As I said, I wouldn't hold my breath for a Chrimbo demo. School completely took over shortly after my previous post, and then after school I spent Christmas with my GF in England, so Shift sort of took a back seat to everything. However I don't think it will be too long before I have a proper demo ready now, as you can see I did manage to get several more things done before school took over my life.
Enemy/Ring/Item placement GGZ
Level Title Cards
I also made a huge framerate improvement in the game shortly after my last post as I tweaked a number of graphics settings on Sonic's rendering so the game runs much smoother now.
I'm currently working now on Crabmeat's code, and have two other badniks to create for the demo level. Buzzer will not be making an appearance, I've created a new Bee badnik concept for the game, but I'm a big fan of Crabmeat so I just really had to create him for the game.
He's not perfect, and I know that teeechnically his walking animation wouldn't actually work, but it looks good for what it is and every other animation I tried to make for it failed miserably.
Also, I'm looking for a musically inclined hand with Shift. I can draw, I can model, animate, program, design levels, and give Crabmeat googly eyes, but I can't create music to save my life.
Now I'm not begging for free music or anything like that, I can pay a little (but I'm a poor college student, don't expect a new car outta me. XD) If you want to work for free be my guest, but I'm not begging you to. You will be given credit and access to content before I post it here to help compose the tracks. I want someone capable of doing original work, but willing to do some remix-ing too, and able to pull off a Sonicy style. If you think you're qualified hit me up with a PM with some examples of your work and an idea of what sort of payment you'd want in exchange.
This offer here is on top of an extensive search I've been doing since my original artist choice unfortunately disappeared from the internet.
I'll update this topic/post when I find someone for the position and follow up on Crabmeat and the other badniks.
