Update: COVID-19

SP-Studio hair updateThis is a special update inspired by current events. While I cannot do much expcept for staying at home I want to show my appreciation for all the health care workers, shop clerks, deliverymen and -women who do not have this option. THANK YOU for your hard work! In addition I want to encourage everybody who is not used to it to not feel ashamed for wearing masks in public. Protecting others is the most important thing right now if we want to avoid overloaded hospitals.
So with the help of the Twitch chat I designed ten different masks to wear for your SP-Studio characters in the times of COVID-19. From medical face masks over colorful vogmasks to historcial plaque doctor masks. The simple ninja style mask has custom colors.

I hope this update brings a little bit of joy to you. Stay safe and healthy!

    Ooh, these are very cool!
    Being a frequent hospital guest/visitor myself, I think these are very accurate!
    I also love the brown, full-face mask with a beak. Is that by any chance inspired by what doctors wore in Renessaince Italy?
    Thanks so much!

    I am glad you like it. 🙂
    Yes, this is the “plaque doctor” mask. I am not sure if this particular design was mostly common in Italy, but as far as I know masks in a similar style were popular across Europe during historical epidemics.

    Hey, i’m mainly an iPhone user and i knew you’re going to release a new version of SP-Studio that is more mobile-friendly, but sadly, i heard rumors that you’re planning to redesign the character’s art style and make them more unique.
    I’m sorry, but i personally think you’re making a big mistake, you have a golden opportunity to make the game more mobile-friendly to South Park fans who doesn’t have enough money to buy a computer, since they only have a smartphone, you don’t need to add more South Park stuff on the game if you want, but instead of making an entirely new game, just make a HTML5/JavaScript version of the classic SP-Studio, a lot of South Park fans still use this site and trust me, the official South Park Avatar game sucks, it has less customization and it’s overall weaker compared to your game.
    But i understand if you don’t want to do that, I’m just giving you a suggestion.

    I indeed have plans for a redesign to make the SP-Studio more unique and use my own characters. The problem with the South Park style is that it comes with many limitations due to copyright laws. For example the rules of the Google app store do not allow to publish a mobile game that uses South Park fan art. And this is just a small part of the limitations that come with a fan art project like this.
    BUT no need to worry! 🙂 I am aware of the many fans which visit my website because of South Park. If I will change the character design in the future (which depends on me being satisfied with my own design – which is not the case yet) the South Park version will continue to exist as well. The non-Flash-remake / mobile version I am working on right now is still using the South Park design. So nothing will be lost. As a start the mobile version will work in the browser without an app to avoid any copyright problems in app stores.

    I think you should call the new update Super SP-Studio because it’s more fun and appealing.
    Are you almost finishing the New SP-Studio? I mean, it’s been two years that you’re developing the new version, i hope you launch the New SP-Studio this year prior to December, since flash player is going to be gone for good in this month.
    Also, are you’re going to keep most South Park items?(since you told me that you’re keeping the South Park style)

    “Super SP-Studio” might be my current favorite as well. 🙂
    I will keep all the items for now, South Park or not. So when the new verions launches you will be able to use all the items you know from the old Flash version – and some more.
    If I will publish an additional version of the SP-Studio with my own character design all South Park items and other copyrighted material (logotypes as shirt motifs) will be removed/replaced in this version. But my main focus is on the South Park version because I want ti finish one version because I think about changing the design.
    Regarding the time for the developing process… yes, this inded is a big problem right now. I am struggeling with the coding part because I can not do it alone and so far I only know one person who can help me with this. I hope it will be finished before December, but it is difficult to plan. The money I earned was not enough to hire a coder, so I am very happy about this voluntary help.
