Check out my post! I've written out a pretty detailed back story and justification for my galaxy's aliens.
On another note, I need to come up with names for things. Planets, colonies, what these various populations call themselves, stars and systems, ships, governments, gah. so Many names. One of the more important ones is likely to be the title of the game, so if you want to play the lotto, you guys could help me come up with names and maybe yours will be the one that ends up naming the game too.
So I've been getting out in the creative side of the forum and been getting some really good feed back, I'm really happy to see that. Thank you guys.
Some of my plot ideas are coming together, more on that later in the writing forum when its a bit more firm. Been having a great discussion in Prinz Eugn's journal about realistic limitations of weapons and sensors on spacecraft. Very stimulating stuff and it currently has me plowing through a physics junky fix searching for the key to faster that light travel. So far I have two windows each full of tabs open. One is a huge amount of spaceship art, and the other is a Wikipedia walk through mad scientist physics.
[extract]So I didn't see a place just to say, "Hi, I'm new here, but hey, this is me." So hi! I'm new here, and this is me.
I'm going to publish a game.
I said it, I guess I could delete it and pretend I didn't, but I'm not.
I am going to publish a game. And I have 267 days to do it. [/extract] Kinda odd right? 267 days, not 268 or 365.
267. See, my life hasn't been what I wanted. I've worked jobs I didn't want. I've gone back to school for jobs that didn't work out. I don't want to crawl back into that. So I'm not going to.
I'm going to do what I've wanted to do for many years now. I'm going to make a game.
I don't expect it to be easy, or for it to make me rich. I'm not Bioware or Blizzard. I'm one guy, and I'm picking my battles and planning a path I can finish. I will need help finding that path, but thats why I'm here.
267. And it's counting down. In 46 minutes it will be 266, I'd better get moving.
