/v/ Makes a Game Development Day 3

This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

Thread replies: 103
Thread images: 13

>What is this?
Some artists and programmers on /v/ trying to make a 3D platformer in the vein of Spyro, Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, etc. (Game will be made in Unity)

Basic concept is a Succubus jumps and glides to collect candy in a collectathon styled game, read the GDD and get in the IRC to find out more.

>Will this cost money?
Nope, the game is currently aimed at being released for PC for free. There are some hopes to get the game onto the Wii U as a long term goal since it's inspired by N64/PSX platformers.

>What are you providing for the team?
Outside of being the "ideas guy" I am contributing with 3D Stage Design in 3DStudio Max. Additionally I will be translating the game to Japanese. Largely I am in charge of organizing the project.

>Check the blog for updates and the Game Design Document
https://www.tumblr.com/blog/letsmakeagameforthewiiu

>IRC
#wiiugamedev on #Rizon
This is for general discussion. The devteam usually talks on Skype.

>Email
[email protected]

>Current Team
1 Lead Programmer
Several 3D Modelers
1 Lead Artist
Several Concept Artists
1 Musician
1 Voice Actor

>How can I help?
We always need more programmers and concept artists.

>Today's Goals

Decide on the final version of Alura, make any edits to her character design (Pic related)

Begin modeling Alura

Continue editing the GDD with a focus on game mechanics

Add more members to the team
>Keep in mind
These threads will not be posted every day. There is no need to shit up /v/ unless we have significant updates to give.

The first major milestone of the project will be a playable test area.
>>
Currently most people are favoring the top right version of Alura.

Short hair and larger wings will make her easier to implement gameplay wise.
>>
A unique mechanic being discussed is the ability to charm NPCs and enemies into following you around and help you platform
>>
Does anyone have the talking cauldron images from last night?

We decided we'd like a character like that to accompany the Witch who works at the item shop. He would talk and sell extras like extra lives, healing items, and extra outfits that don't change gameplay.
>>
>>265350031

Yes, we'll be putting serious discussion into this tonight.

>>
>>265350923

The beach level is described as being longer in shape. Small sand dunes and sand castles for platforming.

The world really begins to open up once you're able to go underwater. A small pond may lead to an outer area with a bigger ocean.

All levels should have a bowl shape, like a floating planetoid.

It's a slow burning hobby project.
Any help is useful, and most importantly you can gain experience.

>>265351529

>>265351581
This is conjecture. We have no idea how fast we can output things.

It could easily take several years.
>>
>>265351581
For a collectathon? It ain't worth it.
>>
>>265351372
Just had a bit of inspiration and start doodling in ms paint is all.
So what if the beach was limited to its bowl design via a curving hill surrounding a gulf at the beach? With a simple lighthouse?
Sheer cliff faces to platform on, the water is in the middle, and the beach with the sand castles or whatever are the first thing to play through on the way to either destination. Maybe have the player go the lighthouse to activate it, which in turn allows them to see underwater to go there.
>>
I'm so happy /v/ turned into a fucking hugbox.
>>
>>265351610
I'm still not sure.
The experience to work on a team, even if online, would be great actually.
>>
>>265351961

Sounds fantastic. Keep in mind concept art is really useful for the beach area, but we're currently focusing on the the hubworld as the first playable area.

So really, any concept art is useful, but might not receive attention until later.

A-anything I can do to help?
I have some sub par coding skills but not much outside of that

The well emerges somewhere in a rocky alcove, leads to a cliff face like this. This cliff and the mountains make up half the border of the area, with the ascending hill towards the lighthouse making up the other half.

Just fill up the middle with sand castle, beach towel ghosts, some of those Japanese umbrella monsters and you're good to go. The cliff face near the lighthouse can have some tough platforming opportunities too, leading to caves.

It'd be easy enough to fill up some negative space with arbitrary beach furniture, dunes, etc.
Honestly have no idea concerning the palette and tone, so that's all changeable.

>>265356387
nintendo has said they are making a 3d mario game, 3d world was not it, see the thing about a hat in time was that they struck while the iron was hot when no other 3d platformers were coming out, you guys are 2 minutes 2 late, there are now quite a few 3d platformers in development for wii u, now you will have to try and make yours stand out above them, again good idea but to late.
>but you just said they are not out yet.
And neither is your game by the time /v/ gets it shit together to finish this game they will be out and people will just call it another 3d platformer, you should go for a better goal, you are not being original

We're not competing with anyone, it's a non profit game. The main goal is for devs to get experience programming, and artists drawing, etc.

Also, it's just for fun.

3 days and the design of this Succubus hasn't changed at all.

>Arbitrarily chosen to be a succubus for no apparent reason.
>The design doesn't even look like a "Halloween" themed design.
>The design is still basic and bland with nothing unique or memorable. She looks like a backround NPC.

She needs something to set her apart. A weapon, a motif, something. Right now she's just chibi demon girl #3,000,000,001.
>>
>>265356817
I wonder what she would look like if her antennas were her hair instead and not have the bee parts and her name was honey. she can be a bee themed demon with out actually being a bee
>>
>>265356817
ohhh I like this a lot.

not nearly enough bees in video games.
>>
>>265357172
We're discussing her having the ability to charm enemies into helping her and being used for platforming purposes
>>
>>265357172

>Not exploiting that she's a succubus for any reason other than her having wings.
There is now a charm aspect to the game as well as a collecting souls mechanic.

>The design doesn't even look like a "Halloween" themed design.
It is literally orange and black.

>The design is still basic and bland with nothing unique or memorable. She looks like a backround NPC.

Reminder that this game should not be about collecting halloween candy and instead should be about girls that are also mythical creatures going out and collecting pieces of a sacred artifact to save the world from and evil villain

also hydra waifu needs to be made for reasons

I agree. Make her a bee.

Contact us if you're serious.

>>265357332
This could be interesting. I wonder if a situation would happen where she can only charm guys and she charms a hot guy who can then charm a girl to do something, but in order to get to her is tough for a mortal to do and there for can't just fly up past everything.

It has been decided that the bee costume may be an extra costume that you can unlock by trading souls to the talking cauldron at the witches shop.

Feel free to brainstorm extra costumes. (They won't have any powers, just cosmetic)

Just how much is "too much skin"?
>>
>>265358826

Please read before posting.

The mermaid suit does let you swim.
There are four main costumes that alter your powers.
Then there are cosmetic costumes.
>>
>>265358826
That is sort of what's happening. He's just saying the extra costume will be cosmetic only.
>>
>>265358902
I think that means nipples and vagoo
>>
>>265358936
>only 4
>>
>>265359224

The project is way too ambitious as is. The focus is on platforming, powers are a secondary element.

Increasing the number of powers beyond four at this point would be detrimental to the project.

Please read the tumblr for more information about the powers, or join in on the IRC.
>>
>>265357374
Maybe the ancient sacred artifact is made out of sugar?

Also, I think if you set up a cute hydra as anything other than a walking, conjoined harem, you've missed a golden opportunity. It's not one waifu, it's seven.

...and now that this's got my brain juices flowing, someone should make a dating sim were you date a cute, seven-headed hydra, and have to juggle actives to keep the different heads from getting jealous of each other.
>>
>>265359224
4 is plenty for a project like this
>>
>>265357901
well don't forget the basics of cosmetic costumes such as.
school girl
bunny girl
animal mascot type costume where her face is showing.
whitch outfit
nurse outfit
ninja outfit
swim suit
etc.

>>265360068
whipped cream

>>265360068
Milk Candy. But it needs to be something liquid, like those souls the guy above me mentioend.

those caramel candy with the white cream middles and the vanilla tootsie rolls. also marshmallows or peeps. pop corn balls

She should have to SUCJ OFF ENEMIES UNTIL COMPLETION to heal creating a unique risk v reward system
