So a meme really took it eh?
It’s a nice open ended theme, but I can’t eek out a creative or gimmicky design around it. So as per the usual I think I’ll use the LD as an opportunity to test out some technologies I’ve wanted to play with (Flashpunk and Flint. Also buffering inputs). Going to go with a simple side scrolling feline beat em’ up. Something pretty similar to Dad N’ Me.
A snapshot of my inspiration
How do you creative folks manage to knock out non-derivative LD titles anyhow? I need help working my creative muscle.
- Photoshop and Paint.NET
- Likely some sort of online music generator (http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/otomata possibly)
- Flash CS4
- Flashpunk and Tweener(unless Flashpunk has some built in tweening methods) for my libraries.
- Flash Builder
- Chronolapse – Yay timelapse!
Any suggestions on good sprite sheet / pixel art tools? Should I use Graphics Gale?
Oh, and a parting workspace snapshot:
