Very early in the development phase to be announcing the game! But I'm guessing you have a lot of the design fleshed out?

I love art as well, very cool.

Looks incredible!!

Are you sure he needs to roll all time?
IMO he should roll like sonic, only when you use the command...you know, to roll and go faster.
But it's just an opinion xD

But anyway, awesome, this little dragon is the kind of characters that could become Ouya's mascot =)

lol about the rolling thing, the game was originally tough for mobile devices where the dragon rolls with the accelerometer (tilting the phone, tablet, etc.) and that did had sense in those devices. we are still debating if should we find something else or leave it as it is, our priority is to make the game fun to look and play! thats for sure!

Man leave it as it is! I think it's awesome! It sets it apart from other games :)

I was thinking the same about the roll.

If he/she mainly walked/run and had a roll as an avoiding move.

Just an idea. Game is looking cool already though. :)

+1 on the rolling issue. Another animation would be nice here

But the game looks really nice added it to my personal "looking forward to ouya games" list!
Graphics strongly reminds me of the Super Mario Series, I think the engine has potential for more games on ouya!

looks cool, looking forward!

seems like a hybrid od Sonic and Super Mario 3D, with art designed inspired by Okami.

i really love to see all the opinions about the roll of the dragon and both opinions have very strong reasons to be, good thing is we will be working soon in character movement and ill upload the animations of the character as soon as i have them just to check your opinion guys! thank you for the feedback!!!

And we really love to see you listen to the feedback =)
If this game succeeds as I think it will, I'm allready giving the idea to make some spinoffs. Dragon Kart? Mayb a crossover with another Ouya character still to be created? Dragon Maze & ______ in Adventures on Machu Pichu(somethin like that kkkkkk), mayb a cameo on another game? Dragon Maze RPG? Dragon Maze Soccer? Dragon Maze Golf?
This little fella has a gigantic potential to be developed, make sure you use it. He is like Chocobo+Sonic+Mario =).

My bets are on you =)

Man Joker, you are really keen on finding a Mascot for the OUYA. Some consoles can survive without one you know, look at the PS and Xbox (unless you call Spyro/Crash and Master Chief Mascot, I don't)

since this post has been very active ill post this before time, this is the graphics we have at the moment for dragon maze, it is a huge diference from the prototype video, there is still a lot of work to do but ill share this with you guys anyway! hope you like it! (ouya still allow us to pump the graphics a bit more and that is what we are going to do)

Oh my XD I need to play this as soon as possible *_*

I think the dragon should be a bit more yellow, to combine with the colorful enviroment =)
Mayb the colors from your avatar? He looks to much sandy in the screenshot .-.

Also, why he has horns in the middle of his head in-game, and in the concept art he has two on each side of his head? O.o

FelineArts

nice observation!, this image is old, the dragon is being modeled again to match the concept, this one was modeled fast to test game mechanics, the new dragon is looking amazing :D, this dragon with the horns in the middle is also in the alpha video.

I really like how it looks so far, good use of slopes and physics for what I can see in the video.

Keep at it!

01-15-2013, 08:26 PM
wow it really looks great.
The graphics really reminds me of the mario series...you could totally create the "ouya dragon" mascot!
I strongly agree:

Dragon Maze RPG? Dragon Maze Soccer? Dragon Maze Golf?

I will buy the game, quite positive!!

Will you be ready for launch?

FelineArts
02-08-2013, 06:05 PM
we dont think it will be available when ouya launches for several reasons, our estimated finish date is May, it wish it could be done in april but i dont think so, honestly, ill be updating the progress here anyway. but i can tell what that extra month will be perfect for the game, we think it is going great and we will have a video to share soon!

Looks great but I think the dragon should run and roll to get up slopes/tackle enemies etc. Looking forward to seeing more :)

Good luck with it!

Maybe start a new thread to advertise...and probably not the best to say here but spread the word everywhere else too ;)

(by the way I do not want to tell you what to do but a personal message from the developers in the video would be cool...I really think it makes more people pledge who arrived your site)

we did one but our english is ultra bad! we decided to put just the trailer! its true! xD, just for this forum ill leave the link of how the new movement looks, the dragon does not just roll anymore, it looks like we are far behind but we are more advanced than how this looks

Awww... I wanted him to run on all fours ;)

Looking good though, I like the Sonic style spin attack/speed boost

I don't use Steam, maybe some of you do. Today I saw this link on their Facebook page: this is the game I find most promising for Ouya, will you help it come out on Steam? :)

Wow, this is from way before I signed up, but it looks well crafted. Is it still coming to OUYA?

Yes, it seems it still is. Just read this article (http://felinearts.net/DMPresskit/) very carefully :)
