A late "Merry Christmas" to all of you!

With my laptop still not fixed, I'm not in the forums as much as I used too.

Enjoy your holidays!

Start it after the game jam right? as for level ideas: Id love a prehistoric level, other than that most things have been done I think.

Level ideas,

Canopy of a Manic Rainforest

Candy Land (Hey, why not?)

From an army of tanks, eventually getting on a huge enough tank to board a fleet of airships, a la SMB3v(Not the same equipment, though)

Gold Mine

China Shop/Auction House

Free Fall

Also, how difficult should the final product be, in theory?


I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.

Fine Art Vs. Illustration

The way I moderate and maintain the section goes something like this
Fine art = traditional media, with a few digital exceptions
Illustration = Digital media with a few fine art exceptions
3D = 3D programs
Pixel = Pixel style
Other = Stuff that doesnt fit in any category (fractals, which should be banned by the way, and sculptures or other stuff)

depends how complicated i make it, i want each level to be a respectable length, so they should take a time to play through, difficulty will only be if i take kakashis idea of incorporating water, or a water level, of couse theres the problem of getting the art, and enough of it, and making people submit it with transparent backgrounds so the background is consistent, really, its more up to the imagination of the person making the part of the level what they want to do, i can incorporate tunnels, buildings the player can walk through, water, coins/score, enemys, environmental hazards/damage but id rather keep this one simple, if its successful il make it an annual thing

if you mean difficult as in gameplay, sorry for the rambling, i want to keep it kinda simple, the art is the main focus of it, but i dont want the levels to be completely flat, i want some variation, full rules, facts etc will be in the real thread, sorry for the rambling

TL;DR dont ask me questions

I was thinking: wouldnt it be cool to have just one level, where you can enter portals to play that same level in a different setting (underwater, prehistoric, space w/e) off course, each different setting would have its own little differences (low gravity in space; cool dinosaurs in prehistoric) so that you would need to visit each setting to complete the level. That way you can make the art a more central thing.

Platforming programming is quite easy and fun, to be fair.
Most platformers tend to be unimaginative, no challenge, and the level design ugly as sin.

i want each levels layout to be different, give the game a bit of variation, ill use the portals thing for going between levels, may put in small animations between levels to cut up the gameplay a bit, but i wont start this till after the game jam is over, also had the idea of easter egg levels, like super meat boy did, and one of the fany pants did

Make every level a grass level but change the color of the grass.

No wait, do a level where everything is big, a level where you're in the internet/computer, an acid swamp level, a city made out of music related things but mostly music notes...you know, the basic ideas.

Yeah, I upgraded from Vista, and wow, it's running significantly faster.
Restarts in about a minute, and from log in screen to fully loaded desktop is barely 20 seconds.
The bar at the bottom is rather simple to understand, I don't see what's confusing about it.

Windows 7 is quite great, yeah. At first I was having some trouble with my Wacom and Photoshop, but those kinks got ironed out pretty fast. I was an early adopter, so bugs were to be expected.

Also, I've been spamming this link like hell, but Hyptosis showed it to me and I found it really rad.
