I'm dreaming too high?

Recommended Posts

i used to be hardcore player of dark souls, i played every game of the series except for demons souls cause i don't own a ps3, although i would love to play it

but at the same time i hate playing ds3 i just feel like it took so many wrong turns such as ruining poise and making magic not track properly that the game disgusts me beyond redemption

i played bloodborne and nioh for some time and the extra rpgs elements such as runes and set bonuses they added sure felt like what was missing from the game

every time i play one of these games i hate the patch notes i hate the developers and i cannot help but think how great these game would be if only they did it the way i wanted

and this is what motivated me to start learning about game design but it ddn't take long until i realized how hard it would be to do one of these games

i'm dreaming too high is making a souls-like game alone too hard for a single person?

what is the difference?

If you make the game, it should be somehow playable in the end. If you design the game, you can pitch it to some company in which case the game still needs to be made.

Well who is going to actually create your game? Do you intend to do everything on your own or only the design phase in which case all the remaining phases need to be done by some 3th party.

Well ideally they pay you as a designer instead of the other way around :P

Okay, so you're saying you will not only design it but make it too. (That answers the "make or design?" question.)

Since you are asking if it's too hard, it probably is. You have to learn how to program, you have to create graphics and sound, and you have to spend the years of effort to make it happen.
