BoMToons, coder extraordinaire, has consulted myself and Tom and has written up a very useful outline for the project, check that out as well as a few other tidbits at the NG Shump project index.

Some of the highlights:
Half of the levels will be side-view and half will be top-down, alternating.
All levels will be selectable from the beginning.
Upgrades will be purchased in an always accessible store menu.
And lots more...

READ UP!!

--

ALSO: SIGN UPS END TONIGHT!! If you wish to be inclused on a team, you need to post there.

OOOH yummy... thats some great stuff poeples...
another idea for avoiding the one-hit death scenario could be an auto-regenerating shield, that will stop all bullets, but every bullet it stops depletes the shield a bit... the shield regenerates if youre not being hit.

Ah get out of my head.
If you're think regenerating shield, I can see how that works on Halo since it encourages players to hug cover and not go shit crazy with bullets.
... which is the opposite of a continually scrolling shooter :/
You could stop screen, kill enemies, then get a continue to the next enemy screen, but that would be sluggish. Plus each enemy wave must be hard enough to potentially get you from 100% to 0% health.

Changed my original cell concepts so that they're now top-down.
... and I'll prob scrap the circle shaped theme, cos it'll look like an aggresive game of marbles. And it's needlessly restricting the design.
Think I've done a better job with the playable sperm concept.

Also had the idea of having the cell nuclei indicating the rewards for enemy kills (like health, gold, kinder surprise).

Looking sharp TOAS, I'm loving it.
Did you see my idea about the antibodies? Thoughts?
Also, I was thinking about maybe having a virus as the stage boss...

I actually know somebody who is a programmer, or, at least, knows actionscript. I'll tell him about this.

A really rough sketch idea I had for a post apocalyptic enemy,of a tank which shoots forward missiles , with a guy on the top who has a rapid fire gun constantly shooting to the right of the screen so you have to go around to the left to kill the tank.

Ill clean it up with thinner lines and all that stuff later, I felt I had to post my idea though.

How about making the Post-apocalyptic game one of those RTS 'wave release games' similar to Crimson Warfare or Warfare 1917. Also I have an idea for a post-apocalyptic melee unit that is outfitted with random crap, I will do both a realistic and chibi version.

But isn't this game supposed to be all sidescrollers? Or would you shoot oncoming waves or something?

There were more than a few sign ups, so getting everyone who wants in sorted into teams will take a bit, but I'm on it. Once we have teams in place I'll want to see some serious brainstorming for the team your on, not just for ships, enemies and bosses but the level is just as important, I'd like to see some cool environment ideas ranging from the look of the background and foreground to level hazards such as moving parts, stuff you have to shoot to get through and winding passages, if you've played shumps before you should be familiar with these concepts.

It actually is pretty random. Look at the 6 level types we have, and that gives a whole lot of options for designs.

That would be awesome for you to be on board

I Made a news post about this, but I figured I would post it here as well:

Here are the teams for the Newgrounds Shump project (formerly called the Art Forum Game)

If you are displeased to be on the team you were picked for send me a PM, I tried to put people on the teams they wanted to be on and also tried to have a good mix of experienced artists and artists with less experience.

Yeah Post Apocalyptic.I need to fix up that tank I drew now.

I have 1 idea as of now: Some of the obstacles could be toppled over cars or fences/barbed wire fences to shoot through.

although I am all up for keeping tight contact, I would be concerned with the file sharing that would be needed for this...

watch the following movies
Heavy Metal 2000 (or the original Heavy Metal)
Judge Dredd
Akira
Blade Runner
Ghost in the Shell

Those are all pretty good reference of cyberpunk

Sweet teams! I just got a read through BoM's game layout page, and it sounds like it's going to be very well done. Once you assign team-leaders, I think it might be a good idea to dedicate a part of their user-page for team communication.

Or maybe we can just get an "ArtForumShmup" account made, with different news posts for each level, that way it's basically like a mini-forum for everyone involved.

This really is very exciting though, it will definitely be the most elaborate and legendary thing to have come from the art forum!

Im not really experienced with steampunk as a definite style. This will be awesome.

Also, Im not sure, but I think my msn isnt letting me add anyone, so if those in my group with msn would add me instead that would be greaaaaaat....

That's actually a really good idea!!!
And it will be like a table of contents on the main newspost.
I wonder how we're gonna communicate all this.. Hmm. Soon to be found out.
As for me, today and tomorrow = midtermssss. Off to go study some shit.

Mucho apologies to Re2deemer, I totally left him out of the teams list, my fault. =[

He had requested the cyberpunk team, so that's where I put him. ;]

I know one of you probably already found this, but I was using it earlier today as a matter of fact, and this could be really useful to your guys' stuff.
