Metal Slug has been one of my biggest inspirations in pixel art and Artificer is basically my love letter to the series and to Nazca.
It'll be very similar to Metal Slug, a run and gun shoot 'em up platformer with a focus on monstrous bosses to fight and weapon upgrading.

The game will most likely not be very long, following the Metal Slug standard of 5 stages which will be relatively short.

 

Very quick mockup of an idea for Jeg’s arena. The fight’ll start off in the jungle with a giant carved slab he’ll spawn from, then the background will transition into space, stars, and planets all swirling around you.

I think this will be the final version of Jeg Graeder, I’m not sure what else to do. His arms are really bugging me since I want them to be a kind of translucent fleshy texture but I have no idea how to go about that with out blocking the inner tubes and eggs. I might add a little more on the corners of the shell near his eyes though.Also his hand positions kind of bug me but it won’t matter too much once they’re animated, which will definitely be a while before I even attempt it but whatever I guess.

Whether you’re indie or AAA, for consoles or computer, I want to follow you and get to know you !

cyberpunk game dev…

I pretend to be one so I can be part of the cool crew

still working on my first games, but I would definitely call myself an indie at this point

Haha, game developer.

Jeg Graeder update.I’m almost finished. I need to add more texture to the gold parts and figure out what to do with its arms.

So, I did some grass and plants and stuff. A lot of these tiles won’t be in the same areas as each other, and the shrubbery is a bit small and weedy right now and I’ll try to make them more full. I have no idea how to make a jungle so that’ll be a fun experiment.

I know I post a lot of this project but honestly, it deserves it. Look at this!

Wow, thanks so much!
