Dreamscape is a 2D fighting game created by Carnegie Mellon's Game Creation Society. The game takes place in a dreamworld and features a cast of surreal characters fighting to claim the crown of King of Dreams.
My responsibility on the project was creating one of these characters, bringing it from initial concept to final animation.
I wanted to take advantage of the open-ended setting of the game and make a character that was non-traditional for the fighting genre. I created Zycoticon; a mech-style robot with small, un-identified pilot floating in the cockpit. I created the initial art assets in Flash and designed his move set and style. I then used Dreamscape's custom animation software to animate the motion.
