are the graphics in Copy Kitty models or sprites?
They’re made in 3D, but then rendered out into a sprite sheet to be displayed in the game. This lets me have really high-detail models without causing any slowdown, and gives me some additional control over how they’re displayed (like warping it, or displaying glowing stuff that will always be behind it even if it wouldn’t physically make sense). Here’s what one of the files looks like:
Will there be future boss contests?
Most definitely! They’re super fun and they get some great community involvement going on. The only real problem is that it’s a pain to make some of the bosses, since there are so many good entries! As a reminder to people, the blog has been somewhat inactive, but if you want to see progress on stuff, check here where I post every day, usually relating to the new bosses.
Someone also asked “is an online versus mode planned”, which the answer is “maybe”.
any plans on making an online multiplayer mode for copy kitty?
Definitely planned! A co-op mode is actually the original reason we came up with Savant being playable. Don’t expect it to happen super-soon, though.
um tumblrs not letting me ask a question while im logged in :( could i perhaps get the copy kitty songs emailed to me if i drop ya my email? o:
Yeah, although it doesn’t let you post links in a question, so just put spaces in it and I promise I’m smart enough to figure out what it is :P
okay i think i was telling myself in the last fanart dump that I drew too much and I needed to stop, but now I REALLY need to stop. So this is what I’ve got, I’m pretty sure this is everything related to Copy Kitty I hadn’t uploaded yet.
I just can’t help it, really, I love that weeaboo catgirl and I love her weird nerdy bug uncle. They’re great.
is there any chance the soundtrack to copy kitty will be made public for download?or is it just going to stay bundled with turbo edition?
It’s probably going to stay like that, mostly just because it has Turbo-only music in it, and as a tiny bit more incentive to purchase. If anyone asks for a copy of it though, I’ll just send a free one. That would include you, if you didn’t ask anonymously :P
Double feature today, since the blog’s been inactive for a bit. This is a new song for Copy Kitty 1.8, for the new Endless Mode bosses!
One of the contest winners, Pyphora! I already posted a bunch about it on my twitter but I wanted to make sure learning-timebuster sees this, since you’re the one who designed it after all!
Okay so I didn’t do as good on this one, I’m terrible at drawing sawblades still. And I overdid the nonsense shiny here. But still, I sorta liked this design too.
I honestly can’t wait to see a Hixant appear, and then merge with a single gomotra and this comes out.
Also… I think I sort of ignored the “less sofisticated” part, too. Oops!
Tom continues to do cool fan-art of things that don’t even exist yet!
How did I draw this???? I want to do it again???
This is in honor of the Copy Kitty boss contest! Someone submitted a more feasible alternative to my snake boss, and I kinda liked it. Missing out on ASTRAL WHISKERS but whatever, right?
Also, I didn’t draw turrets because I shaded the metal first without thinking, and if I tried to draw the purple over that I’d waste some of my previous effort and ruin my mojo! Also it’s 3:30 am and im tired
