Let’s not beat around the bush, things are obviously at a halt. Much of our needs at the moment are art assets. We have one individual doing the spriting now, which is already an inefficient way of doing things, and no battler artist as he has more important priorities now.
The choice of making an entirely new sprite set to match the comic, while a good idea, is going to be a long one, even with a decent team. We’ve had to deal with more important priorities in our personal lives, obstacles that ended up presenting themselves even when time was available, or the lack of the needed skills to aid those already trying what they can.
That’s why I’m posting this as a recruitment call. We need spriters and artists. Character sprites mostly have bases that can be used, so that should be relatively simpler. Artists, on the other hand, have their work cut out for them. They’d need to emulate the comic’s style, which I understand is asking for a lot, even more so considering the number of OCs that exist to aid the players.
Should you be interested, leave a comment here, and we’ll start talking.
