First of all you have to be part of the community and I don't mean sign up and then post in here I mean you need to have spent time getting to know the community and most people here can recognize you.
Secondly you have to have an original character for yourself, don't use pre-existing character from a popular series or simple edits of them as you won't be recognized as yourself in the game and you're more then likely a enemy in the game, however I am willing to make a exceptions but this will need to be discussed.
Don't expect your character/you to be where you wanted, I'm sure nobody would like to be rejected or put in a position they didn't want to be put in but I don't like telling people this so just prepare for the possibility of being rejected.
There's two ways of getting in.
The First way is by a playable character.
If you're going to do a player remember you have an interesting idea for how your character can work in game.
if you notice in the player roster you'll notice the characters behave differently from each other, you can't get in as a playable just because you re skinned idiot you've got to have something special to you, and think what are your characters abilities and downside to these abilities. (kiashi can fire bullets but has terrible traction for example)
here's some of the abilities already being used (this will be updated to so please check this every now and then) please note you are to avoid reusing most of these.
The second and easier way is by ally.
There's an Ally hidden in each level (there's currently 5 levels) and to become one is very simple, just have a character and a simple attack method to deal with enemies,
I currently need 2 more allies to complete the game, after the allies have been filled out I may be more lenient about who becomes a player.- Sprites -
Having sprites can really help with getting your character into the game,
The maximum size of everyone is 32x32 pixels for both Allies and Players however you are allowed to go out of this ratio as long as it's not as ridiculous as something as 128x128.
This is the least amount of sprites used for players, just remember to add any necessary sprites needed for your character and remember you are not limited to the amount of frames Idiot has.
This is used for the Hud and character select. there's also blinking frames so do with that what you will.
if you need a list of the sprites needed you can get one here
Code: Select all
- death animation
- victory pose
- victory outro 1 (the first time the player beats a level they get unexpectedly warped up into the sky)
- victory outro 2 (when beating the level every other time)
just fill in any other sprites needed for your character.
For allies it's there's a lot less needed, just create a standing, walking, jumping/falling, and whatever sprite is needed for their ability.Don't
just edit the idiot sheet I provided above, this was an example of what to do, however I will allow you to use it as a base just don't edit them. (don't idiot9.0.1) This goes for every other sheet you see in the thread.Don't
rush your guy, the development of this game will probably still be in development in 2015, there's no rush, take your time to really polish your character and get into the community.Don't
just assume you can get in if you've only been here a month or two. I'm sorry to say this but yes this is a popularity contest here. You have to be known and have a good reputation around here to join. if you notice most people in the game have been around for a while and have a decent amount of posts (and don't bullshit your way in, I know who you are.)
here is a link to posts of people who are currently in the game, learn from their post and try to follow what they've done. (not word by word)viewtopic.php?p=75215#p75215viewtopic.php?p=75810#p75810viewtopic.php?p=102768#p102768
(not currently in but I do plan on adding because they're a good member and I like the sprites)
Sprite quality matters too.
