Sorry it’s been so long since the last update, but here’s some updates:
In other news related to my game, the first round of game testing for the project has started. I’m sure my game will get a poor review, but I’m close to having a fun, complete game.
I pitched my game idea in class, but my teacher said I’d have to scale it back. Instead of a full town-dungeon level I’m going to have to just do the dungeon and basic fighting, no boss. Well, I can always expand on it over summer.
I’v noticed that nobody has commented on my posts. Don’t feel shy, you can do it. I set up the Disqus account for that very reason. I didn’t want people to have to follow me and wait two weeks before they could comment, which by the way is a stupid feature in my opinion.
Look, I know that most people on this site just like or reblog posts, but that’s not what I’m looking for. I’m looking for input on my game. The whole purpose of this blog is to get feedback on my ideas and see which people like and which they don’t.
It’s very easy, and you don’t have to do that much work. All you have to do is type 1 or 2 in the comment box and press post. You don’t even have to log in to Disqus. Come on, help me out. Please. I need this for a class. Well, I’m starting this as for a class and hope to make it a long term portfolio piece, but for now I need this for a class.
While I’m waiting on more input for the plot of the game I’ll work on the one element they would have most in common: monsters. Well, technically they would be enemies, because many RPGs have common animals as enemies or other humans or humanoid creatures (e.g. elves) and monsters has such a negative connotation. The one thing I’m sure I’m going to have in either game would be a slime-creature. Probably the best know of these would be the Slime creature from the Dragon Quest/Warrior series. To avoid any possible legal issues I’m going to use my own designs.
I designed this one for the iPhone project I mentioned in my previous post. I was going for something slightly different, but at the same time in keeping with simplicity of slime-based creatures found in other games.
This design I created specifically for this project. I was trying to create a view of the other slime from the front, but the shape that resulted from reshaping a circle looking interesting so I decided to build on that.
Before I decide anything else about my game, I have to figure out what it’s going to be about. Here are a two ideas I have based on work I’ve already done:
I already know one thing for sure, whichever game I pick, the storyline and dialog will openly mock and parody the conventions of the RPG genre. That’s just the kind of humor I like. I await your input.
This blog has a two fold purpose: to fulfill a requirement for a class project and to create an RPG as a portfolio piece. In my various posts I will be asking for opinions on the development and design of the game I am creating. My intention is to post various ideas I have and get input from the public about which they like better. When enough time has passed or I have gotten sufficient results, I will continue on with the development using the most popular idea. I do not currently intend to take suggestions outside of what I post, but I am not opposed to taking them.
