Warning: There are spoilers hidden in this blog about what characters you can use in the game. Reader beware!
I'm currently in the process of putting together a bit of a fandisc-styled side-project based off AAG, and am in need of some opinions.
How the game works, is that the original cast of AAG (plus bonus characters) will be split up into teams of 3, and you'll get to play as one of these teams (though you'll be able to unlock and use the other teams over the course of the game.) The idea is that these teams will stay static. So if you picked a team with Leon, Erin, and Scott for example, then those are the 3 characters you'll stick with unless/until you choose another team later.
Now the question is, how should I split up the characters? There's no doubt that some characters are inherently better than others, though you could argue that it depends on the situation and what's available to you.
Something else to consider, is that I'm thinking of making little 'skits' involving these teams. So if you wanted to see what certain characters might say to certain other characters, maybe I can form a team with those characters.
So with the 20 characters available, I want to make 13 teams, with each character being present in 2 separate teams (without having the same two people be on two teams. So if Leon is on a team with Erin and Jake, then neither Erin nor Jake should be with Leon in another team.) One character will sadly only be on 1 team since the numbers don't match up. For now, I've designated that role to
So I put together some sample team allocations. First example is "Theme" teams. So just some possible configurations:
Erin Indy Leon: The Strikers
Scott Violet Gray: Team Awesome
Indy Celia Jake: Small Childrens
Leon Gray Celia: Space Invaders
Jake Dread Erin: Special Operations
Otherwise, I could just have completely random teams. For example:
Leon Lavitz T-Bot II
Erin Tinder T-Bot
Indy Jeebes Leon
Gray Reeves Erin
Violet T-Bot Indy
Scott T-Bot II Gray
Jake Aila Violet
Dread Silvra Scott
Celia Kugar Jake
Hawk Lavitz Dread
Galde Tinder Celia
Silvra Jeebes Hawk
Kugar Reeves Galde
So.. thoughts/ opinions? If you want to suggest certain team configurations, that'd be cool too.
EDIT: Also, save-files game page is now up.
EDIT2: Decided to hide some of the theme team configurations so that it'll be more of a surprise~
