      Putting movie references in without directly breaking immersion by the movie title is my kind of awesome. Heh... Currently sitting on 2.

        Or, make up a move title, which is a take on a popular title. Now playing, the Where the Red Xyliqo Grows!

        Then perhaps worth considering a game idea where mapping will be minimal, like perhaps a story that happens within a small cluster of maps of the same area, or something like that.

        Unfortunately I alreary committed to this Legion Saga remake. And I will not be a dev with a series of failed games!

        Makes sense. Perhaps that's something to consider for future projects. ;)

      *grumbles at MV and how it calculates pixels and offsets things weirdly with Time Fantasy* So... VX Ace or RM2k3... lol

        I'll have to talk to someone and see about it. It offsets the pixels mostly because TF for MV is done x3. So events are completely offset so you can use the tilesets in events... and the player is shifted. You can't just shift the character set over neither because it changes from map to map off they are offset! *facepalm*

      I want to see more of what other people have done with Time Fantasy. Everyone uses things in different ways. It is really amazing!

        I have been posting them here and there. I've only updated 3 maps of my game to TF so I haven't worried about it that much. I should update my game thread with the new maps.

      Title Updated from Long Time RM Lurker to Wannabe Game Dev. I felt since I am just a few months shy of 2 years I am no longer a lurker.

      Put myself back five steps in development but the new direction/focus is pretty good.

      As I suspected May was not a productive month for me on Legion Saga. I just have to remember that Gamemaking is the Tortoise not the Rabbit.

      Every once in awhile I get the urge to do a fan game... especially Suikoden... then I remind myself "No." That's it.

        Honestly I can't between wanting to have a large-ish roster like Suikoden or not. It's tough to balance and also harder to develop characters. I mean it might make sense in my case of rebels taking back a country when I could have a small squadron of their elite. Think Rogue One.

        A fair number of fan games end up spiritual successors anyways.

        Nothing wrong with that. Heck, nothing wrong with a fangame, honestly. I mean, when it turns into a 9-year monstrosity, maybe one needs to rethink their priorities, but emulating mechanics from another game can be very enlightening, and give you unique ideas for your own work. I have one as a personal side project.

    Credit for my Avatar goes to Dani Oliver on Twitter. I borrowed it off the internet and do not intend to claim it any other way.

    Let's just say I have an obsession with gaming and leave it at that. I currently heavily involved in the SCA learning Heavy Fighter Combat and spending my remaining free time when not work at my full time job on RPG Maker. Someday I am going to release that game of my dre... Nevermind. I'll just stick to having fun with it.

    I've only been involved with the release of a single game called A Most Inconvenient Evening which was for a game jam called Winterruption. My current project has been underway for almost a year though I have changed art directions 3 times and the game engine twice which has definitely slowed my progress but I am very happy with the current state of things. I continue to push forward on the path to completion!

    Hopefully we will cross paths and make/play/discuss great games together!

    I'll see you around, game makers!
