Not that many, it’s just the year silly.
I’m one animated battler short as I did kinda get distracted recently with preparation for next year. My next target is my spriting speed, now I know I’ve been getting quicker but I’m still not at the speed of getting resources out as fast as I’d like (I’m sure yous would feel the same). Anyway happy Christmas everyone and I hope you get all the pressies yous asked for/demanded.

First up is my little enemy battler the Hobgob – a early enemy in Squaresofts’ Xenogears. I’ve tried to alter the way it attacks to give a more combo flexibility.
With the release of Victors State Graphics for use with his Victor Engine Animated Battlers I felt that one of my battlers, which I’d created for the intent of this effect, needed something else since Victor did a great job of making it so that the effect continues after the battle and the characters graphics are replaced. So Frog Song anyone?
Please note that these aren’t just frogs, they’re intended to be ‘like people’ and also keeping to the character sprite style I’ve been doing. The Faceset below is highly referenced from Final Fantasy VII but in VX(Ace) Style.
I’ve also made a variation to my FF Template and the first batch of sprites to go with.
I’m also still continuing towards completing the Mag collection, again I’m sorry to those that have been asking but all I know is that a script to use these with an animated battler script is being worked upon. I don’t want to mention or pester the person who’s said they’re working on it as I know they do have other commitments. When it’s released you’ll see on the forums and I’ll also let you’s know here or via Twitter.
Well there we go, this’ll be the last update until 2013, I hope yous have all had a great year. I’d like to thank each and everyone of yous for all the support and enthusiasm towards this project. I hope in the year to come I’ll be able to have a much larger collection of battlers and material for yous to use within your games.
Heck who knows, I’ve done 57 animated battlers in two years I hope to smash that total for the end of next year.
Stay safe and have a great new year.
