Game Developers Thread
Okay I know some of you here like to make games so I think we should have a thread for that sort of thing. You know for advice and maybe for people who want to get into developing but don't know how to start.
I mostly work with game maker and just make whatever comes to mind. I don't have plans for any complete games since I'm still in the trial and error phases of learning. I'm also learning python, and will be taking actual programming courses next semester. And I like to do pixel stuff though I'm still learning.
This is a wip idle animation for a dude named bash of the mountains. I'm still working on making it more fluid.
So what are you guys working on.
I think this is relevant:
Also, I'm a complete noob at pixel art, though I really want to learn. Game Maker is fun to play with, but I'm learning Python at the moment. Maya and 3DS and such are still beyond me.
This reminded me that I'm still making a game that I haven't touched since what...early Feb. Surrounded or some shart like that. Maybe I should get back on it at some point.
Also for peeps who use GameMaker, GM 8.1 is out now, and from what I'm hearing, the cons outweigh the pros.
I'm part of a team to create a VN called Foxtaile. I've been busy with this site so it pretty much got the short end of the stick.... but this time for sure! I'll finish the artz~!
One of the art but I'm going to re-do it.
Ren'ai games are like those dating games right?
OH yea. I'm working on this currently.
And that is all.
@Matt: Extra credits is a good show.
@Gunzet: That games looks...interesting.
Added some head motion to bash.
Also this is what he is supposed to look like (minus the bamboo club)
@Jubeh - Looks pretty accurate to me. My trouble right now is getting hair to look right at sizes like 50x50 and 64x64, especially with the length of the bangs I usually do. Also, animating is a pain. Do you have all the frames pixeled in black and white before you apply color?
>>>I'd recommend the Extra Credits videos to anyone who wants to make games. Good stuff.
No but I probably should. I usually just make silhouette with a different color representing each limb so that I can get the animation looking right. And then I draw over those. I took a different approach this time so I'm worried about how I'm going to make a walk cycle though.
looks pretty jawsome James
