Hello there! I'm super new, just barely learning the scene and languo with RPG Maker, and I was hoping to get some feedback or guidance on what I should do next for this project of mine!

I'll be including rough images and a thread I made on Twitter for my more rambly thoughts. In short, this game I've envisioned will have a story to it, combat where you can dodge and have special attacks, various boss battles, and sprinkled in romance featuring the two leads. Here's an image with more of my thoughts to it and the leads!

I'm mostly an artist, not at all a programmer, so it has been challenging trying to figure out the best first steps for this. So currently, I'm learning how to use RPGMaker VX Ace Lite but ideally I'll get to make it in MV. Though I am unsure if certain game mechanics would even be possible to have considering I really want a rhythm minigame in it and a bullet hell-esque boss battle. However I'd like to accomplish this Outline which will be the games 'prototype' and/or demo.

I like your concept sketches a lot.

By adding things like rhythm game sections and bullet hell sections, you're going to essentially be doing all the work to create multiple different games. It's possible to do that, but pretty difficult, in RPG Maker. I would recommend completing the entire "bread and butter" of your game first (whatever constitutes most of the gameplay or appeal of the game), and adding additional modes of play like rhythm or bullet-hell bosses after that's all completely implemented.

Seconded, really hot sketches! :biggrin: I also like your basic story, since it's got a nice conflict built in. Aaand I like the "people are prejudiced against my friend, we're gonna prove them wrong!" angle. But, if the conflict stems from the other miko finding out, how does it follow that the final boss is a giant demon? Is it just, "You gotta prove Yuyuki's innocence by defeating all these demons"? Somehow, from a storytelling perspective, that seems a bit lame...

These concept sketches are really good, along with the idea itself!

If you do get another rm engine other than VX Ace lite, I would wait for MZ to come out to make your project because some of the new features would help a lot, no matter what ideas you have in mind. There are also plenty of different tutorials and guides here on this forum and on youtube and reddit that would be able to help you get the rhythm game system and the bullet hell system down. Good luck with your project :kaopride:

Oh for sure! I plan on doing the basic/core functions first before I try doing any of the 'ambitious' ideas

Right! So, the others do find out and want to seal her back up because she'll be a danger, so Sakura thinks that by taking care of a certain demon that even the miko can't take care of, her friend will earn their respect! Sorry for the unclearness I wasn't sure how to shorten this little bit of explanation.

Okay! Sounds like a banger! :biggrin: (Also I can't get over how hot the leads look!)

Glad to see this topic finally get the attention it deserves! :D

@Wakawaka24 Double-posting (posting directly beneath yourself unless it's been a few days since the last post) is against forum rules, so in the future if you need to quote multiple people, just use the Multi-Quote function (which is the little "+Quote" label on each existing post - just click those on the posts you want to quote, then click the INSERT QUOTES button that will appear in the text entry box where you normally type your post).
