I Am Making A Game

Recommended Posts

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions guys! I'm sorry if some of the questions were a little vague to what you know about the game. Upon assessment here are some of the ideas I'd like to use.

 

Colour/flavour

 

My favorite suggestion for the colour and flavour is purple/grape by saltontoast, same reason as I liked the purple/mango idea, purple blends very nicely with the colours I have used for the landscape so far, and grape smoothies are delicious. The kitten flavour was also interesting, might look into that...

 

Shop Layout

 

C cret's idea for this was my favourite in terms of the bored looking shopkeeper. I don't think cycling the weapons is very practical however if you only have a restricted time limit to purchase what you want, so in terms of the weapons layout I am going with potatoefarms suggestion of weapons lined against the wall.

 

Enemies

 

C cret bags first prize again, love the idea of a small enemies that are easy and satisfying to kill but swarm in large amounts, a little like the scorpions in castle crashers. However I equally love potatoefarms idea of a cup with legs, not only is it in context but it also sounds hilarious. 

 

Combo metre

 

My favourite idea for this was golden ghosts', C crets idea of lots of small enemies ties in perfectly with the idea of an insane point collection massacre. Even your second suggestion was fantastic, "brain freeze" is a stroke of genius I will probably be adding as a powerup instead of a combo. I'd like to mix the massacre idea with potatoefarms beefy guy idea, just to make the experience extra satisfying. Maybe it's a huge wave of cats that get massacred? I've gotten a lot of ideas from this.

 

Weapons

 

Skirczac had an interesting idea of a marshmallow on a stick, I'm thinking of developing this into a spear type weapon that impales an enemie and the marsh mallow explodes. The potato cannon is an interesting idea too, perhaps they burrow into the ground as mines that explode.

 

Thank you all so much for the feedback, more questions coming soon! Sorry if I didn't mention everyone's suggestions but these are the ones that stood out to me!

Yes! So many of my ideas! Anyway thanks.

The mountain is pretty much done, so I've done the sketchwork for the shop, as you can see there are seperate shelves for seperate items, and the cat pulls a lever if you have the funds to upgrade an item.

I love how 'reception' is crossed out and 'In' is underneath and then 'bwwam'.

Haha that was just for the sketch, unless people think it should go on the final design?

The desk looks great. And the "inception" thing is really funny. I think you should keep it in, but it's your choice.

I like the wood texture, but I would use that color for the walls and a darker color (no u. I'm frum 'Murica) for the desk/counter itself

I've just caught back up with this thread and seen that you said you don't have much experiance in creating games. If you need help with anything make sure to get in contact with me. Personally I don't have much experiance but I have a lot of contacts in the flash community. I'm sure I could convince them to help you out seeing that awesome art of yours!

This is the final screenshot until thursday when I can start designing, got three days of college. Thank you all so much for the comments and support, when I started this up I didn't expect so many people to take an interest. I've added the cat, a lever, the lights are animated to flash 1 after another, and the sign labelled funds is animated to swing left and right. I can perhaps email you the flash file if you're interested in seeing the animated version. Next I'm gonna start work on the buttons to cycle through the weapons and decorate the desk.

Haha that looks amazing, something that I just thought of that might be kind of funny is adding a "No refunds" sign on the desk.

 

Anyways can't wait to see more of this!

The game needs someone named Scott in it

Wouldn't be a proper game without that
