ill give it a shot. Not very good at mock-ups (i suck at backgrounds) but lets see what comes out of this. i already made some advances on this. Its in a really early stage, but i think i can manage to make it until sunday - the biggest challenge will be to actually do it with just 32 colors X.x as always,they are my original characters Tora, Clark and Tille, fighting the "Space Stalker" (ya, got a whole story with these guys. maybe I can write it around here later xD) cool name for a final huh?. The stalker isnt visible for the moment though :P.
 
I want to see whatthe rest is going to make, im pretty anxious. Hope im not the only one with an RPG in mind.

Ho hum, a very rough draft.

I'm experimenting with different mouths on the boss and different positions of the player, any mouth examples that you guys think would look good would be very much appreciated.



also, i've never made a background before, so the cave will be a trick to make

I think I miss understand something.
Must I make a original final boss battle scene for the competition with original Characters & Boss only with my own style and in a other position ?
Is this a (not finished) mockup?(not my entry):

Sry I never heard mockup before and the definition by wiki is not cleary and not for graphics. :/

Good catch on my avatar.

Also, I like the Aku mouth idea, but I think this one works better for one with something hanging out.

I made a change of tone from the original

And I know the menu isn't lined up correctly

This BG is a placeholder, while I didn't have catacombs in mind, I might go with that, should be manageable.

Inphy: That's lookin' pretty solid, but a little bit generic, though i know you're not done.

I'm gettin' there, still working out a better way to same "game over"
Really, any boss is the final boss if you can't get past em.

Either shuriken or sai. Both are equally awesome

Also, I'm nearing completion, here. Still have to do some shading and redo the background, though. The text shouldn't take too long.



Suggestions?

Why would 'original' mean remaking a game that already exists? That is the complete opposite of what is required.

Original: Your own game, invented by you - not fanart, not a remake, not a demake, not a clone, not a reboot, not a reinvention, not an adaptation.

Your own ideas; a game that has never been seen before.

@ Oren: It's cute, but the gingerbread man could use some AA around his icing, and the font is pretty hard to read.

@Puck: She looks a bit like she's leaning back, it may be easier to do a stationary firing position, so you don't have to worry about how limbs fall on their own, in a relaxed position.

By the way, the most beautiful game ever is Samorost by Amanita Design.
And their next one, Machinarium, looks like it will be even better, from the video previews.
Czechs are good, when it comes to animations.

that's a really cool playing field inphy, I think it would add a great extra dimension to either fighting games, where you have to stay on the platform as it scrolls from background to foreground while fighting, or at least in an rpg like yours, where you can move to forward and back positions, like some FF games. good stuff

Prustel, your Boss seems like a combination of Haunter and Ghastly, and your player's left thigh doesn't look right with that shading, maybe lighten up the inside of the leg.

You could try bringing out the rocks that are closest to the floor - the wall looks a bit like a straight wall perpendicular to the floor, with a rocky wallpaper. Quick edit:

[platformer]

Some things I like, some things I don't like. I really wish I could add some kind of texture to the rocks, but I'm not that good :P

Texture to the background seems to be the next thing, although it will only be simple. I also need to actually add the boss and the player which I'm not looking forward to.

The rough idea behind it is that the main character is in a computer game, except he becomes sentient and tries to get out. In the final boss battle, the game designer tries to sabotage the game in order to stop the main character from escaping. I was thinking of adding some 'glitched' tiles to show this, it would be quite an interesting thing to try out.

Are You saying that the rocks themselves look flat? or that the wall looks flat when it should be curved? what exactly do you mean? I'm not exactly sure what you did in the edit either. I appreciate your criticism, Ind I really want to fix it! Thanks.
