    Welcome, one and all, to Team Beach party's entry to the resurrection jam!



    [​IMG] Story:



     



    [​IMG]


    Far, far away, there was a kingdom ruled by a kind and loving king and queen. Alongside them, the noble prince oversaw the land, making sure no harm or evil ever came about.



    [​IMG]


    But one day, the fearsome gummy dragon, Gumdrap, swooped down and snatched the poor prince away. All the king and queen could do was watch in horror as their noble prince was being taken high atop the fabled Cookie Mountain, an active Caramel Volcano.


     


     


    [​IMG]


    So, the king and queen called upon Nora the Strong, and her Brother Angelo the Fire Mage, to rescue their beloved son.


    And so, our dynamic duo set off for the prince...



    ... on their Cookie Mountain Quest! 


    Cookie Mountain is a tale of how brother and sister team up and brave the land to rescue the prince of the land.


     This game features:


     


    [​IMG] Five colorful and immersive action-packed levels!


    [​IMG] Heart-pounding encounter with a giant dragon!


    [​IMG] FULLY custom soundtrack with SEVENTEEN different tracks!


    [​IMG] Fully custom artwork


    [​IMG] Special bonus content!



    Caution: This game contains sudden loud noises and flashes. Small children, those easily frightened by loud noises, or are aggravated by flashes of light should take caution when playing.


     


    NOTE: This game contains checkpoints where you are healed. in case you forget to save out on the field.



    This game pays homage to some of our favorite games. See if you can figure out what they are. Some of them will be quite obvious. ;)

    Here's a quick peak at one of the protagonists!

    Her name is Nora, and she's super strong. Maybe even... the strongest.

    Good luck!


    Reminds me a bit of Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdo, although maybe not quite as healthy.

    Real nice contrast between the world map and the forest. I approve!

    awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Mario theme style maps!!!

    hmm... this audio has no counterpoints (call and response) in it, which I find to be indicative of you music style. but it is nice, I could see going through a platformer with it in the background, while I smash evil gingerbread men like those in the newest Krampus film :)


    although I think the bass and whatever is doing arpeggiated chords is somehow dancing with another. much likes

    I enjoyed the peek at the music and screenshots, but I'm wondering what's going on with the 8-bit overworld vs.16-bit forest. The music seems to veer between those two reference points as well. Is this style discrepancy a deliberate choice, or just a passing development phase as you hash out a more consistent aesthetic?

    It's a deliberate choice. :) Just thought it'd be a fun thing to pay tribute to both styles, both of which had a HUUUUGE influence on both @The Mighty Palm and myself. .  There are even seques from 8 bit style music to the normal music as you enter each level/stage!

    I see. I find either style pleasant on its own, but switching between them strikes me as jarring, unless there's some sort of in-universe justification. (For instance, I've seen wildly different styles in the same work because the work's setting explicitly involves two different online games plus a few rare real-life scenes. In that context, it totally worked.)

      The style is, unfortunately, a love-or-hate kinda thing, I'm afraid. I respect that though,  thanks for your input. :D


    EDIT: @McKathlin Actually... there is a very good reason the OW appears as an 8Bit... but I can't reveal why for spoiler reasons. :)

    I do not know if the changing styles have some kind of storyline explanation or if it is for purely for aesthetic purposes but I really like it. But overall things like that is one of my own main tools when making a game (all of them got lots of art shifts) so maybe I am just easily impressed like that.

    Even though Team Beach Party are silent, we are working hard on the project every day!  Nothing really groundbreaking to show for at this time, but tilesets, sprites, and battlers are being forged from the very dusty ground we all walk on.   Maps are being created, music shaped. 
    Graphics being spun.   We have to keep SOME stuff a secret...!

    nice i really like the style, can't wait to see more. I don't mind the shifting graphical changes in maps, its when it gets incosistant, like u use MANY different styles at once. But what u done so far its very appealing to me, and i didn't like mario at all :p. So I can't wait to see what u come up with next.
