      That's a pretty interesting idea. I'm not sure how easy it is to make fingers in pixel land, but maybe we could do something like have part of his arm/hand flashing while shooting.

    2. Creator Fishos on October 25, 2012

      Maybe he can wriggle his fingers or something while emitting the pixels, highlighting the fact that he's doing it actively rather than passively?

      My guess is because it's a .zip file with an .exe inside it (that screams virus to Chrome). I will eventually make it an installer when we release the full build and that should fix the problem! Thanks for reporting :)

      Apologies, I meant to leave that comment on #12. Relevant to this topic - I love the look. Totally agree with the folks asking for the emitter to come from the hands, glad you're working on it.

      Hope I haven't sounded too discouraging in the last post - the game is looking great and I'm as excited as ever to play. Best of luck!

      For the record, Chrome is warning me " is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous. [Discard]" - I'm not one to jump at false warnings, but you might want to see if you can figure out why that is.

      Looking really nice. Keep it up!

      Superbrothers is a huge influence to our art style, we love Sword & Sworcery :D

      @Mr. Very Mean
      This would be the time to start doing it! I'll get into contact with you and we can start making quick silver!

      @Jeff Weiss

      We actually separated the arm from the character so that, when spraying, it can come from your hand and your body can animate separately. It may look weird in some cases, but we'll keep working on it :)

      Awesome!! :D

      Oh man does this look sweet! I was just wondering what happened to this the other day haha. Also, I'm not the only one who thinks it looks like Superbrothers right? lol looks freaking amazing and very glad I backed it. Great work.

      Very exciting!

      Hey Trevor,

      Any update about the pixel creations reward tier? We communicated via email about some ideas, but I was wondering if there'd be any more discussion over look or updates about the ones you ended up using?

      Love the new look and been following the progress for some time. Can't wait for the release, especially on Ouya! Thanks!

    12. Creator Liam Markham on October 24, 2012

      Wow, I love the new art style!

    13. Creator Rick Loe on October 24, 2012

      Looks great! :)

    14. Creator Jeff "SnowyThing" Weiss on October 24, 2012

      It looks great so far! It would be fun to be able to manually set where the "pixel emitter" is on your avatar. Such as going all "Exorcist" with the green acid coming out of your mouth. :D!!

    15. Creator Grégory Bernal on October 24, 2012

      It looks really cool!

    16. Creator Matt Sweeney on October 24, 2012

      this looks great!

    17. Creator Owen Stevens on October 24, 2012

      This looks fantastic! - Great work!!

    18. Creator Fishos on October 24, 2012

      AWESOME. Wow, didn't think you'd get so much done so fast.

      To add to Christian's comment: How about an animation showing the character emitting the pixels from his hands? That would be more (sur)realistic I think.

    19. Creator Aubrey on October 24, 2012

      This is looking great!

    20. Creator Alan Fernandez on October 24, 2012

      Cool this game went from pixel sand to pixel pee! lol j.k, its looking really great so far, way better then I remember it looking a few months ago! keep up the good work!

    21. Creator Super Game Programmer 3 on October 24, 2012

      Yeah... we've gotten some... interesting feedback about that XD
      Especially the acid, that's gotta hurt

    22. Creator Christian Walde on October 24, 2012

      This looks REALLY good. However i have one suggestion: You might want to move the pixel emitter up a bit, so it does not sit on his hip. ;)

    23. Creator ET3D on October 24, 2012

      I didn't expect this. Now I have to download the demo. Great work.

    24. Creator Tom Lieber on October 24, 2012
