As well as just programming, I have also been trying to think up some story lines and develop a unique and lively world for my project. I made some character designs along the way and they can be seen here. Mostly I wanted to give each one something very unique as a kind of immediate identifier for the player to recognize. I came up with a few designs I found nice, but not many that I thought were really strong enough to be the player character. The top left character was just a little joke of mine.
A couple of these have been animated then placed in the engine, and can be seen in action here.
