Tails Adventure Game Sketches by Piggybank12 Tails Adventure Game Sketches by Piggybank12
At one point, I started playing around with making a point-and-click adventure game starring Tails.  You would be searching around his workshop for parts to build his latest wacky invention while other hijinks ensue.

This was a sketch sheet I made to kinda illustrate ideas for puzzles and situations as I came up with them (such as Rouge hiding in a closet, Cream dealing with a fashion disaster, etc...) as well as ideas for the art direction and character designs.  I was leaning toward a mix between the modern and classic looks, while trying to not make things feel similar to the many other Sonic fan games out there.

The colored Tails seen in the top right is also a fully rigged Flash puppet, so if I ever do get around to animating him, he's good to go.  That's about as far as I got before getting distracted with more important stuff though. :XD:

I volunteer for voice acting Tails!

...okay, that was a little jumpy of the gun, but I'm really interested in helping out on this project. Mind writing up some sample lines for me to work with?

I had already picked someone for voicing Tails when I was working on this, who I've worked with before on other projects and is a good friend of mine.

If I do need some more VAs though for other characters, I'd put out some sort of message about what I'm looking for and some lines for applicants to read.  I won't guarantee I'd be doing that anytime soon though, since I haven't had time lately to work on this and have been keeping it strictly as a for-fun thing, but thank you so much for being interested in this project regardless! :D

Darn it. NEXT TIME! :P

Probably won't stop me from trying, though. I probably won't be as good as your first choice, but that's what an audition's for, right? (Oh, and you're welcome; I'd love to help out anyway I can.)

That may be true, Rouge, but VHS tapes were cheap and easier for the general public to obtain, so stop chastising this little foxboy with your errant shenanigans!

Watch out for that she-bat, Tails.  You know what happened the last time she got too close to you. :lol:

Me too!  My love for point and clicks is why I've wanted to make one for a while now, lol.  Since I've been more of an animator in recent years instead of a programmer, making a game that's more story-focused like a point and click game made sense.

Great to hear you're interested in playing the game as well!  It's actually really cool to see people telling me they would be interested in playing a game like this.  I might have to consider finding a way to come back to this project somehow...

I'd like to see your game made. It's not often that Tails gets his top billing in games. Minus the "Main 3". "Tails' Adventure", "Tails' Skypatrol" and "Tails and the Music Maker". I also like how you gave Amy her classic look. (I find that better than her new/modern looks. She's a HEDGEHOG for Genesis' sake's!!) Will there be fan characters guest starring in the game? Cause I do have 2 fox characters that can maybe help out Tails on his quest. 
And a small critique. If you're going to make the tips of Tails' tails beige/tan, make the rest of his white fur sections that same colorization. That way the eyes won't "scream" in confusion.

Thanks!  I mostly wanted to make a point-and-click Sonic adventure game just to see if I could put the characters in such a slow game, yet still make it work in a very different way.  Tails seemed like a good fit for that, thanks to things like Tails' Adventure establishing him as a slower, yet craftier character.

I'm a sucker for Amy's classic look, lol.  It's much more visually interesting to look at, although I think I like how Sonic the Comic handled her design more than the official one.  Curling her quills back helped a lot to keep her hedgehog look, but also avoid making her look like a pink Sonic wearing a dress. :XD:

As for fan characters, I'm planning to keep it focused on official characters only, and maaaaybe some comic/TV/Boom characters too.  I wanna try to keep it so people who don't know much about Sonic can still find some enjoyment without having to know a lot about the series, but still put in some stuff for people who know a lot about the series too.

That's a good point about coloring the rest of his fur the same way.  I did that so his white gloves wouldn't blend in with the tips of his tails, but maybe I can add a slight orange tint for his white fur instead and just color it all the same way.

Thanks a lot for the information. Shame not a lot of artists draw Amy in her Classic/Sonic CD motif.
As for the idea of coloring the white parts on tails a lighter tint, that's from the old "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" / "SatAM" Sonic days. I miss that design and colorization for him.
