I was just scanning in some sketches from my work notebook this morning, when I spotted this doodle I did on the train to London the other week.
It's an attempt at getting a good look for the main character in I Sent My Monkey To The Moon, a new game idea we're working on. The game is currently in prototype form, available within Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint on iOS, where you can play an early version demoing the play control and jump mechanic.
The graphics in this prototype are deliberately test graphics, as I've not really got a proper look for the game in my head yet.
We plan to spin the project off into it's own game, and have plenty of ideas for filling out the game itself, but I'm still not exactly sure of the look of it.
I'm juggling my time between about five projects at the moment, so haven't given it any more thought. The finished monkey will probably end up looking nothing like this!
