Jeanne Finch: A salesbird who takes up residence in HQ. She can fly around and retrieve junk from all over the world and then sell it to Bob and friends at a semi-reasonable price.

Here's one of the first rooms in the game, with the player confronting some boogeymen. I often use symmetry in map designs but here it's especially important to the game's themes for reasons that will become clearer later on.

Fun fact: Glob's design is based on those pencil grips everyone was crazy about in the early 90's.

Snail Buddy
Gelpoom: A golden mystery snail who works at a shop in HQ, slowly accumulating more goods. The character that most closely resembles me. They're just happy to be along for the ride.

Boogeymen: These figures don't have a final name yet but they're Walthros' equivalent of the Goobles in Kaiju Big Battel: Fighto Fantasy, figures that you encounter on the map to start a battle, sized differently to tell you how tough the fight's going to be.

Glob (First draft): A telekinetic worm from a species that took a different evolutionary path from the rest of Walthros. Glob joins late in the game and can wear different jet packs to use different skill sets.

Bird-Things (First Draft) - Rumor has it that this species comes from off world. They largely keep to themselves but are mostly friendly if you run into them. This particular one seems to be in a sour mood though!

Genie - A summoned monster from the original Walthros who makes a brief cameo here. Inspired by a Ninja Turtle beanbag.

Penguingo (First Draft) - A summoned monster who has appeared in a few different Walthros projects, The Penguingo bumps his big ol' belly into enemies to knock them out.

Squid Bro
Unnamed Squid Summon - A fire-based summoned monster who appears early in the game. Some form of this character sprite has appeared in several Super Walrus Games now, most notably as a coliseum fight in C. Kane.

Ketchup.png
Ketchup - Casual and armored versions. While he was a playable character in the original game, Ketchup plays a very different role this time. Along with his brother Mustard, this agile mouse runs a battle coliseum.

Oh my god I love them. Mustard's outfit makes me especially happy. I cannot wait to see all of these characters in motion.
I can't write in cursive.

Ketchup and Mustard as brothers is absolutely fantastic.

Thanks, I'm glad you like them! Here's Ketchup and Mustard together for scale. One of my favorite things in putting together characters for this game has been mixing differently sized sprites.

Big Frog Bro
Nerru - A frog. Suwanee’s boss at the item shop in Bayswater. He's got some big ideas for getting rich quick, but right now his business is just treading water.

Gus - A Birdthing. This dude was created for a different, long abandoned Walthros remake. He's one of Bob's coworkers and doesn't get involved the game's main story but does live his own interesting life.

Lydia - A cat who works with Bob and Gus at the dig site. Not a fan of her job, but it's work. She and Gus will appear in locations throughout the game and players who track them down can follow their own little story.

Cliftin.png
Suave Seal
WorkCrew.png
Work Bros
Work Crew - Bob, Gus, and Lydia on the job and off.

Cliftin - Seal. Salom’s ex-husband. Neither of them likes to talk about why things fell apart. Encouraged Salom to pursue his showbiz dreams, never really feeling comfortable with his partner’s private investigator job.

This is a character who was mentioned in a few supplemental works but never made it into a game proper. Almost none of the original Walthros characters discussed their family in any way in the other games. The remake places more emphasis on this aspect.

Fun Fact: Both Salom and Cliftin are named for misspellings of local, adjacent towns.

Sombra.PNG
Big Cat Guy
Thanks! One advantage of handling all the graphics myself is I don't have to feel guilty adding dozens and dozens of characters everywhere.

Sombra - A legendary cat warrior who's part cyborg, part vampire, part pirate. He emerges from the shadows in search of treasure and power. Fights with a laser sword. This guy might be trying a little too hard. What's his deal?

I don't know whether Sombra is a villian or just bad tempted, but either way that sprite is full of personality! Lots of great artwork here. Love Cliftin too.

One thing that does bother me about Sombra is that both straps attached to his eyepatch go up, as if it's hanging loose. Normally the straps of an eyepatch would be opposite each other. Or is that not an eye patch?

Shark Progress
Thanks! I will adjust that, but having it hanging loose and not really serving a purpose kind of fits Sombra's character for ways I won't go into yet.

Work in Progress - Here's my first pass at an outline for Lux, a hovering shark that serves as the game's first boss. Yes, sharks are airborne now!! All of the regular enemies for the first area are done so I've just got to finish this guy up and then put together the last cutscene. Edit: Updated with new sprite.

We don't just have airborne sharks, we've got dirt sharks too!!
