RGSS3 Map section copy - From Game Making Drive February 2014

Posted by Zeriab in Zeriab's Thoughts, 16 March 2014 · 170 views

Hello there wizard, and welcome to my first blog entry.

During the last Game Making Drive (February 2014) I worked on a script which with an event command copies a section of another map onto the currently played map.
Being too lazy to tidy it up and release a proper script my entry about it is so others can use and build upon it should they want to.

One-Month Challenge Update

Posted by Bloodmorphed in My Bloody Blog, 21 August 2014 · 173 views

Well, things are going.. good (HAHAHA NOT!)

But no, seriously, they really are going okay for now. My database is completely done, other then the stats on armor and stuff. But animations are done, I'm missing key items for quests. But I decided to do those when I need them. For example you would be collecting a monster head, or something like that.

Ultimate Challenge Day 3 - Making Sprites Come Alive

game development

Three years ago, I made the somewhat impulsive decision to write a 50,000 word novella for NaNoWriMo . And then, I made sure to 'brag' to as many people as possible that I was doing it.

Why? So I would actually be motivated to finish the darn thing. Imagine the embarrassment if your friends turned to you and said, "Oy. So did you actually finish the book...

The Meta-Gaming Issue

Posted by Tai_MT in Tai_MT's Blog, 18 August 2014 · 273 views

It's definitely been a while since my last update. I've honestly been doing a lot of gaming lately in order to complete as much of my gaming library as possibly before Destiny is released on September 9th. It's going well, for sure, but it's leaving very little room for actual work on my game.

That's not to say all work has been halted on the project....

'Tis about 1am in Finland. Hadn't realized this before I looked over my shoulder to where Tsuzuya was located. Or at least where I thought she was located. Seems like she's had enough of my "coming soon hun" and went to bed without me.

Don't blame her though, been sitting in front of the screen for a good few hours now. Since I got...

Why (most) free to play schemes are a very, very bad thing for gamers and game makers

Posted by Galenmereth in Galenmereth's Musings, 04 August 2014 · 419 views

This is a controversial topic, and there's a million voices that have made themselves heard on it already. But I'll add one now, after a lot of contemplation, reflection, and experience. I have given the model the benefit of the doubt for years now, and these are my findings.

Many gamers are of the mindset that F2P is good. It lets them try a game for fr...

On the Mechanical Ability to Detect Location of Game Objectives

Posted by EvilEagles in Tieris Illia, 03 August 2014 · 257 views
design

Most of the modern AAA games I’ve played and seen lately (Thief, Dishonored, Amazing Spiderman 2, etc.) seem to have this particular trend in common, where the protagonist has a specifically-acquired inhuman ability to “sense” the locations of the game’ objectives. Not anything of any special type (like metal, crystals, whatever). Just, the game’s objecti...

Structuring the customization section

This is from an archived post containing my response to PK8's topic about handholding in scripting: http://forums.rpgmak...g-in-scripting/

As I see it makes sense to split into two concepts that
Focus on how to structure the customization section in a way that it easier for the end users to customize.

RNG Rant - Examples of Giving RNG a Purpose

RNG Rant: Examples of giving RNG a purpose

I've gone into lengthy essays about the flaws of the implementation of some of Disgaea 4 and Ni No Kuni's features. Features that were so reliant on RNG that it frustrates the player and detracts from the overall game experience. I felt compelled to talk about those two examples specifically because they were fa...

On making and releasing The Vendor (in ~28 days)

So I thought I'd write this up while the whole experience is still fresh in my memory. Although a lot of the people who might end up reading this have themselves participated in the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest, I figured it might be interesting to read another persons' feelings on the matter.

Progress Update 5

Ha!

Done.

It was a long, hard slog, but at long last the game is completed and uploaded.

I don't even know what to say at this stage. I could go into some long decription of how I got to this stage, but really, all I want to do is sit back and bask in my own satisfaction (Until someone plays the game and tells me of a game breaking bug... then I might...

Bad Historical Research Translates Into Bad Writting

Posted by Jay_NOLA in Jay_NOLA's Blog, 09 June 2014 · 158 views

I was reading last night a modern sci fi novel set in the 1930s and have been amazed at how poorly written it is.

One of the huge problems is that the author keeps having characters refer to things that didn't exist when the novel takes place and numerous historical errors that show up.

We have for example a character mention DNA in a conversation with...

Hi, everyone!

I took some gameplay snippets from the OMORI demo and put together an OMORI Gameplay video; it’s the happiest and cutest side from OMORI but the best horror games start out the happiest, don’t they? ^o^/

Sudden Random Inspiration For Evented Title I guess a day off calls for a first blog entry :)

Okay, so usually when a RPG Maker game starts the first thing that pops in front of your eyes is the title screen. It gives players choices how they decide to go about their gaming experience. Then people got tired of that and decided to have splash screens so they'd be able to add stuff before the boring...

Clue Collecting: Solvable Puzzles For the Whole Family

Posted by Needle in Preemptive Strike, 09 May 2014 · 90 views

One of the biggest issues I come across in home brewed RPGs, as well as some commercial and high-profile releases, is the dreaded hand-holding debate. Namely, points such as these:
How much direction is too much direction?
How little direction is not enough direction?
Is there enough information for the player to figure out their next objective?
Is the pr...

The official thread for the game is now open HERE . Please post your feedback there - I've got no problems with other people seeing critiques of my games and having them in one place may help people confirm or disagree with what other have said.

I've gotten great feedback so far: if something sucks, and you can tell me why it sucks, thats awesome sauce!...

All The Old Heroes

All The Old Heroes Let’s talk a bit about elderly heroes, shall we?
(Sketch concept for Bellatrix. When I’m through, this picture will be fully colored like Vorpal's, and will replace Bellatrix's portrait in the game.)
In the world of Superheroes, we often find elderly or mature characters mainly in the periphery. Most heroes are young, vibrant, or on the tender side o...

Attack on Tita-...RTP

RTP, RPGMaker, Attacks

Allow me to start with something I think: although RTP can signal a bad game, if the first screenshot you see has proper grammar, the game probably isn’t that bad. Yeah. RTP is old to some people, but to some it’s their first time seeing it. Just because you’ve seen a lot of the default graphics doesn’t mean you should skip past the game. This might seem...
