After three years of trying, Neokortex finally get a Christmas intro out the door!
This one was started in October 2020, after a none to subtle hint from Fuzion 🙂 The design came pretty quickly, I’ve always liked the Bones Goes Home part of the Predators Megademo from 1989, so thinking I could do that, I got started.
What I forgot is that I can’t draw for shit, so having this grand idea of multiple layers of parallax scrolling wasn’t looking such a great idea. I went for simplicity with the cartoon styling and flat colours. The colour palette leaves a little to be desired, and that little bastard snowman… really loathed drawing it.
And I lost count of how many times I redrew snow, trees, houses, mountains and fucking clouds! Even resorted to asking the wife’s opinion as she’s a little arty farty in that department.
The snow from the intro was supposed to carry over but it kept breaking 50ms drawing limit so skipped that part.
