Happy people like the graphics, thanks everyone! I was taking snapshots while drawing one of those backgrounds to see how much time it actually takes me, so here's a bit of making-of:
This is so beautiful, you can really see the effort that went into it!

Quite agree!  (nod) Lovely. I always love to see these "making of"...

Just one remark... you forgot to post the time...  (laugh) So... how much elapsed time does that gif cover?

27 hours since I started counting, so about 30 total I'm guessing, + smoking breaks and pointless wall-gazing... yep, I'm slow :).

Thanks for posting that gif.  It's very insightful to see the process and the time estimate.

With all of the details in the image, I'm not surprised it took that long.  It looks fantastic.  I'm guessing it will be quite a while before this game is released, but it seems like it will be worth the wait.

This looks awesome Honza. The backgounds really remind me of "A whispered world", wich is my favorite adventure :) but the troll is really one of a kind, love him.

The graphics and animations are wonderful. I can't WAIT for this one to come out. The story will be fascinating.
If it’s not broken, let’s fix it till it is...!

  • don't go out!!!
Duuuude, you're very talented! that graphics are lovely, and the plot looks pretty interesting so far!
As a infrequent animator (just for hobby), I really like those animations, they are very careful. Can wait to see more!

I just realized I haven't made any updates in almost a year, so just to bump this a little bit and show that this project is still alive (and to celebrate finally breaking a long procrastination period), here's Mirabelle walking:



Some bigger news and updates hopefully coming soon-ish (but no deadlines or promises, apparently I'm not good with those ;)).

Looks great, just like all of your animations and graphics! I'm glad the game is back on track.


Looking good, Honza! Love the attention to detail - every art piece you post looks so polished!

Also, is it just me or do you really like drawing naked people partially hidden behind objects? 🤔

Hey Patrice, thanks! And yeah, I kinda recycled that gag in Off The Clock. But twice is enough, promise to not use it again any time soon :).

This looks so good, even though I fear for any artist who puts this much time into a project! Superb detail in everything, love it.

I just realized that I haven't posted in this thread yet! This looks really nice. Your art skills are superb and the animations look fantastic. The premise sounds fun too  :)

Good luck with the development! I'll try out Off the Clock soon(ish).

That's a well founded fear :/. Some time ago I was catching up on your and Grundislav's podcast, and the part about people who get too ambitious with their first project, quickly burn out and never finish was scary. Well, at least I've got the jam games now, we'll see what happens with this one. Not giving up on it just yet, but might take a detour to something much smaller first.

Good luck with the development! I'll try out Off the Clock soon(ish).

Thanks, let me know what you think when you've had the chance to check out OTC!
