Can skeletons be cute?
Edited on Sun May-24-09 10:48 PM by DarkTirade
A while back, before school started taking all my time, and before my computer crash recently, I had been working on a cute little sidescroller game. I was kind of going for an anti-God of War style. Based on mythology, but instead of having epic heroes and giant muscles flexing on the screen, the main character was going to be the younger brother of Death and Sleep (Thanatos and Hypnos). His brothers go missing, his quest is to find them so the natural order of things doesn't get thrown out of whack. He, however, does not have his brothers massive godlike powers. He's just a cute little skeletony figure. No massive powers. No immense heroics. Just a little guy on a big quest.



So... what do you think? Is he cute, despite his skeletonyness? :)

Also, I'll upload the one musical theme I wrote. I wanted the underworld theme to be a bit dreamy, rather than downright creepy. :)

2. Good point.
Even with the scythe he's not particularly scary. :)

6. Thanks.
I figure it'll take some work to bring out cuteness in some settings, most namely the underworld... :)

7. I thought it would be good to try something a bit different. :)
I don't remember how that idea popped into my head, but it did.
