I was looking forward to it and then it just seemed to die.

Boxbot makes a terrible enemy.

That said, he looks too happy to be Boxbot. Are you sure it's not actually Robox? Robox is awesome.

In a slight diversion to the topic: Yeah, for the time being. I sort of lost interest at some point and never got back to it. One day I may release a second episode or something.

Boxbot? Robox? Might've known those had already been taken by something. :P

Vaecrius: I ran with your idea a little bit - I liked the idea of a punctuation mark enemy so I made this. :D

He will of course still spit out periods and ellipses, (a bit like the Ophidian, I guess - a volley of severla normal shots (periods) followed by one more powerful (ellipsis)).

I'm thinking perhaps... Irregular Polygonatrons - deformed polygons that are pretty much well, deformed. They take their imperfectly shaped rage out on you because you are Square and they are not.

I'm just bouncing ideas off the proverbial wall but, can anyone make the dodecahedron from The Phantom Tollbooth as an instructor/boss/enemy?

I'm not good at this perspective lark. Could someone give me a hand with this?

Do you have any additional concept art for it? Also, is your guy gloved or not gloved? I could give it a quick go at it.

Sorry, I hardly ever draw up concepts for new sprites. :P I just open up PSP and let my imagination (and cursor) go wild.

Basically it's meant to be a silly cartoony paintball gun, not dissimilar to the one shown here on the loading screen for Lemmings Paintball. I look at the original now and realize that my attempt was pretty terrible, not to mention unfaithful to what I had in mind. That stupid conductor-type thing poking out the front should definitely go, for one thing. It's not a sci-fi B-movie laser gun.

Square is not gloved... but nor does he really even have any anatomically accurate "hands" to speak of. He's basically a purple square with matchstick appendages. To be honest, though, I think I might just give him some cartoony white Mickey Mouse gloves anyway. Do what you want with his hands. :)

Alright, cool cool. I'll try to whip something up for you.

Here's a quick drawing I did in 10 minutes in MSPaint. I used one of the Doomguy hands from the master hand sprite sheet as a base and eyeballed it, adding in the shading and whatnot here and there.

Cool stuff. :D Shape-wise that's pretty much what I was aiming for, but perhaps it needs to be more rounded? (That's where my lack of knowledge of perspective bites me - I was trying to make the whole thing out of lines and circles.)

Would be cool if some sort of ammo clip, and the "hammer" (as shown on the Lemmings gun) could be visible, as well. Let me see what I can do with this. :)

On top of the gun needing to be rounded, it also needs the shading too which I forgot to add in.

Alrighty, here's what I've ended up with. :)

Thanks a load for the help, lizardcommando. Any thought on this? :P

Now I've gotta think about how I'm going to animate this. To be honest, all the other weapons in Square's arsenal are really cheaply animated.
