Save the Pink Elephant
I like to draw but going with blocky 3D saved a lot of time and worked out nicely this time. The game is simple and unpolished but I find some moments lovely (for example if you're running very fast and a cannibal lassoes you they can end up being dragged through the air) and it's a game insofar that you can win and lose and the outcome is correlated with your cunning. I haven't had time for pits, rocks, rivers, lions, jumping cannibals and pickups dropping from huts but the basic idea is still expressed.
I won't tinker with the gameplay but I'll upload another version tomorrow that has sound. We have some music composed but unrecorded and I love making goofy sound effects so we're going to allow ourselves this little slip. For stricter or more eager judges the silent version is already up! Enjoy!
Day 5 = day 1
Now that we have this beautiful concept art all that's left is cutting it into pieces and pasting it on a computer screen! I have already composed a "doom-doom-boom" soundtrack using only three keys of the piano so the audio department is also covered.
