ok, now it makes sense. also, the circular screen device idea is kinda cool actually. maybe something like "no internal transparency" could be implemented in the future, where there is only transparency that defines the shape that is something other than rectangle, and no transparency inside that shape.

Aww... I really like this challenge, that's my favorite resolution and all. But I just don't have any time to spare this week :.(

Maybe mockup could have transparency if it was for gaming device with circle shaped screen or something.

Ugh, just when I was going to say I was glad there was no animation.

Thanks for pointing that out. It was meant to be optional animation, not optional transparency.

ok, game mockup with no animation? could be done of course, but they are more fun with animation, really.

Any kind of cat? Can it be (based on) a fictional cat character (for example Garfield or Top Cat)? If not, I guess I'll go with a generic cat character.

How can you have transp in a mockup?

I wonder how many Schrodinger's  cats there will be.

Oh, at first glance  I thought the title meant a Transformer cat....although strictly speaking it doesn't state it can't be a transformer cat in a platform game.

... I actually just made something like that and haven't uploaded it yet...But I'll make anotherone, thistime even more cat themed.  :D

I'm having Bubsy flashbacks o_o

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 1/11/2016 00:57

Yes to both.

Does this include big cats (such as lions and tigers)? What about anthropomorphic cats?
