Hi everyone!

I just was bored so I created a little, not to complex giraffe (see picture). But now I have an object I also need a level or something... does anyone have some idea's? Post them here :D

First I thought of someting like this:
You grab the head of the giraffe and therefore the giraffe panics. So it runs away and *boom*, he collides again an elephant. So the elephant gets angry and attacks you etc.
Sounds crazy, isn't it? :p
So do you have some better idea's post hem please.


Oh I just forgot the picture:

wouties, you did nice animal! Level with animals can be very different - maybe there must be more different animals and there is some sort of jungle and adventure in it (but in this case you must draw additional animals, that will take a time). or you can create level only with one animal and use its specific abilities - such as long neck (for arriving on high platform and mading bridge across rivers and gorges and so on) - to use animals as you help for completing some tasks on level. There are many way to use it, IMHO.

If you've heard of Team Ico's next game "That Last Guardian" you could do something similar to that, where you basically have a large animal companion throughout the entire level. As Domik said you could use the Giraffe as an aid to reaching high places and maybe even fending off enemies.

Otherwise you wouldn't need to focus on the giraffe. Just make an African Safari with animals in the background (giraffes, elephants, zebras, lions) and maybe you'd even have to make your way past a sleeping lion and not wake them up or something.

Possibly a Zoo level?

Like SirPaper said, a "The Last Guardian" type of level where you control a creature and use it to explore the environment would be interesting.
