I'm going through icon packs that I got from Humble Bundle. A lot of food icons will be used in my game. I loved the variety in Earthbound. Oct 17, 2019 at 1:51 PM

      I just finished Skyborn. It gave me a good idea of things I might want to consider in my own game. It was shorter than I expected though.

        Overall, it was a bit disappointing in my opinion but far better than a lot of what I've seen in Let's Play videos on YouTube.

        6/10 if the SNES Final Fantasy games are 9 or 10 on the scale.

        I'd give it a C myself. As in, average. Decent story, poor battle system which had no tactics short of make your tank have the highest threat, watch them get KO'd, revive, repeat. At least that is how all late game battles went for me.

      With all the music packs that I splurged on during sales, I'm going to vary by map region the music of encounters and traveling in my game.

        I remember that Final Fantasy VI did this to some extent, and it really added to the ambience of environments during the journey.

      I picked up more music for RPG Maker MV in the golden week sale. My experience in theatre working with sound designers was all for this lol.

      I've started playing Skyborn to see how well a popular RPG Maker game was made. So far, not bad.

        I got it as a gift from a Humble Bundle. It's a decent sample of what RPG Maker can be used for. Not the best I've played but decent overall so far (though I haven't played enough to determine if the game is currently worth its full price if I'd bought it myself). It's also a good case study for what the publisher Degica Games finds acceptable for project submissions.

        I thought the story decent but the battle system awful. Late game it was they KO my tank, I revive them, rinse lather repeat.

      I've been picking out various tracks for my game based on how well they fit themes and whether they might become annoying if looped.
      1. Storyteller-Hero
        Storyteller-Hero
        Sometimes a tracks sounds great at first but then the music adds a sound that seems cool for the first listen, but is too grating or uncomfortable to hear if used repeatedly in the background.

        I find it best to use them as background music while developing. If it starts to great on you, then it's not grate for the game.

      Not having to spank my computer every day to get it working properly is truly a blessing.

        When you spank your computer, does it scream "Harder Daddy!"?

      Picked out theme music for 8/10 of the characters in my first game so far. It's getting me super inspired for the dialogue to be written.

      There are rules of storytelling for good reason: many writers screwed up along the way and developed the rules to screw up less than before.

        I am constantly second-guessing myself as a writer. That is why I am treating my current writings as a rough draft so I can iron out what doesn't work through feedback.

        If you study not just what the rules of storytelling are but also why they exist, you will have the wisdom of the greatest writers in your hands and the confidence that your final draft will never fall below a certain level (maybe not great but never bad). Knowing also helps prevent writer's block since you'll have a more solid foundation to write from.

        For example, the basic rule that conflict (not to be confused with physical violence) is what makes a story interesting - the reader is far more likely to be hooked if you have a good conflict as the basis of your story, because they'll have a legitimate reason to be curious - to see whether change or resistance to change wins out.

        The selection process when I did it was someone saying "if you can think of an excuse, sit over there to be questioned"... I didn't think "I just don't want to be here" would've been a good enough excuse, luckily it was a pretty short trial.

        The particular trial I could have been picked for would have lasted into next month. I can't divulge details, but getting picked would have drastically delayed a lot of plans. Three days of jury selection was already rough - several weeks of actual trial would have been torture for me as someone who does creative writing as an income source.

        It's amazing, I highly recommend it! ^.^ Funny about GENE, I bought that first just because I am using a ton of busts as well. But the instant I saw this fabulous beast, I snagged it up LOL
        I use GENE for other image things (picture menus and such) since the instant drag and drop picture positions is quite useful anyway.

        The setting would remain the same, but I might have to make some drastic changes to the story progression depending on where my imagination takes me in the revision.
