Nearly there

Got animation of the main character in. As well as shooting birds and making them burst into feathers. Tomorrow: level creation and sound integration. FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU

Animation

Got a crude bird animation in. This is taking ages.
Workflow is: pivot stickman animator -> bmps -> irfanView -> transparent pngs -> pygame

Background...

...is now displayed. Collision geometry is loaded in from SVG file and converted into Box2D shapes.
Our character now has a world to collide with :)

Stuff onscreen!

Got pygame drawing the collision geometry from a test SVG file. Now need to get it to show the raster image behind the vectors.

The game

After a gruelling session of coffee and brainstorming (I'm still buzzing from the coffee) me and banni have a game design!

You play as Icarus, flying through a cavern (beneath Crete?). If you go too close to any heat sources you lose feathers. Fortunately there are caches of feathers around in the form of birds. Shoot a bird, blasting it into a cloud of feathers to replenish your wings. The more feathers you have the greater your lift. There will probably be pickups cunningly situated near flames - valuable but dangerous to get at. There will also be gusts of wind at certain key points in the levels. If you enter a section with wind blowing into it you'll have to collect all the feathers in that part of the level to have enough strength to get back out.

Pictures to come.
