Just finished the storyboard for the comic "cutscenes" for my game, Capsized
. Obviously very rough, but I want to see if you guys can read them alright.
Each cutscene happens at the start of each level (as a loading screen), and some at the end of levels (as a stat screen). I'll try to explain what the player is doing in the level between cutscenes so you folks can get the gist of the flow.
Spoilered roughs for V scroll
MAKE SURE TO READ THE TEXT BETWEEN THE IMAGES OR ELSE YOU WILL GET CONFUSED!
For those who haven't seen it, here's how the story kicks off:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4_S-U8VodA
A tutorial level giving the player a chance to experiment with the controls. Player has to reach the end of the level.
Player must reach the end of the level, where they discover an abandoned escape pod.
Player enters an alien village to find his crewmate inside.
Not good results.
Player must search the level and destroy a number of alien statues that are interfering with the signal.
Player must rescue 3 captured crewmates.
Player must kill all tribals in the level, including 3 minibosses.
Player enters alien ruins and must reach the end of the level.
Player must find his way out of the alien ruins to the surface.
Player must drag 3 machine parts back to his crewmates.
Player must collect all the power cells in the level.
Player must destroy all the alien statues in the level
Player must destroy the two alien bosses
If you really want to help me out, write out what you think is happening in each cutscene. I'll see how close you guys are and what doesn't make sense.
