Two screens of a game DJD and I are making for the Yoyo games winter competition. http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker/competition01 

If anyone knows of any music and/or sound effect composers that would  be willing to do some work for a possible cash bonus (top 1,2, or 3) that would be much appreciated.  Thanks for any help in advance, we certainly need it with this harrowing deadline :3

I like the top part, excellent. But i think that the bottom part is a little flat.

Honestly, I think this is my favorite piece on Pixel Joint.

I forgot how great these graphics were, so wonderful to see in motion. It's a shame we didn't finish. Pretty much all the graphics were completed and all the programming is done, all we had to do was finish the level design and tie up loose ends. Perhaps we go back to it this winter, or release it as open source? =P

Someone's been watching the trailers for the Golden Compass :P  That does look very nice, I suppose the inventory is a bit too large for my taste, but whatever.

I love you dude, you're the man. I'm currently also trying to enter the competition, and this is awesomly inpsiring. I guess I'll just have to aim for 2nd price if it indeed plays as awesome as it looks, haha.

This is wonderful, love your tree and the depth, as well as the slight ground perspective and characters ... I like it all!

Just great, and incredibly appealing

user
Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 11/27/2007 20:30

wow thanks for all the great comments =)

Neota + adarias - thank you for the insight, I was having trouble with the main character and how he fit into the scene.  Ill certainly take all this advice into account.

To all who pmed me regarding music: Thank you so much for all the help guys, we're a little busy here but we'll contact all of you as soon as possible.

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 11/27/2007 18:18
Just by seeing the icon on the main page, i knew it was yours. Fucking ace work, dude. <3

user
Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 11/27/2007 14:54
fantastic work but the purple character becomes background.  Id suggest a nice color to add to the scene, such as gold (complement) or green (keep with winter and round out secondary colors)

Also, the use of green should be made perhaps warmer and echoed somewhere.  Healthbar and wrapping paper both come across as alien in their current forms.  If you're adverse to a warm green element, i say swap current greens then for gold as well.

just a thought: http://xs121.xs.to/xs121/07483/Mheh.png

best of luck!

This is great and I love it except for the text--the red AA sticks out on my monitor and seems to make it look more jaggy than smoothed; maybe it's because the red third of the pixel is the leftmost (on my LCD at least) while you still use red pixels to aproximate a subpixel curve in the right side of the pixel?

Not sure if you read my PM, but I can help with music too. Check the links in it for mp3 and midi samples. This looks great btw, has a very nice cozy Christmas feel to it.

WOW! Now THAT is some amazing color choice!!

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 11/27/2007 04:32
except for the character, I am getting a very Ghouls'n'Ghosts vibe.. which is awesome (tree is delicious, I must eat it now. great cold solemn night atmosphere.).  The character though reminds me more of Dangerous Dave or Final Fantasy in style -- more cartoony.. The outlines look realistic on others, on him they just look black, so I suggest lightening the outlines a bit. As it is, he pops out so much that he doesn't seem to even be near the same plane as the polar bear.

Looks absolutely awesome! It's so nice knowing it isn't just a mockup and will actually get made. Good luck!

user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 11/25/2007 16:24
If it plays as good as it looks am sure you'll win.   That is if it wasn't for the trend of shallow 3D games getting so highly rated on yoyo...

user
Vic (Level 5 Sniper) @ 11/25/2007 16:23
freakin' awesome, hope you guys find someone to compose music/sounds for you
