(probably the first and last time I'll use the vanilla terms to refer on my own hack)

Contents:

Information and Screenshots:

Welcome to Vanilla Cake's thread! Here you'll find some stuff about the hack. We've revealed this last Summer C3 2014, for those who didn't know, and this will serve as the hack's main thread.

This is also the first time I made a hack without using any custom resources. And also my first time doing a full hack with someone.

Screenshots:

(I reused the ones that were on the C3 thread, since we currently don't have any new content to show, aside from palettes)


Palettes List:

I'm also planning to release the palettes that we'll make after full version has been released, if people find it useful. This is just kind of like our quicklist.
  • Red Velvet (done)
  • Mint Chocolate Chip (WIP)
  • Strawberry (done)
  • Chocolate (done)
Also we no longer take orders.

  1. Summer C3 2014 Thread
Ooh! I saw this at C3 and it's looking as nice as it was before. Very nice use of the vanilla graphics, and great custom palettes! In particular, I like the level you've shown that uses the Forest of Illusion trees. I think the volcano lotus looks a bit odd in the screenshots with the Super Koopas, but nobody probably cares. Nor do I really :p

Anyway, nice job, and I'm looking forward to more of this. :3
Looks very nice and well-designed! It's not everyday that we see a hack that grants different flavors in each level; playing it was a fun experience. The palettes aren't bad either, both of you definitely know what to do to make them be more lively and fitting to each theme of the levels. Found no issues throughout it.

I'll be waiting for more progress from this! :3
I like what I'm seeing so far, but I don't really like the Mint Chocolate Chip palette, it feels off.
The palettes are great, the level design seems excellent. I agree with Macky though; I feel the mint chocolate chip palette is out-of-place.

I really like your palettes in this hack. It's going to be a nice vanilla hack, can't wait for more progress.



A vanilla hack with different tastes! Sorry, I couldn't help myself, but this looks like a solid hack from the screenshots.

My favorite palette is the Mint-Chocolate Chip. Don't listen to the haters. Also, that Red Velvet palette is almost equally as good!





The cave submap which comes after the grassland one. Subject to change, there are some shapes of it I may consider changing later for small redesigns if I get better ideas for it. I'm probably going to change the palettes as well to something better, if I can.

Flapping fuck this looks so nice. I don't know why I can't make overworlds like this unless I'm feeling creative. Beautiful.. ..just beatiful.
This does look very nice, but not trying to be offensive, but it kinda just seems like any ordinary vanilla hack. But hey... it looks ok...#tb{¬_¬}

While I like the palettes of that submap, it got me confused for a mountain world for a sec there because the colors are rather vibrant for a cave world. A darker brown would do. And I wouldn't mind seeing the palette currently used now be used for another world theme though. In fact, I encourage it to be reused.

On Pixel Art Requests: I generally do not accept free work unless I either have the time, if I see your project worth my time to contribute towards, and that is usually me doing the approaching to you on that second part. I do not accept speculative work as I do have various art I made on-hand with me. I am more receptive to paid work and equivalent exchange of resources (trades) in which case, you can DM me wherever I have an active presence on for the details and we can work something out. If not, then don't DM unless absolutely necessary.

It's supposed to be Vanilla.

I think you took his point in the wrong way.
It's supposed to be ordinary.

Anyway, made the first post prettier~

And also I want to keep this alive, but sadly no new content. Currently our motivation can be found somewhere faraway. But it's slowly returning back (for my case). Slowly...
But we got some palettes so I guess that's something?


Strawberry!


Chocolate!
Both were made by Mirann.

Also will it be useful to others if we release this set of palettes on public? Just curious.
Mmm, tasty palettes. They are lovely.

Why not, I think some people may use a set of custom palettes.
While I really like both of these palettes, I think the darkest dirt color is not dark enough. It's really hard to see that it's darker than the rest of the dirt (at least for me #ab{>_>})

ffffffffff wormer ninji'd me
This looks very good. Keep up the good work

Um, what? Correct me if I'm taking your post the wrong way, but are you trying to imply that people can't offer their criticism/opinions without being considered "haters"?

Anyways, back on topic, I have to say that I'm really liking these screenshots. Interesting and clever level design, and the overworlds look really nice as well! The palettes are especially nice, and make the levels look very bright and colourful and interesting. Definitely looks worth a play once it's finished.

11 days later. Hi!

Both of the palettes seem to be pretty good to me though my eyes are more focused on the strawberry palette (one of the best palettes I have seen in some time).

As for releasing it, I personally would not do that as each palette has a bit of originality to it (and I could pretty easily recreate the palettes using the screenshots anyway if I wanted to duplicate them).
