@Kaelan, I like that much better. Well done!
Working on Npc character sketches and menu stuff for a Sci-fi / Cyberpunk game with some Lovecraftian cosmic horror elements.
Wow I really dig those icons!
I didn't make the icons I got them from flaticon.com. I was going to load up Adobe Illustrator and make my own till I remembered I access to thousands of them with a click of a button in photoshop.
Looks very clean, Azahoth. Pretty awesome facesets and gauges as well. Keep it up!
For myself? Well, I'm mapping field after field maps... I've completed the South and Western parts though!
The edges of those cliffs are harder to map than they look like. Shift mapping has definitely become a must for me now.
Looks great, Azahoth. It reminds me of a project I am working on as well, I'll share more about it soon though. Seems like a fun game with some great elements, I like the clearance function and the scenery too. Also, the dark soldier character interests me - is it a custom character?
Working on the Delevel Forest in my next project. The first dungeon.
I'd been in a slump and hadn't written anything in a couple months, but the other day I was helping Blindga brainstorm for a character design for an NPC in his game and Ellisandra Fairehorn came about as a side effect of that session. I've had her story going through my head since and trying to get it written down.
Since I started writing my main OC, Theran, has basically been a "confirmed bachelor", but immediately after I came up with the character description for Ellisandra I started thinking those two would go together. She didn't even have a name yet and I just knew she was going to be with Theran. It was like she emerged from the shadows, declaring that Theran was hers before she even introduced herself!
As to how it ties in with RPGMaker, Venka suggested I do up a scene showing some of her history and I liked that idea. It won't be for a while though as I don't yet have that history completely fleshed out.
Working on the concepts for my first ever attempted tileset - Cyberspace. My goal is to merge Tron (old and new) and Neuromancer's view of Cyberspace. After looking at a lot of pictures of the classic Tron movie, (I'm familiar with the new one but its aesthetics are easier to remember --- translucent grey), I've decided on a few concepts:
- Floor tiles will be translucent, with rounded edges, and optional extra-layer tiles (of various colors) with subdued tick marks
- Borders will be brightly colored blue/orange/white and should layer on top of the 2 floor tile layers
- Stairs should resemble tubes of energy
- Buildings will be mostly seamless (Cyberspace doesn't use bricks after all) with edges around the borders. Some will have "hints" of height. Roofs will be mostly solid (a building is a protected area) with subtle patterns, if any.
- I'll try to add some energy lines, thinner than the stairs, sort of like Cyberspace's bridges, although probably not auto-tiled since they are thin lines in varying directions
The tiles will be meant to exist over darkness (fun with Parallax backgrounds), since all depictions of Cyberspace I've ever read have most of Cyberspace being quite empty.
Of course, taking the ideas into actual tilesets is the real challenge.
It is so unpredictable what will break a dry patch. Sounds to me as though she was lurking around in your subconscious for a while for her to emerge the way she did, so perhaps 'fallow' would be a better description of the last couple of months.
This sounds very interesting indeed. Good luck bringing it off.
After some frustration with the tablet i draw again with hand (after alooong time).
They looked much better so i tried some faces for Ryu, the Main Charackter in Vanished Raven.
The Hair is.....worst XD
And it is so dark because this are Photos no Scans.
The one on the right (the second one) looks more like the Ryu i wanted....just....stupid hair again XD ...
Neck and Faceform i will try something between the two versions.
Yay I got springs workingggggggggggggggg
I am currently wrapping up the next section of Soulstice and revisiting the first to re-balance it.
Progress is moving along. Once I finish this section I will have about 65% of the overall work done and about 40% of the overall game!
Finished updated my website about current progress of my second game project so people can chime their thoughts and such and see where I'm at. Long road ahead.
Let me know if any issues arise thanks
* Spoiler alerts if you have yet to play the first game (but I try to keep spoiler free as much as possible )
Finishing up on the skill animations and combo skills for the shard skill system, will be finishing up the Character skills afterwards and working out more enemies before trying to iron out in play tests. Levels/maps are still in the early planning.
All of the above plus composing scripting lighting events and custom settings haiiiii
Writing up game mechanics for a lot of things that get expanded or improved in The Vendor. Among them is the "quest system" (now wanted posters), itemization (now with visible but simplified stats and quality measurements), as well as overall monster, and combat mechanics. Even though combat is "automatic" and done by the Heroes with no direct interaction from the player, it still requires a thorough combat system running in the background to make it all work properly, and for it to give fun and intuitive results. I've been spending lots of time the past month and a half on visual additions, like the overhauled interface, so this is a big change in work. It's refreshing!
I finally got this to work. Now I just have to make sure the grid system works with Theo_Allen's 1.4 battle system ;~;
Testing with other battle systems:
Test Battle system and character sprites demonstration.
(No stat balancing yet.) Also testing Rune Enchantment system.
Character sets, items, skills, musics, animation effects still use old version's.
and working in NPC Character Design too.
I'm working on a system that allows an event to be picked up in-game and transferred to another location (possibly on an other map), using only eventing to do so. My brain is still working to wrap itself around the plausibility of moving an event between maps. Also, thinking on how to make a sprite of npcs carrying tiny crates. Oh...oh...oh god, my brain >-<
