Post Housepets 8-Bit Game
I was thinking, wouldn't it be fun to have an 8-bit housepets game? Nothing too fancy, maybe just 3 levels with minor enemies and a boss.
An example of what I'm talking about to clarify:
Image

I have no idea how to do this, so I'm asking for the help of all you techies out there. I might not be able to do it on my computer because its OS is Windows XP. It's just an idea, and I thought it might be a fun project. Maybe if we do a good job, Rick will put it on the actual Housepets website!

Sploder is a site that can do exactly what your talking about.
CHAOKOcartoons made his game, Diggy the Huskey on there.

Hmm, I'd love to help out but I'm still working on a BUNCH of stuff (CK!, Project MP!, and something that only one of you knows about...). I have gamemaker on my computer, but so far I only know how to make sprites. If you want it to be simple, then yeah you should use Sploder, it doesn't take too long to learn how to use.

You might want to change crap to carp to keep it more faithful to the comic.

It's a great idea, it can work for both platforms and beat 'em ups genres, and the 8 bit graphic is always nice and makes the things easier. :) But, as usual with such ideas, the problem is that's needed someone to bring them to the reality...
That screenshot is from a very original proposition, at Curtailed webcomic, here the page with more info. GameMaker Studio program was used to built it. There are much more images that could be taken as example... :P

My computer doesn't seem to run gamemaker...any recommendations? Also, how would I make a sprite? I'm thinking about making the game inspired by the Houspets! Babies arc. With the final boss being the crazy guy or maybe Fluffy, I'm not sure yet.

You can make a Peanut sprite like the 8-bit Mario and do battle against Bino as a boss! :lol:

Anyone know where it is?

I completely forgot about this one!
Yeah, I remember. I like this one.
Kid fox vs. Kid Bino!

This totally has to be a fighter game!

Post Re: Housepets 8-Bit Game
Another idea is follow the same and simple plot of the classic Super Mario, and it's inspired by the story arc number 72.
Fido (Mario) will have to go through various level worlds beating enemies (haven't thought of which kind) and passing obstacles to finally reach Jata (Bowser) ad beat him to free Sabrina (Peach). But, level by level till the penultimate one, instead of Sabrina will found Maxwell (Toad) who will say that our girlfriend ( :o ) is in another Feraga embassy... Keene can take the part of a background character, being like one of those superior commanders that makes combat his slave (Jata), but that once beaten, he miserably give ups to don't receive the same treatment. The Jata beating moment can be made like a beat 'em up game. No Luigi part, also to don't copy every aspect of the Nintendo game.

I have an idea. A beat 'em up style game (like Final Fight, Double Dragon, The Simpsons Arcade, and etc.) with Peanut, Grape, King, and Fido as the playable characters and having Pete, Jata, Celia, and Thomas as some of the bosses.

Post Re: Housepets 8-Bit Game
If you want something simple like the way you suggested, a simple three levels would be nice.

Level-wise, The first level would be Grape avoiding the angry reprecussions of the good old dogs club, with the boss being Bino with Boris and Yeltsin.
Second level would be Peanut running around in his comic. boss would be Cyborg.
Final Level would likely be Karishad and running around the mansion doing random stuff, with the ferrets using the boss platform to combine all their rich schemes against you.

Hey guy's, wouldn't it be weird to have Peanut in an RPG game where he interacts with other webcomic characters?
HAHAHAhahahaha... *hint* *hint*

I prefer Injustice: Dogs Among Us.
It would play out like Hidden in plain sight, where 1 guy plays as Joey at the yarn ball, and the rest have to find him.

I know how to make a classic style game easily! There is a software called Scratch, it is game design for early beginners. As long as you trying not to replicate doom, you should be fine making a game. I already have code for a 2d side scroller.
