Trip Trap 1 - [link]

And finally, here comes Trip Trap 2 :)

It started off with just the idea of having in-game footage as the proof of concept - but some more ideas came into play during the project so now theres an bit of an intro and some extra stuff where the credits are.

Sorry about the poor sound quality, I'm no expert at sound stuff - I just use the tools that were available to my convenience, being a headset mic 'n pc. But yeah, voices were not part of the original game footage idea, so that wasn't too big of a concern for me.

It did give me the opportunity to make the credits more entertaining. Overall, t'was a fun thing to add.

Hope you enjoy. :)

Take care, be safe

@03:43That's pretty cool man, really looks like game footage. Sorry if this was said already, but if you get some time you may want to check out some of the free game engines out there. I hear Panda 3D is pretty good, free too. I heard Microsofts Visual Studio is free too for making games on the PC through XNA, but I don't know a thing about it unfortunately. Looks like it'd be a fun game though, especially if it's two player.

Since the models were used from Trip Trap 1, it saved me some time.
It was about 600 hours to do the rest - animate, music, sound, recording, magic effects, UI, etc...

Absolutely amassing! (I know you’re not interested in writing a game engine but why not modify one, they do that all the time)

You have no idea how much I enjoy watching your work and this one in particular is my favorite! Love the game-ish design of the whole ting!

TidalNight Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2008
Yeah, modifying is also a good alternative to saving time, but yeah - A great deal of consideration went into weighting up what I wanted as a result of this Trip Trap idea. And I came to the conclusion of a pure animation that presents itself as a storytelling world with the abstract element of game mechanics.

So making this actually interactive where you can play the chars is not something I'm wanting as a direct result of this project. But yeah, theres a fair few other factors that come into play, given this is also for my folio, too - I'm still settling to find a comfortable workflow and experimenting sometime during animating n stuff - hence the lack of a real in-depth storyline in these animations.

Thanks for the comment. :)

1, very professional looking logo.

and 2, to me the characters feel out of place in a non cell-shaded world.

Just as a quick additional comment, I don't intend on turning this into a game.

So please, don't ask about it.
I feel that programming is an art too, and I truly respect that - but I'm predominantly a visual artist and thinker.

This is my expression of that passion.

Machinema? This would be considered the other way around, looking at my process in making this.
