Thanks for the link Johan.. Now I have a way to make pointless stick figure animations on a pc :) Just like the ones I used to do in H.S. on flip books. Weeee

Here's what I have so far.. Ph33r my 1337 pixal skeelz.

right now, I'm not sure how I plan to end it but I'm sure something will come to me soon. ;D

Don't you have some kickarse game to develop?

Hmm... I guess I do. Richard, I hope you don't get too mad, but I think I'll drop out from the challenge. :)

Hmm..

I hereby nominate Kanzure to fulfill the challenge. Since he discouraged you, he should take full responsability! ;)

Hmm..I'm affraid I can't accept the challange right now. For one, I have no experiance with anything (but blitting) needed for a game like that, so meh. Would be fun.

Maybe we can abduct somebody else to do it. :P

Hmm ... well, one could do it without doing crazy vector graphics by simply using the images the program generates as it's tiles / character anims. A simple tilemap ... just one in which all tiles are animated. It could actually be kinda cool ... if painful to look at. Although I suppose then you'd have to worry about repetitive animations become annoying, not to mention the extra file size.

The cartoon Ed, Edd, and Eddy looks like how the game would be. It's not hard on the eyes, because it uses multiple colors. Just the outlines go swiggly and such..

Kanzure, You must join with the animating side. It is your destiny!!! :D

Heh I'd use Johan's suggestion and just make a custom line function that makes lines look hand drawn. Everythign would be outline form but it'd all look like pencil drawings and the animation would never "repeat". It'd be slower than straight line drawing but it'd ne a nicer effect. I'd use vectors/polygons for everything, you could make circles and all sorts of shapes from just points and lines.

There is a game out there (a platformer) that uses wiggly vector lines for it's graphics. I remember it actually being quite good. Don't remember what it was called though :S.

There was a Tetris game with wiggly lines not so long ago, they didn't move though.

It would be really cool to see a 3D game with wiggly black/white gfx.

Also [url http://robotduck.com/] has several sketchy games, but I want to turn your attention to Yard Invaders :)

On my old Mac (68k) I have a game called Adventures of Sean, IIRC. The graphics are almost as magnific as all your animations in this thread.

We need a StickHack compo!

What about yoshi's island?

I thought yoshi's island just had think black outlines to it's sprites - I can't remember them wiggling but I may be wrong.

There were times in which they wiggle, but not always, it was fairly static.

The lines didn't "wiggle". It just looked like it was colored by crayons.

You want animation with lines that "wiggle", go watch Stickin' Around :)

That's great William! :)

I didn't necessarily mean wiggly lines. Just a game that had this quick cartoon style animation. Think The Mighty Stopid in Johan's style. :D, or Alex 4 in a b/w cartoon 640 x 480 (or higher) mode. :)

Well, I like the look even if no one else does!
