That BG is quite gorgeous!!!

I would love to play a game in that style!

I hope the waterfall is animated at some point, even if it's not possible for the MAGS release.

like a patched up Hot air balloon...

Must include a Giant banana check, it's a boat. navigated by 3 monkeys

so it can be anywhere in time and space...

Thanks Arj0n. Looks like fun.
Are we expecting anything else? Radiant? Blane?
Y'all have until midnight (BST) on August 31st (about 2-and-a-half days) to stop Arj0n winning by dirty default (wrong)

Blane & Radiant, need some competition here. Winning by default ain't fun. (wrong)

It's BRANE,

and it's gonna be a close call! I'm working on it though and if we don't manage to get it in time we certainly will in the next few days. Maybe there will be surprise entry too from someone else, who knows.

I'm very much planning to have a game done. Things happened this last week to keep me from working on it. I'll probably have to make it first person and have some descriptions in place of visuals to make it happen in time.

I don't have any screenshots to share, but I do have DOTT style image of the game's antagonist, Dr. Muttonchop.

Sorry, Brian. Nice to see you're still on the case.
And VW, that sprite looks good too. Keep it up :-)

I have a feeling you are kidding me.

The game is in the testing phase. We will release it tomorrow!

I have proof I actually have worked on my game and still plan to have it finished sometime today.

The most finished background:
Spoiler: ShowHide


The requisite monkeys (drawn by a friend, but resized and colored by me) and giant banana.

I present to you my second game ever and my friend's first! It's called Rango (for now, at least)

It's everything you would expect from a game that has to have a giant banana, poor means of transport (well, it's rather awesome in my case but "poor" is hard to define) and a monkey.

You control Rango, a little monkey who is just getting to know the real jungle.

Download the game here and have fun. I know my friend and I did:

Lovely little game, xBRANEx.

It's somehow impossible for me to
Spoiler: ShowHide

throw the rock to the other side.
Not sure if I have to aim for the pile of rocks or the tree.

Also: after I click the button, the sliders still move a tiny bit.
Not sure yet if that effects the toss or if it's just me sucking at such 'puzzles'.

So I gave up after 20 attempts.

arj0n, xBRANEx, and Stupot+ : Thanks for the compliments.

Radiant: Interesting screenshot. For some reason it made me think of Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire.

xBRANEx: Nice screenshot for your game. But the bloody knife kind of troubles me. I'm now expecting the game to involve Rango slaughtering his way out of the jungle and escaping inside a giant banana...

And now back to my own game. I've figured out the hardest parts and should be able to have a usable version in a couple of hours.
