Of deaths and stuff


  • Tiger Hat

    So… I’ve been attempting to complete the ‘no damage run’ achievement on A Wizard’s Lizard, pretty much the last achievement I need before I’ve finished the game 100% (in its current form). Given the game is not easy, I’ve found myself face-to-face with the game over screen again and again. I’ve grown quite familiar with that screen and well, I found it to be quite plain. So during a time at which I was particularly bored (and undergoing a temporary fit of madness), I decided to try and cook up something. Namely, I took a screenshot of the game window to determine the game’s resolution and then, whipped a little something. Once I finished said something, I took a screenshot of a run failed on purpose, remove the background, and replaced it with the something I made to see if it would look good or not.

    This is the result:

    Excluding this, the same boredom that caused me to make the above has also made me ponder about some things. One of those things was the abacus item. Its effect is pretty self-explanatory and logical ; it allow our dear protagonist to get an insight into all of that crazy math happening around him. However, my mind wandered as to how him actually using the item would look like in-universe. The result made me chuckle so I doodled it up. So here it is, guest starring a horribly off-model Zombie Overlord:

    I hope both will prove to be at least a bit entertaining.

    Pretty cool!
    Reminds me of this:

    Haha, I genuinely lol’d at that.

    Yep!
    They were.

    You’re right, the game over screen could use a little something. I really like the bloodied collar as it also reinforces the wizard/familiar bond and tugs at the heart strings a bit.

    The Abacus/Zombie Warlord comic is pretty funny! :) Might have to start an AWL fan art section or something soon.

    Josue: Thank you a lot! I didn’t know how to embed pictures in my posts so this will come in handy if/when I post more things on the forums.

    Goeffb: I’m glad you really liked it. I figured it would be a better idea mostly because of the varied ways Raga can buy the farm, thus making a ‘multi-purpose’ screen more relevent. Raga’s collar is his one true possession and the one item he will never, ever drop. He starts the game with it, even before you get the sword, and regardless of what you collect, of whatever happens, he never ever part with it. Even if Raga dies, he will keep the collar with him as a ghost. The moment Raga lose his collar is the moment he lose everything, failing his journey. Thus, I thought that a simple shot of his discarded, mangled, blood-covered collar would be a better idea than a skeleton shot or a gravestone picture (given the ‘continue as a ghost’ mechanic, Raga can theorically leave his bones/corpse far from the spot where he dies for real).

    I think a fan art section could be interesting, especially if I’m not the only one who post in it. Could also help to keep random stuff separate from bug reports and suggestions.

    Well maybe, I could continue my series of music covers…
