Author Topic: Sarimento on Hyperborean Island--Need Spriter & BG Artist  (Read 1072 times)

[Update Jan. 18th, 2018] I'm gonna take this recruiting one step at a time, so I'll start with gathering a spriter and background artist.

Would anyone want to join my next project?

I'm planning another "gift game" (i.e. game intended to be for, and about, a friend--similar to Nelly Cootalot, but at the same time different)

Sarimento on Hyperborean Island

The hero, Sarimento, had arrived on this wintry island after his airplane crash-landed.  He hears that a warlord and sorcerer duo is causing trouble for the people.


It would be great if Ben304 could be part of it, but that's a big if, since I know he's kinda busy with his own games himself.  So, if he can't join, anyone that can draw characters in the style of a 1980's to early 1990's Saturday Morning Cartoon.

Perhaps one or two spriters (for characters and inventory items--including the "special inventory"), and maybe one or two artists for the rooms (I'll provide the maps as reference to which door/road/whatever goes where).

Background Artist

As with the Spriting, I might need one or two background artists that can draw the rooms and such in the style of a 1980's to early 1990's Saturday Morning Cartoon.

Sketches I have provided.

So, if any are interested, please send me a PM and we'll talk more there.  Let's get something happenin' here!

(If I don't get a team assembled by July 2016, I may have to do this solo.  But it would be a better idea to have a team help out.)

[Update] I had to make some changes since the original Kyrandia-style idea wasn't going as planned.  Mainly changed up the Verb Coin a bit and do an inventory opened and shut by right click.
