    [SIZE=12pt]As the summer is coming to an end, Slimer and his tribe are finishing up the last of the pumpkin gathering to tide them over through the winter. When Perago and his lazy band of birds raid the pumpkin stash, the Slime Tribe is left with very little to see them through the cold months. Slimer sets out to restore the Slimes’ stock of food, helping friends along the way.*[/SIZE]

    *The story is completely and 100% subject to change at my whim.

    [SIZE=12pt]Slimer is an action platform game reminiscent of the original Frogger games, but with new style! You will use a platform jumping action to cross the rivers in an effort to gather as many pumpkins as you can while avoiding enemies. Pumpkins can be traded for Power Ups and Bonuses. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Along the way don’t forget to help out your friends. As you help friends out of tough situations, they will become a playable character. Each new slime will have a different ability to help you gather as many pumpkins as you can. You can choose which slime to play as, depending on the needs of the level.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Play special bonus levels to earn more pumpkins![/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [​IMG]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]*Specific unique character abilities have not yet been decided, though I have many ideas. What I’ve written here are some suggestions.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][​IMG][/SIZE][SIZE=12pt]              [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]   Slimer [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Our main character! Slimer is a champ as he travels through his land to gather pumpkins for his tribe, helping his friends out along the way.[/SIZE]

    [​IMG]

    [SIZE=12pt]   Sunny [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]A veritable ray of sunshine, this shy little slime is always around to help a friend in need. Possible special power – Sunburst, a short burst that gathers all pumpkins within a certain range.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][​IMG][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]    Rubie[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Rubie looks sweet, but can be quite sassy when she wants! Nevertheless she’s a good pumpkin gatherer and can fend off enemies well. Possible special ability – A quick burst that gets rid of enemies in a certain range.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]As the game expands and progresses, we will be meeting more slimey little friends![/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Level Mock Up – This is not an actual level design, but a mock up to test out tiles. The tiles are definitely a WIP. I know there are a lot of flaws that will be worked out, this is just to give an idea of the style.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [​IMG]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Menu Mock Up – An idea of what I want the main menu to look like. Scripting it into place is one of my goals this month. Also, it will change as certain features are definitively added and removed.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [​IMG]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]Mini Game – This is a possible PacMan inspired mini game. This shot is using the DS+ tiles, what I started out using before I began creating my own. Obviously, the tile style will be converted. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [​IMG]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]The fun thing about this game is that there is room for so many ideas! I’ve received a lot of thoughts regarding game play features, characters, story, etc. I’ve got a great list going. For now though, my goal is to keep it fairly simple and build and expand as I go. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]One of my biggest hopes is to port Slimer to a mobile platform. At the moment, I have no idea how that is going to happen. However, I’ve been exploring many options.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=12pt]My plan is to get a good solid build of Slimer done, then possibly look at doing a Kickstarter to not only pay for additional graphics, art, and scripting but to fund a mobile build. Again, not sure at all at this moment the best way to go about it, but I’m researching![/SIZE]

    @YangFly - Thank you so much! I appreciate your kind words! As for the menu script I'm not certain yet. I will probably try to work on it on my own, but I will definitely keep you in mind if I need to outsource it.

    @Scy - Thank you! And thanks for all of your support!

    Something about this game is very... Slimy. I'll be sure to play it when it comes out and get my ooze on. "Phrasing".

    It's so exciting to see how this is coming together! I like how you've kept a really simple and cheerful design, and the gameplay looks like a ton of fun.  :)

    I waited for my stupid like quota to reset before I commented on your thread. Stupid like quota. Let me love people!

    But as I've told you before. I adore the bright, super saturated, hard shaded appearance of all the graphics. Looking forward to a demo and seeing/hearing what ideas you have in mind to flesh out the game play. I prefer my games to be on the cheerful and easy going side, so this looks like something I would be highly interested in.

    I cannot believe I missed this, this looks and sounds like something I'd enjoy. Platformers may not be what I am best at, but boy do I enjoy some good old platforming action in a cutesy world.

    Thanks guys! Your enthusiasm makes me smile!

    And yeah, I guess platformer is the closest genre match - not a sidescrolling one, but the main goal will be to jump across various platforms, so... made sense to me to call it that. If I'm wrong, I hope someone will tell me!

    At least all the slime are happy :)

    I assume that means the fan art depicts the end game credits, after bad villain has been slain and the slimes are celebrating ? :)

    The game looks adorable. I bet your children love it :3

    I've never played Frogger before, so looking forward to trying this ^^

    Also, Amy's art looks amazing. Never thought slimes could be cute :D

    (On another note, I keep thinking people are talking about/to me whenever I see "slime" :p )
