        I'm thankful we haven't been invaded by the Roswell Greys. I don't want to look like a grey version of Slenderman.

        Not the ending I would have wanted, but it did make me want to yell at the screen!

        Are you testing or working on it?

        Testing is working on it, so both.

      Not participating in WoGaDeMo (formerly NaGaDeMo) this year because I'm working on Disney Infinite... kinda sad about that. Be nice to churn out another 30 day game for funsies. The DS RTP pack would be perfect for it.

        Disney Infinite is one of the games I am looking forward to getting. My nieces and nephews are going to have a blast with it.

      If you think you have nothing more to learn, you will never grow or get better. If you think you have a lot to learn, and you're willing to put in the work, you'll accomplish amazing things.

      Working on enemy skills. Making boss battles more than just "Smash weakness repeatedly" is an interesting challenge. EVENTS ONLY WHOOOOO.
      1. Ocedic
        Ocedic
        Indeed. I also find it a slight challenge to make bosses have the right amount of health. Too often bosses can drag on because devs give them tons of HP to make the fight feel 'epic.'

        I am trying to do a similar thing, but as a combo, fight boss, have a event challenge, then fight boss again for the win.

      Creating skill lists for monsters as well as designing boss encounters more elaborate than "smack the weakness."

        Metal Gear Solid flip flops between taking itself seriously and breaking the fourth wall and using self-parodies.

        I like Mother 3 because it takes itself seriously and, at the same time, it does not.

        Kid Icarus made no attempt at a 4th wall but it was still one of the best stories of 2012, in my opinion.

      When discussing your game's story in project threads, PLEASE keep it simple and to the point. I personally am not interested if the Kingdom of Randoko is under turmoil. Just tell me who the protagonist is and what their mission is. Keep it back of the box! If I want to know more I'll play your game. :x

        I remember we had a conversation like this in your old "Game Pitch advice" thread, which unfortunately stirred a lot of animosity :<


        Well needless to say I completely agree with you.

        At the same time, you have to remember that a lot of places (this forum included) have word count limits for projects. Sometimes things are added to meet those limits, rather than the developer over-sharing information. :)

        True. It's more that I'm disappointed when folks share the wrong information, instead of sharing stuff that is more interesting than pandering.

      If you're a hobbyist, rock on and have fun. If you're bringing money into the picture, you must do your best to make the best dayum game you can make and help break the stigma that RPG Maker is a crap engine. We can do great things, let's do this together.
