Thank you for your comments; it's nice to have more than simple "oh, nice!" hehe you got it. I thought about the old school "world maps" that used to make me dream so much, to draw this. The point was "making you want to know whats in this world". Guess it worked for you. I remember i was 3 or 4 and didnt have video games yet and I saw someone playing "mario land 2" on gameboy. The map was so incredible, the giant turtle and all the fun stuff. Later I got super mario world and I used to spend my time cheking all the little details of the world map.
And it would be awesome to make a game out of it hehe.
My fascination with the worlds of Super Mario 64 and Pokemon was greatly enhanced by the fact that I never got to actually play them myself outside of a few very rare occasions. Mostly I saw friends play, or just longingly watched them as they studied the strategy guides for the games. Of course I never got to read them myself. It only made me love those games more.
I wonder how we could go about turning this into a game concept, and then into a real game... Do you have anything in mind?
ooh..since you make flash games, I wasnt thinking about something too complicated. more like a 2D style platform game like aladdin (on snes and megadrive, very good game, maybe you know) something fun to play, fast, with air tricks lol. I like what I feel playing donkey kong for example. it's so smooth and instinctive.
oh i just tried it, quite nice, but i think the design isnt so yummy, is it? Do you know fancy pants? [link] I like how smooth it is. how easy is it to make something like that? maybe less "sonic" like, but just a simple platformer with comfortable gameplay?
