RE: Graphics

I find that having a solid game idea is always the best approach to making games. Ditch trying to make the artwork (because it's apparent you're not gonna get very far) and work on your programming. A solid story and a great engine is bound to attract an artist eventually. Planning all the sprites you're going to need would be an additional incentive.

I suppose programming (at least for me) would be easier then artwork. Alright, I'm gonna try to make an engine. Thanks for the advice!

But I'm still gonna practice artwork. I've been getting better.

Oh hai. I just woked up.
Here's a picture of your friendly UK Flash Forum Mod team.

As everyone here knows, me and Kirk have a love/hate relationship. We're great buddies and will actually finish this game we're working on by April, but we do like to show each other up on here. Naturally, he does it by generally being a much better mod than me.

But I have the advantage of a camera, teetotallity, and Kirk just can't say no to alcohol.

Not sure what the bigger lie is here, us being "buddies" or "we're gonna be finished by April"

I can't say no to Mexicans either but the looks of it, fucking smexy latinos.

Omg you can totally see my hand.

Kirk attributed his tiredness to being a 9-5 guy which kinda makes sense, poor chap ;)

Also, no you won't be finished by April :p I don't know how much work you've done on it but by the looks of things you were at the concept stage >.> I don't even know what the game is gonna be, it might be a simple game.. but you and kirk are both flash pros so I'm assuming it's a rather big project.

In all honesty it's was about 60/40 work/booze.

I don't know how much work you've done on it but by the looks of things you were at the concept stage >.>

If by concept stage you mean "the stage where kayn keeps coming up with ridiculous ideas and doesn't actually do any real work", then yeah that's the stage we're at.

but you and kirk are both flash pros so I'm assuming it's a rather big project.

Kayn what's it to, but I don't, on account I want to finish it this year.

I'd be interested depending on what it is. I have my hands full with Exile 4 and Essence of Divinity, but i could definetly do some epic artwork for a game depending on what it is.......what is it?

It's difficult to categorise the game, but essentially I'd need a character with simple walking/running animation and with the character at different stages of obesity (slim-fat). Plus backgrounds and a few other bits and bobs. Basically the player runs around eating things ;) I don't wanna give anything away, not that it's an epic game, it is really simple.

I'm in such a sour mood today. I rarely get grumpy but today I am terribly grumpy.

Might be fallout from the happy-go-lucky-obamarama yesterday. I'm not sure.
