Okay , this is my first post here on the community so I'll try to make it simple
So, I'm making a Comic Book right now, but I spend most of time gaming and what I really think is that gaming itself lost its way trought the years , I'm not gonna lie, there's good games , but less than before.... Gaming started to be repetetive and the genre that shows us the most of this repetition is the First Person Shooters. Call of Duty vs Battlefield, the never ending battle, Unreal is dead, I dont believe Halo is going anyware either, Crysis isnt a Multiplayer game, MOH same stuff as unreal, and the list goes on , from the least know to the already listed and popular games.
When I started at first I tought : "I wanna do a new genre", but thats almost impossible, it would take a genious do think of something like that, and Im just not that kind of person, I'm the artist type x).
So my idea: People are complaining that PC is lost on exclusives, people dont want CoD clones, people like competition, but they also like co-op.... Now, I want to join a group of people that are fun to work with, I want to do a creative thing, a unique PC exclusive and bring back gaming.
I don't want to be a lider, dont think about that, I want to work together as a team to create a innovative thing.
For example, What do I like in games :
-Freedom of choice
-Different Endings based on those decisions
-A place where I can explore
-Different aproches to the same story (if anyone has played or see the review of RE6, something like that)
-A good gameplay with great mechanics
-A great story with an awesome voice acting
-I'm an Art guy so, graphics, unique, artist and "realistic in its own way"
- And for last, in single player games, Affection for the characters... the thing that I like the most in Metal Gear Solid.
Now, I now it's a difficult process and it takes time and dedication into it, and believe me, I'm the lazy type x) but, you guys must know "Kickstarter" right?
For those who don't know, it's a website that enables people to fund your projects if they like them, It has kind of a "reward" system that people use (ex: if you give more than 100$/90€ you recieve a limited edition or something)
So I was thinking of using it, it has some disadvantages cause you have to show your project, show something at least.
Just for finish I want to tell you guys about myself...
-Im a portuguese guy, I have 19y, I can say that because It's almost my bday, I'm a comic book artist, I work digital and traditional, try to keep myself doing the two of them, I work 3D, 2D, everything really... I don't have any dreams really, but if I would choose something it would be to work as a Concept Artist.
As for my Comic Book I'll show here on the forum some concepts so you can see some of my works (;
So, whoever is up to this or just want to give me and the future dev's some tips just say something and I'll try to keep in touch.
Thanks in Advance.
