So it's a runner Whimsical + Terrifying game about a girl that must escape this forest full of creatures because they are dangerous. For sure girl is scared but brave enough to kill those creatures. 

- I've fixed some issues with timing and scrolling. Thanks! - 

P.S.: I did run cycle and jump for the first time in my life so they are awkward a bit. I'll get  better in future :) Maybe timing is bad as well. This was a fun practice :)

Did not expect that at the end..

 Thank you!!  Hope you'll beat the game soon)

An awesome little game, working my way through all the medals and upgrades now :D


It actually looks even better than this

@Delicious , heh thanks!  we actually made a game based on this picture. You can check it here  if you are interested 


Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/14/2013 21:08

 She looks evil compared to that poor fox. D: 

Nicely done though. :p

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 9/11/2012 03:49

Nice colors.

A problem with the animation, but a great and well inspired work!

Yukoviz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/8/2012 10:26

 I like it, but the background and foreground move too much in comparison to the girl.

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/7/2012 01:18

With the colours and the jumpy scrolling, it makes the animation feel like an old 1920's film - which to me is a very good thing, even though the effect may not have been intentional:)

atpalicis (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/4/2012 03:02

Thanks :) Actually I'm huge fan of Studio Ghibli and Matt Groening so they've influenced on my art in some way. Though I still need to work (a lot!!!) on animation. Technically I'm not strong or even good lol

Innomin (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 9/4/2012 00:37

This piece is so good. It has a great atmosphere, and practically all the artwork this game would need. I'm getting a hint of Miyazaki in the character design, too, which is always a good thing. Despite the minor issues with the parallax and loop point, I think you really captured something.

Also, I really like the sprite animations. The separate "walk with sword" anim shows a real attention to detail, and the fox death anim is particularly unique. The girl is a little terrifying when she attacks, though... it's an underlying reversal.

 this is my favorite in this week's batch. such a nice style and someting about the way she just kills that fox...

RileyFiery (Level 8 Marshal) @ 9/3/2012 20:16

It feels really jumpy throughout the animation, but it's very nice looking.

Sanfrouah (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 9/3/2012 12:00

Cut off foxes!!!

Pandora'sSecret (Level 4 Murderer) @ 9/3/2012 07:41

The scrolling is a whole lot better now!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/3/2012 06:52

I so love the atmosphere in this. Voted =)

atpalicis (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/3/2012 05:52

I'm okay to answer any questions regarding my art. I'm not drama queen so I'll support any choice of this community because I find that this community is very fair and honest and I want to be a part of it :) 

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/3/2012 05:40

Of course I suspected it was all new and only asked to be safe and to be fair to others. We sometimes get PM from other members who ask these kind of questions and we sometimes ask questions meant to keep the peace and in no way accuse or question anyone's honesty here

I love your character and nothing is wrong in exploring her and her world with every opportunity. kutgw.

atpalicis (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/3/2012 03:48

  Yes, I know it doesn't loop properly and animation is bad! But I need to start it somehow so further pieces will be better ;)

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/3/2012 03:38

 Looks amazing, but the animation seems jumpy, like the mid trees are skipping. The Foreground doesn't seem to loop properly.

Muziak (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 9/2/2012 19:15

this is amazing! beautiful work

Yuran (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/2/2012 14:20

Interesting work :) 

damicon (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 9/2/2012 10:47

This is really cool! It reminds me a bit of giana sisters. Here the new android version, but still without parallax -scrolling.

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/2/2012 09:58

 cool ))) love that )

atpalicis (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/2/2012 07:06

It's 100% new. I even have sketches of this game in pencil. The character looks the same cuz all my characters are the same and I kinda used the same proportions. I work in one style only if it matters and I read all the rules.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/2/2012 06:11

Weekly challenges are meant to be 100% new pixelart only.

Just asking...Is this all 100% new pixels? I only ask because your gallery/avatar use the same character and maybe some of these tiles assets already existed (in this case the sprite itself is fine and acceptable unless it already existed in its entirety.)...

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/2/2012 06:01

I think you should move all the layers of trees and when she suddenly stops looks so odd.

Pandora'sSecret (Level 4 Murderer) @ 9/2/2012 05:38

the trees in the front scroll too fast... makes it hard to focus on what is actually happening. good job though.

Buddy90 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/1/2012 23:48

Try making the trees in the far back scroll too, just make them scroll slowly. Otherwise this is adorable.
