Thanks for hosting the contest! Gave me an excuse and motivation to learn all the tools. I'll keep working on this project and hopefully polish it up some more!
I didn't get a change to utilize 2D IK or Animation, but that's next on the list after this week. Hopefully I'll be able to keep working on it and get it out there!
I tried to utilize some watercolour style art, but I didn't quite get it right. I'll keep trying and get something working. Also, would've liked to have fiddled with the player character some more. Didn't quite get a chance to change it from its prison architect-esque placeholder art.
I used tutorials from blackthornpod, Brackeys, and a tutorial on Metaballs that required quite a bit of fiddling with. Such great resources.
