I want to recreate the battle system from Monster rancher Battle card, using Personas from the Shim Megami Tensei series as the monsters.
What's the best way to go about this? I have working knowledge of Unity and GameMaker, but I'm not sure which is best for card games. And I'm more of a coder, so I'll need to find someone else to do art for me.
A Game Dev blog is another thing. Starting a tumblr is simple, but is that really a useful way to blog about game development? would Wordpress or Blogger or LiveJournal be better for this sort of thing?
Also, am I going to run into Legal issues? Does this sound like something that's ok to publish this as long as I don't make money from it? or is it just 100% "Cease and Desist" material?
