#280538 Greyscale Blood Censor

Posted by Purple Phantom on 10 January 2017 - 03:18 PM

I think I'll go without the greyscale censor, then. However, it looks freaking cool, so I think I'll have some scenes be in greyscale - not for censoring, though. Just because it looks cool and fits in with the moment.

 

As for flashback scenes, those will be completely in drawn cutscenes, rather than sprited cutscenes (that'd take a lot of custom spriting and the like and I'm not in the mood to deal with that XD), but greyscale would be cool for that! :D :D

 

Thanks for all your help, guys! ^_^

#279789 Shipwreck Survival Game

Posted by Purple Phantom on 06 December 2016 - 03:10 PM

So, I got this idea that, while I was waiting for resources for Aftermath: Gears of Hope, I could work on a game about surviving on an island after a shipwreck.

 

My ideas so far:

-Survival system

-Night/Day system

-Several survivors

-Crafting system

-Alt. character skins for separate outfits

-Game ends when you escape the island... But you don't have to!

 

Feel free to shoot me ideas.

Somebody very near and dear to me decided to put us on a juice fast for 30 days. In October, when my sugar addiction hits is peak. WHY IN THE HECK DID ANYBODY THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?!

We already do!

Thanks. :) I live in an extremely... Shell we say "stereotypically Christian" neighbourhood. My short hair, fandom shirts, tomboyish and geeky likes, my L-ish way of sitting (it's scientifically proven to be better for you) and my sexual/romantic orientation make me a target of "You need Jesus!" "You're sinning!" and the like. Like, dude, I'm Christian. I'm just not so overpoweringly Christian that I try to shove my beliefs off on others.

 

Back to the topic at hand... (This may be lame... I pretty much just wanted to thank you, then explain why I wished that.)

 

Wish granted! Unfortunately, the wheel of cheese rolls you over as soon as you get it and Super Saiyan Charizard kills us all, again.

 

I wish I could think the way L does.

I'd rather have 7 certain cookies! Guess I'm on ghosty side :wub:

Wish granted! Halloween is celebrated every month! (I'M SO SORRY, FAVOURITE HOLIDAY OF MINE, PLEASE DON'T HATE ME FOR THIS, I LOVE YOU MORE THAN SYMMETRY!)

 

Unfortunately, everybody gets stick of Halloween and stomach aches become a worldwide epidemic. Candy is banned. After about two years, people begin to hate Halloween and riots fill the streets. All Halloween lovers are brutally slaughtered and Christmas decorations come out in July, right after the 4th. As if September wasn't early enough, amIright?

 

I wish merpeople existed exactly the way I imagine them - calm, serene, easy-going a very friendly society of people, everyone talks like your typical surfer dude, but weary of humans because humans are honestly pretty jerky.




#276860 Hacking

Posted by Purple Phantom on 15 September 2016 - 02:55 PM

Thank you for your input!

 

 

Why do I want hacking in my game?
What purpose does hacking serve to the main characters?
Is a hacking mechanic going to disrupt the flow of my game (more than I want it to)?
Is there a way I can implement hacking without disrupting the gameplay?

Why do I want hacking in my game?/What purpose does hacking serve to the main characters?

Hacking would be a mechanic to get information on people, which is something many of the quests and other mechanics (friendship/dating/etc.) revolve around. There would be other ways to get the information, of course, but I would like the player to have many options available to them, from talking to them to hacking them. In the quest aspect of things, I can think of a rather major one that involves shutting off security, hacking into somebody's mainframe and obtaining information (and material rewards, if you so desire). Naturally, there would be limits and it's certainly a possibility that you could get caught in the act. In regards to Redacted, the services aren't free and getting caught talking to them wold have a huge impact on the game.

 

Is a hacking mechanic going to disrupt the flow of my game (more than I want it to)?/Is there a way I can implement hacking without disrupting the gameplay?

I was hoping others would have ideas, actually. So far, my biggest ideas for the feature are that you can talk to Redacted and have them get you what you need (at a price, of course - these things don't come for free) and being able to level up skills so that you can do some hacking, yourself. (Of course, you'd still need Redacted in some cases, as you'd have been studying hacking for about a year come the end of the longest run of the game and Redacted has been studying hacking for several years, perfecting things. Of course, I could eliminate the player being able to hack (on their own, at least) and just have the only time they're able to really hack be when they're talking to Redacted... Or just have Redacted be the Info-Chan of the game.

 

 

 

Ah so they are basically cyborgs... robohuman kinda imply them being less then sapient... it might be more of a slur. After all the word "robot" basically means "worker/slave".

Pretty much. It's why I didn't used to like the name. Unfortunately, I used it so much that it's just become their name. I'm open to ideas, though, if you have something you think would be better! ^_^

 

 

 

Honestly I would say the plot is kinda too farfetched for my tastes but whatever.

When I finally finish everything, you'll have the ability to completely ignore the base plot and it could be some sort of post-dystopian school sim game. My goal is a completely customizable story tailored to player's unique experience.

 

And now, for something not entirely game-related...

 

 

 

As for anime, I was mostly thinking of Ghost in the Shell (the original), Armitage III, and Chobits, but those are all more about AI.

Do you recommend those ones? :) I'm always on the lookout for new anime suggestions.
