Jenna on a Block by Dualmask Jenna on a Block by Dualmask
After much deliberation and encouragement from friends online and off, I've decided to get back into working on my Jet Dancer platformer game. I found that I had backup files from the game on my Google Drive, enabling me to retrieve and start working on my Construct 2 files after some clean-up work. I've been tweaking little things making sure the game feels right.

One of my biggest obstacles with making my own game is the graphics...I'm not great at making anything non-character based, but that's something I need to get over if I'm going to make even a half-decent looking game. Can't have the character running around on vague gray squares forever. But for some reason I have a mental block when it comes to creating environment and background graphics. It took me all yesterday and a lot of trial and error to produce these blocks my Jet sprite is standing on right now, but I'm posting this because I feel I finally came up with something that visually looks like it suits the art style I'm going for. Obviously I'm going to need a LOT more tiles and objects to make believable environments, and I may not even use this block in the final game, but it fits stylistically I think.

The blocks look good to me- the mechanical and geometrical look would be fine for a factory or warehouse scene. I think that the more of these you'll do, the more ones you'll be able to imagine and create (at least, that's my experience).

Thanks! I imagine I'm going to have more trouble when it comes to more naturalistic environments, one of which is part of my plans for a level, but I'm confident I can pull it off.

Thanks! I'm currently finalizing the player controls. I stomped out most of the glitches and it's high time I start creating more enemies and obstacles. I have a boss fight I want to put together and then I want to let other players test it so I can get some feedback.

Thanks! I'm happy I was actually able to make a non player object that looks good... Now to do it about a thousand more times.

Yeah, I had to stop denying what my heart was telling me. Comics and stories aren't my thing, not anymore. At least not now.
