Super Retro Squad Kickstarter Campaign

Yes, we’re jumping on the Kickstarter bandwagon, and we’re announcing our first commercial game.

  1. Zyborg

    Zyborg Level 5: Spiny


    Hmm... maybe to introduce each character, there could be a fake title screen for each fictional game?

    I can imagine. Especially when I look at Erin.

    Agh I got doubled!
    So I guess that makes the drafty fanart I made second ?

    You know I actually have a base story plot for Mecha Boy, a story which I think it could surprisingly well working for the character for what he is and all. I can share if interested...

    Maybe the Unicorn could be SRS' equivalent of Sophia? Limiting it to certain levels or a temporary power-up could work with that.

    Yeah, Erin actually took the longest out of anyone.

    That drawing looks pretty awesome, nice job :)

    Probably wouldn't hurt to post this, here the nice quality version of the kickstarter image. :D

    I actually kind of needed that.

    I suggest that when the game SMBC is ported to Unity, you add skins for these guys. I and A&S have suggested this already.

    "Not terribly excited about how Erin looks, but pretty cool nonetheless"

    Yeah, I mean this as no insult to the graphics guys, but she looks a little weird to me. But I'll wait to see her full animation set.

    "Message: Same idea, separate time."

    Yeah you mentioned skins, but character unlocks would be epic I think. Either or I'll be fine with, we don't even know how they play yet :D

    Perhaps this will change your mind. erin.png

    I agree that the side view is not as good as this one. Zach was having a hard time with it.
  12. Ryuza

    Ryuza Level 6: Lakitu

    I made all the sprites for everyone, I think Erin turned out alright but it's hard to tell what she supposed to look like from her sprite. Jay's about to post an different pose for her and explain something.

    Edit: I have been ninja'd

    Anyway, here's a bigger one too:

    The armor she wears is supposed to resemble crystals, so that might help explain her design. Also, the blue parts between the armor are supposed to be energy that protects her body and lets her move more without the armor being in the way.

    Haha I didn't explain anything!

    Look. I know what the Mani Cousins' enemy should be called. Bowser's Japanese name, King Koopa (as well as the koopa troopas) come from the Korean meal, Kuppa. Other dishes he was going to name him after were Bibinba and Yukke. So, Bibinba or Yukke would be awesome names for him.
  15. uglyrodent

    uglyrodent Level 9: Spike Top

    Yeah, that front sprite makes it look heaps better. Also, I just realized she reminds me of this guy:
    And I never liked how he looked...but now that I know it was just residual distaste for Glide I can appreciate Erin more.

    There's no real point to this post...but I am definitely going to get the $80 prize by the end of the month.

    Omg Erin looks much cooler from that angle

    I like the idea of this crystal parasite armor

    I also like how she's a thief. Aran is the idol of brave heroism and Erin is the idol of dick-ass anti-heroism :D I wonder what the suit wants her to do

    Made an awesome banner type thing for my signature and the Kickstarter page!

    Btw Ryuza there are still some smileys with purple boxes around them (I noticed this when I posted Erin and Samus together)

    Those ones have boxes on purpose so people can easily reference the size of a character when considering a skin, although I probably should add one for that Samus pose that doesn't have the box.

    Merc Level 3: Paratroopa

    Yeah that is what I'm wondering at this point. Has there been any plans on how you guys are going to present the characters/story to us? I like the idea of fake title screens, maybe the "Press Start" screen can show up before you start the respective characters world (but only on your first play through)?

    Also will every character be unlocked from the start like SMBC or do you plan to have us beat their world before we can use them elsewhere?
