Hi everyone, besides my obligations, as some sort of personal exercise, I have plans to begin a small side project in the next following 16 days. Deadline being May 3rd 23:59:59 (GMT-3) The idea is to make a single zone from scratch, complete with all its parts; tileset, gimmicks, badniks, level layouts and a boss. This time however, you may greet songs you've heard before, or even varying-quality art. Open to suggestions and all, I will just do what I can in this regard, because instead, I'm honestly going towards using my imagination the best as possible, and attempt to give what I consider to be fun gameplay. Why? Because I'd like to experiment with other different ways to hold the workflow, practice and discipline my self-arrangement skill, have an excuse to quit self-restraining myself for perfectionism/shame and practice actual pixel art for once no matter how gets, but most importantly, to get creative. Besides I'm beginning a new graphic design career, got to practice the most I could, so why not do it by doing what I like to do most? Then, who knows, perhaps the final result could be worthy enough to take part into another project, and get audiovisually overhauled in the process. I have three questions though: - Would you allow me to use a pre-customized S3k engine? Or must it begin from a clean disassembly? - Would you allow me to recycle sprites or scrapped concepts from previous games I've worked on? - If any lower art standard doesn't fit your expectatives, is this hack not worth the matter, then?
