Since we've redone the game in C#, we decided to redo some of the graphics to be more cute! Here are what the new sprites look like!

Posted by on

Intro
Hey guys! We're redoing a lot of our base graphics to fit in the new engine we've made! The new graphics use 8 directional movement and have a very cute style, check it out!


Roleplay Outfits

Male Walk

Male Idle

Female Walk

Female Idle



The Engine

Since we decided to rewrite the game a couple months ago, we've made astounding progress. Here are some notes about what we've done!
  1. Maps that take over 8 hours to walk across are only 55 MB
  2. 800-2000 players will be supported per world (more concrete numbers coming soon)
  3. Crafting is now in easy-to-use menus on the side of the game UI
  4. Boring, pointless stats have been removed and are now replaced with crafting tree progressions
  5. Linux and Mac builds will be easy to construct now!

I like how the female walk looks almost identical to the male one with only very subtle changes

Not a big fan of how the girls hands seem to be pushed out in a traditionally feminine pose. With such pixelated characters, why even bother differentiating? Why not just have them be generic and gender-less - let people impose their own gender on the default character?

Traditionally feminine pose? They look nearly identical, except the female looks like she has slightly pointy-er features, and breasts of course.

I personally don't mind it and I think the game is looking pretty neat. My only question is why would it matter for people to impose a gender on the character if they can simply choose a gender.

The walking animation evokes a slightly pointed upward feminine hand pose. This is a personal observation and opinion.

As for gender, there are a lot more genders than just male and female. For those people, they can't simply choose a gender that matches theirs if the only options are male and female.
