This is my first time making a dessup game so it's sort of an experiment. You can take snapshots but I request proper credit and a link to the original game. Plus give me a link coz I'm interested in what you can come up with.
I personally do not see Flash games as some sort of children's play, in fact, I believe they can themselves be a form of art-a type of postmodernism, something that is interactive and always changing, and something that defies the traditional one-point-of-view model founded by western art.
Therefore the design and creation of these games should be treated with great care. Some games succeed in that while others don't. I just think this is an interesting point and since I consider myself someone who thinks in the postmodern way I can safely say I enjoy dressup games-well, the nicely-done ones at least-and I'm more than interested in making them.
So here's my very first game guys! I really learned a lot while making it. Even now I still don't know if the loading page will work (since it's impossible to test it on my own computer). But I think it's a good start, gives me an idea of how thick the lines or how saturated the colors should be to increase the visual quality of online Flash games. I'll do better next time.
About the game itself: it features Chinese clothing, hairstyle and accessories through Qin and Han dynasty to the start of the Jin dynasty, which is about 200 BC-300 AD. One thing that makes this different from fashion dressups is that these clothes come in layers.
For example, in order to make a complete outfit you'll need to put on a short top first, followed by a long robe and a shorter diagonal-shaped robe, then adding the final touch by putting on a sash (you can even put on two different type of sashes at the same time) and the decorative strings that hang from the waist.
