You know that feeling when you accidentally leave your treasure in a tree :0 - GAMES.

I like what you've done so far, I specifically like the floor tiles, the way you have it now conveys more 3D space than before. Could I add, please edit you post to include the TODO list and list of ideas, saves people having to go back pages.

a3um and surt: your ideas are great and beutiful, but we have to stick to one style. If we keep changing the style midway, the project wouldn't ever be done, that's why we decided on a style first and plan to stick with it. I really do love them though.

I think a3um's latest edit is right in the same style with the original tiles. I don't think there's anything wrong with more tiles of the same concept: Levels done with only 5-6 tiles are boring.

And surt's is just a little sketchy.

I fully agree with Gecimen. -- Multiple tiles of the same theme are way better for a level. It quickly gets boring when you see only 1 grass or dirt tile repeated over an entire level.

There are bouncy mushrooms in Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic Rush Adventure. Both in the first level if that can inspire anyone.

Well here's something I started, but never finished. A giant tarantula. I never got around to recoloring it so that it would be more spidery, but if you think the sprite is any good, I could give a go at fixing it up.

Now I'm a bit confused. Do we keep the old tiles or take A3um's new tiles? We can't have both it's too much work and they're not compatible.

@Noburo Your tiles don't fit the jungle theme.

Aaaarrrghh!!! I accidentally hit delete on my post.....

Edit: Ok, recovered my post by hitting the back arrow a few times.

Beehive and a lantern.


Also, how does everyone feel about having a public Google Drive folder to store completed tiles? All files are viewable and downloadable by anyone, but must have a Google account to upload images, which we can only allow certain people to upload, or leave it open for anyone. Also, you can download the Google Drive desktop app to have a local folder that syncs all files.

I went ahead and set one up so everyone can see how it would work. Also, I went ahead and split up a3um's awesome terrain into tiles, which I included with a few other tile sets I uploaded to Google Drive.

A3um's and the original tiles actually work better together than you might think. Sure they can't be used side by side, but as separate pillars they work as they are fairly close in style. As Gecimen stated earlier, the more tiles there are to work with, it will provide more variation.

As far as the tiles go, the lantern is intended to go with the tent/camping area, and a beehive is in the first post as an idea.

Well apparently we were working in parallel as I also tuned a whole bunch of the work done thus far into usable tiles. Note that these were designed for my game mockup which is currently functioning on 1 layer so there is a bunch of overlap that could be eliminated by having multiple layers. I made only minor adjustments to have better transitions an a greater ability to interchange tiles.



Here is a screenshot of these tiles working on a single layer in game.



PS: Special thanks to Craftypixel and Squirrelsquid for the amazing additions to the tileset. I basically redid all my tiles just to include this stuff.

I'd go with tile variant 2 ( the edit) and with the original character style.
I like the more realistic proportioned one, as a sprite.
But I think for a "general generic jump n run game", the body features are too defined, personal, and not generic enough.
Also the "boxier" characters are more cute, and thuse more suited for a broad audience.

I've continued tweaking the tile sets, and went ahead and threw together a mockup with Pyxel Edit. I have uploaded the tile sets in PNG format with transparent backgrounds, as well as Pyxel Edit tilesets. Pyxel Edit tile sets are under "Other > Pyxel Edit Tile Sets". I'm going to continue to add tiles to the sets as I have time.

@Noburo, Nice. The background looks a bit... Plain, I guess. Needs a bit more detail and scenery, like clouds or hills or something.

Plus, don't we need a few weapons? I could get started on a sword or a dagger for the main character.
EDIT:
Ta-da, one shiny sword, and dagger, for the Hero. Feel free to edit it if you want. Might be a little, Ah, Small.

Hello All,

If you could stick to the 32x32 tilesets, just like the background that has been uploaded to the drive, I will be able to drop it into the game-engine.
The background worked pretty ok, but the foreground tiles and the objects need a lot of work in graphical editors to get it to work.

The engine can produce Android, Flash, iOS, Windows and Mac native applications.
At the moment I have a crash on the Android version (on Galaxy s2 and tab note) but the flash and mac should run.
The iOS app only works on my adHoc devices and I can't publish it for the rest of you.

The easier it is for me to drop stuff in the scene the easier I can create levels! (supply both left and right animations and tiles for instance)

Hey M.E., all of the items uploaded to the Google Drive should already be spaced out into 32x32 tiles. I wouldn't say that anything currently uploaded is a final tile set, it's just something to play with. Which tiles are you referring to as the "background" tiles? Also, how many different layers are you working with? This knowledge will make it a lot easier on us to know how to combine tiles.

Edit: Also, I played around and started working on a basic soundtrack. It's still need quite a bit of re-recording and mastering, but I just wanted to throw some of it out there. It is in the Google Drive under Other > Sountrack.

Edit: Edit: Ugghhh.... I just realized that the beat in the Jungle Beat I made is very nearly a recreation of the music used in Donkey Kong Country. Bird chirping and all.

Hello Noburo,

Thank you for your interest.
I'm referring to an older background tile set:

The width and height of these can't be divided by 32:
171x190 terrainwatertrans
190x189 terrain
Mockup can't be made with these tiles without editing them!

Here is my start on some sloped tiles. I started with the dirt tiles because I thought they would likely work better. Obviously I only textured the first one, but if anyone is willing to help out it would be greatly appreciated. Sloped tiles are severely underused it platformers and I think this project could benefit by including them.

    Hello,

    The current status:

    - (internal) Multiple player-charasterics : bird-flight, jump&Run, no-jump, fight or ignore
    - Scene switching
    - (internal) Inventory system -> select item you need to advance later
    - push or fight or transparent : Change characteristic of enemies dynamicly (fight or ignore)
    - Navigate to scenes, doors, areas
    - Point & Click

    The direction of the game will be very broad as there will be very different graphical designers.
    One wants to fight - skill-like , others want puzzle games and others want an adventure.

    While waiting for tiles, assets and animations to come I'm using rough placeholders and
    examine the effects the graphics has on the different devices.

    Again only flash and android at the moment:

    Whoa, impressive animation! These things are hard to do and I think you do it great!
    The body seems to be a bit bigger than the original but of course the original body can be resized as well.
    Maybe it needs to be slightly faster? 6 frames? Keep the air time but only 2 frames of floor contact per leg?
    Also, you are making it hard by inventing your own walk... Usually cats land on their front paws before their back paws, and therefor have a very stretched out moment in the middle. Check out this ref maybe? By stretching out the cat less it will not go as fast as in this example. (so its more usable for a game)
    Also, I uploaded it to the wiki

    guima, I really like the bridge. I've made an edit as shown below. Don't be afraid to play with foreground objects, they can really make even a simple game seem more immersive . For example, having a rope in front of the character gives a fake sense of 3D space!



    Edit:
    Saw you're earlier post, for someone who apparently sucks at art, you sure show a lot of potential.

    Of course foreground tiles would need to be seperated from the background tiles in order to be usable..

    Guima, the rope looks 'better' on the more detailed version, however it is most important that they are consistent with the chosen style. It is for that reason that I suggest a flat color as in Jim's edit.

    @all:
    Ohh, this topic requires some cleaning up. I am coming to help out soon!

    Nice bridge.

    Unfortunately it isn't 32x32 pixels at the moment and it appears that there are mixed background colors going on.

    If the base of the bridge are seperate tiles from the top I should be able to let the user walk on it as long as it doesn't curve to much.
    If the ropes are on different tiles I can have it on a different layer and let it appear in front of the actor. Hopefully this will look '3D' like as you want!

    Best regards from
