Very Cool !!
Those little monsters are awesome! I like the ones with more than one element moving.. the one where it just bobs up and down is not as engaging - but the ones where the eyes wiggle or something else happens, those are great! Your art is beautifully done, such attention to detail. Keep it up!
Thanks for feedback LadyLala. Truth. Not all parties were animated.
These examples are not official. There are other more ridiculous.
The first step was to define the size of sprites. I realized that little monsters do not allow for much variation. Because I use 4 pixels resolution. And at the moment I need of any creatures to do the rest of the game.
I can try to improve the aesthetic later. Because in a game the aesthetic is less important than the fun.
Still, I tried to improve as much as I could just to have more motivation.
Of the 12 principles of animation I used only about 4. It's like the insight 22: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yH63KgAHBM
That is, despite being aware of what could be better, I need stay between what I would really like and what I really can or should do.
It would be different if we did only characters or just animation. And still had two years of experience only in that.
Still, despite the short time and experience I liked the result. Note 6.0 or three stars. kkkMore about the gameAbout the characters
Those arms the idea was this being disproportionate even. It was not to be good, it was to be ridiculous. However, I think it was not ridiculous enough.
Because the idea also is the experiments not always work very well. There is progression as in the conventional games, but there is also involution, virus, diseases, etc.About the cards
There are four elements: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), thymine (T)
You can extract these elements from other criatures. More specifically: nucleic acids, nucleotides, nitrogenous bases and this kind of thing.
The combination of these elements produces a type of creature.
In addition to genetics it is also possible to implant chips. The cards are a kind of chip.
For example, (a spoiler) the game uses voice synthesizer. You can make the creatures speak.
The cards also are like pokeballs. You need of cards to create, save and evoke creatures.About the game purpose
The purpose of this game is to be a Serious Game.
A serious game or applied game is a game designed for a primary purpose other than pure entertainment.The "serious" adjective is generally prepended to refer to products used by industries like defense, education, scientific exploration, health care, emergency management, city planning, engineering, and politics.

Besides the fun you will learn here the basic principles of biotechnology.
But all this in his time.
