Hello again all, and welcome to 2014
!! Better late than never I suppose. Last Wednesday was the mark of the new year, the Wednesday before that was Christmas. It's been 2 weeks since I've posted anything. Over the break I looked into taking some art workshops and began vigorously filling up my sketchbook... but not quite enough yet to be able to say much of anything meaningful about art. A gift I received from my uncle inspired some of this entry. He got me a starter deck for Magic: The Gathering. After learning the basics of the game (sort of), I stopped by at the local comic book store to see how expensive cards/booster decks were. I walked out with $40 in cards and played 3 or 4 games with other customers. I entered Friday Night Magic... and was the first one out. Anyway, to connect with my previous entry, I began asking among my friends if anyone played. Somehow, merely asking about the game will get you inducted into a secret underground society of other players, not just from my school, but from all local schools. Having enjoyed the game so much despite having picked it up so recently, I thought to myself: "wouldn't it be cool if I made an RPG in the form of trading cards?" Thus birthed the concept of my own card game: (Insert Title Here).
(Insert Title Here) will be placed in a semi-ordinary world in which card games will be the equivalent of online gaming. Players will be able to create their own decks using the many cards I will create (art workshops coming into play). The game will have a story mode, a quick play mode, and a very basic LAN multiplayer battle system (until I learn enough about networking to be able to expand upon that).
The game will be indefinitely free along with any/all extra content as this game is more designed to build myself a portfolio and to get feedback. This will be an ongoing project with no current estimated time of release. Suggested features are more than welcome. Thanks for reading and have a lovely January!
