Pickelninja: Haha "millions of fans and unicorns"..? You should make a game about that!
Agro: Yeah. Kind of like "I wanna be that guy" but even more wierd.
Regarding our "game off": It turns out my friend is a pixel art savant (coming from a creative mind, drawing skills and too many hours building cathedrals and skyscrapers in Minecraft) so I´m now taking charge as Lead programmer and he´s demoted to "artist". Granted, he has 10+ more years programming experience, but good artist are hard to find...
Kidding aside, this has led us from having one unfocused game into two new and different games/WIP that´s far more interesting than what we started out with.
I guess I have to start posting screenshots soon..?
