Hi there need to choose a color for the main character of my game. I have a selection of nice colors with the characters head. For now the game will be called project platform. choose the number u like best or recomend a completely different colour whatever u want! also any sugestions for a game name, or any other ideas that would be cool are welcomed!

Peace(Walker) Out My Bromies!

Is it me or does 6 look like Squirtle, and 8 look like Barney the Dinosaur?
I think that my favourite is 3, but there isn't much in it.

It would help if we had some sort of body or look at or a screenshot of the game just so that we could choose the one which fits best with the colour scheme you are already using. Otherwise it is very hard to be sure.


Doomsday-One, working on stuff better than preloaders. Marginally.

Why don't you just include all of them and make them unlockable?

Number 2 looks like a Charmander. The likeness is uncanny.

You've drawn the '1' backwards.

Go for 2, 3 or 5. I've thought 10 minutes about that, seriously.

Also, this. Or something else that includes playing as all the colours.

It depends on the color scheme of the rest of your game. Every one of them could look good with an appropriate color scheme.


Indescriptive topic names have left me in despair!

He was kidding, I am not:

DO THIS! DO THIS! DO THIS!

And then make it hard to get :)

Or... different colors for different power ups maybe? Or the player has to be a certain color to unlock a door, puzzle style? Tell us about your game.

And I like 8 if I have to chose just one, altho... we don't really have enough red game heroes...

Or you could use a colorTransform object and allow the user to define any colour they wish....

But just like K-guare said, they might pick an ugly color, we can't let that happen!

I have taken into account the top colours tested them all no a small backround i quickly put together and am giving them to you for final testing. Unfortunatly i cannot add them into 1 post so they will be in the following posts. ALSO I am not the best proggramer in the world so if anyone would like to collab with me then it would be great (there will be an official request post later on unless i get one now).

Here is a little treat that i got from ur posts
