More Unused Contest Game Graphics
Yep... once again, I've entered a contest and then been unable to
actually finish my entry. I definitely got further with this one (for
the 2012 Ridiculous Games Contest) than I did with most of my
unfinished contest games, but since I had so many school projects to
work on last week I just didn't have any time to get anything done in
the game... and so it got pretty much abandoned, and by this point it's
way too late to actually finish even half of what I had originally
planned for it.
Just like every other time I've abandoned a contest-entry game, that
means more free graphics that I made. Not too many this time, since I
might still end up using some of them (and others are of characters I
made that I don't particularly want everyone in the world borrowing),
but here's a few walkabouts and a set of hero graphics.
First of all, here's some full-color versions of sprites that were
previously all green: Cap'n Crunch (who would have made his third
appearance in one of my games if I had finished my RGC entry) and the
fat version of Ash who appeared in Puckamon.
And here's a new character who would have made his first appearance in
my unfinished game... the Giant Jamaican Banana, or "GJB" for short. If
you want to pronounce that abbreviation as a something that sounds like
an actual name (rather than just saying each of the letters like one of
those silly people who pronounce "HP" as "aytch-pee,") then you can
call him "Gajoob."
But yeah, as Spoonweaver noted shortly after I posted my first
screenshot featuring him, the Giant Jamaican Banana is based on those
giant stuffed bananas you can win at amusement park games. I recently
won a five-foot-tall one at Busch Gardens and thought it was so goofy
that I just had to put it into a game... and that's why you have
giant-Jamaican-banana graphics now.
