Two years. Good grief. I can't believe it's been that long. Doesn't feel like it. Wow, time sure flies. >_<

Hey, all. Just a quick update on the game I'm working on. I started drawing levels for it on November 2014, so today officially makes it two years that I've been working on this... which is nuts. I haven't worked this long on anything - ever. The really crazy part is that I'm still excited to work on it -- and I love that! Hey, if something motivates you, go for it!! :D

Game Character - Idle Animation by MichaelCrichlow

[above] The still unnamed protagonist. While the gameplay is pretty much finished for World One, proper animations still have to be made for this l'il guy. All in time. :)

I've been working on what I call my 'World One Build' for a while now. The idea is to make the game as polished as possible, basically make a shippable product -- that is one world long. What would that look like? What would it sound and feel like? Those are the questions I'm answering as I work on it.

Two years ago, I didn't know Game Maker Studio at all. Now I use it every day. Still much to learn, but I'm glad with the progress I've made.

A big part of my motivation is the support that I've gotten through Deviant Art. Thanks so much for being there for me and helping me through tough times. It really is appreciated! Much love!! :heart: :hug: :heart:

I'll let you all know when World One is ready. I think it's going to me awesome and I hope you like it as well. ^_^


Best of luck on all your projects! Much love! Take care and talk to you soon.

- Mike C

Just running through with another recommendation! :D Outland's free on Xbox, if you haven't played it. It's a platformer (side-scroller, of course) that I was surprised to find myself get lost in; I think you'd definitely love it. It's from 2011, so it's actually old, but it's my first time every hearing about it. It's got some awesome Maori/Aztec designs too, and some elements you could probably take for your game :thumbsup:

Hey, thanks for the recommendation! Much appreciated and I'm sure it'll help. :)

I actually remember hearing about Outland some time ago -- but I never really got that into it. Here's an excuse to give it another shot. ^__^

Thanks again! Hope you've been well! Take care and talk to you soon! :D

Hey there! Hope you've been well. :)

I've been working on a game for a little while now, so all my free time goes to that. I do draw, but it's level designs, item ideas, pixel art designs (some of which are in my gallery) and stuff like that. So, no pencil/pen illustrations at the moment (though I do feel the urge from time to time to draw random stuff). >_<

Unfortunately, I don't remember you. Please help me remember! How are you doing! Hope you've been well, mate. :)

Take care and talk to you soon. Cheers! :D

Rock on! I'll do my best to get my game to you once it's in a playable state. :)

Take care! Talk to you soon! :D
