I am currently working on a game-hack called Unearthed, which is being developed using the EarthBound rom. This new hack will be fairly extensive, involving new map tilesets, characters and a completely new story. I have a blog online,
where I have been posting work-in-progress as it is completed.
Up until about a week ago I had been doing most of the graphical work on the game myself. This has primarily consisted of creating
of new tilesets
, by combining previous game elements in new ways and modifying palettes. In addition, my brother and I have done some simple sprite edits
based on concept art we've been tossing around.
Although I've been trying my best, I have come to the conclusion that I will need the assistance of some people with spriting talent in order to complete this project. This forum seemed like a logical place to look, and I would be most appreciative if anyone would like to lend a hand.
Currently the most pressing need is character sprites for the two protagonists, Mitchell and I.S.A.A.C.
. I would need 8 directional sprites for them - here is a basic sprite-sheet for a protagonist in EarthBound, for reference:
Down the line I will need assistance with other characters
, but at the moment the concept art is much too rough to work from. I am currently in talks with a couple possible concept artists to help out in that regard, so future supplemental material will better.
Even if no one would like to help out, I would appreciate any feedback you have in regards to the tile-set work I've been doing. The links I listed above are to YouTube videos, in which I do little "walkabouts" of tile-set test areas.
Thanks everyone, I look forward to your responses.
