Monster Boy shows another one of its hand-drawn characters
Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
FDG Entertainment had some big news for Monster Boy last week. The game is seeing a graphical overhaul with reworked characters and animations. Monster Boy implemented hand-drawn characters since the last time we saw it.
Today, FDG revealed the next redone character in a blog post. Our first look at the new version of the frog is above.
Here’s what FDG had to say about the change:
As you can see, the proportions of the frog are now different. With the new freedom of entirely hand-drawn animation we are not dependent on an overarching skeleton/puppet system anymore which means we can let him do really cool stunts. Swinging rings and using the tongue will now look much more dynamic. He’s also looking more like a frog than before which adds a lot to the visual variety while playing Monster Boy. We hope you like the new look!
Thanks to HerosShade for the tip.
