Scirra is running a game jam with Newgrounds this June. I've never officially competed in one before, and I've been meaning to get something finished while working on the Superhero Game, so I thought I would enter. I've been basically working on it during lunch breaks so its not going very fast. With the time constraint, I've decided to keep the major decisions to a minimum. I'm not pouring over design choices or the general look of it. I've designed a basic character and I'm moving forward. Its kind of nice to finally be decisive on a project.
The above art is some rough sketches of death animations. I've built my character in Animate Pro 3 to make animation quick, so hopefully these won't be too hard to knock out. The below art is the character. I'm going to tweak the design a bit, but I'm liking the version on the right without the lines. It will save me the time it takes to patch the left version and gives it a look similar to Flashback on the SNES that I like.
More to come soon.
