I have an issue with a game I'm working on where I want the main character to be the only real party member, but backed up by a support character. Eventually I want the player to have the ability to choose from a few different support members to fit their approach to battle. For example, one support offers buffs/debuffs on the enemy, another might assist with healing, another might do straight damage to the enemy and support that way.


But I'm having a hard time figuring out how I would do the selection process itself for choosing the support. Like I want the player to be able to choose from the menu who they want to assist, kind of like another equipment slot but a party member instead almost. Is their any feasible way to do this?

You know, I sometimes ponder if working on the story and details is more necessary than the game itself. Its... technically work, just not direct.

Like for me specifically I never stop evolving the story based on what avenues I can approach in gameplay and then I get anxious thinking "hey good thing I thought about that now instead of later". Repeat ad nauseam.

So my office building has 8 individually rented offices in it; 3 of which are social workers and 2 are marriage therapists... Unsurprisingly it always sound very angry out there. Glad I have my own private entrance. :LZSexcite: :thumbsup-right:
I wonder if there's ever been an art challenge that involves drawing faces from the generator.
