No prob...I went back to play recently and it defiantly lacks something in single-player. Time to start work on Elfsquad7 2012, eh? :)

Weird...hadn't heard of that one before. Your playing the PC version, right? If your tryign to play with the controller, try pressing ESC on the choose character menu and it should stop waiting for player 2 to pick a character.

Let me know if that dosent work.

Ahem...not on the falling toys, you'll notice...just on the moving objects that can be grabbed or will hurt you, so you won 18ish% of the battle ;) Someone wisely noted that the creation process, when gone unchecked, results in Star Wars Episodes 1-3, so I appreciate you raising your concerns :)

Hopefully you get a chance to play it...I think it turned out to be quite fun (outlines aside) ;)

ScottTykoski Oct 25 2011, 9:19am says:

It's all about hitting toys with your gun (to wrap them) then collecting the wrapped gifts as they fall. You only have so much time (usually around 40 seconds) to do this, so getting more time (by grabbing Sundials that randomly get placed around the level) is also important.

When you have 4 players going it feels a bit like a holiday version of "Super Smash Brothers", only you're saving Christmas, not beating each other up.

Sorry Theon, gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.

I tried a pass with the border effect off (no white edge or shadow) and it just ended up looking like any other retro-style game....not that there's anything wrong with that, but I might as well try doing something somewhat unique.

Plus I personally like the way it looks :) To each their own.

Yeah, if the demand is there then why not? Though I'm sure you run the risk of oversaturation/IP fatigue, but when has that stopped folks in the past (I'm looking at you both, "Sims" and "Guitar Hero") >|

Thanks Luke - I got sidetracked from Helicopteropolis for a bit, but all my work here will be applicable over there too (UI systems, more data-driven gameobject routines).

Plus I'll finally get a game done and out the door ;)

ScottTykoski Sep 30 2011, 11:25am says:

Yeah, certainly better...I'd just watch for any line on your background. IMHO, the grass strokes and (possibly unintentional) outline on the brick wall are what make the background feel out of place with the 3d characters.

ScottTykoski Sep 30 2011, 9:57am says:

Digging the move to the Chibi models, for sure, but I feel there's too harsh of style contrast between the backgrounds (sketchbooky with 3d elements) and animated models (cell shaded anime).

I see more of a "Tales of Vesperia" watercolor/painted look to your backgrounds (no hard line, mask 3d assets to the best of your ability, use 'washes' instead of solid colors). This would make the characters pop nicely and match their level of quality (I know...easier said than done).

But character work is spot on - awesome work!

edit: This shot in particular...
reminds me of this pathway shot from your game...

I know man... unfortunately the design calls for very obviously colored gifts (combos are pulled off via color sequences), and black+red (the core Genisis colors) are only used on enemy objects.

At least I tried to hit a nice "Sonic-Blue" color :)

Digging the steam-punk idea and layout of those HUDs, but I'd see if your portrait artist could take a stab at them. You'll want them to fit better with the character artwork they go with, and right now they may be a bit too 'rough'.
