Hey everyone, I’m here for a Work-In-Progress Wednesday to show off what I’ve been working on!

Remember the alien-looking environment from a couple posts ago?

I’m working on some character asset packs to go along with it! The first one is a sci-fi soldier.

I’m really looking forward to animating him! He’s going to have a few different attack animations, including multiple-direction aiming and firing. It’ll be the perfect hero character for the new alien environments!

He’s gonna need something to shoot though, right? An alien environment definitely needs some aliens. Maybe one will come out of this mysterious egg?

Next, a sneak peek at an Atmocopter enemy!

This little dude is a Zapper. It uses its claws to climb up and down electrified poles! Here it is in-game:

Every so often, the Zapper will stop and fire at Atmocopter. The actual firing isn’t complete yet, but he does stop and play a little firing animation. Atmocopter can’t pass through the electrified poles. Defeating the Zapper will destroy the poles, allowing Atmocopter to continue. I love how this enemy turned out!

Thanks for tuning in! I’ll be working on some spooky October art next and doing some video editing and other prep work as I gear up for the unTied Games reboot on the 18th, so no WIP Wednesday next week. See you on the 18th!
