  1. I had such a damn good laugh!! and this inevitably reminds me of... Alien Shooter lols for those who live in a cavern: in alien shooter there is a mode where you stand still in a small map and mobs start running into you and you just keep shooting, they get stronger and they drop stronger weps. well, that one was really fun, and I seriously think that an mmo like this one could work lol! EDIT: Quote:Original post by Hollower Obligatory: Progress Quest Eight years and still running. [disturbed] lol I checked it xD and I thought this post was funny... The fact that some people really do have some lvl80ishes there shows that there is indeed some potential in this sort of MMOs xD [Edited by - kirai on June 15, 2009 4:07:14 PM]
  2. Question about main character

    I find stories which end with the main's death great. but you know what's even greater? The main guy disappears without leaving a trace. Seriously, aren't you guys tired of these happy endings? how many games already end with the realm being saved or the enemy getting sealed or the prince getting married ( :P at the last one). I like games with sad endings, it's a real change. But for those who can't stand it, there is always the alternative of the hero disappearing, remember the exile in KOTOR? That's one epic ending. And about the name. I prefer leaving the name as it is and not giving the player a chance to change it. Let's put a story about good Vs bad in a fantasy realm with elves and orcs and stuff. I wonder if you would find a "1337 H4X" there :P ok that was an exagerated example, but I think that if you wrote a story about one mistic universe of elves and dwarfs and whatever, you would want the name of the main dude to be something fitting. If your main is a prince, I don't think it would be nice to see a dialogue with "By the mighty gods! What are you doing there alone, prince Hashlubasaka?" (believe it or no, that's the sort of names I come up with when I create a character xD) I think it is important to give the player some freedom, but the player needs to be guided a bit too, otherwise he might blow up a nice part of that univers you put so mucheffort to make.
  3. Need advice

    Here is a little story: Am a 20 years old student, and working in the video games biz have always been my dream. So I checked a bit around the net and I found out that, in order to get a job, I had to get myself a portfolio and a some notoriety in the game development world. So I have been writing stories to work out my skills (I love writing, my family got some literature fans, and they are contagious, thankfully) and I am working right now on a game using RPGMaker VX, very easy to use and doesn't need a big knowledge in programming languages. So well, I might sound like I got a plan or something, but there is a little problem blocking my way, I live in Tunisia, and there are no developers or publishers around this country. So am just asking for some advices if anyone have been through such a situation or if you just got anything to tell to an amateur writer ^^
  4. Personality, personality, PERSONALITY. I got tired of these stupid games where the main guy is like so cool so nice so light-side-of-the-forceand and the vilain is like me-am-bAd seriously the best game I ever played had 4 main characters: a girl who fears death, a girl who is bullyed by her classmates, a girl who says 2 jokes in every line and the main character..... WHO DOESNT HAVE A PERSONALITY yeah, hes like the lost guy in the nowehre, living just becuase he got to live, nothing on his mind, hes happy.... believe me, its the profile of the perfect boring guy, but its thanks to those 3 girls around him that you feel his emptyness and, more importantly, his desire to be something, if there is something that main characters need, its the other-character-who-will-make-your-main-shine. ie: in a game where the main guy is the dark-wise-intelligent guy, you will need something like a character who never stops talking, who yells and screams for nothing and who does remind me of these gangasta guys all wrapped in golden chains and stuff. it shows how much the main character is wise and darky compared to this one, and most importantly, makes players (hardcores or kids or whatever) say stuff like "this one is my favourite, hes soo funny" "this one is so saad... just like me" I think that having a character that sounds like ppl is just great or makes ppl thik of themselves is just great
