Working on a little horizontally side scrolling shooter about a war between colonies in outer space and the Earth. Watched Gundam a little too much as a kid, I think. As you can see in the pics, there are cities on the moon.
Resolution is set for 720P right now. THE SHIP IS NOT FINAL. That's the shape I want, but it's just a pencil sketch I scanned in and cut up. The ship will have more refined graphics... I promise.
Do a Barrel Roll, plus dramatic camera zoom & shield.
After posting it, it looks a little empty. It looks so much better in motion (there are explosions going off in the background). All the wings and pieces of the ship are individual and move according to the direction the player goes in. Explosions are hand animated the old fashioned way, all the graphics I drew up in photoshop, and haven't got around to finalizing the player's ship's graphics. Really though, the animation of the ship moving I'm really proud of.
Also, besides shooting, you can do barrel rolls, which is animated, and the camera will zoom in dynamically and stuff. All the other layers have different Zoom rates, so it's really dramatic.... and cool.
No enemies yet, but... they're coming. And battleships in the background too. I just hope I can program enemy movements.... which I suck at. >_< But yeah, almost all of the player craft movement and shooting is in there. I find myself working on the background and the ambiance more than the actual gameplay though. lol. haha.
