SpaceCute: Some sketches

Once upon a time there was a game design known as SpaceCrack. The setting, with its cool white iPod-inspired theme was a bit too niche. Here are some sketches of a SpaceCute theme. In SpaceCute, solar systems are delightful gardens filled with animals quite extraordinary. Anyone think that this is worth turning into a set of graphics?

take care

  1. I love it! I think my fiance would love a game like this. If someone were to cross a galactic civilation sim with Animal Crossing and give it a graphical style like this, she wouldn\’t be able to stop playing.

  2. …although I would recommend making ALL of the ships animals and bugs, and replacing that first ship with something cute.

  7. you developed a great solution to the space cute theme! it\’s original and will please a much broader audience than the ipod 50\’s previously proposed.and i agree that you should make all the ships bugs! as a incentive i will point a site with some amazing biological illustrations that could serve as inspiration for your space-bugs:http://caliban.mpipz.mpg.de/reitter1/index.htmlhttp://caliban.mpipz.mpg.de/reitter2/index.htmlhttp://caliban.mpipz.mpg.de/reitter3/index.htmlhttp://caliban.mpipz.mpg.de/reitter4/index.htmlby the way, there is a wrong link in the directory of all essays. the link \”Space Crack: Planet Basics\” directs to http://lostgarden.com/2005/06/paper-nintendo-characters.html and not to http://lostgarden.com/2005/06/spacecrack-planet-basics.html

    I\’ve got an almost complete Dreamcast and PC game that would be pretty cool using these graphics, although it\’s currently using Ari Frieshman\’s (sp) spritelib space art as placeholders. It\’d be nothing to convert the theme over to somethng more cutesy and less \”shmup\”.
