Two movies for the price of one! My first (proper) game, and a Clay/Stick combo stop-motion movie.

The Game: Thrown together for the preloader, I'm really pleased with it as my first game. If you can hit more than 3 tanks on level 20 you're doing better than me 8 )
The Movie: Has taken over a month to complete from conception to submission. It was originally going to be longer, but I got fed up with it. If it's well-recieved then I'll work on another episode, with scene changes and more action.
I hadn't done a claymation or stick movie yet so I thought I'd throw the two together and see what happened... and, once again, made life very difficult for myself. As far as I know, this is the first & only movie on NG which combines sticks & clay, and, after spending countless hours trying to synchronise the buggers, I can understand why. Still, it's possibly my best animation yet.

Apologies for the file size, I did my utmost to optimise everything... I don't think I could squeeze it any more. The stick figure (George) was created using Swift 3D. The clay figure (Brian) was created using.... ermm... Plasticene. And lead split-shot.

Hope you enjoy this, please vote fairly (you KNOW it deserves 5 =). Thanks. Oh yeah, and check out my other submissions, I'm going for NG's most varied artist... suppose I should do sprites next...

Nice job!

Man, those were some tiny tanks. Started getting zero hits around level 18. Final score: 63095/91583
The claymation was pretty cool too, but hey, who's the wizard? Hahaha.....

Thanks GuineVir! The wizard is my uncle. And yeah, level 18+ is HARD. I may turn the preloader into a full game with more enemies etc... if I can be bothered...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

great effort

not very funny at all though. keep trying :-)

Denvish responds:

It's not supposed to be funny, OMG are people seeing it as a comedy? It's a serious film about the trials of wandering through life in this dark miserable century....
no it's not, it's about a little clay man hitting a little stick man with a lump of wood.

There sooo cool!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

damn good

That was pretty good how you mixed claymation with the computer graphics. It probably took some time getting them to work together. good job.

Denvish responds:

Thanks. Yes, it took friggin ages.
