Updates On Super Adventure Pals 2
Not to long ago I worked on the menu as I was sick of looking at the placeholder one we had, I also went to the liberty of timelapsing the process, I was pretty happy how it came out and worked pretty hard getting the background pretty enough to get up to sap2 standards.
For the treevale boss Jay and I thought it would be cool to have one those awesome boss transitions, Which resulted in me having a go at digital painting again I have only had a few goes at it which have all ended quite poorly but they came out alright I thought, The original verison Jay commented needed more action which is seen in the other pic. We may still need to add in some background blur so the tree stands out a bit more.
I decided after being frustrated with where the map was going for quite a while to live up to sap 2 quality standards I would have to totally remake the map as there was issues with perspective and it just seemed a bit dull. Mind you I worked on this map maybe a year ago.. So I reinvented it as seen in the picture below.

PestoForce also known as BomToons recently finished a successful kickstarter to his game super chibi knight, raising over 12k which was quite impressive and I think has persuaded me to maybe pursue kickstarter as a form of monies for super adventure pals 2. The game has also been greenlit for steam and is quite exciting for us flash developers into moving out games into the indie market. The first chibi knight was very awesome and definitely inspired us with super adventure pals.
