thanks yahkehbu! Well I did a little research on the wild-west, and I always liked to see western movies, read western comics. But I must admit I have very little knowledge of the indian culture! Nowadays it is hard not to offend anyone.. I was planning to make a Mexican gang, and a level where you have to pass through native-indian grounds.. but yeah.. tread carefully.. Thanks for your in-depth information!

I really like the style that you've got going here, cute sprites! Especially since you are looking to take this idea further, I am a bit curious about the 'indian' sprite. The feathered headband is mostly a fictitious design created by the western film genre. I might suggest looking at a specific tribe's dress to avoid the pitfall of perpetuating the 'generic indian' stereotype.



Feathers and headdresses 





It looks like you are going for Monument Valley in your bg? So maybe Navajo?  Also curious about the eagle/bird sprites. They stylistically look more like the Totem poles of tribes from the NW. But perhaps you were going for something like Kachina or Hopi mask/costumes? These all have ritual/religious uses in religions and cultures which are still practiced today, so treading with caution is always a good idea.


Anyway, good luck with the project! I especially like that the villains are bandits/robbers. So often Mexicans and Native Americans are placed as the villains in Westerns, so its cool that the 'evilness' is based on the characters bad deeds and not their race.

Great job! I love the the colors! The only thing I have to say is that the bad guys seem to be happily smiling and this could look a bit strange. I hope to be able to play your game someday :)
