I've been thinking lately... Do any of you have a goal or intention of creating something that would spawn its own reality and loved by many individuals across the earth? A book, a comic, a cartoon, show, or a game. If so, any little bit of pictures or lines you can put here to adverties for your future work?
With that said, I'm planning something for years but I had no chance of actually visualizing it. I'm planning on making a game. Nothing much, a 2D Platformer/Adventure is what I have in mind. It's done before, I know, and lately the genre is not that active except for some very creative and entertaining indie games. I'm fiddling with Game Maker for years and I always tried to start with my project which always blew up on me in some place or another (usually I can't get the dialouge system right). For a month or two I was thinking more and more about it, the design of it and the appeal, you know. For some time I was trying to implement a Sonic styled character in a city full of human setting but now I think that it's too unoriginal. So I thought... I would redesign it. And then there comes the new anxieties. Is the new design of the character worthy and appeals? Is the "seemingly effed up" setting I'm planning to go for going to work? I would like to ask you guys here. I'm not going to show every aspect of my plans for obvious reasons, but I thought I could share a picture I recently drew (not finished however).
Would you play a game looking like this?
