ASEprite, 1 Layer, 18 Colors
If you've been watching me for a while, you'll notice a long time ago I made a sprite sheet for a friend,
of his oc, The K, in the style of Cave Story. In case you didn't take that big hint, I've always been a big fan of Cave Story and it's amazing music, graphics and above all, storyline. The sad thing is that this fantastic game has never gotten a sequel despite having such an amazing storyline and easy-to-expand gameplay system (i.e. different maps, more weapons, etc.)...
One day, I got an idea for a Cave Story sequel called "Mountain Story". In it, a lone, unnamed mimiga would live in Ruin Mountain. After training, the mimiga would set out into the world to try and find survivors in the face of a horrible world-destorying incident. Along the way, the mimiga would team up with a Miruka named Buke and they would find out how to use a mysterious flying device that fell out of the sky, along the way combatting a great evil called the Red Demon.
The gameplay would compose of the mimiga travelling a large, flat overworld with many areas and a town or two in it. There's a multi-dimensional system, and portals can be found scattered everywhere between the two. Your primary weapons involve physical attacks using weapons like claws, gloves or gauntlets. There would also be some upgrades for tools like the Vertical Shot or Feather Staff. I've already designed out most of the game in Notepad++, so I'm pondering whether I wanna go forward and make more things related to this game.
