The very beginning!

I'm just starting out on my game and haven't even started to code yet. But I have an idea and some pixel art to get me started on what looks like a big project! The idea I have is a comedy side scrolling beat'em up spoof of the walking dead game by telltale games! This game is going to have SNES graphics and I need some criticism for the first draft pixel art

Hey JJ, I'm new to game dev as well. It sounds like your project could be successful, however don't go too big too quickly (I did the same thing).

Maybe scale back some of the design aspects and focus on what makes the game interesting to play. 
What is unique about your game idea?

Break the game down into it's core aspects, what do you want the player to experience when they play your game?  What are the core gameplay elements? 

As for the art, it's well executed, if a little simplistic for my taste. I think you could go bolder with the art style and really make something which stands out visually. Maybe make the sprites larger as well as it's difficult to tell what they are at first glance. 

I look forward to chatting with you, and wish you luck on your first project.

Funny art. But I can't really imagine it in motion. Lets us watch some animated gifs when you have a prototype. :)
