The name for my new game is stupid, but so is the game.
Basically my idea is for 2D sidescroller and 2D top-down view to collide, into a risk/reward dungeon crawler with different items granting you certain abilities or maybe even killing you. You control two differenct characters, Venzi & Hanzi, whom you can switch between to your liking. You start with 3 lives and are occasionally granted XP for clearing stages or losing a hp/xp gamble, in your search for the blackbird. You can use 10 XP to get to the start of your room if you mess up, or spend your hard-earned XP on specific upgrades like more HP or whatever. I just want the game to be filled with a certain degree of RNG, secrets and mystery! Maybe even quests later on.
I've been working on this very on-and-off for a while now. Should be fun to see what I end up with.
Maybe I'll get back to my gaming roots and finish that other game too, Nature Calls.
Who knows. :^)
Forgot to mention that you can only see some stuff as either Venzi or Hanzi, as showed in the screenshots below:

Where do I come from?
I was once an active member on the YoYo Games Forums. I joined in 2009, mostly posting in the general and help forums. I quit when they removed those forums and transferred to the GMC.
What are my game related skills?
Programming has never been my strength. However, I know GML pretty well and I do like the way my pixel art skills are developing. My style is very simplistic and I will keep trying until the colors and style are similar enough to fit in with the rest of my work.
I picked up the electric guitar when I was 12 and had a very strong interest in music writing. I mostly played melodic death metal at the time but lately I've been lightly producing music with FL Studio, sometimes for the lulz, mostly with a high mind. Here is my SoundCloud account.
