So what I have decided on is a platform game and what Im thinking of is a cross between Earthworm Jim & Contra Hard Corps. What makes this appealing to me is that for one I have to design it and that will hold my interest.
Secondly, I can make some pretty nifty (unrealistic) characters for the game using my 3D skills. But...the game is still going to be a 2D style platformer. Aside from my game design skills I really want to show off my animation skills with this game...that is going to be pretty cool.
So my evil plan is this:
1. Start on the 2D game engine
2. Start sketching out the main char/ bosses & level's
3. Start desiging the game
*That should get me going but the order in which I work could vary each day depending on how I feel.
Now I actually feel like I have something I want to do :)
Oh I forgot to mention...Im seeing the whole thing celshaded...old school looks really work for me!
