First thing first, I'm releasing a lot of my old art for public use. I've had so many irons in the fire for so long, it's been a really really rough past couple of weeks. Hit after hit after hit and I'm getting tired and I'm running out of money.
I've worked on dozens of games and none of them are ever going to get finished, mostly because the programmers lost interest, but in a few cases it's just me too. Some of these art assets are just culled from projects that we may yet finish as well. Anyway, point is, here is some art for you guys to use in your games if you want!
I'd prefer some minor percentage of ad revenue as a royalty for use, but it isn't required. I really enjoy making this kind of art, I hate to see it go to waste hiding away on my storage drives.
A lot of these are really old and not up to par with my current abilities, but there it is. Also, I've go this game I've very much wanted to finish, but it just isn't going to happen. I've sunk weeks into it and it's moving too slow. I won't make enough money on it to warrant finishing it, so I'm pulling the cord. You guys can see what little I finished here though.
You won't see it in the game, but I painted over 40 full body shots of characters, dozens of locations, but it just isn't feeling like something that is going to get done. There are too many complex things in the end that I just can't do alone. And looking back, every scifi game I've made in the past (I'm looking at your Wayfinder) has been a failure of epic proportions. It just isn't meant to be. But what little I did do, and it isn't much, I'd like someone to see.
I wanted it to be a slow paced story type game, centered around the supporting characters. The player would play as 'captain' ala Star Trek, giving them orders and sending them into danger. The orders the captain would give, would help determine if they survive, got hurt, and so on. I feel like I just bit too much off with this one though, it doesn't look like much, but refresh and replay a few times and you'll see changes in the story, the variables were rapidly getting out of hand, as was the file size.
I'm also pulling the plug on Rebel Sky. I can't get Stencyl to do what I want, and I'm not a good enough programmer to make anything unique with it anyway. Just rehashing and rehashing and rehashing.
You can play what little bit I completed here --

Thanks for scoping out what I've been doing guys. Cleaning my plate like this will hopefully restore my drive some. The only thing left is Guild Dungeons 2, I have some of it completed and I need to drag it out and decide if I can finish it or if I should put a bullet in her head too.
