Nothing about it looks like Earth 2 to me. The vehicles are similar, but not quite right. And I don't remember anyone in Earth 2 wearing shorts. And looking deeper, I think the vehicles aren't military enough to be Terra Nova.
I'm now thinking it might be Lost in Space.

Terra Nova?

The name Ebeneezer Grinch makes me want to see a Dr. Seuss version of The Christmas Carol. Will there at least be Dr. Seuss style rhyming?

As for my game, I have a base gui made and base programming for the buttons on it. Next step is making some elves.

Poultrygeist? Huh, Ron Jeremy actually is in that movie. If it's right, the credit should go to dayowlron.

I've given enough thought that I can safely say I will be trying to make an elf based game inspired by games like The Lost Vikings, Gobliins, and Puzzle Bots.

As many submissions as there are, I've decided I'm not going to try to rush an inferior product.
Good luck to all, I look forward to playing your games.

I'll try to have something up in 10-13 hrs.

Good. Now I don't have to limit myself to the whack-a-crow game and the Dough War can commence. King Kleaver thanks you.

Thanks, but I'm not sure anyone could help me too much at this point. I'll just have to see what I can get done by whatever deadline is final.

I second the extension. It would give me time to actually make something playable. Tomorrow's deadline would mean only one location and possibly a whack a mole type mini game. Having the weekend to work would mean being able to have actual dialog and a conflict to resolve.

Of all the slasher movies based on holidays, Black Friday is one of the last I would have expected. Unless it involved mauling at a mall...

There's a 50/50 chance of if I actually get anything finished before the deadline.

Indeed. But luckily I already have most of the needed sprites already done or mostly done. And I'm going to use a made up location/ideas that didn't quite fit for the Last Magic of Oz. It's based on when you mentioned Time Management.


Why don't you do just take one section from one book and convert that into a game?
Several reasons really. One us that too many problems are fixed too quickly or by accident. I think it's better just to make my own story with my own selection of characters and locations from the books.

Hmm. Something suddenly makes me want to guess that it's Dexter.

I've come to the realization that The Last Magic of Oz is too ambitious for this month. So instead I'm going to do a different story. I'm not sure the name yet, but it will have the Scarecrow, Scraps, Tik-Tok, and the Saw-Horse as the main characters and Jack Pumpkinhead in some capacity.

And to think, I thought the screenshot looked a little like Bruce Willis. Maybe people see who they want to see...

I'd try giving some kind of inspiration or ideas or something, but my motivation and creativity kind of ran out on Wednesday. I've only poked at things a bit since then. But I did find someone reading some of the Oz books on Youtube, so I'm hoping listening to them while working on graphics will help...

Turbo Kid?

I'm now confused. Jonathan Crane should already have a brain. He already has a doctorate before turning into the Scarecrow. And will Batman show up? And why is Dr. Jonathan Crane talking to the Queen of Hearts in Oz? This is a crossover of Batman, The Wizard of Oz movie, and Alice in Wonderland? I'm so very confused by the art. lol

Looks interesting. Congratulations on the completion. I'm still a long ways from finishing mine.

Beginners' Technical Questions / Re: Resolution
« on: 12 Nov 2018, 18:48 »
Resolution is mostly decided by the type of graphics. A lot of people prefer to do lower resolution graphics, thus using a lower resolution for the game. So it's impossible to recommend a resolution really. I personally tend to prefer wide screen resolutions. 426x240, 480×360, 640×480, or 1280x720 usually. It just depends on the game.
And you didn't provide enough info for the second part. How large of a background are you using compared to size of your monitor?
