We've learned in English classes that it is "nicer" in formal English to not create contractions. I will go home <-> I'll go home.

That plant's in the way <-> That plant is in the way


Maybe you native speakers can help me here - what is better for game texts (is this "formal" or "informal" for interface texts) ?


@ Redd
that pose he has in the screenshot ... it looks a bit ... like he was uhmm... under pressure ;)

Edit: that "pinky" has his tongue out does not make things better ...

Maybe he should need to bend his arms a bit more so that the under arms move "horizontal" visually instead of diagonally leading to this... misunderstandability.

Another visual bug: watch his left foot - is Redd disabled?

Contractions are more usual for games, but in this case I think "That plant is in the way" sounds better because it sounds more like a nuisance (Redd seems irritated) because of formal use.  Also, because "That plant's in the way" looks too much like "That plants in the way" - which is incorrect as there is only one.

As Redd has a straw I think he could handle that.


@ strawberry
That white looks a bit ... too bright in my opinion - maybe t is just the area being too big. It looks a bit like a "mask" (see "goombas" in Super Mario).

Looking good! I think you change Redd's walking animation so that his arm's swing by his side and have the idle animation with his arms crossed, but only if you have time :)
