party fowls


Before I release my tearjerking-make-you-hug-your-mama-and-sob-like-a-baby theory about Snowdrake, let’s reveal a little biological science about him.
One of the battles flavor texts says something like “Snowdrake realizes his own name is a pun and starts freaking out”. Now you probably got the first part, it’s a pun on snowflake duh, but the second part may not be familiar to some of you. drake doesn’t just mean like a dragon, it’s the name for a male duck. It’s an arctic duck that is based on the personality of someone who makes annoying bad jokes, Aka a party foul ( fowl).
Now that thats out of the way, let’s look at that beautiful coloration, now Anser me this, what coloration do they have? As we can see by Chilldrake and Snowdrake’s dad,the species comes in greens and blues, which is common in ducks due to the blue green iridescence from the structure of their feathers. Ducks have lots of diversity, with many species having males with impressive ridiculous crests and eyes that can be vibrant and surrounded by markings, in this case Chilldrake has shades, Snowdrake’s father has glasses, and Snowdrake has eye makeup.
I think that’s makeup, maybe it’s black eyes from all the times someone threw something and he didn’t duck. Okay that’s the last pun, these jokes are starting to quack me up…it’s possible I may have a problem.

I keep seeing the characters labeled with two names like Elliot and War and Pieces and I'm getting a little confused with all the names could you maybe list them all???

All characters have the ‘pun name’ they’re based off of which also serves as their general theme. They also have a shorter actual name to go by, both are equally viable! You can find a list of all the characters names on the info page, but I’ll go ahead and re-list them here for you too : )

♦ Elowen- ‘Bear Hands’ (bare hands)
♦ Elliot- ‘War and Pieces’ (war and peace)
♦ Orion- ‘Midknight’ (midnight)
♦ Ray- ‘Rays Hell’ (raise hell)
♦ Kevin- ‘Party Fowl’ (party foul)
♦ Belle- ‘Slay Bell’ (sleigh bell)
♦ Bit- ‘Little Bit’ (Bit is a robot, it’s a pun on computer bits)

Yo! I'm really interested in trying to draw your characters, but I can't exactly find suitable references of them. If you could link me to some that I may have missed, or find the time to draw it out, that would be awesome! (I love all your work, and I can't wait to see the game when it's finished.)

Thank you! We’re currently focusing on working out the story, character personalities and building a quick demo of the game itself. I won’t be releasing full character sheets until the designs are settled upon (everything up to this point is still just a first draft of characters, and three of the characters haven’t even been drawn yet because they aren’t relevant to making the demo) For now any art in this tag is all we have online so far.

We’ve seriously considered this actually, it’s a good possibility! That probably wouldn’t happen until later this year though.

So does each character have 2 names? (Midknight/Orion, Slay bells/Belle, Party Fowl/Bill, etc.) and why? (Not a criticism, just curious :p

One is more like a title and the other their actual name, it really just happened because saying ‘war and pieces’ 20 times in a conversation gets really tedious so he became Elliot and the rest followed after lol. 

owlistic said: I saw that Midknight is using sign language in your animation and it made me really excited! Is he deaf? :) 
Anonymous said: is midknight deaf?

He is both mute and deaf. I’m going to do my best to accurately portray sign language but if I ever make any mistakes please let me know!

Rest of the questions under a cut.

anonymous asked:

Ok, so will this game just be a pc game, or mobile devices too? And what is the main theme of it?

Given the ever-increasing complexity of the game as we work on it, our goal is PC and will remain PC for the time being. We’re not ruling out a simplified mobil version but it’s not a priority now. The main theme is kill as many things as you can get your hands on.

Anonymous said: Do you have an overall plot for your game? 

There IS a vague plot but we’re not going to talk about anything this early. Not until things are more set in stone. Literally everything we have now is subject to change as we continue work.

annatomic said: hi there! I know you might be annoyed with this question, but I can’t really find the answer no matter how much I search your blog. It could just because I’m blind or something but I just decided to ask as straight forward as possible. What type of game are you creating? Like, action adventure, rpg, webcomic, sandbox style, you know stuff like that?

It’s going to be a 2D side-scrolling hack n slash style game. 

Anonymous said: So.. Do you have like, a mini-profile for any of the characters yet? Like, their personalities, and interests and what they look like? You know, like how you would find it on a Character’s profile on a wiki or something.
Anonymous said: my friend george washington wants 2 know more about elliot and orion…

I have my own loose ideas of personality types and such but nothing set in stone yet, we’re currently focusing on getting a rough demo out so we can start playing around with battle mechanics. I don’t see us releasing character profiles for a while since literally nothing is finalized now just ideas >.< 

Anonymous said: Have you ever thought of using pixel art for your demo? because theres a really good program called Aseprite that’s good for animation and stuff

I’ll keep that in mind! As of now I want the game to feel like you’re playing in a painting so probably no pixel art.

Anonymous said: Would it be alright to make like Pinterest boards for the game even tho it hasn’t even come out yet I just love everything about it already and stuff X3

Of course! It would be awesome to have everything link back to this tumblr page if you do : ) Thanks!
