Thinking Combat and Skeletal Animation


Watched some wrestling on break and let it pollute my mind.  I've been thinking about combat and how I'd like some interesting grapples.  Spriter will let me animate the same grapple animation for all enemies so anything I do to one will transfer to all.  There's the opportunity to get creative with it if I'm willing to put the work in.  Well, that and if I can choreograph my player sprite animation with the Skeletal NPC's walking around.  I downloaded some footage of Fire Pro Wrestling Returns and have been going through that to kind of break down what they're doing.  Its really impressive to see what they get away with.

I think I'll check our Mark of the Ninja next.  I'm interested to see how they work and if I should make many more character assets.  More to come.
