This cat-like creature was created during my Fall semester in UK in 2010. There was this assignment to go to the zoo and draw the animals there. The animal you chose had to be later re-created for the animation movement studies.
However, I didn’t go to the zoo that day. I think it was partly because of the weather, also since it was too far and expensive (during my student days) for such a trip. But there was another solution! The place I was staying at was also home for one black cat. What luck!
So after spending some time with that feline, I started to notice that the cat’s body was very flexible. It could stretch and bend so much, that it reminded me of a rubber hose character. That’s when I decided to design Delight’s torso and arms in such abnormal proportions.
Delight always had a somber and kinda sinister feel to me. No wonder though, as at the time of my studies I was starting to feel more and more depressed as I was attending a new university in an unfriendly town. I was also renting a room in a house, which I had to share with a very politically incorrect, or just evil landlady.
This is the last time I drew him/her with a hook-like nails. It’s just not that great animating them.
In 2013 I decided to add Delight’s enemy, White. I think they look good together.
So many possibilites to make a slick battle between them!
Delight is ready to fight.

Delight can soon unleash his/her rage in this 2D on rail beat ’em up game!!
One day a tragedy struck the calm fields of Delight’s home as all the animals started to turn ferocious. From goldfish to giraffes, the previously hunted became the hunters. Even the top of the food chain now prey on it’s own kind. What in the world is causing this insanity? It’s up to Delight to find out.
While Delight is always on the move in this game, you have many ways to control him/her in each level. Delight has forward slash, upward slash, air forward slash, air down slash, grab and throw. You can also make this feline grab branches/vines to climb higher. There are also Hyper moves that you can level up by defeating enemies!
Are you precise enough to sweep everyone in your path?
White is also here to make sure you fail. He has many tricks to keep you on your toes.
There are many different enemies rushing your way so learning the patterns of their attacks is key to staying alive.
There are only 2 people in this project, which means I take the visual part and my friend, Alexander, takes the programming (in Unity engine) part. Though it seems like it’s gonna take forever to complete this, we actually did a lot of work in the past year. All the Delight controls are done (only Hyper moves remain) and level progression elements, so right now we are working mostly on designing levels.
Stay tuned for more updates !!
