I’m going to start off by saying: we ALL love 2d games. We all loved the golden gaming age, and we frequently reminisce of those old games by playing most of the classics on our computers using emulators.
Well in an epic attempt to bring you guys back to that time period (with a modern twist) I’m in the process of creating “EPIC BATTLE GAME”.
It’s a 2.5D sidescroller/top-down/isometric styled game (it changes frequently). You’ll play through levels that closely resemble (due to copyright infringement I won’t be able to resemble exactly.) classic mario brothers/mario world levels, the classic top down zelda levels, pac man, tetris, sonic, etc. You’ll be battling all the classic baddies we’ve all come to love as you try and conquer the land of pixels.
The graphics will be very realistic looking 3d graphics, although when you start entering various “Worlds”, the graphics may decrease till the levels look like giant pixels (and the enemies are very pixelated looking, like classic 8 bit graphics blown up).
Now let’s get down to the actual development on it so far
Current state: Pre-Production
Character Concept art
15 environment objects
Basic Level Layout for the “Overworld”
Obviously I have a TON to do, and can’t show off a ton of screenshots and stuff yet… but Here’s a little teaser of the graphics style
I’ll be posting new progress periodically, I just wanted to startup a thread to get some criticism/inspiration/ideas.
Thanks for reading my (kinda?) long post
