#5036798 What to write with now?

Posted by on 26 February 2013 - 12:41 PM

Hey thanks for the replies. This is good to hear because I love working with C#, just codes friendlier than C++ in my opinion. Plus I HATE pointers. Anyway even though I can still write with it I cant submit anything to the xbox indie market, so I can develop but not potentially sell. Anything on that?

#5023154 RPG system idea

Thanks for all the input it was helpful. And I was going for more of latent random abilities, not forcing a class on someone or affecting their lvling. My best example is like XCOM: Enemy Unknown where the psionic able characters are random. But in the game I'm making it would be more than just psionics. I just don't want to create a condition where people stop playing because they couldn't get the character they wanted.


That said, it could be interesting to randomly (and secretly) give the character some special power. And then as part of the game, they have to discover it and figure out how to unlock it...


I've always thought this would be an interesting way to structure a rogue-like.


Rather than letting the player choose talents, you randomly assign the character a complete set of talents upon creation, but hide them from the player. Progression is then a matter of discovering and honing your latent talents, which seems like a better analogue for real life...

And ya the last statement is the feel is I was going for


Thanks again everyone
