Frank’s Day Out will play a little bit like The Secret of Monkey Island crossed with Zelda. In the game you take on the the role of Frank, a guy that owns his own island, but decides to go on an adventure to find a shirt…

With 3D cel-shaded characters and objects designed by illustrator Billy Mather, it will offer players a chance to explore a world full of unique creatures and environments whilst using crazy transports such as the GO-Kopter™.

The intention is to get this game on Kongregate. So far we have basic character models, collision, controls and cameras set up.

Yes, he is rather freaky.

Got a few screenshots of progress. Made a camera that detects whether objects are between camera and player, and if so renders the object transparent:

A screenshot of how this works:

And a screenshot of the placeholder objects in the graphics demo:

There is also a playable graphics demo at 8bitape.net/demos

Any feedback appreciated!

A quick update. There is now a day / night cycle in game with a pretty sunset and sunrise:

This highlights that I need to create some models for the sun and moon, which I am really looking forward to!

Also, a quick glimpse at what the starting area of the game will look like:

Any feedback as always appreciated!

New screens! I’ve worked on the in game renderer quite a bit, as well as the first island, Title Screen and GUI.

So, the basic storyline goes:

Pirates have invaded Frank’s island and have stolen all of his most valuable modern art and designer clothes! Quickly, help Frank catch up with them using the GO-kopter™. But, oh no! Frank has lost the keys! They must be somewhere on the island. Quickly find them so that he can pursue the pirates!

We’ve been working on a vehicle that Frank will get to drive / sail / fly. Thoughts so far?

Well, the GO-Kopter™ is now finished! I hope you like the finished result? I’m really looking forward to getting it flying. Moving between different islands is going to be a whole load of fun! Are there any other vehicles you would like to see in the game? I think a hang-glider and boat might be fun, perhaps a unicycle…
