So you want to do something? How about we design a game, and maybe mock up some screens and possibly even get something working. I have been looking at diy game creation programs recently and thought it may be an interesting diversion, something that a lot of people could pool some ideas on. Sound interesting? Our game can be completely fictional, allowing us to go crazy or we can ground it in reality and actually get a working engine running.

A list of affordable creation software, which could be feasable if this takes off. Some of the programs even allow an online game to be designed. It could be as graphically simple as old school Zelda or as complex as a ps1 title.

Ideas, suggestions?

1. The game must have custom character creation.

Well if were using a rigid game designing tool, then we need a genre, don't we?

Action rpg, or is that too complex? I find shootemup games to allow for some quality action and simple design, but if people want to do more, then that's cool too.

Maybe we should start small,like HC mentionned...a simple shooter or a puzzle type game maybe? or a point and click type game,something story driven that we could apply to a simple RPG later on...do we want it dark,something like Max Payne for example or something more cheerful,with some comedy?....lots of things we can brainstorm if interested...

So do you guys think we should actually get something working rather than a theoretical game? I'm all for that. We should make it AT themed in some way.

As for the mood, why not make it dark and with comedy? beigebigeek.gif

I think this would be an awesome idea. I'm hoping to have a new computer by the end of this month so I'll be doing some research on some of those programs in the following days. A dark comedy thats AT themed sounds like the perfect match to me. Like Bender says, "Comedy is dead. Now tragedy, thats funny!" But yeah we should also start laying down some ground work too on what we would expect to see. Character customization I think is a good one. I would like to see some sort of cameo from AT members in the game or better yet they could be part of the story! haha

You know a shooter done the right way can prove for some great fun, but why not mix it up a bit? Very seldom do people ever try a Shooter-RPG. In a multi-player mode the more kills you get with specific guns and such offer you more exp, and also depending on the level of the other player. I believe we could make a shooter work excellently with an AT theme had we wanted to make a single player mode as well.

A new recruit into the AT army, You have just been AT certified, but prove your worth to the tribe, many tribes along the outside have grown considerably. Work your way through the ranks. Become a Paragorn, of (if attainable throught regular means) an Arbiter Caste and lead members of the tribe into battle against other tribes. Weird thought, but who knows. It's AT themed, it's a shooter, which i am told is what AT was formed from, and add a roleplaying mode to it, you got yourself a game no one dares to try.

We could also do it arcade style, something like Smash TV. beigelaugh.gif

Here's a quick mock up I did for how this might look.

I think the mock-up says it all.

Besides, who says action games can't have an amazing story and characters to boot?

if we're gonna work on something, itd be cool if we could play it togeather, I.E. online

maybe some kind of simple, sprite-based RPG, we could even give people custom sprites.

such things come to mind as ragnarok online, but more with futuristic setting, like fallout II ect. heh a cyberpunk theme would be boss. a nice departure from ghosts and goblins.

just some thoughts heh
