Nothing less than the Best
We've been working hard to polish Zarnok Fortress to make it the best game we can possibly make. Part of this polish has been programming, but a large part of it has been visual.
After getting a lot of requests to make the game more colorful, Will Vali (the game's artist) thought it would be fitting to make the protagonist more colorful too!
Robo's World: The Blulite Rocks had a very colorful world, but Robo himself was a simple plain grey, which is how he began in this game too. Eventually, Will pitched the idea of making Robo blue.
As much as I liked the concept image, I thought making him pure blue would be too much like Mega-man. "Well, adding more color will make him more memorable" Will said. "No doubt" I responded. "Of course, if we really wanted to make him memorable, we could make him yellow" (since according to color psychology, yellow is the most memorable color). "Actually, what if we kept the blue but gave him yellow accents?" I asked. "Let me try it out" Will responded.
The concept he sent back looked great, so we updated the character model in Spine and added it to the game. If we weren't using Spine, a change like this would have taken a LONG time.
