This week's topic for Illustration Friday is "Jump". For this topic I've decided to show you all something I've been working on. For a promotional tool later down the rock I've been working on a PEST CONTROL video game. I've been using the free opensource game called "SuperTux". What I've done is replace the images in the game with my own images, thus creating my own game. I also replaced the sound effects. I'm not a programmer, so I couldn't change the way the game works, so just the physical appearance is different. Right now I've only had time to change all of the characters in the game and a couple other elements, like the power-up boxes, crates, and stuff like that. I haven't been able to change the landscape yet, so it's still in an ice world.
Above are the 3 "stages" of Trigger: small, big with no powers, and powered up version where he can throw gears. This is his JUMP, hence the IF topic.
I've put together some screen grabs to show you a bit of the game and monsters that I've put in. Don't worry, some of the images contain jumping, so it's totally legit. Click on the images for a larger view. Enjoy.
