    I hope to see my game alive

    Well said. Would be the best way to truly make the game great.

    Yes that is true, but the dynamics of the game on how it plays and the setting is still the fundamental aspect I believe that will make it shine most.

    I agree, the graphics should not be the main source as the gameplay and story is what will drive players getting more into the game as the graphics are more just icing on the cake.

    I'd focus on both the graphics and gameplay as in 50/50 but I'd also in the beginning put more into the storyline first, being the big premise of the game that will wheel gamers in cause that imo is a good basis to keep someone interested in playing the game and that should help give you ideas on how the gameplay will develop, based on the stories direction.
  5. This is definitely good. I'd be interested in music/sound effects that provide suspenseful/horror themes.
  6. I think your game has potential, it also depends what you are trying to put into it.Whether it be over the top stylish, photo realistic may need to work differently. I guess you could take some old concepts from how they did Star Wars Rebel Assault as within the realm of Doom and Wolfenstein3D if that helps at all.

    Character ideas for my fighting game

    That is a good idea. Although my plans were to keep my characters modernized, maybe a modern version could work. Unless I decide to fit a samurai story-wise from the past, that may be a possibility.
  8. You know what the funny thing is, that's what gave me the idea when I thought up nurse and doctor. Sub Zero and Frost dual was my inspiration for them! Same with the idea with prisoner with chains/shackles but I didn't think it would be scary enough at first. I thought of electricity but I rather save thst for someone else. But what you just mentioned does sound pretty scary . The more scary and entertaining the better for fans to enjoy I say.
  9. Those all sound like potential. I really appreciate it. I would probably animate the snowman with a sort of shapeshift moveset depending if I want him rush downing or keep you at a distance. A lot of my characters will be over the top anyway but rich backstories do help. Maybe I can connect some of their stories to each other, like snowman and scarecrow, prisoner and clown maybe, etc. Doctor and nurse would most likely obviously have a good interacting background.
  10. Yes, i want them scary but also have some sort of deadly fighting training that makes sense story-wise so they are seen more than just a regular scarecrow, snowman, prisoner, clown, etc.

    That would be a good reference for me to look into. As long as the martial art style fits the characters I'm creating since a lot of my characters are basically bizarre horror tropes.
  12. Well I did have them planned for my indie style game so yes you are right about freedom to create them how I want, however I also plan on adding them to my other game which is a more serious game. Even though it's still fictional, these characters will have a deeper backstory and that's why I want characters like the snowman and scarecrow to be more in depth and how they are capable of fighting. Think Mortal Kombat, though characters are unrealistic, they still have a logic on their existence and how they are able to fight.

    Character ideas for my fighting game

    Thanks for your help, that does sound good. I actually had an idea for a chainsaw wielding character, maybe I can connect him and the clown story wise together? Some of my characters may sound a little exaggerated and silly like a snowman and scarecrow. I was thinking of maybe changing the snowman to another ice themed character so it could be taken more serious, do you know movies that are good for inspiration? Thanks again for the advice.

    It's something I could consider, thanks for the advise. So what you mean is list my character ideas down then the movies and try to connect each character to that type of movie narrative backstory? I appreciate your help, thanks.
