Hey I'm still around and working (slowly) on the game. I took a little detour with the new 3D object and did some testing with 3D environments. I had trouble matching the 2D characters with the 3D backgrounds but I finally found a good style. Hopefully will be showing more of the game soon.
is it possible to trick you into making a little tutorial on bone movement for this style of game?
If you want to PM me with questions or post in the help section, I'll be glad to help. I still have to finish my Fighting Game tutorial before taking on anything else.
