First off, thanks so much to Luis for letting me host this collab Now lets get down to business.
THIS IS AN ANIMATION
You know how on video game covers, it shows the
1. System it is able to played on. (EX: Ps3 or Wii, etc)
2. Rating (E, T, M)
3. Companies who created it.( Microsoft, Unisoft)
4. And an overall cool cover with the games name ( Gears of War, Halo 3)
Now the idea is it to mess around with these video game covers. It will be a parody on them. Lets use Newgrounds as an example. This part might get a bit confusing. You, the animator, will make a game cover, that makes fun of other things. So, you would have a blank black screen. You add a game system logo on to it.(EX: like the Xbox Suck60) Then you add the companies that made it.( EX:Idiots who eat turtles) Then you put the rating (EX: Spammers) Then you put the games in. So using Newgrounds as an example, you would put the NG logo in the middle of the case then beneath it you would write "The Game"
This will be a still Image, the animation is coming up.
Get it so far?
That's not the end of it. Then you will go on to make an ANIMATION that looks like your are playing Newgrounds the Game. THIS IS NOT A GAME. ITS AN ANIMATION. SO again, using NG as an example you would get creative and make a short 10-20sec sec animation that shows you playing NG The Game. I might extend the time.
So, if you don't get it here are the steps.
1. Complete Cover of game.
2. Create an animation of the game.
You know how to start the game it says PRESS START?
Well you will do that, but instead of start, the person will have to use the spacebar. The START screen will look very well done and creative. Then, when the person presses Spacebar, The animation starts.
So, imagine Mario, in world 1-1. Instead of Mario its, Tankman. Instead of Goombas, there is a famous NG characetrs. Instaed of little bricks, there is a picture of tom fulp. Instaed of fire balls, you shoot the word FLASHPORTAL.
Get the idea? We are basically doing parodies over game but in a New way.
If you still don't get it, we are basically doing this. We are making a parody on something. Then we get the game play of a famous game, then we combine that with well known things. Don't worry, it will all come together.
STAGE SIZE= 550 x 400
We wil be using AS3. Don't worry if you don't know it. Their will be minimum programming. Such as clicking the spacebar to start the animation.

I MIGHT add more parts. This collab used to run on my userpage so some parts are taken, sorry.
Simple, keep this at a 13 year old level. You can use some major blood. But know major language, or scenes.
This is a very good example of how the animation will look.
Theirs only a few problems with this one
-Its not long enough
-It does not have a START SCREEN, it just shows the cover as the start screen.
This collab is not as simple as others and does require some thinking.
If you want another example.
Think about Obama in side scrolling action game VS John McCain. That wold be awesome.
Lets get animating!
