Chelsea Saunders, AKA PIXELATEDCROWN commissioned me to do this character-illo of her character, Roe, from her game that is currently in development! Chelsea is an incredibly skilled indie game dev, so please check out her work!!!
If you’re interested in a commission, please check out my commission info here!
:D!!!!!! I haven’t forgotten about roe, just trying to get better with these monthly projects so I can make her game worthwhile! jones did an AMAZING job on drawing her just from her turnaround sprites, I absolutely love this!
Do you mind if people draw fanart of your games?
not at all, that’d be awesome! :O
now that NTGIM is all finished up I can go back to working on coins for the ferryman proper :0 need to finish building the world - first time I’ve had gameplay planned before it ahaha
thought that the dead in CFTF could take shadowy forms that wander around in a big forest. they have whatever they were buried with inside them, floating around, with the burial coins where they were placed over their eyes as… their eyes. they can wander listlessly for a very long time, slowly losing their shape. or they can end up on the beach pretty quickly - depends on circumstances in their past life. those that find the beach are ready to cross the sea with the ferryman to whatever’s next. the longer they spend in the forest the more they forget that they were ever people, though those that find the beach early on still have little to no memory of who they were and what they did.
maybe eventually the ferryman takes things into their own hands and goes out into the forest to bring back someone with lots of riches and crosses with them even though they aren’t ready. I think that’s when death would have to intervene and then that’d probably be the last trip in the game.
IMPORTANT LAST SECOND GAME UPDATE: more explosion squares
Thank you!!! Music is still being made but should be done by early next week - then I’ll be able to upload it :D The code is commented and ready to go, I hope it’s helpful to you in some way!!
made a title logo for NTGIM! originally it wasn’t so boxy and had less emphasis on the no so didn’t read quite right. I’m happy with the end result though! I like the four players reaching for the gold, I’ll use that as the game’s logo if need be.
the music and sound effects should be done by the end of this week and then the game’ll be all ready to play!
first tries at some character sprites for the ferryman! they can’t speak (aside from symbols) so I want them to be overly expressive while keeping a simple design similar to their pixel sprite. the plan is to stick to the eight basic faces and change it up with different poses and such.
also I kept groaning “what a nerddddddd” while drawing them. yeah buddy you’re totally death’s type keep at it
working on the animal racing game from before a bit more, they want some mock ups of a race track screen. obvs they wouldn’t all be lions, just putting those there as placeholders and to check size. they want strips that loop, gonna try some variations next!
oh nevermind! fixed it. it was because the part of the world building script that tried to make the core layer was using something that was changed when the dirt layer was made, which happened at the same time, and that confused things. poor computer, I’m sorry that was on me. quickest I’ve fixed a problem that I’ve posted about to here though, new record.
thought I’d go back to NTGIM while waiting on tunes for it just to add some extra visual stuff like another visible layer to the blocks, just to make it a bit easier to judge where you are/how deep down you’ve dug. but, oddly, the cube area these blocks are meant to be recognised inside of doesn’t pick up all but one of the blocks in a single column - you can see one block has changed in the first slice in the left column but then. no other ones do. leaving the core layer uneven and skew. can’t have that.
trying to get down what I want the enviro to look like. rn all I know is that I want a big empty black sand beach with fog and big shapes in the distance. needs more colour
ahahaha YESSS!! I love these, spirit lure is my favourite! it’s gonna be so fun coming up with lures…
BREAKING NEWS: early character design too cute, stops game production. “it’s just too cute” says internet star pixelatedcrown. “I’m going to have to cancel the game. it’s. it’s too cute. look at their little hat. look at their little wellies”.
