    Entertaining Races

    Well, I did notice on your game post how you used a new pronoun for the alien. Honestly I am not too sure how to feel about that. I mean, the thing about making new pronouns is that if everyone is otherwise just speaking English and you throw out an alien word, it's kinda jarring. Though admittinglly English borrows words all the time, so it would make a degree of sense if it was borrowed for some new concept of gender. Like for a race that has three main gender roles, none of which really are directly parallel to 'male' or 'female'. But if you do do that, I wanna know how it works, especially if they have three sexes too. Give me the messy details yo! Though what about a race that doesn't even think gender is a meaningful construct, or understand what it is, and/or their language just doesn't use gendered pronouns at all and the whole idea baffles them a bit? I guess the major reason people don't actually do this kind of thing very much is that most of the writers around here are human and only really know how to write humans. Heck I used to be human myself, but being a fairy is more fun! Yeah, I guess a fairy could count as a 'spicy human', but we can be extra spicy sometimes. Can humans fly and sense magnetic fields? I think not! You can't even turn to look ana or kata! Poor humans stuck living in only 3 dimensions...

    I think one of the best examples is from the MegaMan franchise. Humans, robots, and cyber elves, navis, and viruses are all different races with different levels of intellect. Viruses are more like a different race for animals. Each race has different abilities. However, the humans control the politics since they created the other races. Well...they controlled the politics until the time between the X and Zero series. MegaMan X becomes a politician and fair ruler of Neo Acadia. There are key differences between each race. Robots, cyber elves, and navis can live forever unless someone or something destroys them. They are immortal from natural deaths. Humans are not immortal and will die of old age at the least. Furthermore, some robots do not have characteristics of humans. Storm Eagle is based off of an eagle, and Cyber Peacock is based on a peacock and the internet.

    Well, just keep at it, but never try to force ideas.

    Stranded in Space

    Stranded in Space is one of the games I'm making. I like to describe it as a story-based survival game. The goal of the game is to travel from planet to planet, ship to ship, station to station and survive in space with a minimal crew. Each location brings new surprises and adds to the story that keeps the crew going through the galaxy in hopes of finding someplace hospitable to live out the rest of their days. The premise is that a deadly virus spread across a colony ship. The ship's android managed to save two members of the population from faulty cryostasis pods by repairing them before the people within froze to death. Years later, after the virus finally died off, they decide to awaken the two people. Soon after, the ship is boarded by a crew of space pirates who abandon their leader and take off. Together, the four must survive and find somewhere to live. The game's main characters are as follows: NAME: RAI5 (Robotic Artificial Intelligence #5) POSITION: Technician SPECIES: Android PLACE OF ORIGIN: Jupiter GENDER: Agender (Feminine) PRONOUNS: They/them, she/her MENTAL HEALTH STATUS: Codependent, afraid of being alone FAVOURITE COLOUR: Red FAVOURITE ANIMAL: Solar phoenix FAVOURITE MUSIC GENRE: Ska FAVOURITE PLACE: Their personal quarters FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: Fixing things BIGGEST ASPIRATIONS: To see the universe, to befriend what's left of the crew NAME: Theodore "Teddy" Atkins POSITION: Chef SPECIES: Human PLACE OF ORIGIN: Earth GENDER: Male PRONOUNS: He/him MENTAL HEALTH STATUS: Autistic FAVOURITE COLOUR: Blue FAVOURITE ANIMAL: Cat FAVOURITE MUSIC GENRE: Rock FAVOURITE PLACE: Any kitchen FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: Cooking BIGGEST ASPIRATIONS: To learn every recipe in the galaxy NAME: Henrietta "Henri" Newman POSITION: Botanist SPECIES: Human PLACE OF ORIGIN: Earth GENDER: Female PRONOUNS: She/her MENTAL HEALTH STATUS: Anxiety FAVOURITE COLOUR: Purple FAVOURITE ANIMAL: Mouse FAVOURITE MUSIC GENRE: Electronica FAVOURITE PLACE: Gardens FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: Reading BIGGEST ASPIRATIONS: To have a nice house with a garden and a gazebo NAME: Vanity of He'El, House of Lero POSITION: Flight Officer, Space Pirate SPECIES: He'Elean PLACE OF ORIGIN: He'El GENDER: None, as PRONOUNS: Nov/novs MENTAL HEALTH STATUS: Codependent FAVOURITE COLOUR: Pink FAVOURITE ANIMAL: He'Elean faedeer FAVOURITE MUSIC GENRE: Rock FAVOURITE PLACE: Anywhere nova friends are FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: Dancing BIGGEST ASPIRATIONS: To become a well-loved person

    Stranded in Space

    I have spent a while practicing. I do not expect any part of it to be easy. I am still on the basic designing part of the game and it's hard! haha I just hope the game is as good as I want it to be and as interesting as you both say it sounds.

    Is certainly interesting, though survival RPGs are not easy to make... I know, I started one and I'm struggling with it...
