I love the Tenchu series. And I've always felt it has never received the attention it deserves. Hence, I'm interesting in making a Tenchu ryona game. Basically, you play as Ayame. Side scroller, with rape animations when you lose. And maybe in the future, game-over CGs. For the past few days I've been reading up and experimenting with GameMaker and learning how to create sprites. I feel they are quite simple to understand and execute, and that creating a simple game is very feasible and attainable. I'm a complete beginner at this, but to give you a rough idea where I am right now, this is what I've managed to produce with close to NO experience and a few hours: This was mostly a rushed job, as I was very eager to put my new found knowledge on sprite animations to test. http://gifmaker.me/PlayGIFAnimation.php?folder=2013102513sGFwtTOWdQEAh6g1UO6Jau&file=output_v3vimD.gi Don't mind the blue background, it was necessary to cut out the background and view it in Gamemaker. But essentially, with time and effort, it can only get better and better. Done with MS paint! So if you're like me and you're a huge fan of Tenchu (and love seeing Ayame in sticky situations), and would like to work together on this little project in any way (pixel art, ideas and input, etc etc), I look forward to it ^^. TL;DR version; Like Tenchu? Like Ayame? Interested in making a game? Post!
