Curse of The Mystics [PROGRESS THREAD]

Post by delta » Sat May 23, 2009 6:21 pm

okies, i thought i'd create a new thread for updating y'all about CoTM.

two screenshots of the first level (The Chapel) are below. Bear in mind that i haven't yet coloured in the wording, and the character tile will change too. I may also colour the scroll edges. Detail too, is rather sparse atm...

As usual Jamie no technical input whatsoever but it looks good - nice colouring and scroll text really looking forward to its completion - maybe one technical thing but have you put a hud on it yet [he he he] :v2_dizzy_clapping:
Hard work has a future payoff. Lazyness pays off NOW.

this is the story:

Lost Legends
==========
A long time ago, countless years in the past, evil and oppression were the watchwords of the land. Common people were suppressed, beaten and tortured. The land itself had a dark dank air of fear and terror, and an oppressive, twisted, and paranoid leader ruled with an iron fist...

Chapter 2: Curse of the Mystics
========================
13 years have passed since the rise of The Lord of Darkness, and the Lord has long since receded into himself, growing ever more bitter and twisted with every passing year. The Castle of Illumination has long since lost its shine and sparkle, instead becoming a monstrous forboding presence, towering over the land and keeping the common subjects constantly fearful of their lives.

The Lord himself is bordering on the edge of madness, now almost obsessive in his belief that someone will plot against him as he did against the king before him. Rumours have reached him that the son of the long dead king is planning a coup, and in his madness, the Lord has turned to mystics and sorcerers to guide him and help remove the threat to his rule...

Aha!!! I'm rally glad you decided to continue the Dizzy Legends series. I think everyone is expecting it like the second part of "Lord of the ring" :)

The screens look great. Nice colors. Perhaps more contrast is needed (color or style) between the bricks in the scene and those of the hud. Especially in the first shot.

Good luck with it and keep us informed!

Thank you!

i'm not re-drawing the HUD, it took ages! :) I think there's a good enough contrast in the colours anyway. Plus the second (and possibly third) levels will look completely different too.

oh and i have *no idea* what the second part of 'Lord of the Rings' is like...

Haven't you seen the whole trilogy? It's really good. The best I dare to say :)
I also read the book (in fact I listened to the audiobook) and both the book and the movie are very good. I strongly recommend them.
