Characters:

Tina
Image
Age: 15
Adjective: Spunky
Tina is a direction-less teenager. She has convinced her parents to send her to Camp Renard, an artist camp. But first she has to decide if she wants to play guitar or draw.

James
Image
Age: 15
Adjective: Dreamy
James is a prince in the making. He is still a little awkward, but his heart is warm and affectionate.

Dale
Image
Age: 18
Adjective: Jazzy
Dale is one of the camp counselors and is also the lifeguard. He likes sitting by the campfire and playing guitar.

Chris
Image
Age: 14
Adjective: Adventurous
Chris is all about the outdoor adventures. He is not so good at keeping the camp rules.

I now have a VERY LAME version of the game.

I have all the coding elements in place and just need to put in story, art, sound, and music.

I will be posting the code later. The power flickered in my house so I moved to my laptop for websurfing.

@lastmousestanding Thanks! Ill be contacting you later.

I cobbled together some placeholder sprites for the major characters using "Manga Clip Art". I'm too embarrassed to post them. :oops: I coloured them but my colouring skills are a bit lacking.

Those T-shirts are sweet.
Does anyone (camp organizers) wear 'em in-game?
Or are they more of a merchandising thing? :b

Also, I meant to say this earlier, but your watercolor backgrounds are AWESOME. There's just something about seeing traditional mediums on a computer screen (and vice versa... computer art looks lovely on printed media to me). If I may ask... what size did you work at on paper for those?
