Looks awesome.  Any chance of a sequel to Kathy Rain?

New background:
Not 100% done - the signs are basically placeholders, and some linework is a little rough - but you get the idea.


Very fine... 8-)

That hanger(?) background is giving me a real Studio Ghibli vibe, great work Andail.

Backgrounds look awesome! As well as the heroine, but I must say I liked the first version more. She was cuter in my eyes. :)

Love the visuals, and it's fun to see character with an asymmetric style. 8-)

Indeed, this is going to be a nightmare to animate - doing all animations twice...

Twice is a bit of an exaggeration, frames just can't be flipped horizontally without tweaking the head :) Kathy Rain was a bit more difficult, since the asymmetry for her was prevalent over the entire sprite, not just the head. It still wasn't as much work as you'd think though, as many animations were drawn for a single direction anyway.

With that being said, since we are in somewhat uncharted waters with the bump to 640x360, we ARE looking for an additional animator to help alleviate the workload!

graphics remind me orion conspirancy, but i'm shocked about the details of your characters! Nice nice nice work!
If you don't get bored, it should work maybe.
