You're tellin' me, deadeye. That looks pretty good, 7Soul. Hope you make the deadline!
I myself have far less graphical capabilities... Heck, all the graphics for this game I'm posting were made (quite obviously) in MSPaint. But at the least, this project is nearing completion.
--Space Striker Assault: Operation Lance--
It's about 80% done, with the only thing left to really work on is the final level and final 'boss', which I haven't figured out yet (so look out for a topic in help discussion soon, ha ha), as well as some outside contributions for intro and credits art. Other than that, I made the music, designed the levels/enemies, everything.
I'm excited to get it finished, and I've learned so much from making this that I'm confident I can return to my earlier unfinished works with greater gusto:
EDIT: blargh, the screencaps are all yucky looking
Five levels of high-flying action, pitting you against an evil race of alien space fish determined to wipe out humanity!
Anyone ever play the Darius games?? : )
