When we started working on the game, I drew an enemy and called it “Chimmy”. I guess it was supposed to be a Chimera, but it ended up looking more like a man with no nose and pikachu ears. I guess it would be if Krilling from Dragon Ball and Pikachu had a child. Anyway, one day I was looking over the enemies, and every time I’d stop on Chimmy, I’d say “I can’t fight this thing, it’s just too damn cute.” Larry thought I was crazy and finally I said “I’m going to put him as one of the main characters in the game” and… well, let’s just say I was told it was a bad idea. …
Two days later there was an entire portion of the story dedicated to Chimmy. I draw pictures of him all over the place, and he is currently a very prominent part of my new pop’n controller.
Unfortunately, my friends who are working on the game with me tend to tease me about Chimmy. In fact, they spent one evening thinking of ways for Chimmy to die. I don’t know why they hate him so much. I think he’s extremely adorable. Actually, I think they’re probably just teasing me.
Anyway, without further ado, I’d like to introduce everyone to my buddy, Chimmy.
the first picture is the very first picture I drew of him when I intended him to be one of the enemies. That was the pic I fell in love with for some reason. The second pic is obviously two forms of his sprite (some of you may remember that sprite from the april fools game I made) and the last picture was one of the final character sketches I did for him.
I hope you guys don’t hate him because he’s really nice and loves you all.
