Interested in a Digitally Downloaded game project?

Post by MattS on Mon Aug 12, 2013 4:44 pm

Here's an idea I had. We're all friends on this forum, and most of us are fairly time strapped. I know a few of us who have failed completely to finish those RPG Maker projects.

So would any one be interested in collaborating on a game project? If we got together enough skills (art, programing, music) we could even perhaps consider a Unity game, but if it's just a few of us we could always make a visual novel or RPG Maker game.

If there is interest in participating, comment below along with what you'd be interested in doing for the project!

For me I can do project management, music, story.

I might be able to help with, say the story. Actually making the game is something I can't do, at least. yet. But I'd be happy to help in any way I can.

Good idea. I can help with the writing. I am a writer after all, I went to university for 2 years for writing and now I am taking Digital Cinematography. Everything from story, design or editing. I also have a vast knowledge in most software even though I never worked for a game. Let know if I can be of help.

I'd be interested in seeing where this goes. I haven't spent as much time w/ RPG Maker VX Ace of late as I wish I could, but I know my way around it pretty well by now. I write very little code - I just don't know Ruby all that well. I can make some modifications, and if we're doing it for free - well, there's a lot of really good code snippets out there - and I've got lots of experience plugging those in. Time is however, a big issue for me.

I also have some luck with writing - years of doing it. The mapping I am okay, but not great. Do not put me in charge of creating sprites. hah

I'm a hobbyist music composer, with a backlog of semi-finished tracks for a hypothetical RPG. I'd love to take part!

I also used to like drawing environments, although I haven't had the time to practice that lately

OK, awesome, it looks like the interest is there!

I'll set up a private sub forum so that we can discuss amongst ourselves shortly, but in the meantime - poll time! Visual novel or JRPG?

I'm thinking that a Visual Novel will be a better way for us to all get a collaborative project working quickly, too.

I know from my time with RPG Maker that a single town can take a weekend to design and develop - a longer term goal, perhaps? ;-)

Random other thought - does anyone know Unity, or know if Unity is especially difficult to learn? Perhaps we could go all the way and start up a little development club? ;-)

Yes, and RPG would be a longer term goal. My last roommate was in game development and he used RPG Maker a lot, I know for sure it takes time but it can be done if we went the long term road.

About Unity, it depends how complicated you want to go. There's a free version that gives you some basic stuff to work with and it's not that complicated to learn if you know a little about lightning, psychics, audio or even special effects.

Speak for yourself!
I was able to finish my game Tales of Madness in 30 days, before the trial ended. Emeralds did the most work on the game, since she mastered how to use the RPG Maker very quickly
This is just a demo video of the finish game.

We're already working on Tales of Madness 2, with even more sillyness into the mix, and it's almost done~

I dabbled in unity for a while, but it does require some decent commitment to use well. The best I could make was a few interconnected rooms, and that took me days

Hm. Perhaps a long term work in progress, then Razz

So, we doing a visual novel? I'll get that private sub forum set up!

I personally prefer game development to visual novel, but am down for either. Sadly I know nothing about Unity whatsoever.

I may have to nab that in some point in the near future. I've started... so many games. Just never finish them. I think I just bite off a bigger project than I should. I remember one game, back on RPG Maker XP, where the gameplay was already at more than 8 hours - pretty beefy for an RPG Maker project, and it still a ways to go. Not even sure why I quit working on it - I think I just burned out, honestly.

so - what are we thinking topic-wise for this project, Matt? Any framework notions - software, story direction, etc?
