Mr Shaigai

by

We're just starting a new game. It's called Mr Shaigai and its about the main character (red), being stuck at university and wanting to go home. The game will be his journey across dangerous lands to find his way back to his family. He'll start off as a very shy character that isn't very powerful (and will have a different face and colour to reflect his mood) but over the course of the game will grow more confident and stronger! I'm wondering what you think of his design, and if there's anything I should work on, or any other things you can think of! Also note that the background isn't mine, I'm using it as a placeholder right now until I design something specific for the game.

Started working on a new underground level, made the game art from scratch, with the exception of the "boss level" at the end. That'll be getting changed next :D

More levels!! More enemies!!

From watching your video, here's what I see... When landing on enemies, there's no upward force for a bounce, you just fall right through them! Also, the platforms you jump on, they blend in with the background. But the colors are superb! I'd recommend focusing on the controls most of all. Since the player will be looking at the main character almost the entire game, focus on that. Make the animations clean, and the controls tight. Best of luck!

Thanks very much for your comments norseware, you're totally right! Hopefully if I'm able to put up a new video you'll see we've worked on those issues :) Let us know what you think! :D

I find that the level Design could have used a bit more work, sorta dull in some areas. I'd give a 7 outa 10

I can't help but feel like the main character is a rip from Super Meat Boy. I'm pretty sure I won't be the only one to get this impression. I would suggest changing his concept a fair bit more until you have something more original which you can call your own.

Other little details such as having torches moving instead of being static would be a point to consider too.
