I'm a small time Indie Game Designer. I like to create Concepts and Ideas for game and bring them to life through the creation of a team of dedicated individuals. For the most part I am a very charismatic individual, I love having discussions about nearly anything and even more so about game development. If you ever have time PM me or MSG me on MSN:

Game Development: The Giant Orb of Brainstorming

The Giant Orb of Brainstorming


Hey everyone, basically this topic is here for three reasons: Brainstorming, Critiquing, and Guidance. In my recent experiences while working on The Last Bible, I feel as if some elements of the games Plot may be wack, and 100% off the track. Basically with this topic we will share Plot Ideas and help one another develop our games and perfect ideas in terms of Character, Plot, and Game Development as a whole. In order for this to work however courtesy and basic respect is needed. If you have a game Idea you need help developing or need help finding where to go next please create a post in this topic. One thing I would love would be if everyone could both share ideas as well as critique and help other's ideas. In terms of respect this mean, giving thoughtful feedback, and not flat out, “This idea sucks ass”, and in terms of courtesy this means critiquing and giving feedback to the person who has posted above you rather than spamming the thread with your own ideas. Common rule of thumb is just abide by the forum rules, along with these rules are some Guidelines I have created that will help this discussion and allow Game Developers to utilize this topic to the fullest.


Name: The name of your game.
Progress: Your games current progress.
Background: Some basic background of your game, please do not add spoilers, this is basically to help everyone know what the hell your game is

Idea Type: The Type of Idea or Progressing: Script, System, Character Dev. etc, etc.
Idea: Utilize the
tag to hide all Ideas that are being shared. This is used mainly to prevent spoilers and such. Basically within this Tag you will post you idea. This idea can be anywhere from story development to area design. You may post screens and such to help get your point across, and if any additional background is needed to help set the mood of the game, In terms of scripting and such please add these inside the tag.

Feedback: This is not need for one whom is posting an idea for their own game, but is needed when giving feedback to a game. Please utilize the
tag as well in terms of feedback. However please note that there is actual feedback inside the below tag. When giving Feedback please us the @The User Name format of response.
In Conclusion

I hope this topic really gets people together, all in all I am not an IRC kid, but if needed we could get a channel of this. I hope many of you will work together in terms of Feedback and Ideas, and if this is the case please use AIM, MSN, and any messenger form to continue to help one another if not on the forum.

Title Screen Request

Hey there, I have come to the point of game development in which I really need to pretty up one or two things. Of these things are The Last Bible's Title Screen. Basically this is a request to create a Title Screen for my game The Last Bible. Below are the items I wish for the Title Screen to possess, ultimately I will create an Animated Title Screen utilizing one of Cherry's Patches, but for now one of these will suffice.

Needed Items
  • The Last Bible: The Title of the game, perhaps in a Gothic Font.
  • A Cross or a Bible image in the background.
  • In terms of mood, definitely want a darker tone and mood.

Also I would like whom ever is working on it to use my Tales of Falonia Title Screen as a Template. Basically I would like The Last Bible to be at the top center of the screen however lowered a little bit. As well as the same arrangement of the New Story, Bookmark, and Quit Options. However instead of New Story and such I would like Commence, Memory, and Quit.

Thank you for your help, I really need it.

The Sword or the Pen: Your Character's Weapon Preference in RPGs

The Sword or the Pen: Your Character's Weapon Preference in RPGs

Times have changes, ideas have sparked, new worlds unfold to us from the minds of various creators. As we develop and creator our own unique worlds, we craft our own forms of technology, and even really on history to provide us with past and present forms of technology. Despite how long time goes on, and despite the innovation of our current time period, one tool still remains etched and engraved into the minds of many RPG Player. This tool is “The Sword”. Forged of iron, sharp to the point, this cutting tool is what can be labeled as “obsolete” if we look at all the modern technology which our world possesses. Of course the use of a sword in RPG's is dictated by the World and Time period, (Swords have evolved from simply metal, now we have seen Gunblades, Lightsabers, and such) however why is it that even in imaginary worlds, that the sword still remains at the top of the Weapons food chain. I mean honestly its nothing but a heavy piece of forged iron.
My main questions are:

1. What weapon selections are available in your RPG's ?

2. Do you plan to break away from the stereotypical “boy with a sword” in your RPG, if so then why. If not why do you believe that a sword is a useful choice of weaponry even in an environment ruled by futuristic technology?

3. Why do you believe swords constantly appear with RPG's despite the innovation seen in our modern day?

Lastly discuss anything in relation to the topic, enjoy :-*

Maya Personal Learning Edition (PLE) is a special version of Autodesk Maya software, which provides free access to Maya for non-commercial use. This is no dinky trial.

I used Norton for many years and it was the best thing available until it got too big for its britches. Now it's a hulking resource hog that fails to get the job done.

That's ok, though, because the better alternative is free, unlike Norton with those obnoxious subscription fees. Keep your computer well protected and virus definitions up to date with these two better-than-Norton titles!

Avast! 4Home Antivirus
It is the opinion of the makers of avast! that the best way to protect their big paying customers is to prevent viruses from spreading at the individual level. There is no better way to accomplish that than to offer your product free to the little guy while charging corporations and organizations the big bucks. This is no piddly open-source hackjob; avast! is the real deal and the best thing going to keep your computer virus free!

AVG Free
Working under a similar philosophy as the avast! people, AVG is a fully loaded anti-virus title free to the little guy. You can get a few more bells and whistles with the paid version, but the free version essentially does the same job as far as anti-virus protection goes. While you're there, pick up their free anti-spyware program and their free anti-rootkit program to maximize the health of your computer.

PDF converter

The best way to share documents and similar files that may change appearance in different programs or even different versions of the same program is to share them as pdf files. PDF files are WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) and you'll never lose information or have your friends see trash where you made treasure when you share your precious documents in pdf format. Write pristine tutorials with all of your illustrations intact no matter who opens it!

Don't bother paying hundreds of dollars for Adobe's converting software, you can get it all that functionality free. It installs as a printer driver, so anytime you want to save an item as a pdf file, it's as simple as clicking your print button, which will bring up a save box so you can title your new file. For the free version, an ad will pop up, but if you want to skip the ad, the ad-free version is $9.95 ($19.95 for the entire suite of pdf software including security and pdf editing features). That beats the hundreds of dollars you'd have to pay for Adobe's software.

I have some more links, however I have to work on something real quick.

The Last Bible: Script Reading Request

I know there is the Artistic Forum, but I don't really find this as Literature yet. Basically I have been working on a Script to end the Third Chapter of my game. I was going for the "big" clincher, and I need an honest opinion. In terms of coding it, don't worry I don't have a problem with that at all, simply because the majority of it will be a mix of "anime" and coding. Simply post here to ask for the Script. I don't want to spoil anything, but I really need help, and your response would really help with this games completion.

(Also if you can find Crammer and Spelling Errors that is very much appreciated.)

Ridiculous Image Thread #1

Probably the first and the last. Post ridiculous, odd, and funny images in this thread. However please mind the Age Group around here as well as morality. (I think a lot of things are funny, but some things aren't to be made fun of.)
