@firebrandboy:

the game is going to be primarily a two player game and you have to use each other's abilities to get through the level in the fastest time or most lives (several different game options)

like P1 would be able to chop down trees a, and P2 would be able to have the smarts to make something out of it.

it' pretty much always going to be cooperative.

@Battle Lava:

Yep, they're my inspiration ... i guess that means the picture is good too, right? big_smile

i'll take that as a compliment XD

at first, just flash, if it's really that good, then i'll go to probably xbl indie games or something like that

Looks interesting, apparently some people care big_smile

Also, interesting link Battle Lava. I always enjoy reading about game design ideologies.

Sounds like it could be cool.
I appreciate your exploration of a new(?) concept for 2-player co-op play, that's probably the 'funnest' type of game imho.

Re: the Superbrothers style...
I was just pondering, was there ever an actual 'vintage' game that had this graphical style?
It's sort of Pitfall-era, but with much higher resolution compared to the level of drawn detail.
Maybe it reminds me of '8-bit style' meets 'super-deformed / vinyl toy art style'.

Oh, and what are you doing for the music/sound?

Thanks fluidvolt and spriteful!

@spriteful:

I'm not really sure if THEY got the style from, or they just adapted the style themselves... but it sure is the right style for me.

I haven't really gotten that far, but if anyone is interested you can go ahead and shoot me a PM.

///more details about the music mood:

sort of upbeat, simple, and ambient

i'm pretty chill with anything you're willing to contribute! smile (you will be payed a portion, if we end up getting a sponsorship from like newgrounds, armorgames, whatever)

I dabble a little in game design, planning to take it at degree level this coming September.

The art style reminds me of Under The Garden, which is awesome and people should play it if they haven't

The poll is kinda hard without more context...
I figure the startup screen should lead in to the mood and graphical style of the rest of the game.

But on sheer gut reaction I guess I can vote 'Green'.
Green reminds me of Intellivision games, good times.

Oh, I guess I should've informed you guys a little bit more.

Pretty much, this is going to be the screen that shows up once the game finishes loading, nothing much.

Thanks for your vote spiteful!
