  1. Hello! I wanted to share some early concept work for one of the main characters of my upcoming PC game, The Golden Bow(l). Here's his announcement trailer: Oddy's role in the game Due budget issues, Oddy can only afford half of his cosplays costumes... And that’s the reason he’s Always wearing his faithful diaper. ‘’The Cosplayer’’ has a core role in The Golden Bow(l)’s story. Every single night of his childhood, Bowie (the protagonist) would listen to Oddy’s narrative of The Golden Bowl. Because of this odd character’s strange accent, the boy misunderstood the story and was led to believe that it was all about some mythological Golden Bow. And that’s how the most pointless and disappointing journey began: Bowie, being so passionate about the art of archery, decided to devote his life to the pursuit of the legendary artifact – one that does not even exist. By the end of each boss battle, Oddy will appear wearing a different cosplay. He’ll be in charge of teaching Bowie new skills and giving him useful items that will aid him in his journey. The main point of the game is humour and sarcasm, along with interesting level and bosses designs. What do you think of this character? Would you like to suggest a cosplay? I still have a bunch of empty slots for his cosplays, so your suggestion can actually go into the game!
  2. Hello! In my game, there's a character that loves cosplaying. Everytime you meet him ingame, he'll be wearing different clothes related to animes/cartoons/games/movies/people. He also dislikes pants and is always in his underwear and flip flops, which is one of the ways you can recognize him. His physical shape also changes everytime you meet him, as a part of a joke that is explained in game. This design choice will be a core part of the game's story and I wanted to know if there are any copyright issues. He'll never reveal which character he's cosplaying and it won't be super obvious. The player has to guess who he is (i don't know if that changes anything copyright related, but I thought I should mention it). Here's what 3 of his cosplays looks like (einsten, luffy and popeye): Does anyone know if I'll have copyright issues with this? Thank you!
  3. Hello! I'm the developer of The Golden Bow(l) and the protagonist of my game, Bowie, told me to post this. Here's a video he recorded a video just for you: About this project The Golden Bow(l) has one purpose: to make the player smile and have fun from the moment he picks up the controller. Everything in the game is a joke, and there's also a bunch of references and hidden social criticism. It's still in the early stages of development and I plan to release it for PC and consoles. I still do not have any release date confirmed. The beginning of a pointless journey Bowie's father, an artisan, used to tell him stories about a legendary golden bowl. Due to his father's bad accent, the story was misunderstood, leading the boy to believe that it was all about a legendary bow. Ever since his early days, he always dreamed of being an archer. The thought of possessing this unique weapon filled his heart with the utmost joy. He then decided he would dedicate his life to find the mythological bow, embarking into a dissappointing and purposeless journey. The Social Media Not sure if you want to follow the game social media pages? Bowie explains what you should expect from them to help you decide! Instagram: thegbow.l - https://www.instagram.com/thegbow.l/ Facebook: The Golden Bow.l - https://www.facebook.com/TheGoldenBowlGame/ YouTube: The Golden Bow.l - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi4Yw1DXcd6GHGlwXYIwfTQ/ The basic gameplay mechanics Keep in mind that the art is not final and that this scene is just for show. You'll be able to unlock new abilities, outfits and gameplay mechanics as you progress. There'll be memorable bosses (such as the Insta-Grr, Dickbutt, The Political Extremist and more)! Each world will have its own theme and everything (the design, music, the enemies, and the bosses) is going to be developed according to that world theme. PLAY A SHORT SAMPLE You can see how the gameplay feels by downloading it (see link below). In the tester, only the most basics mechanics are avaible, feel free to judge them and give me your feedback. The avaible level is just for testing purposes and the art is not final. DOWNLOAD IT HERE: TestMap1.0 Thank you for reading this far. My heart will be always open for feedback and criticism. Hope to see you around!
