Larry - The Fangame - Added art
« on: October 12, 2008, 11:28:38 AM »

Well here's a teaser on what I have been working on.




So whats the plan you ask?
- Make small demo(one scenario) showcasing the power of wintermute, or maybe just a small demo.
- Episodes that are connected.
- Maybe some voiceacting.
- Simple but funny puzzels that make you go 'Ahhhh'.

and finally...
- Post it online and charge ONE MILLION DOLLARS for it;) no just kidding. Sharing it with the wintermute community.


And whats been done:
- Wintermute coding(like I said its just one scenario, maybe 10 puzzels and 5 npc).
- Text Conversation.
- Icons.


and the todo:
- The main art(not as bad as its sounds). Been trying different styles and the pure cartoon style don't look good. 3d would be easier but this is a Larry game. Cant decide how cartoony I want it. Right now its heading to pure cellshading with a border(vectorart), like the teaser.
- The music. This is the hard part. Will it be jazz? Or just ambient?


Software:
- Inkscape for vectorart
- Audacity for sound.
- Photoshop for the teaser montage.
- And wintermute.


Closing words:
Well like most of my projects this will never be completed, but who knows I might inspire someone else... Im not sure if this is even a legal project(any input from you guys)? Anyway its just for fun.

It's definitely not legal since names/characters/locations/etc are copyrighted material. But this doesn't mean that the right holder will act in any way towards a small demo/game. The worst thing that can happen (if the project gets famous enough) is they'll ask you to change names/characters.

EDIT: Unimportant change.

As far as I know, Al Lowe regained the rights on Larry, and I guess he wouldn't sue you, since there already were Larry fangames supported by him. But anyway, its still illegal, official.

A yes, the legal discussion. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fangame#Legal_issues not everybody likes fangames)  :D Its just moving fanart, I reason. If someone wants me to remove it, I will. After Broken Sword 2.5 was released I was inspired to share my small project with you guys. Nothing more, nothing less.

Noone asked you to remove the post. I just replied to your question since you asked for input. ;) It's not illegal to post about it. Feel free to post any details you like in the future.

I love Larry! I want to see your fangame!!!  ::rock

For me the best way is to make it in 2D cartoon style like Leisure Suit Larry Love For Sail.
For the music you CAN use the original as Larry games because Al Lowe share it and let's you use in fangames if you don't sell it. You can download all the Larry music from Al Lowe offcial site: http://www.allowe.com/Larry/musicdownload.htm

I was waiting for a long time who someone start a new Larry project like the old Larry games with Al Lowe (1-7), not the 3D Larry that Sierra are making now.

Its pretty simple. Larry returns to his past;D(not giving to much away).

Im still working on it, but working offshore doesnt give you to much freetime.

Its just some art and the music that remains but it suck ass to draw on a laptop.

I was planning posting the game scene for scene so if I post screenshots it would spoil it.

Here is a vector trace of Larry a did when I started the game.

Not dead yet. Doing 'the wastelander' over at nma-fallout.com but since there is another fan game inprogress i thought I post some old art I did for the game, maybe to inspire.
