[SBX:I] Enemy Art Update


Well lots of artwork has been reworked so far and implemented in the game.  Here is a sample of the first 3 enemy art reworks:

And here are some early pieces of art for Enemy D and E:

Old Vs New Enemy D:

Old vs New Enemy E:  (Boss 1)

We're redoing ALL the artwork so here is a sample of the new Title Screen as well:

We're plodding along but it's coming out very nicely.

Subscribe to the blog for the latest updates and I would say we'll be ready to publish around mid to late October!

So the artwork is getting an overhaul.  I'm working with another pixel artist and here is a teaser of what is to come:

And the new ship, reworked by Cody Rigby the additional artist on the project:

It looks very nice in game and adds a lot of feel to the game.  We'll be reworking every art asset over the next month.

Stay tuned for more info!

[Art] Art Overhaul for SBX:Invasion, also, another large Floran Sprite!


The game is getting pushed back for a bit to accommodate an art overhaul in order to make the game look better.  I'm working with an additional artist now to really polish up some of the graphics and draw more players to the game.

So for now the game is being pushed back and will not come out this Friday.


I have spent some of my free time working on a new Floran Sprite for Starbound and have it for you here!

Here he is 400% size

And here is normal size:

Hope you enjoy the artwork!

Stay tuned for more updates on the art rework to SBX:Invasion soon.

Cheers, WakeskaterX

[WSS] New website Logo and Forums are up and linked to the site.

Wakeskater Studio:

  I redid the main website graphic which was frankly ugly, and now is... well just slightly less ugly.

Here is the older header for the website:

And here is the new header:

Oh it's not the most fabulous header image in the world but it works for now.  At some point I'll probably redo the top image part, I like the buttons for now.

Also the forums are now up and linked to the blog and website!  
You can register at: go sign up and introduce yourself!

Lots of little bug fixes and small things added to the game.  The last big thing is adding the last 3 songs to the custom map creator.  1 is already finished, but I'm just waiting on the last 2 before putting them all in.

That's it for now,
