Game Ideas / Tim And The Ants (Working Title)
« on: September 04, 2013, 01:08:19 pm »
I kinda stayed away from the forums a bit cuz i dunno know, so i guess im back now :D

The little boy tim and his little fox owns a small caravan.
Tim dreams under the tree about a place where everything is tiny and insects are the same size as humans.
And one day he wakes up and finds himself as tiny as the little ants he dreams about!
When he finds a small village, the frightening villagers tell him about a creature that has cursed them with evil.

Its now up to you to save the little village, and find out how you got there in the first place!!
And of course find your damn fox

I thought the combat would be something like Pokemon, Earthbound etc. And that you walk around in a 2D while moving like something from Castle Crashers
I want to put some humor and stuff to it, but also in beauty and peacefullnes, completely unvoiced and dialouges like old Sega games, i have a great vision about this game and this was one of the first ideas that came up in my head when i started to think about game development.
The whole concept is about something i actually always dreamed about, of course i did not have a fox or caravan, but it adds something to it that the boy is an orphan

The design and stuff like that is up to my partner Sixtis, and well have a chat about it.
This is definetly one of the ideas that i actually want to develop into a real game :D
alright more about this little idea later.
Feedback is always appreciated, and i want to know what u guys think :D

Game Art / Graphics Tablets
« on: July 27, 2013, 05:18:35 am »
Im thinkin about buying a graphics tablet, but i dont know so much about them, this one seems to be the one amazon users like, its called Wacom Bamboo Splash Pen Tablet (CTL471)

Do you guys have any suggestions, or should i just buy the Wacom one?

Chit-Chat / Chit-Chat: Different Contests?
« on: July 20, 2013, 04:09:11 pm »
Maybe the subject was a little unclear, but wouldnt a competition/contest be nice? I mean, sometimes the forums seem a bit dead.

I was thinking of something like a monthly/weekly competition where the would be a challenge like: De-Make a short playstation game or make a sprite inspired by anger. And if you win your submission(s) gets featured or something, with a basic set of rules and an admin/Jon to arrange it, (i could help to arrange) it would be fun to chit-chat a little bit on a mega-thread just for fun. Darnit, i wish i joined stencyl earlier ;)

So what do you think? Leave your thougths below.

Game Ideas / Some ideas for a new game...
« on: July 17, 2013, 02:10:13 am »
I decided to write some biographs, just for fun, and if they are good i will put them in this game, A Cloak From The Past.

These are just biographs about the four playable characthers in the game. But i would like to hear your feedback and so.

Personalities And Biographs:

Timmy The Kid:

Biography: Not much is known about Timmy, although he makes a good explorer and adventurer he is just a kid and does not really think and wonder that much, his parents are unknown, although he lives with his "grandpa", and grandpa is lost. And thats why he is out looking for him. But he should have armored himself more than a bucket and a cloak, i mean the sword is okay but... oh? I forgot to tell you he found a magical cloak? Well thats what the game is about.

Weaknesses: He is afraid of the darkness and cannot enter dark places without some kind of light.
Timmy is bullied by other kids for his imagination, but he does not really care about it, timmy is also very bad at ranged combat since he can only throw bombs and paralyze enemies with nuts or stones he finds around trees.

The last and the strongest weakness is that he has no more than 25 Hp points (since he doesnt have any "real armor"

Strengths: His sword was given to him as a birthday gift from the Town Wizard, the sword has a magical enchantment of "unbreakable", since he doesnt have to change his sword, it makes a lot more space in his backpack and belt, where he instead puts nuts and rocks, and some Hp Pots, his bucket on the head gives nothing in plus since its not enchanted,  but makes him overall more cute, and that has benefits in gameplay, believe me or not.  He is also immune to all poisions and diseases caused by food and various attacks, that is very useful since the other characthers can be diseased, but not cured. 

The last and best thing is that he is short, and can manage to get across tight spaces and risky bridges, as Ernie, you can of curse fly, but not crouch or land.

The Birdie Ernie:

Biography: Birdie Ernie, or just Ernie. Is Timmys best friend and pet, when Ernie was a little kid trying to learn to fly he fell into a hot, and i mean burning hot brew, only seconds after his mother flew and catched him, and some days after the incident Ernie started to get a bit darker, "burned" feathers, and when he opened his mouth he accidently spited fire and killed his mother, since he was just a baby he didnt really care, turns out it was some fire brew, man, what do i know? and from that day he just knew he was something special, and Timmy taught so when finded Ernie too, he burned down Grandpas house a few times, but i mean... Thats why Timmy loves him, rigth? And besides breathing fire and spiting lava, he can fly fast and carry lots of stuffs in his backpack.

Weaknesses: Breathing fire is good for combat, but sometimes people will  not be so nice to him, mainly because they think that he will destroy their house or kill them by accident and the ability to not crawl or land, is a big minus. He is also alot more likely to be poisoned or diseased.

The last and strongest weakness is that he cant talk, because birds dont talk, they spit fire, but dont talk, simple as that.

Strengths: He is very good in combat and does a lot of damage, espiecally the overall stacking damage. He can carry lots of stuff in his backpack, he is very fast and has a total of 45 Hp, he can also activate switches beetween gaps and levers at walls, overall he is very fast and good at combat

The last and best thing is that he is the only characther that can fly. Since he is a bird. What did you think? Birds fly man, accept it.

Reinard The Wanderer:

Biography: Reinard is a tall, and clumsy wanderer, he is on a trip on a request from the Lord of Bitroftia across all regions to write the longest and best book in the world, called An Adventurers Life 101. He is convinced that this is the only thing that he is good at, but Timmy and Ernie knows he makes a pretty god bowman.

Weaknesses: Although he is a good guy he can sometimes be a little ruff and angry in conversations, such things can lead to hostile villagers and guards, he is not so good with swords and overall close combat and he does not have any room in his backpack, mainly because he has his damn book in it.

His strongest weakness is that he is very clumsy and can be a little slower than the other guys to attack, and he cant climb stairs and ladders, he needs to be carried or thrown over a ledge/gap to come across.

Strengths: he is very talented with the bow during many many years of training, he is a little slow, but steady. He has a Hp value of 50, he is very tall and that has benefits, such as reaching apples on a tree and activating levers on a cliff.

The last and best thing is that he is a master at stealing stuff, which he isnt very proud of...

Mc Ruff The Strong:

Biography: Mc Ruff was born in another region of Bitroftia, where babies where thaugth to figth instead of speak, and where haircuts didnt exist, under an attack his parents died in front of his blue eyes, and later that day he was taken away by an old woman, and he grew up eating cake, lots of cake, thats why he is fat, as a life rule number one he has choosen to help anybody who needs him, but he refuses to use a weapon, and only fights bare-handed, he is a very nice person but the voice does not really go trough his beard, oh, i forgot to mention that he has the sexiest beard in Bitroftia. The girls are like: oh, here he comes :) yippie, you know, that feel? You dont? Oh well. I see

Weaknesses: he is very slow since he is fat, but strong. He can speak but only like: Me, Want, That... Since he wasnt teached to talk, and the voice cant really go trough his beard...

The last and strongest weakness is that he is unable to steal, since his moral is to not steal or harm a villager/wanderer.

Strengths: he is the strongest and "machoest" characther in the game, since he has 80 Hp points and does a lot of damage, some enemies migth even die after one punch! Do i have to say more? He is BADASS!!

The last and best thing is that he can but slam some of the stones and metal sometimes crossed in Bitroftia... and yes... It will break. This is considered to be overpowered, but he is macho ;)

Game Ideas / Vote: Our Next Game
« on: July 13, 2013, 12:25:39 pm »
A few of you might recognise us from our recent post and even if A Normal Day isnt even in development yet, we would love to let you vote for the next game, but as soon as we get a little more money we can get better computers and licenses for app store and shit :D.

Keep in mind while you vote that this a "test" and even if the one that wins, well wins... we will maybe not make it. but we would like to see your choice and well try our best and better to make two or one of the candidates

Game Ideas / My First "Game": A Normal Day!
« on: July 11, 2013, 12:04:53 pm »
i been throwing around with this new game idea i call a Normal Day! this is my first real game and i wanted to make something in stencyl that was easy and filled with humour, so i decided to think on it.

So a Normal Day is a 2D action platformer about an octupus invasion from outer-space and randomly caused disaster and destroyal, whitch side you choose matters and changes the main gameplay, your best friend or the high king of the octolords

you run, falcon-punch and stone-butt trough the city of Chicago as you either choose to be on a mission for the octolords or some sort of self-taken order to take revenge on them, as a two man team with your friend Roland or octopus-birdie Makaroni! Including epic boss batles versus either dangerous octolords or the president, nothing can go wrong! except for everything :)
i want it to be a small and about a 1-2 hour enjoyable experience with some easter eggs, i want to put the focus at the pixel art and gameplay, my brother-from-another-mother is doing dubstep-music to the game. Im working with my best friend August, so we cant really do that much of a long game right now, if it goes well there is always sequels and shit ;)

I would be very thankfull if you gave me some feedback on my idea and suggestions on everything, yet nothing but the music is in development so i hope we will be able to post some images and demo stuff soon :D
