But I need a plot for the game I'm making. It's pretty crazy how far I got so far... with the template characters, lol. But just recently I got a good, functioning AI in the game, so it's something the player can interact with if they don't have a second person to play with. Then of course, I'll have LAN (hopefully [and I say hopefully because, though I have it working, sometimes it lags a bit and makes everything go off course, I'll have to figure out a way for the script to constantly be sending the position's of the characters to each other player constantly]), which should also help.
One thing that's been on my mind though. This game is working, it's going to happen, I think it's going to be fun, I think people will enjoy it... but it is A LOT of work, and A LOT more that needs to be done still... I need to work on the background art for the stages, the characters (I should have said that first, but I already typed it in second, and I don't feel like cutting it and putting it first now, so whatever, deal with it) graphics as well as unique traits of theirs, voice work and sound effects that need to be done for each one, music needs to be chosen/made... so on and so forth... I've been starting to think that, if I put this up for free on somewhere like Newgrounds, only a couple of people will play it or really care for it, and then that will be it... probably just being pessimistic, but still. I would like to make decent money off the game, but I feel like there's not much of a way to. To get it on somewhere like Steam, I need to pay for the Greenlight, and then I need like 10,000 people to vote it up, and I don't really have that many people who know about it in the first place, so I dunno. I guess my only option would be to put it up for free on NG, and on my own site as well. Who knows, maybe an angel will come over and give it a spot on Steam, if it's good enough...
GUH no more, I hate thinking about that, whatever, free or not, I want people to enjoy the game in the end, and I want a lot of people to know about it. But that's gonna be a long ways from now.
But anyway, yeah, the reason I made this stupid post to begin with, the PLOT... I DON'T HAVE ONE STILL, AFTER MONTHS OF TIME. But I got somewhere... SOMEwhere... I have a theme and a setting. Basically, I'm thinking of an fantasy magic/sci-fi thing. Like, magicky attacks and abilities, a fantasy world, but it's years in the future now, and though that old magicky stuff still exists, there's futury guns and beam swords and armor and stuff. I think that would be cool. Now I just need a plot. I want multiple races, like humanoid creatures with guns or laser swords (think of like, Terran from StarCraft or something), savage alien monsters (...Zerg, from StarCraft, again, for a reference), robots, of course... perhaps a fairy? With armor? Actually that would be pretty awesome. Really weird, but awesome. A magicky fairy species, but now equipped with the modern equipment to face the others. So basically that's sort of a them I have right now. I dunno. What do you think?
But a PLOT, that's not a PLOT, is it? No, it's not. What's the conflict in this planet/universe? It doesn't need to be complicated, but I would like a neato little plot, to act as a backbone to everything. Even very simple fighting games generally have a premise in the back.
I will continue to think... I will keep thinking... but if you guys have anything, I'd like to know... thanks...
