Scripting Tests 3.0

In my previous post I mentioned that I wanted to make a Flash Game and had started learning ActionScript 3.0 in order to accomplish that. These were only made to test the application of what ActionScript I have learned so far, so please forgive how ugly they look.

 This test above is just to make sure that I can have a player control the avatar via
keyboard, and make the avatar animate and move through a world.

 This test is to show that I can have the avatar move along a bumpy
surface if need be and calculate things like falling acceleration.

Action-Script 3.0

Concept for a game, hover your cursor over the picture

Special thanks to Rebecca Deakin for sparing the time to show
me how to get .swf files hosted on the internet

I have recently begun learning ActionScript 3.0. The Flash piece below is just intended as concept for a game I would like to animate and programme. I need to admit that this particular piece was scripted in ActionScript 2.0, so that I could get a little practice before I got hold of the later version of ActionScript, but so far using ActionScript 3.0 I have successfully scripted tests that include:

>Moving a character left and right via keyboard, and adjusting the background accordingly
>Loading and/or unloading extra characters when the player reaches a certain point  
>Making a character walk over uneven ground or fall to it, without sinking into it

which I will upload here soon, although they will have no aesthetic consideration in them as they are only scripting tests in preparation for making the main game.

     I am excited to announce that I am working on my final year film. Below are the character designs, I want to digitally paint the backgrounds, the backgrounds in these images have just been pulled off the internet for now just to give the two characters their context. The story's synopsis is that Matt the hiker accidentally falls to his death, but the Grim Reaper is late getting there, leaving his unbeknownst soul alone and vulnerable in a twilight version of the world as he knew it.
