So a new update, though not much of one to publish at this moment. We are currently ironing all the bugs out of our demo before making that public, and recently, we just posted out game into the Steam Concepts. We will post it into greenlight once the demo is finished, but for now, I do have new screens!
So a few days ago, some folks mentioned that this game looked like a rom hack. of course, I took it as a compliment, but needless to say, a rom hack it is not. So I added the bit of footage in the beginning to show where it was being made. Now unless Gamemaker can make rom hacks... I dunno.
But I digress, I also added new music to the youtube channel (thanks to Lewis Thomas), AND I added a couple of updates, thanks to my programmer Steve Spahl.
I learned that game creation is a lot of fun, despite how difficult it is. We have been working on a game for a while now, and things have finally been turning out for the better. My programmer has been ironing out a lot of bugs, I have been popping out sprite work and tile sets, and my musician has been throwing out tunes like a friggin machine. The demo comes close... The alpha is still being worked on, but it will soon be completely playable!
For anyone who does see this and is interested and looking at it, this is the video.
"But mascot, it's just a clone!"
Well yeah... but I figured instead of just making a fan game from scratch, might as well make our own property. I am essentially making a game I want to make. But I mean... I might as well let other play it to.
So I love Little Big Planet. The game makes me giddy like a little school girl and is one of those few games that actually didn't dissapoint me with huge hype. I'm looking at you Brawl... No, I think LBP really lived up to it, and I love it. And then came Ghostbusters. I love this game. It makes me equally giddy. And then I thought, what if there was a Ghostbusters Sackboy? So I began to sketch it at work.
Got this far...
Then I stopped. Well, recent news of POSSIBLE Ghostbuster LBP content than inspired me to finish it. Though it is only a pencil sketch. Maybe I will color it when I find my pen tool for my Bamboo.
Think you could guess who is who? >_>
It's amazing what having references can help you acomplish. Even if the proton blasters aren't perfect.
Hell, maybe one day my LBP art will get me a crown, cause my level making skills are only sub par. THough I doubt I would use the crown, so I imagine it won't matter much none. But I really enjoy doing LBP Work. I even did this one up... at work...
I thought to myself, what if I start doing other peoples sackboys for one big project. I tried it once, but no one was able to help me. You know, if anyone is interested, post a picture of your main sackboy and I might be able to get my big project done. Also post your PSN name. When (or if) the project gets finished (hopefully this one will be colored) I will post it on my deviant art account, along with all the PSN names. It's my destructoid screen name.
