Help us populate the streets of London! Be a part of the game!
Send us a pixel character sprite and have it featured in the final release of Sherlock: The Game Is On. You can create a sprite of yourself, your friends, or even your favorite characters or celebrities!
There are only 5 criteria:
1. If you’d like your character to have personalized dialogue, be sure to include their name and backstory in your image’s caption so that we can make their dialogue match their unique personality!
2. Use this website to create a base for your character sprite. After you have your base, you can use an image editing program to customize it any way you like.
3. Make sure your character is dressed in modern clothing (We can’t have characters strolling around London in a full suit of armor!)
4. No supernatural or odd attachments (if your character is wearing something that you wouldn’t normally wear in public (i.e. wings, capes, robes), then you probably want to change your submission)
5. If you’d like your character to appear as a member of the Metropolitan Police force (and possibly even be on DI Lestrade’s Team) please use the outfits we created here:
MALE POLICE OFFICER:
FEMALE POLICE OFFICER:
OFFICIAL CHARACTER SPRITE GENERATOR PROGRAM:
If you’d like even more variety and control, you can download a free trial of RPG Maker Ace and use its built in character generator: http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download
RPG Maker Ace’s character generator allows for a lot more flexibility and customization for color, hairstyles, clothing, and accessories!
If you’d like to try creating a character’s clothing and hair from scratch, check out this very helpful tutorial from Ellenor T.
SPRITE GENERATOR RESOURCES:
If you’d like even more variety for your characters, download Lunara's sprite generator Replacements, Add-Ons, and Clothing packs!
We need more ethnic characters!
Right now the majority of our sprites are the default color. If you send in an ethnic sprite it will have a higher chance of being included in the game. Keep London diverse, guys! :)
EXAMPLE SPRITE SHEET:
When you’re done, your sprite sheet should look like this:
Have fun and upload all sprites to this website: http://dropevent.com/Gallery/send481920
(As soon as your sprite is approved, it will be visible on that page for all fans to see.)
Remember, when you play the game, keep an eye out, because you may just spot your character roaming the streets of London as you solve crimes with the great Sherlock Holmes!
