*Jumping Peppers!*

Was reading through Arne's artwork for a proposed Star Con Tactical Game, and decided to do some spriting, here are das results!




Any comments? Cheesy

Heh, not bad. Are those scratch or edited?

One thing though, I think Arne's idea was closer to the original SC - it was a 2D and stuff, but instead of controlling 1 ship at a time in arcade-style combat, you led a whole group of ships. While what you've got here seems more suited to an isometric game.

Still, that gives me an idea: It would be awesome to be able to walk around your ship as the Captain and talk to crew, manage non-combat stuff, etc.

(when I first saw this thread I thought it had something to do with me XD)

Maybe a precursor were just like "Hey I built this mushroom thing, it can traavel between plaaanets!" and the others were like "Yaaaay!" and then they all deliriously clapped their hands and giggled like little schoolgirls.

Thanks for the input! Most of them are from scratch, except the Orz Robot thing, which is an edit from something else (I couldn't draw the damn thing Sad).

These remind me of Ant attack, one of the first 3D games (isometric).

They also vaguely remind me of LaserSquad (XCOM/UFO forerunner). I suppose it would be possible to do a siege/boarding game in that style...


Yeah, my 'game' idea is more of a SC universe simulation (as far as it can be taken on a modern PC) than a whatever genre game. 2D topdown with realtime rotation.

You know, Star Control has always been about mixed genres. SC1, action and straegy. SC2, RPG and action.

I'd be completely down with mixing a sort of board like strategy element like Final Fantisy Tactics, PoxNora or Tactics Arena. I remember Waazal was a bit like that but I could never get into it. It's actually not quite like that. One day I gots to get back into programming.
