And finally, it's all up for web release!
I've been so excited to finally get this out there officially, I can't even tell you!
SO: this is Selah.
Well, this is the demo for Selah.
This is my final assignment for MJ Begin's awesome "What's Your Story" class...we were assigned to make a game. SO, in the month that followed I contacted my friend Peter Lefferts, who is an awesome dude and a programmer of no mean skill, and pitched him this idea and we went to town! This is the result of that month's work: A world, characters, a story, a puzzle, a level a game, animation, and music...Selah.
A labor of love to be sure, and alot of work
It's framed basically as one level/room/puzzle from what may in the future be a whole game called "Selah".
I could talk forever, but I'll try and keep it all brief. It really sort of explains itself. It's a 16-bit adventure game based off the old SCUMM engine because Peter and I are both totally in love with Monkey Island 1 & 2.
There's definitely much further to go with this and it's in both of us to keep it up, so if anyone out there is reading this, it'd be awesome to have some 'motivation' to get this made!
But that's not the point, the point is that you enjoy!
So, without further ado here, meet Uri (our protagonist) and Argo (a blue Minkel) and welcome to Volarus.
Welcome to Selah!
Edit: lolWhoops, its supposed to be Eglantine, not Eglintine.
Wha-wahhwahaaat is this? Thats that your thinking right?
Well, I'm thinking about animating the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series...what do you guys think? I'm an amateur at animating but I'm a fast learner and have been considering doing this for a while. It would have one episode per chapter, so about 27 or more episodes per book (I'm only focusing on the first book right now though, lets not get ahead of our selves X3), and If I continue with it, exactly 15 'seasons', one per book. Yikes. But It should be fun and make could practice. And that doesn't mean I've dropped my comic either, mind you, thats still my main 'project', and I'm so close to picking it back up again I can taste it...its wild cherry flavored.
Mkay, haha, so there's a badly drawn unfinished picture of a barn owl near the end because the file had an error for some reason and wouldn't let me continue working on it, it wouldn't open for me, but luckly I had this file. I started another new one to finish, I'll upload that after I'm done with this.
This obviously shows Soren and his sibs, Eglintine and Kludd. The picture of them together is supposed to be how they'll look in the begining, like before Soren is pushed from the nest. Any suggestions please???
All drawn in sloppily flash since I will (hopefully) be animating this with flash. I won't be using voices, but I will be using music, and maybe even some owl vocals if I am able, I'm still not that good with adding sound to animations.
Any critique, suggestions, tips, or tricks concerning the designs or flash 100% welcome!

Additional Comments Not sure what category this belongs in; it's a photo with a script to manipulate the pixels in a certain way so it's not really a flash movie made frame by frame I guess Playing around Sorry for the super lame title.

Hurray, my first animation! (I hope there aren't any grammar mistakes or typos in there, if you find anything, do tell me. Basically, I took the original Poe-Text, but I translated it into "Easy-English")
