christmas carol

For some time I had wanted to make a game with this reason. So I've started designing, Let's see what comes out.

It will be a platform where you will have to get coins. Dodge the children who sing ...
In other phases you will have to look for the spirit of Christmas throughout the past, present and future ...
I hope there are good animations, good songs and lots of fun for a classic Christmas ...

I absolutely love this idea, and what you've done so far looks great! What's the chance of something playable before Christmas Day?

Looking good. Just need to get official endorsement from Charlie now. I'm sure he'll love it.

Awesome! I like the music. He taps his feet really clickly when idle. Maybe slow it down a notch and possibly get him to do it intermittently. Also consider other gestures e.g. checking time, looking at the screen and shrugging shoulders etc lol

I like the idea! Other things to do might be collect roast turkeys or christmas presents for upgrades after "eliminating" an "enemy".

Me too. Definitely nice to see something a bit off-piste source material-wise. I've got a vague recollection of a Christmas Carol game being in the works in the Amiga days, but then nothing came of it. I think it may have been a (drawing board stage) text adventure though.

I think a steely glare delivered with a growled bah-hum-bug would make a perfect special move. It could be like Simba's roar in Lion King.

Anywho, can we get the box quote suggestions underway?

"I'd buy that for a shilling!"

There goes the screen of titles, essential to be able to directly access the phases and put to mount all the mapping ...
I still hope to have it ready for download before Christmas ... so you can enjoy a Christmas game in Amiga that is not a tetris or a pacman, haha

with all respect for those who like the clones of tetris or pacman

This is pretty cool. What will be the target platform? Will this work on OCS machines?

As always ... it will work in A500 although it will be better in a 1200 or an Amiga with 020
