Fell In Love With This

Really enjoyed the fun vibe and snippets of dialogue that add some real charm to this. The music is wonderful, and the sounds and movement while singing (and the audience reactions!) are a nice treat. One of these days I'll crack that Roulette Forest stage...

Nice work, hubol! :)

The sounds are incredible- the music is so fun and I loved the singing section. The animations are simple but incredibly effective and expressive. Such a fun take on the Tom Bombadil idea. I was worried about having too vague a request list so I'm glad something wonderful came out of it.

What engine is this?

This is mostly a custom engine I have been building for other projects. But it is using PixiJS to render.

You can see the source code here: https://github.com/hubol/hoppin-tom !!!
