I've never understood the appeal of Disgaea's hyper-inflated numbers. It's the video game version of having a million Zimbabwean dollars.

Hitting for 20 damage in Fire Emblem is way more satisfying than doing 4,957,721,846 damage in Disgaea

That's a lot of CAPES, lol. (You should edit your post so it says "cap", not "cape".)

I'm not sure I understand what's going on here.

That is too big of a scope for one person to undertake...but if you wanna do that, it's your call.

Not really...numbers are just numbers. Do you individually enter information for every single of the 99 levels your game comes with by default? No, you set starting and ending values and generate a curve.

Everything else on there is the same, you just set up the math for "this level has this effect in combat" and it doesn't matter how many levels there are.

If you were trying to make by hand content for every level, obviously a full team of developers couldn't actually make so much as one different enemy per level, so you'd have to use some assortment of enemies/items/skills and set their stats to something relative to the player's ridiculous level.

Heck, you could make the characters gain tons of levels with every hit and achieve this in a single map with a few fights. Weird numbers don't equal a grand scope :guffaw:

I remember when I was this young, and I also liked the dopamine gain from back then a lot more.

Let them dream, guys.

I just realized the age of the OP. Yeah, this is making a lot more sense, LOL. I don't even want to remember the monstrosities I made when I was that age.

For once, you read way too deep into that.
I'm...not sure how to take that! If I normally don't read too deeply into things, are you saying you think I'm shallow? :wink: :guffaw:

I'm making a game set in a modern-fantasy world where the characters are based on me and my friends. It originally started as a joke.

It's a standard turned-based JRPG where my character (I uh, mean the main character) ends up dragging her friends on an adventure through places in the city. It'll be pretty dungeon-crawler like. A minimal time system where some of the part members are at work and can't join you and everyone has the same amount of skills. Plus a passive and a field ability (such as lighting the dungeon or detecting traps). Optional places to visit, like a haunted mansion or swamp.

The game starts off with me and my fiance chilling on the couch when something disturbs my animal companions - I'm an elf and brought my "pets" into the city with me. Insert first battle. The next part is one of my friends had tripped and lost her wedding ring in the sewer, and my adrenaline from the night before kicks in. I'm rearing to go find it. XD

In the sewer, I see several different disturbing/weird things that makes me question the local factory. I tell my boss (I'm a newspaper writer) who says if I have evidence, I could write about it. Something like that.

I've been trying to think of a name for this game for months and nothing's come to mind. Any ideas?

So I was working with the save system (yes I'm going to at least use RM's save system, I'm not a total monster)... And I realized I was lonely so I brought along some friends to test stuff out. :LZSexcite:

my game has distinct areas where travel through what are known as "battle stations" these are more or less areas to explore and fight. occasionally, you'll stumble across secret rooms with sidequests ready to be taken. this area is in the high school attic of all places... but how do ya get there is the question.
