through the same faze of thinking my art was worse than everyone's. It just takes time, but you will get there :)

Haha thanks for the nod! Much appreciated! Everything looks great, one thing Im wondering about the game is that as far as the store goes is it something you will be able to click on and buy upgrades and tools from, or will you have to sneak out of the mountain between attacks to buy supplies?

The idea of the game is a wave by wave system, in between each wave there will be something like a 60 second timer before the next wave where you have to dash to the shop and make a quick decision on what to buy. It's a concept I haven't seen in a game so I thought it was a good idea.

Does anyone know how to upload an animation to a post?

 

Anyhoo I've added a floating golden ghost for golden ghost, and a torch besides the tunnel that is animated with the same fir as the cup
