  • I'm -mostly- happy with how my first short title is coming together. So long as I don't get stuck I should be able to make a project thread next month. ^_^

    Nice! I'll be looking for it 4 days from now... :p Good luck!
    Well, since it's so warm and no snow... I can't make snow werewolves tonight (Full Moon). I'll just have to settle for a happy family get together and a nice family Christmas movie (Nightmare before Christmas). Merry Christmas everyone!

    I used to love that film. I still remember when we got it on VHS all those years ago.

    When I was like 12, I used to build "Snow Demons" (w/ horns, pitchforks, all that). My mother was alwayz getting on to me for this hahaha (she never made me tear them down tho) :)
    I don't know how to 'grow up more'. Just got told by a 60-ish year old man that I'm immature. Apparently he sat in on my lecture to some 9th and 10th grade students.

    Haha, thanks GrandmaDeb. :) . It helped that I was in a good mood after the lecture, even if those silly kids don't know how to ask questions.

    I bet you have small children? Almost all adults that can't be bothered by appearances to the point that strangers will point it out to them are raising small children.

    I do have a small child, with the energy of many children. The gentleman actually never commented on my clothing (Long sleeve button down, purple shirt and dress pants ^_^). I was just taking a jab for the sake of it. My hair though... yeah. That's usually the first negative thing I hear from the workforce around his age "You'll never get anywhere looking like a girl/hippy/etc." I've gotten plenty far, still going too ;)
    So, on Friday I bought nearly all of the DLC on the store. 15 minutes ago, I finished downloading it.

    If we're going that route. I'd rather get a fleet of pigeons with 3.5 floppy disks.


    I will prepare the bread in the yard for their arrival feast.

    @Zortik - forget speed, I would rather it be delivered by the cute girl option. :p

    ISPs in the US have no real competition and will always suck until Google operates their broadband in the area.


    A couple years ago in Africa they tested a brand new internet connection. It took a Carrier Pidgeon less time to deliver a 64 GB flash drive over 60 miles than it took the new internet connection to deliver the same amount of data at the same distance.
    Few... okay, I need to stop for a minute and actually accomplish something. Really overwhelmed right now.

    I'm thinking the first thing I should finish is building my domain + website. Maybe with a goal of middle of next week.

    I feel like I'm overwhelmed sometimes as well. I suck with photoshop but I can try to at least do something so it doesn't seem like I'm not accomplishing as much. I might want to buy an Ipad Pro or a Cintiq to be honest.
    Excluding just the anime DLC. I just purchased every single DLC on the store page. My wife's requirements: "Make a short game, like 1-3 hours long, every couple months with each different pack." A little daunting... but enticing.

    Now the real challenge is to secretly work on an epic 60 hour RPG on the side.

    Also, if you were to sell those tiny games, I can see them making a great bundle deal. I've played one of your games before, you're pretty good at making them.

    I'm working on:


    1 major rework (you played the original)


    1 new project (massive long term)


    1 project recruitment


    1 tiny short.


    Dinner.


    Thanks for the compliment :) . It would be a dream come true if I could make any income from game making. My current career pays the bills, but working on games is what I'm passionate about.
    I think Project Manager / Producer is the role I enjoy most for video game design. I love the other elements, but I am not passionate about them to develop those skillsets.

    Mapping... ...game mechanics... ...graphical editing... is my forte (if I have one). Sound production my greatest weakness

    I too would love to be self sufficient. However, I enjoy motivating people with those already developed skill sets to work together and create something magnificent that I couldn't have done on my own.
    Natural

    @Zortik I understand. I think the biggest issue that I would have with partnerships is possibly not getting an equal cut or the other person not putting in enough time on it. Not sure what the average time people spend on their game everyday. Also the game might not ever finish too.
    This Christmas will be a full moon :) Who would like to sneak around with me and transform snowmen into snow-werewolves?

    That is awesome!

    If we have sufficient snow for a snowman. I'll take a picture of me doing at least one of them. I think I might buy a cheap mask or something with a huge neck/head hole. Then just mold the face in there and tweak it after I take it off. We'll see. :)

    You should win an award, because I'm thrilled to see a picture of this.


    I liked to Calvin and Hobbes peoples snow men, or yards, back when I had time to pull allnighters out of the house haha.
    Hah... responding to a topic made me remember that I sent in a copy of my ps1 rpgmaker game to someone at AgeTec. I was 15 at the time and a rep actually got back in touch with me.

    14 slots for Sytem? Incredible! I never played Shadow Tower or Clock Tower II, but I hear CT 2 was great. Ahhh fighter maker...even more confusing that RPG Maker. The best I did was make the fighters contort into pretzels at rapid speed :) )
    Zortik
    Zortik
    Fighter Maker was just silly for me. I didn't get into that much either, but me and 2 friends made those same oddball fighting moves for laughs. Actually... I never grew up from this. I still make the strangest things in any fighting games where you can make your own character. As for the system data, yeah huge. My event data was on a 4x memory card. 55 slots total there.

    Clock Tower 2 was a fun game. I was always on the edge of my seat trying to hide from Scissor Man. It got pretty brutal towards the end if I remember right.
    As the new year is coming to a close, I can smile that I only have another 11 years of student loan debt :D

    I feel the same way (6.75 years to go here).
    Neato! The project team I am working with was just recognized as one of the top 4 most transformative projects of the year. Also number one in customer satisfaction!

    impossible amount of jelly here.. LOL

    Thanks :)


    No need to be jelly though. It's a corporate internal acknowledgement. I can use it for my end of year review but that's about it ^_^.

    it is still something to be proud of XD enjoy!
    I think I'm going to make a menu for my family. Would make planning meals easier and it'll help them pick what they want to eat.
    Would anyone be interested in playing a 4-6 hour demo (RPG VX) with the intent of telling me what they liked / didn't like about the game? I'd like some constructive feedback for what needs improvement before I rebuild it in MV.
    TheGamedawg
    TheGamedawg
    I'd like to try! Send me the demo over a message if you're interested.
    A huge thank you to Sinweaver for doing a stunning job with expanding on the IconSet for RPGMaker MV. Really really awesome work, check out his thread in the resources section!
    What would be more useful... blog posts where the community can lend a hand with brainstorming? Or starting a very early project thread? Thoughts?

    brainstorming?
    Zortik
    Zortik
    Yup. Lots of ways to handle a brainstorming session. An example would be where I suggest "I want to have some form of reputation grinding in my game. Here is what I think I can do..." Then the other participants share their thoughts with everyone focusing on reaching the objective of having reputation grinding accounted for. Or, coming up with a better alternative even.
    I love Les Miserables. I play the broadway soundtrack every so often when I need a boost but also need to focus on work.

    Ahhh I love Les Mis <3 That along with Miss Saigon and so many other broadway musicals! It's great to hear theres other broadway lovers here :)

    I'm a fan too! My husband is a HUGE fan, mostly because he loves the book though. We saw them on Broadway Across America a while back, definitely recommend it!
    Zortik
    Zortik
    :D Hooray. Other people that like Les Mis.


    Since I posted this status... I'm not listening to "Turning" right after Javier's suicide. Since I've listened to this so much it makes excellent background sound. Although a few songs steal my attention still :3
    I highly approve of your Jareth avatar.

    <3 I interchange between this one and Willow. I originally tried to set up my avatar as david bowie's crotch, but the file size was too big. lol

    If there's something I approve more than David Bowie that's definitely David Bowie crotch.

My sister is a saint. Specifically Saint Peter. Because shes my best friend until other ppl are around then shes all "nope, dont know him, dont like him."
Making it a rule that I don't do any world building for my new game before the actual gameplay is concrete and working. I have 16 years of lore to work with anyway.
Cheesy power metal makes everything better. No matter what you do, you'll feel heroic doing it.
