The game is going well. I seem to just continuously add more stuff and want more characters. I have enlisted some help from my friend David Beyer to put his character red bean in the game and I also asked my sister and brother in law to draw up some characters, oh yeah and I am also putting in a character drawn by a 9 year old kid. I keep growing the idea probably because it wasn't really well thought out in the first place. I honestly didn't think I would be able to pull as much off as I have. Thank the Lord. It has been tough scripting a whole game having never scripted before but I sure am learning lots and lots. Well , this was just an update. I welcome all comments and or suggestions on where I should be heading with this considering I am sorta just making it up as I go along.this is just some of the characters I put in the game so far. I am gonna really try and get a video capture soon. so you all can see how it plays. if you want to see screen shots look down a couple a posts.

I love it. The thing I really like is that it is more gratifying than just scripting something from scratch because you are working with an engine with some pre defined functions that are common in lots of games. You have to check it out, I couldn't explain if I tried. I am still having some minor issues with scripting my “if” statements but I am still interested and better yet determined to finish this game. The forums are real good for questions with a good search function. My absolute favorite is that the engine is for old sierra and lucasarts games, these point and click adventures. I loved these as a kid and played them for hours. Sam and max, search for the king etc.... this is just another outlet for me to proclaim that 2d is not dead and we will never let it die. I recommend you check it out. If there are any artists out there that are interested in making a game in the future with a focus on awesome 2d art with a 40's-50's cartoon feel let me know. I am really just doing this as a project to realize the scope and work involved in making a game. But I have a feeling that if some of us 2d cartoon lovers put our skulls together we could come up with a real nice game that says 2d still gots it!
I actually based the entire game off this picture I made. I thought she was cute and simple
one of my main artistic focuses was the backgrounds. I wanted that old school cartoon chalky, painted look. I will say old yogi bear was my greatest infulance.
I liked the reflection on the water
this was my first dialog test.
I couldn't post this without giving props to alien hominid a game where 2d prevailed in a world of 3d graphics. this game was a real inspiration and hilarious to play.
I would apreciate all comments and suggestions for game. so don't hesitate to let me know what ya' think.

my friend Jen Blando took this in high school I made the above on a snow day from school
this is a classic sock puppet that I made with film canister cap eyes
this one is made from the film canisters. and I rigged a zip tie to open the duct tape hinge. this guy was my favorite I used to take him in my pocket.
this one isn't a puppet. but it is a plush I sewed for my buddy David beyer jr. from his comic the twisted adventures of stinko. it was fun to make. his name is red bean. check him out on myspace( http://www.myspace.com/beyerbewareproductions)
well if I find more puppets I did I will post em'.
