Demo 2D platform game level video and sketches

Here is a fairly old scan from a rough sketched drawing from my moleskin notebook. I have a few that are dotted about at home and in the studio to capture ideas for parts of environments, platforms, objects and characters that I am pulling together for interactive apps and games.

Being a simple sketch, I spruced it up a bit with some digital paint. I made some simple custom pencil and paint brushes in PhotoShop to retain the hand-made traditional art look.

I have created several prototype pencil-drawn games in Adobe Director and Flash over the past few years using a game engine I wrote in an old programming language called Lingo (it’s very similar to JavaScript). When I get round to it I’ll do a screen capture compilation video of these at some point.

Here is a demo screen capture video I made of the hand-drawn demo game level drawing from above. It’s got a rusty acoustic guitar riff I played over the top just to add a bit of atmosphere to the demo footage.
