Body parts

01 August 2013 - 09:36 AM

So am currently mucking around with a rough concept with Dragonsoulj for a platformer game where the player literally uses parts of themselves as tools in order to progress through the levels for example: A player might tear out an eye and toss it in a direction to gain a viewpoint opening up a fog of war or extract their intestines for use as a rope to climb up a high section. Of course being only initial inceptions everything is up in the air as to how we fully approach this...for example do we incorporate a frankenstein approach by where you scavenge further body parts to attach to yourself or utilise as tools, can you only carry a certain amount of body parts in which case selecting the right ones might make navigating a level easier or perhaps as you progress through each level you scavenge your own body parts using them up as you push through endeavouring to make it to the other end.


What ever we ultimately end up with I don't know...it's still early days. But the reason I am writing this post is to ask you for the following:


In what ways could you make use of your own body parts to create tools or interactable elements that might serve you in a navigating a platformer? Be creative...be outrageous (but clean).


Should I detach a leg and an eyeball and play golf?  I look forward to your responses.

Placing a cap on the number of downvotes that can be done on a post.

23 July 2013 - 07:23 AM

I would like to suggest that downvotes on a post be locked once having achieved an arbitrary number eg: -10. A number this low should clearly delineate that there is something wrong with the post but at the same time it stops the effect of literally having the reputation of a person savaged to the point of removing what might have taken years to build up in good posts.

Post a Random Sample of your work

15 July 2013 - 08:58 AM

So earlier this evening I was talking with a gentlemen who basically made me realise that despite having been on this site for 18 months or so I have never really posted a piece of my writing which got me to thinking that I hadn't really seen many other's writings either. So here is the thread to do so. Throw a small sample in...it doesn't need to be complete, it can be on any subject but it should be sufficiently large enough to give a taste of your style. Think of it as a way to demonstrate your ability and advertise yourself in a public forum filled with people ready to cut you to shreds on the smallest typo. By way of demonstration here is an opening of mine to a piece I am currently working on 





In the hours of loneliest night

I set down these words by the lamp’s light

For I wish to record a most wonderful tale

Of a prince and a princess and the dragon’s scale


It all began on a cold winter’s night

When a little village awoke in fright

At the horrible sound of some beast’s roar

Then all fell silent and they slept once more


It wasn’t till dawn when they found they horse

Half eaten up that they knew the source

The manner of beast which in the night did wail

For lying on the ground was a dragon’s scale


It was large as a cartwheel and made of gold

And when it was lifted took three men to hold

Laughter broke out and they all capered around

But amidst the excitement an old man frowned


Stop this foolishness the man cried to the crowd

Waiting for silence before speaking out loud

‘Tis an evil gift evil indeed

For dragon’s gold fills a heart with greed


You all know the legends and what they tell

Look not at the gold or deeper the spell

We must take it away before we are lost

And only evil into our hearts has crossed


I fear not this spell spoke a stranger from the side

I fear nothing at all ‘cept my soon-to-be bride

And if you allow me I would buy your scale

For it pleases me with its yellow so pale


The crowd turned as the stranger’s voice spoke

And saw a young man in threadbare cloak

Who are you asked the old man his eyes ablaze

That treads forward a fool where a wise man stays


Who am I you ask in a voice that demands

Why I’m Prince Kiranon from far distant lands

Searching the world for the one I’ll marry

Going on where a wise man would tarry


Then Kiranon removed his threadbare cloak

Causing the old man to near have a stroke

For revealed to all was armour and sword

Of such quality befitting a lord


“You said night twice.”


“You ended with night twice. It’s right at the beginning and it breaks the story straight away.”

“You do realise my young prince, and not withstanding that it is way past your bed time, that writing is either best done in solitude or in collaboration with other writers and never...ever with a critic peering down in judgement over one’s shoulder right at the moment of its creation?”

“But isn’t it better to fix up your mistakes straight away to avoid repeating them?”

 “Mistakes! Get out! Get out before I call the guards to return you to your bed.”

The young prince pulled back to the doorway. “You also ended with ‘cloak’ twice” and closed the door.




Hope you liked it and I look forward to others who also step in with submissions

Giving away 4 x RPG Maker VX Ace to those who would use it

14 July 2013 - 02:34 AM

Well Steam summer sale is on and I thought to myself I would buy the RPG Maker VX Ace x 4 pack for an unexpected random giveaway to some members of Gamedev. Now whilst it is not everyone's cup of tea I have no doubt some may find it interesting, useful and maybe ...just maybe someone will actually use it to create a game.


So here is the deal.


If you want a copy for legitimate reasons then please elucidate away.


The requirements: you must be on Steam and one of the four who receives the pack will have to hive off the three copies to other parties.
