And I feel the need to write my rambling here, as my 'real friends' are not that interested in my stuff.
So, I've been writing and planning alot of stuff for my game. It's supposed to tell a story of an over-confident young girl and her taciturn older brother who she drags in quite an adventure after hearing about a 'walking alien spaceship terrorizing the Northern Coast'. But it's not all as it seems. As everything has it's light and dark side, so does this story. From a peaceful innocent town these two travel into big world full of corruption, polluted cities, crime and violence, the young ones come to crossroads where they should make their decision. Whether to understand the reality of our world or chase the alien spaceship.
I think you now get the idea what I'm after. I wrote all this because the final content and storyline will be much different from this, since I like to change things alot depending to my life experiences and how I want the story to evolve and in what direction.
Now the problem came up. I simply do not know what kind of GAME I'd make out of this. My first and strongest idea was to make an RPG with turnbased and versatile battle much like in Mother series (or Earthbound to some), but I simply cannot make myself to work on such complicated system, especially on Construct that is still under work.
Second idea was to a sort of 'action RPG' much like Castleroid games, but after thinking about it longer I realized it was way too silly for such serious yet cartoony game.
My current idea is an interactive novel or whatever those are called. A bit point&click and alot of text&reading with freedom of making decisions. Yet this would restrict my vision so much.
So there you go. I am in horrible whirlwind of failed ideas. Sometimes it feels that I should just write a book or make a comic, as I am experienced 3D artist and making all visuals in 3DS Max. It's just that those two couldn't have sound or interactivity which would completely strangle the last of my vision.
Discuss if you want and by God give me any suggestions, in whatever tone they may be. Also, there is alot of engrish or other horrible errors in my text, I think. Please do understand that english is not my mother's tongue.
