Topic: Speedy the RollerSkater (My Future Project)

This is my idea for a game with Open Surge.

Story: ???

(Feel free to add ideas for the story)

Characters:

Speedy: The main hero of the story. He's a human boy who can skate at huge speed.
Reiji: This little boy is Speedy's best friend. He can run faster. (Note: He is my main characters on other projects I'll do in the future. He will like Mickey Mouse starring some features)
???: A female one. Suggestions are open.
???: Suggestions are open.

I would like to add images but since I'm new here and I don't know how to do it, I'll wait to upload some for the future.

Re: Speedy the RollerSkater (My Future Project)

Sounds interesting so far.

To add images, you need to upload them to an image uploading site first, like Imgur. Then you can add the images in by clicking the image icon above the post you're writing (the blue icon with a picture of mountains). This will add code in the post saying "(img)(/img)". Then copy the image's link location (right-click image, click "Copy Link Location") in between the two pieces of code to make the image appear. You can test this by clicking "Preview reply" at the bottom.

If you have lots of images, you can add them one-by-one using this method, or just put a link to all of the images with the URL icon above the post (Earth with a link symbol); it works the same as the image feature, but instead turns the link from normal text to a working link.

Here's my drawing of Speedy, the main character: https://photos.app.goo.gl/2qIDxOpuS4l4YyD12

I hope the link works.

Yes, it works just fine.

The character looks to have potential. You'll need to make a spritesheet for the in-game character for all of his animations and such. Everything you need to know about spritesheets and .spr files, which provide the sprite's properties, is here: http://opensnc.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Sprites

Well, I have a little problem... I'm not good making sprites sad

What can I do?

Re: Speedy the RollerSkater (My Future Project)

I'm sure there are tutorials out there for making sprites. A good tool to make sprites with is Paint.

Other than that, you could get someone to make them for you, but I don't know who could do that or if they'd want money for it or not. All the work I've done with sprites is just scaling down images found on the Internet and putting them on spritesheets, not actual pixel art.

So, the best option is to learn how to do it yourself. It takes a lot of time, but that's how it is with any project or game.

If you are doing it yourself, remember that the character sprites have to be very small, about 30x42 pixels per frame. Because of this, they don't have to be, and they won't be, super detailed.

Good luck. wink

Here's a sprite of Speedy standing. I used the Surge sprite as a base and some help. Hopefully it went well.

Re: Speedy the RollerSkater (My Future Project)

Not bad, I like the style of it. smile

Here's some progress on Speedy's sprites: Standing and running.

Next animations are:

1) Roll Jumping
2) Skating
3) Swimming
etc.

Anyway, if someone has good ideas for the story, please let me know.

Re: Speedy the RollerSkater (My Future Project)

Looking good. You may want to make a running sprite to signify the character's top speed; and since the character's description is that he can skate at huge speed, it would make sense to have him skating in the running sprite.
