I can't animate, but if anyone wants a voice, then you know what to do.


Always willing to voice act. Make music in my freetime. That's what I get for not having Flash

I'd like to be a part of this. Not sure what I'm gonna do, though. My tablet broke, but I'll try to make the animation as good as possible!

Oh boy, someone finally made the thread.
If a voice actor's needed, I'd like to team up with a decent animator for this.

However I won't be available at all this week. So yeah.

Unless you want me to help write, in which case I can do that too.

PS I <3 Halloween.

Count me in!

I've also been assigned the dutiful task of creating an aesthetically peeling preloader, in the works.

Like I said, the loops are just a joke. I make them in between boring parts of animating. Usually within 5 minutes.

- will replace the background (anyone up for designing one?)

I was thinking either a graveyard or a spooky abandoned factory (the scrolling items could be going across a conveyor belt of some sort)

I made a quick sketch. Does this look convincing enough?

I thought the silhouette of a grim reaper would look cool in the center. If you want I can take that out.

Wow, it looks really good!

Do you think you could take out the grave at the very front though? (it may look a bit strange with the scrolling parts going over it)

Also if you can make the reaper a separate layer I might be able to add some animation to it (e.g. floating up and down)

:)

Got rid of the jumping in the menu (too many glitches)
Also i'm planning on making the items highlight or something when you scroll over them:

Of course.

I can export the image of the reaper as a bitmap. You can then import the bitmap in Flash, convert it to a symbol and do the floating animation.

That would be brilliant if you could :)

Can't wait to get started! A few questions though: Is there a time limit to our part? Also, are we limited to just one entry, or can we make 2-3? I have a few really cool ideas.
