Rayman Fangame: Mr. Dark’s Last Stand.

Post by Ray2005 »

Hi! New member here! First time submitting a forum, if I did something wrong, let me know!



This is for my (hopefully upcoming…) Rayman fangame: Mr. Dark’s Last Stand! A 2D Rayman fangame that uses sprites from Rayman 3 GBA, Raving Rabbids GBA and the like. The story will be revealed at a later date.

This fangame started production in February/early March, it stars Rayman (who would’ve thunk it) and a new character I’m nervous about revealing in fear of getting mocked.


The secondary character joining him is my character (for better or worse). I’ll pull up some sprites I edited from RRR GBA.


I know what you’re thinking: She looks like Dixie Kong! Well, this is because I wanted to reference her in some way as Dixie is my all-time favorite video game character. Even if it’s dumb, I love this girl all the same.


Anyways, I made this also in search of help for my fangame, I use GDevelop to make it and so far…it’s a hassle. I never coded in my life so this was my best bet. If asking for help making the game is prohibited, please let me know.

Aside from that, I hope to make friends here! Sorry if I screwed up in any way.

Welcome to RaymanPC! :D

I like those edited sprites! How are you getting on with GDevelop? Have you a test level you could show, or anything like that?

Asking for help is fine. The more you show, the more people will be inclined to get involved!

Also, I suggest editing the topic title to include the name of your game since there are a few different fangame projects here ;)

Good luck!

Ah! Thanks for the info! I’ll be sure to do that!

Sadly as of now, I barely have a test level completed as GDevelop doesn’t works when some things are set (like the animations for jumping/hovering for example).


As for the sprites, I spent months ripping Rayman’s from VBA as there weren’t any completed sheets for him from R3 GBA out there. As for my character, hers were edits of the Raving Rabbids GBA sheet, with a mix of DK: King of Swing and DKC2/DKC3. I’m not finished with her yet since I have a few more sets to go.

Aw don't be shy, I love the idea! Nice sprites too. :winkgrin: Welcome to the RPC also!

Though I'm curious if the newcomer gal is a helper or a playable character. (What's her name by the way?)

Hello, nice to see a new face on the forum! Have you introduced yourself in the Members Forum yet? It's a good way to get to know the great folks here. I'm ChronicTraitor btw.

As for your post I don't see anything wrong with the format of it, it's totally fine. Sometimes I ramble big text walls and it doesn't seem to be a problem. At least I hope it's not, haha :lol:

You're braver than me posting something you've made here, I'd say. Your character's not a dumb idea at all, she's adorable. Looks like a great new friend for Rayman! I'm all for some kind of teamwork mechanic or whatever the case may be. I loved the GBA games myself so I'm definitely looking forward to wherever your fangame goes!

Meet Reesie: Rayman’s Partner for Mr. Dark’s Last Stand!

Post by Ray2005 »

Hey howdy hey! If you wanted to learn more about Rayman’s partner, here is the place!


This ponytail whirling girl is Reesie! Not only is she his partner for the game, but they’re also together, basically they’re married!


They share the same abilities except Reesie is slightly weaker than Rayman, her flight isn’t as long for example.


Together, the pair of limbless adventurers must rescue their adopted son, Jimmy (a Teensie) from Mr. Dark who took him hostage in order to lure Rayman and destroy him!


Anyhow, I hope you like her!

To answer your question, this gal here is Rayman’s partner and girlfriend (or wife in this case? This is where I’d get called cringe idk) Her name is Reesie! I figured it makes sense as both their names start with R. She’s a secondary playable character! Think of it like Diddy and Dixie Kong from DKC2.

So many welcomes! This honestly makes me really happy!

I’ll be sure to introduce myself in the members forum soon!

Also, a lot of people who I know say that she’s adorable, especially since she’s partnered up with Rayman here!

And thank you! I appreciate the support for Mr. Dark’s Last Stand!

Ah no problem. I'm glad you're feeling welcome here already! :winkgrin:

So it'll have two functioning as one (or separately) like DKC2, then?
That'd be interesting to see in action!

I've seen all sorts of takes on Raygirls over the years and each one is different from the other. I wouldn't call it cringe at all, just a different view! Besides, even Ubisoft themselves gave Rayman a girlfriend/wife in two different games!

I'll try to stay posted on your game, too. I really enjoy seeing what Rayman fans can do! Maybe I should try my hand at the whole fangame thing someday to see what I can do...

This here is the only screenshot of progress I got. The events tab only has the condition “at the beginning of the scene”. Glitches when previewing the game like Rayman falling through the floor (even though has gravity set to zero and the test tile set as a platform) and animations won’t play at all like his jump, run or Helicopter Hair. I still have yet to dabble in his attacking sets.


If needed, I can even send the game file for anybody who’s a GDevelop user here.

The earlier/cancelled prototype of Rabbids 1 gave him a girlfriend in the concept art phase, like Crash said earlier, and Rayman Origins' Vita port has that silly background story unlockable where his wife (a different character altogether, mind you) tries to cut his new hair. They're not really what I'd call canon I guess but they did exist at some point.

Nice! I am curious about pictures of your actual game - I started making my own Rayman 2D platformer literally last week! - and I like Reesie! Because you are making 'your' game, I think - Reesie is a sort of stand-in for you, no? That will make the game closer to your heart, make you feel more invested in it, and that can only be a good thing. :)

EDIT: Oh, many posts were made between me writing this when there were still zero comments, and me remembering to hit 'Submit' before going to bed. :P

How does GDevelop work? Is it convenient? I simply decided to use GameMaker, because why not. :)

Actually yes, she is a stand in! That’s what got me invested to begin with!

As for the software, it is convenient when need be, it requires no coding whatsoever. But I may move back GameMaker to learn how to code. However I’m still very worried I’ll screw up.


Thankfully I have almost all of Rayman and Reesie’s sprites saved in 100 folders? I lost count. Still got some animations I gotta make from using the Redesigner custom skins.

Mr. Dark will keep his appearance from Rayman 1, however the final battle will change it up a bit, not gonna say what exactly as to not spoil (this also applies for possible helpers for MDLS).

This is definitely not canon, as I mentioned here before: viewtopic.php?p=1369591#p1369591
The community also mostly agreed that it was not a true origin story:

Indeed, we haven't bothered to turn on post review since Record Day in 2021, but maybe we should turn it back on with this latest surge in activity!

Also, Ray2005, double-posting is discouraged. You can quote multiple people by scrolling down to the "topic review" section when typing your message, and pressing the quote buttons there ;)
