My pirate-y idea! X3

Previous Entry My pirate-y idea! X3 Sep. 3rd, 2007 @ 10:08 pm Next Entry
Ooh... I think I've decided how the pirate game I'm making for Talk Like a Pirate Day is going to be!

.... It's going to have a pirate kitten, not a LOLkitty though!

It's basically going to be some sort of Arkanoid / Breakout clone, where the kitty bounce off it's ship.... which is a pie shaped (pie-rate, get it?)

And the "booty" will be tasty yumminess! X3

And here is were I need a bit of feedback...

Is it pirate-y enough or should I turn the items into gold and diamonds and stuff? I could also give some of the food item eye patches and bandanas maybe? Would it feel to wrong to eat food with a face? Since it's an arakanoid clone the items should take more than one hit, which is why I chose food since each hit could be a bite, and seeing a cookie half eaten with a face.... I dunno...

I'd really appreciate if anybody know where I get free watery / beachy / piratey music, legally, of course and kitty sounds too!


I'll probably start doing for pixel art for it before going to bed unless everybody thinks it's a bad idea...

There probably should be some gold and diamonds. It'd be cute to see food items wearing little pirate hats, bandanas, and eye patches. I think it'd be funny seeing cookies with a half eaten face. XD Then again, I've always had a slightly morbid sense of humor.

I'm not sure where you can get sounds and music from.

Yeah, it would probably be better with food and booty! :3

I'd probably be going to far if the food yelled with each bite... "AAH! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! WHY DID YOU DO THAT!" XD

I can do voices and I have some stock sound effect and music in the game, but if I can find something else it would be cool...

XD That would be hilarious to have them scream out in pain.

I just had another idea though. Maybe bonus points for when you eat a citrus fruit? Citrus fruits were used to cure scurvy, and they were expensive to get and you could make them as rare spawns.

Okay, Ger suggests that if you make this a timed game, the timed bar should be your scurvy bar, and when you eat a orange or whatever, your time bar fills up some more.

I don't mind the idea of food with a face being eaten.
