The Concept


I'm making a game where you create your own monsters and battle them against other creators (or Makers, as they're called). This is a remake of a failed project that I intend to finish it this time. I know this isn't a groundbreaking game, but I figured folks would be interested anyway.


The Story


You play the role of Aron/Eryn (more this in Cast), a young orphan living in a cabin in the forest with your grandfather Oron, a world-class Maker.

While you're away at the Fusion House creating your first Monstruct, your grandfather Oron is approached by three shady characters (2 men and 1 woman)named Johl, Cirt and Vayn. He welcomes them into his and, after a light lunch, asks how he can help them. The leader, Vayn asks if Oron would be willing to share his Maker Formula with them and even offers to pay him handsomely. Oron refuses. As you return home with your new friend, you find him being threatened by the group. You ask your grandpa what's happening; he tells you to run. A battle ensues as Oron keeps them busy while you escape. You run away as an explosion booms behind you blowing you into a tree. You lose consciousness.

A young girl/boy finds you and takes you home. You wake up in a room you don't recognize and find out that you've been brought back to the Fusion House you just came from ealier. The owner says his niece/nephew, Flix found you in the forest passed out two days ago. You ask if your grandpa is there as well and the owner tells you the news that he was found missing, his house a complete ruin. The owner says you can stay with him and Flix, as you mourn your loss.

Later, you and Flix go to your house to find any clues to your grandpa's whereabouts. There you see a figure cloaked in black staring at the wreckage. As you walk closer you hear whispering.


"I'm sorry, old friend. I wasn't there in time to help you..."

He turns around just as you approach and you question him about Oron. He promises to tell you if you have a Melee with. After the battle, he speaks with you briefly and he leaves; you and Flin continue on your search. A flash catches your attention. Out of the corner of your eye you see a package with a letter with you name on it under a floor board. You open it and you read it. It asks you to meet your grandfather at Sunshine Island Resort.

You fold the note back and get ready to leave, determined to finish what Oron started, no matter what.

Now you embark on a journey to complete your grandfather's work. You'll face may challenges, fierce beasts and see great things that will change you forever--all while creating Monstructs of your own and avoiding the three people who attacked your grandfather.

But who was that man at Oron's house and what was his relationship with him?


The Cast


Aron/Eryn(Hero)

Gender: Male/Female
Caste: Unknown

A young orphan traveling the world trying to finish your grandfather's work.

Oron(Missing)

Gender: Male
Caste: Soil

A Master Maker who was creating a masterpiece when he was attacked. He disappears after battling the Malicious Trio.

Flix(Friend)

Gender: Female/Male
Caste: Unknown


He/she is a friend of yours ever since you were little. His/her uncle owns the Fusion House you use early in the game. Flix goes off to challenge the Makers at Grand Circle to become Champion.


Johl (Leader of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Male
Caste: Ember

Cold-hearted and burning with ambition, he destroys anything in his path. No one knows why he wants Oron's new Monstruct designs. But he's going to get them regardless of the cost.



Cirt (Member of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Male
Caste: Metal

A quiet man with no real moral compass. He'll follow anyone as long as their goals interests him. Not even his partners know that much about him or his past.


Vayn (Member of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Female
Caste: Gem

A natural beauty with a penchant for all things glamorous, she brings a lady's touch to the group. Totally in love with Johl, she'd do anything and everything he says without question.


Stranger(????)
Gender: Male
Caste: Unknown
While you may know nothing about this mysterious man, he seems to know everything about you and you grandfather. Who is he?



The Setting


In the distant past, a young alchemist was working with a formula for water transmutation, accidentally mispronounced something and created a living being. Thus was the first Monstruct born and the world was changed forever.

Now alchemy is the power that shapes the world. Many deadly illnesses are cured with a pill and everyday problems are solved with ease. People even move from place to place in an instant. In the midst of it all are the Makers, men and women gifted with the ability to create Monstructs. Some use them for work, some for companionship, others for glory. But everyone knows that these mysterious creatures are apart of their lives.


Castes/Aspects

Each Monstruct is derived from nine Castes split into three Aspects of creation.


Aspects


Element (The vital power of the natural world)


Soil


Breeze


Ember


Tide


Mystic (That mysterious force that guides the hearts of living creatures)


Halo


Aura


Umbra


Form (Those things used and shaped by the hands of man)



Gem


Metal

Each of these categories have their own traits and weaknesses which will be explained later.


The Features

Choose your gender (you have a choice of being a boy or girl)
Minigames (win hard to find items)
Missions (send your creations on jobs to gain great stuff)
Tournaments (Challenge other Makers to be the best!)
Monstruct Creation (the coolest part of the game XD)
Battle Tile System (turn the tide of battle with a flip of a tile)
Enhancement/Synergy System (transform your creations with items or fuse them to make an even stronger one)
Side Quests
Active Day and Night System
Calendar System(certain events occur depending on the day, week or month)

I'm currently trying to create a PvP System for this game(This is the hardest part)


Gameplay
The game will be broken up into 9 - 10 chapters, each with a mini-boss and a boss to complete it. Along with puzzles to solve as well.

!!!NOTE!!!
IF YOU'VE DOWNLOADED THE MINIGAME DEMO AND FEEL YOU'RE STUCK, JUST TOUCH THE BLUE CRYSTAL BALL AND YOU'LL GO TO A RANDOMLY CHOSEN MINIGAME. THANKS AGAIN!!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be adding more content as I finish up with this semester. Keep a weather eye out :)
This game intrigued me a lot, I had really high hopes of me being able to start playing the game and make my own monsters (or at least try combining elements to see what I get from them out of the assortment of monsters you put together for the game) but when I loaded it up the first time I named my guy "Mar" and I couldn't see him. Therefore I closed the game and just loaded up the game with the default name Aron then I could see him (this wasn't my real problem though just thought you would like to know).

My main problem I had with the game was that when I talked with the guy behind the counter and he gave his speech on how "nothing is free" and what not and he tells you to pay up. Well, naturally I did and I assume he's supposed to "port" you somehow to the actual map or your supposed to be able to leave or something and go to the actual map or whatnot but I couldn't.

I don't know if anyone else had a problem with this or maybe I'm doing something wrong but I thought it might be something worth mentioning.

Sorry, I should have explained better. For the time being use the default name for the demo.

Once you pay Rico, you go over to the GameSphere(the BLUE CRYSTAL BALL off to the right of him) and get teleported to a random game map that way. I'll put that in the script when the game demo comes out.

Again, my apologies to any inconvenienced...
Well the mini game was fun, I hope you'll be able to work on the game and get a demo out sometime soon. I would really like to do some stuff with battling other monsters and so on.

Thanks for giving me the heads up though, I didn't know what Rico was referring to when he was saying "blue game sphere".

try it again and you should get a different mini game. I'll try to have a workable demo in the summer, since school will be over. thanks again. :D
I tried it about three or four times lol. I think it was a bit excessive but it was fun for as long as it lasted though. Your welcome, and that would be awesome, I would love to get to "craft"/battle monsters.

by the by, which minigame(s) did you play?
I think I was only able to access 2 only because I gave up trying to play more after it gave me that boat blaster mini game.

It was boat blaster (if that's not the correct name then sorry).
Another one I thought was pretty cool but I don't really remember what it was.. but I do remember blasting boats a lot, it gave me that one the most though.

On a completely random note, I did see a one other monster game like your Monstructs game but not the same concept. The other one I saw (not to mention there's a complete lack of monster like Pokemon games) was called Summit Moon, I thought I would have tried the demo but the person took the download down.

The concept of it was that your this kid who hasn't been good at much of anything and he would like to become a monster tamer. He went out one day and (doesn't specify how) caught a slime as his "starter", someone saw him catch it and told the King. The King thereby told them to bring the kid to him, and from there on he would help you become a tamer and such.

I thought it was cool so wanted to try it, though since the person took the download down I could not try it. Though seeing A LOT of people create cool Pokemon games or monster like games has inspired me to making a game myself and obviously the concept of it is to use monsters in place of Pokemon.

Plus since your a "Monster Tamer" you can have up to 4 Monsters in your party to battle for you (like in Pokemon! :D). I've been working on it for less than a week now, I thought I would mention this to someone cause at the very least I could get some opinions as to what someone else thinks.

I'm sorry for leaving a big text blob, but what do you think honestly?

Hey! This seems like a cool game. I see lots of RTP mapping and it reminds me of our first project. You should upload better quality screenshots, by the way!

I'd love to make some atmosphere-like fogs for some of your more important maps in my spare time if you'd like to have them (here's an example of what a map can look like with them). It could make some of your maps stand out a bit more. Let me know if you're interested and good luck!

thanks for the ideas. I'm in the process of making better screenshots and other things as well.
Hey, it's been a long time I hope this game is still being worked on, I was finally able to check out your demo and I liked the game so far. At this point though I imagine this game might be getting worked on anymore sense your last post is coming up to being close to a year now.

Though I just thought that I should say that this is quite good despite the many missing pictures and glitches and all that.
