NGArmy/Clay v Stick short

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...

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.

I really like these clay animtion flashes!

There sooo cool!

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.

I liked it

nice work
