Hi everyone, got my replies here:

The multiple hod creation myth reminds me somewhat of Hinduism.

Are you able to talk more about the me mechanics of the game? Is it like Pokemon where you capture and battle monsters? I only ask because you mentioned Pokemon at the start.

I'm going to update the page with mechanic details soon. The game seems also will be developed, possibly in XNA. The Creation Myth wasn't based on the Hindu one at all. Dunno how that happened.

I'm planning a game to make. Want details? Hmm, maybe later.

Really do need details about the game itself if you want feedback on it.


With regard the writing only one thing stands out as jarring to me.

>They end our lives, I'll end theirs. How dare they end the life of my son. The human race is dying, and so, I must end Monsterra. I must destroy each and every single one of them. Including the Seven Mythical Monsterra. Goodness knows how I am going to do it without capturing them for my own. So, I will capture them, and finally, kill them. I could sap their powers, that's it! I will build a machine that can sap the powers out of all seven Mythical Monsterra, and use it for my own! I can create a world of my own, make it happen the way I want it, I can be the god of all!

Specifically the motive translation from that of survival/revenge to that of I can be god and do things my way. Don't get me wrong, motives can and do change just not necessarily in a context such as this (an exception to this being if said character is a little off his/her rocker).


Looking forward to more http--,,--//public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png [/url]]

 

That first bit the "I'm planning a game to make. Want details? Hmm, maybe later." Is in my sig. I haven't updated that for a while.

Also, God_Rhythm pretty much answers the writing scheme.

"Specifically the motive translation from that of survival/revenge to that of I can be god and do things my way"

That could work if the main motivation is to attain godlike power in order to bring his son back to life, that creates a nice bridge.

That's sorta the plan.

I like the idea of becoming a god by killing or collecting ALL the enemies to collect up their power. Meh about the creation myth; this kind of myth isn't to my taste. I don't mean creation myths in general, I like them; I mean the way this has a feeling of being haphazard and destined rather than something more logical, orderly, and with realistic motives behind it.

Yeah, the creation myth is still WIP. The thing is, I need to get it just right for some tastes, because it is the intro cut scene in the game. Also, it needs some pretty decent music. huh.pnghttp--,,--//public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/huh.png[/url]] Dunno where I'm gonna get that from.

 

Edit @16:28

 

I'm during up a few concept sketches right now. In paint, it's not much, 'cause I'm no artist, but still.
