ARE YOU READY FOR SOME SUPER-SECRET WIP’S!?

WOW!!!

Okay for real I want to post some (keyword: some) of the artwork in development as I get to it and this seems like the best place to keep it all in one place. I’ll post some of the already-seen stuff from the demo and more as I go along. Feel free to ask questions~

ENEMY SPRITES

fieldwolffoxxy

Wolf and Foxy were some of the first sprites I did. I was trying to really nail down the wacky style I wanted to use for the rest of the game. I really digged the idea of giving all the enemies shadow’d faces. Overall, I feel like none of the other sprites so far really hit the style as well these guys. But maybe that’s just because they’re simpler in design than the rest.

doctordoctorfull

For the witch-doctor I tried to push for new, more unexpected body shapes and colors. I feel like the posing of his sprite and limitations of the pixel art don’t quite show off all the detail of his design but that’s my own fault. I opted for this sort of violet-red/orange-ish color scheme as my gut instinct said “purple” but that was too easy and obviously calling from other media. I wanted to find some more unexpected colors for a spider/voodoo-doctor combo.

GATOR2gaterfull2

The “Gaters” have been a favorite so far from what I’ve been hearing of yall~ And I’m so glad too, I love them so dearly. I forgot what really set me off on the idea to make these radical gaters but it was divine intervention. They were going to be so bland…what’s more they were the first more “silly” idea I had (back when the game was more reasonable) and it really got me thinking “Hey…I can just do whatever I want with this world huh?” and boy I’ve been taking my own advice and running with it.

OGR1OGR2

So much to say about “Bebsi” and “Boca-Bola”. Yes, the inception of “finding an ogre in a swap” absolutely came from a Shrek joke lets get that out of the way. The meme-ish names came from my partner jokingly offering “Bebsi” when I asked them for suggestions. And they should really know better than to do that.

'Bola dragging a swooning Gater-Chick behind her is a direct call-out to all my gay friends who retort “step on me” to every powerful woman that enters their lives. Many of them did, predictably, react as such when I revealed 'Bola to them for the first time.

POLLY

Polly was supposed to be one of a series of “eating contest champions” each with their own different food to contest with. That all ended up being too complicated and it was scrapped just to Polly. My partner suggested the idea for her and then joked about her being the wife of the announcer which then became cannon.

Originally Polly was the chicken-wing eating contest as a morbid joke but without the other contest options I figured it wasn’t really as funny and pie-eating contests fit the trope of the game more.

DEMO BOSS SPOILERS UNDER THIS TAB

Angel

“The Angel” Is the first, secret boss of the game~ I came up with the mechanic and built the whole fight before coming up with any sort of visual design for them. In fact this boss was built very early on in development but I never came back to do the visuals/writing until the week or two before releasing the demo. I didn’t really have a solid idea for their personality until I asked my partner, Orange for their opening line and they busted out with “Za’ bitch” and I just built from there.

You’ll definitely be seeing more of them in the future.

The cherubs and wings are actually photos of baroque cherubs that I’ve pixelated down. I felt the mix of the games shapely style with real-life photos would lend to the world-bendy weirdness of the fight.

There’s one cherub in particular I need you all to see, thank god I got a screenshot cuz I can’t find the original again.

CHERUB

enjoy.
