Here is the base project
This is an action platformer.

The player is the youngest monster in a clan of monsters, sent to gather spell parts for a special spell to be cast at an upcoming festival. To get them you must seek out and defeat a series of tougher monsters and heroes culminating in a boss fight against the scariest monster of all.

The player begins the game at the site of the upcoming Awakening Festival. This is the event at which new monsters are created via a powerful spell cast by the monster wizard Sour. The player was created at the last festival. Sour needs ingredients for the spell and is sending the player to get them from older, scary monsters that don;t want to give them up. The player is scared of the older monsters and doesn't want to go.
Sour summons Tense the ghost to help you on your quest. The two of you journey into the Monster Castle to complete the quest. There are a series of increasingly tougher monsters the player must defeat as well as a few scattered heroes. The player must complete quests to gain new abilities enabling passage into more difficult game areas.
The toughest monsters reside in the castle's dungeon. The player must enter as fully equipped as possible as there is no going back. The final dungeon boss is super difficult and will defeat the player. But some previously defeated enemies revive the player, powering up the player and sending them to battle the dungeon boss again. After defeating the dungeon boss the player receives the final ingredient for Sour's spell.
The player returns and is hailed as the hero of the festival. But when Sour's spell is cast it turns out the dungeon boss monster rigged the ingredient causing the spell to spawn a monstrous demon instead of a baby monster. The player must defeat the spawned demon to save the monster clan. Afterwards, the festival begins again only this time the player helps Sour cast the spell successfully.

more areas to be determined (some inside the castle, some in the castle's dungeon, some will be boss fight areas)
backgrounds - such as the brick background currently being used (need outdoors, castle, and castle dungeon)

I'd be happy to work with you, but know that I'm not professional lol
