how much of the artwork did you do youreself, cos i recon over half the production is provably just a load of traced bitmaps (photos pctures) with a few simple animated bits in photoshop, thats why it has a quality feel to it, but ether way theres a lot of time put in to it and i can see that you did create the main character, like the manga slyle. good work
I did just about all the artwork myself, except for a couple of sprites (more specifically, the smoke and dust sprites, which were imported from a game) and the 3D vehicles and weapons, which were rendered in Swift 3D (although I did add a lot of detail by hand once the models had been imported into Flash).
All the characters and some of the backgrounds were drawn on paper and then imported into Flash, where they were outlined, colored, and shaded. The rest of the backgrounds and other assorted art was drawn directly into Flash.
I did not use Photoshop very much; it was primarily used for the creation of the two blur effects I used in the animation (the focus shift when Sera spots the dead body, and the camera blur during the shot from the wounded soldier's POV).
The only traced bitmap in the movie was the sunset-colored sky used in the intro sequence.
that's a really fucking mad story..
that's pretty cool...
the only thing missing is blood squirting everyware.
you defenetly know youre flash,(did you learn at uni or something?), it must take ages to storyboard a game like this and fucking forever to do it and test it, it's kinda finalfantasy style, only it's totaly original from the characters to the scenary,i only know how to animate(moore or less) so i can't really appreciate the techincal side of it because i donn't know any stuff like that.. YET! but i'm sure youre flash movie is like a fucki'n matrix or something, good work! the only critisism i can say is that it would be good if the character could slide along the walls rather than stopping or getting stuk when you run in to something.
Thanks for the nice review. I finished this game nearly a year ago. I submitted it before but everyone voted low cuz of the size so not many people saw it. So I submitted again. It took me about a year of working on it after school and stuff. I go to art school. The programming is actually really shoddy cuz its my first game attempt. Looking back now I dont even know what a lot of the code I put in does cuz its so haphazardly done. Thats why its buggy in spots. Im actually not good at coding and looking for help to do the sequel cuz some of the stuff I wanna put in Im having trouble coding cuz its too adavanced for my feeble mind. I like drawing more than coding. And episode two is in the works just a lot more work is going into it than this one.
you know a lot about flash
TOTALY MAD!!! i like it.
you've taken drugs before haven you!!
