The map design for The Creep area of Unearthed has been completed! The Creep is an important area, acting as a crossroads and meeting place for the many denizens of the underworld. It is also a very large area, containing a marketplace, a few small ponds and several crags that can be scaled with some effort. Allies and enemies alike can be found wandering throughout this vast cavern.
Although it was a bit of a pain to complete, I feel that The Creep is one of the strongest areas I’ve created yet. Here’s a preview of the middle of the area, which contains many branching pathways to explore!
This hack is looking really nice. The creep looks great, too. I like the color scheme, and the huge mushrooms look neat.
This is shaping up to be pretty awesome.
So are you going to showcase “Unearthed” at the NCFC?
That depends… what is NCFC?
It’s a Convention for Nintendo Fangames.
That looks really neat! The only problem is that I do not have a playable demo and I am somewhat concerned about the legalities involved. Perhaps I could put together a quick trailer and see if they’ll post that.
Thanks for the heads up!
What legalities would you be concerned about?
A lot of websites are hesitant to host video game roms since the laws surrounding them are very strict. Fangames are generally less restrictive since although you are using copyrighted characters, you are not taking pieces of a company’s “product” and distributing it online.
Regardless, I’ll get in touch with the NCFC folks and see what their take on it is. I would love to have a promotional video for Unearthed up there, or maybe even have HyperBound up as a demo. We’ll see what is viable though…
