Long Time, New Project

I won't go into why it's been so long.  On to more interesting things.  An artist friend at work was talking about old-school videogame characters that seem to get no love nowadays. She particularly mentioned fan-art in artist alley.

She mentioned Pit from Kid Icarus and I was hit with a wave of nostalgia for that game. It was one of the few games I was totally engrossed in as a kid. I made maps for the dungeons and it was one of the few I actually finished.

I realized I needed to make a Kid Icarus clone. I don't want to run afoul of copyright so I'm making it my own thing, but it will definitely capture the vertical scroller, zelda-esque dungeons, upgradeable equipment that made Kid Icarus a blast.

Only mine will be set in Norse Mythology and you'll play as a kid valkyrie.  Which leads to my first stab at the lead character. She might be Skuld, or I may decide on another name.  She definitely needs more refinement but I'm excited about this.
