Well, this'll be the first thread I've made in hack discussion, if I recall correctly.
So, thanks for clicking on this thread!
Anyway, on to the actual hack:
This is Shy Guy's Adventure. I do realize that another Shy Guy hack has sprung up and the thread is also in this forum, but this hack is completely unrelated, I'm not trying to rip it off, etc. I've actually been working on this for months, but I've been busy with school and such, so progress has been slow.
Anyway, screenshot time! Please take the time to admire the beautiful player graphics Construct101 created from a sprite sheet for me.
So here's the story I've got so far. I know it's not exactly the most original, but whatever.
This is pretty much the only decent submap I've ever made.
Talking to a fellow Shy Guy while we prepare to leave Subcon.
Showing the new Goomba graphics that I found here on the site, as well as Koyuki/KilloZapit's holding patch. Also, reghrhre's super sexy background (he forced me to say this!).
New dragon coin and mushroom, both of which Construct provided with the player GFX.
A dangerous dragon coin to get.
And if you fail, at least you'll get this awesome death pose to laugh at!
So that's what I've got so far. Let me warn you that I'm probably going to update infrequently due to school and other activities, but I'm going to try to get this done in a reasonable amount of time.
Anyway, I would appreciate any feedback on what I've shown so far!
This looks very cool. The graphics are awesome, but just one thing. Shouldn't the Shy Guy's arms be pointing up when he's holding an item?
Still, the level design looks fun and unique, and it looks like a very lively world. Can't wait to see more!
That OW is just plain dreamy. But it looks somehow familiar, IDK why.
I think the levels would look better with some custom palettes, but I guess they look fine without them.
Also, LOL at the death pose, very clever choice.
EDIT: Yes! I reached level 4!
So yeah, I'm not really going to be posting for a while. Not that anyone cares.
For instance, the part to the bottom left. If you can't see it, get a brain.
I can't see anything but a land mass rising in a very odd manor. It could be fixed, but there's essentially no problem there. Same with the mass up near the top right, the land is just higher there. Nothing wrong with that. (Even though it looks kinda drastic.)
The only true problem I've found is some cutoff, straight above the "3" sign. Near the tallest waterfall.
Just for the future, Blue_Raven, a drastic perspective error is when the grass doesn't match where it's ground meets the water / the grass below.
@first post: Very nice. Good little plot for the beginning, good graphics, and plus, a new player (strange, I haven't seen many Shyguy hacks yet).
The new OW...well (absolutely not insult to reghrhre), I think it's a bit too much. Yeah, it looks great and stuff, but honestly I liked your own submap better. Probably just my taste.
Anyways, the rest looks very nice. Keep it up, K3fka. ;)
Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'll fix up the cutoff and perspective issues on the OW.
Anyway, part of the second level:
What do you guys think of the palette?
Wow! That palatte looks GREAT! The Green gently fades out into the light brown of the dirt. The OW looks pretty great too, even though it was made by reghrhre. It's great to see a shy guy game that says something about the subcon. I hope the see more from the hack in the future!
