--Best if viewed in a new window, layout chops off the edge--

Graphical (non-functional) mockup for CowPG, on the combat screen. An older mockup in flash demonstrating some of the animations can be found here.

Basic rundown of gameplay is sort of a mix of  turn-based SNES console RPG's like Breath of Fire with turn-based web RPG's like Kingdom of Loathing or Dragon Court. Basically it's planned to be a single player game with some multiplayer interaction (economy, pvp, chat, etc).

Classes and breeds were already briefly explained on my character sprites piece. Monsters featured are chickenblobs and giant chickenblob boss monster.

This looks like it was a lot of fun to make. Good job.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 6/14/2007 13:41
Looks fun!

Actually it's just using a lorem ipsum generator. It's pretty common in graphic design to use just for filler to see how the page looks with text. I don't even know what most of it means, but apparently it's excerpts from Cicero's "On the Ends of Good and Evil." Though since I chopped it up it's just gibberish.

I like your use of latin. Could this be your Magnum opus?

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/13/2007 23:33

Okay - Well, Im just starting to learn using Macromedia flash 8.0

So, i could help when i advance in learning.

Omenith (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/13/2007 17:42
This looks great! I wanna play!

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/13/2007 05:34
Warrior cows and chickenblobs--just fabulous!!!

Mr.Pharand (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/13/2007 02:57
The names were just random things I picked to reference at the time. Frontalot was from MC Frontalot, yes. Manny was from Manny Calavera from Grim Fandango. Edgeworth was from Edgeworth in Phoenix Wright. And the player name and the first character's name were a reference to the Mölly and Ringwald stop motion cartoon.

Mr.Pharand (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/13/2007 02:55
No, nothing's playable yet. We're HOPING to have the first the basics of the game done, and the first few areas and quests playable and being tested by the end of the summer, though considering how lazy the guy I'm working with has been on the programming end, I'm not sure how likely this is.

Akira (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/13/2007 00:43
is frontalot like mc frontalot? i hope it is.

edit: oh and is manny like manny from black books? i hope it is.

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/12/2007 23:06

I Really wanna play this, Is there any progress made, or playable parts yet?

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/12/2007 21:21

yes this is cool, nwo somebody get me a machete so i can chop'em all up and shove'm in my oven

Ouch! you are so correct. May I suggest you head straight over to FFF (Fonts For Flash). 100% pixel goodness in sharp and beautiful faces. If you head straight over to check 'Harmony' you'll be pleseantly surprised.

or these freebies may hide a gem for you

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/12/2007 19:48
Lol, my sister is named ariel.  I read this out loud to her and she looked hurt untill she figured out you ment the font, not her.

She's also blonde.

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/12/2007 19:46
Omg, I want to play this game.

Mr.Pharand (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/12/2007 19:45
It's actually not arial, it's tahoma. The difference is apparent in the fact that you can actually tell the difference between a capital 'i/I' and a lowercase 'l/L' (though I'm not sure there's any examples of that on the image). I'm open to suggestions if you can think of better fonts since it's so ugly and hard to read. I've never had any problems with it, personally.

It seems to be an oddity in that everyone complains about helvetica derivatives, yet everyone uses them, and nobody ever suggests anything better, or suggest something even worse. Of course, this might just be because I've spent too much time talking to graphics artists and fontographers.

The chickenblob is the greatest rpg monster I have ever seen.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/12/2007 19:33
Very nice mockup. No way thats hand pixelled type Adam. The uglyness that is Arial is apparent. Really hard to read too.

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/12/2007 19:30

Subgluteal Conflagration!  Love it!  

The chickens are too cute.

Did you pixel all those words?
