How to Contribute Graphics

1. Getting Started:  Email derek@playpower.org if you wish to contribute.  You can learn to develop NES graphics by reading Melissa's Tutorial and watching Don Miller's workflow in these videos.  You may also join our game design discussion list.

2. Art Direction: For now, we recommend checking out the representations of Hanuman from his recent animated film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmYNjrG_0Jc

3. How to submit your contributions:  Feel free to submit sketches, images or completed .chr & .nam files to me anytime, at derek@playpower.org.

4. Technical Requirements: NES graphics are peculiar, so make sure you read through the tutorials and submit files accordingly.  Sprites can be submitted in sizes 8x8 or 16x16. 

 

 

Current Project: Hanuman's Quiz Adventure

 

This is a quiz game that is implemented as a platformer game, and set within the narrative story of young Hanuman flying up to the sun.  Dodging fireballs from the sun, Hanuman needs to answer questions from the animals in order to build up his "flying power."  Questions are traditional trivia about science, math, geography, etc.  Along the way, Hanuman may need to avoid or fight monsters or demons.
