Backstory and Art Style

We are going to be totally creative here and come up with the following unique story for our game.

Bob, our protagonist, suffers from chronic jumperitis. He is doomed to jump every time he touches the ground. Even worse, his beloved princess, which shall remain nameless, was kidnapped by an evil army of flying killer squirrels and placed in a castle in the sky.

Bob's condition proves beneficial after all, and he begins the hunt for his loved one, battling the evil squirrel forces.

Bob's condition proves beneficial after all, and he begins the hunt for his loved one, battling the evil squirrel forces.

This classic video game story lends itself well to an 8-bit graphics style that can be found in games such as the original Super Mario Brothers on the NES. The mock-up in Figure 9-1 shows the final game graphics for all the elements of our game. Bob, coins, squirrels, and pulverized platforms are of course animated. We'll also use music and sound effects that fit our visual style.
