I'm making a game that's all about bunnies and zebras and bears and snakey-wakeys and eagle-beagles! Oh, so cute!

...Or maybe not, like this piece shows and possibly spoils what awaits in the game I'm making. Heavy Eversion inspiration, I must say, but I want to make my game as different from Eversion as possible so my game can be unique (and to avoid unintentional plagiarism as much as possible).

Done more or less, decided to try something new and limit myself to only red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, white, black and medium gray (and apparently this kind of approach does wonders because I forced myself to use the colors in a "new" way to "unify" the palette). Done for the Bait and Switch challenge.

Wasn't sure if it would actually freak/creep people out, so I put a warning in the preview, but please tell me if it gives the surprise away or something or if it's not needed. As for the surprise, I hope it qualifies in the challenge.

Oh yeah, almost forgot; I've already got a working title for the game, and decided to title the piece after it.

I hope you guys like it.

If you wish to view the second frame seperately, the second frame can be viewed here.

P.S. This piece contains Hero 108 expies because I love that show to death (even though I don't watch it anymore because it's no longer airing). Thought I'd note that.

As a fluent English speaker, what he said makes no sense at all.

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean (I'm not a native English speaker so I don't know what do you mean). But if you're talking about the speed of the second frame being too fast and want to see the second frame, you can view it seperately by clicking on a link in the description :) I guess I could slow it down a bit before the deadline steps up...

Any one get the number on that plate? So fast!

I am able to change the timing, but since I wish to keep the timing as is, I think I'm better off uploading the second frame seperately.

The second frame can be viewed here now. I'll be adding it to the description as well.

I wanted to look at the second frame as well. I guess you can drag out the gif. onto your screen and then open it up to view the second frame...

Iscalio (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/3/2014 16:36

is it possible to lengthen the time on the second frame. there's a lot there I can't see. or is there somehow we can see these second frames somewhere else?

Right now, all I can say is that it's up to you to ponder why, for now; the "diamond" (it's supposed to be a gem) doesn't change for a reason, but since I haven't even made the game yet, revealing the reason would be spoiling (at least in my opinion) because it has to do with the plot. The reason will be revealed once (and if) I make the game ;)

I like this bright colors and the bear change face) 
Why dont you change the diamond colors?
