The only way I could see this improved is if 1) they were birds and 2) they interacted with the actual windows. Very cool though, brought back a buncha childhood memories!

I have no idea how you did the transparent bg for unity but this is glorious. You should add a few more bits and pieces and chuck it on steam or somethin! If you can generate the creatures at run time and programmatically add the faces that would be awesome too! (Cos I recall you said you selected your favorites from the generator and added the faces manually)


The transparent overlay is from
Generating the creatures with LookingGlass AI takes maybe 20 minutes to make 25, so it's pretty slow. It's also kind of ??? as to what will happen, so it takes a certain amount of trial and error. I probably generated 600 or so and took 300ish that I liked. I also had to manually erase all their backgrounds and slap faces on most of them.  It would be cool if they could be made 'live' but probably wouldn't work as is.

I have made a thing in the past where you could draw creatures on your phone and they would appear live in the game, maybe I could merge that with this...
