So the pixels sheets have been moving along nicely. Gonna try for some backgrounds next; then possibly some GIFs. My good friend Gil has posted a cool GIF of the S.C.I.M.I.T.A.R. trooper on his blogger (link on the right of post / check it out!).
Here are 3 current pixels sheets of one of the main characters: PVT OATS
These are pixels made on excel and converted to PDF then JPEG; so that I can post them. I would love to find an easy program were I can make my own game or app. Or perhaps find a group that can help me accomplish this (hint, hint...anyone out there live in the Bay Area CA?)
The 3 TOW characters and GO! Games Lab universe are my and Gil's creation; however I was heavily influenced by pixels in an app I recently played called TOWER OF FORTUNE, and also Megaman.
The game that I am thinking of would play like a cross between Metal Slug and River City Ransom. Up to 4 players would play co-op in bringing down the evil S.C.I.M.I.T.A.R. organization!
Here are the 4 main playable characters with their first sheet of pixels. I will post more as I make them :-)
*Update: Pixels have been updated (I keep finding little mistakes) and darker skin tone for Oats :-)
I've been toying with the idea of making a table top war game with the 3 T.O.W. minis, and I designed some custom dice for the codex I am putting together. Below are some images of the dice faces that I am going to have custom made :-)
Each soldier (Oats, Casey, Lars, Rusty) will have there own dice. There image will be on all 6 sides with different values. These 6 sided dice can also be used as a d6, d3, and d2.
