SHOOBINATOR'S PROFILE

I am into just about every genre of game really. My brother and I grew up dabbling in RM2k3 on occasion to the point where hearing the RTP soundtrack brings a wave of nostalgia, so I'm most familiar with that engine as far as RPGMaker goes.

Check out my game I'm working on!

Game denied. My mapping needs "some pretty serious help." That's less than helpful...

Thanks for the feedback! Did you see the whole video or just the screenshots that were on the game page? Which parts of my maps are better? Which ones worse? to give me a better idea of where to go.

Do you think I should just directly contact the head of submissions at this point or try to make it better first?

Game denied. My mapping needs "some pretty serious help." That's less than helpful...

This was the exact response I got with my game submission denial:

"Your mapping needs some pretty serious help. Check out our screenshot topic, or play Carlsev Saga which uses the same tilesets.

There was no name given for whoever gave this response.

If my game page can be privately accessed on this site, here's the link to see the exact screenshots that I posted along with my submission:
http://rpgmaker.net/games/4755/

If that page is inacessible (again, I'm not sure whether it is or not), I posted all the gameplay that I have on Youtube thus far (also you will see all the mapping that I have ready so far):




Now, being new here, I'm not quite sure what the benchmark for game submissions are. That said, perhaps my game isn't really up to snuff or maybe the specific screenshots that I posted with my submission just didn't do the game justice. However, the reply that I got was less than helpful for two reasons: (1) I actually used mapping tutorials from this site as I was working on this prologue, and more importantly, (2) the response gave no indication of what aspect(s) of my mapping needed "some pretty serious help."

Additionally, this beginning section of the game is supposed to be more vacant, so don't suggest adding little animals/critters for example to liven up the scenery. Plus, I already looked at Carlsev Saga and while its maps might have some more detail in places, it shouldn't mean that every map in every game should have the same exact level of detailing.

Any help or a second opinion would be appreciated!

Working on RM2003 game: Legend of Alkior (gameplay on youtube). Feedback?

Hi everyone! I'm new here but would consider myself well-versed with RM2003. I would appreciate some feedback on a game I'm working on called Legend of Alkior (working title). I made some pretty great strides last summer working on this project, working on battle mechanics (fixing the bad parts of RM2003 like physical/magical attributes etc.) and story, which a friend of mine and I fleshed out quite a bit.

You can see what fully completed gameplay I have here:




Also, if you are reading this and you think you might be interested in dialogue writing for this game as a hobbyist (sorry, I'm a college student so I have no $$$), please contact me if you'd like to come onboard with this project. I would give more details of the plot/story now, but I honestly haven't touched this project in months and would have to look back at some old documents to give a more coherent background story for you. And personally, I am more interested in the battle system and map-making than the script.

Basically, I would like to know if people are interested before putting more work into this without reaching a finished product.

Thank you in advanced for your replies!
