Blast: Game Development (15th Update!)

Post by Time on Fri Jun 05, 2009 7:53 pm

First topic message reminder :


I have been creating a small game in my spare time for the past while that is focused mostly on graphics and making it graphically appealing. I have a bit of a headstart, with 15 public releases and a blog, but this is my first real release to a well-known forum such as the GMC.

Comments:
"Wow totally amazing effects and so so amazing" - Amidos
"The graphics are superb" - RCCarThief
"I love that game! The graphic style is amazing and the gameplay is creative. Also has a great story." - Revel
"Just wanted to say that this is a great game" - A saurus1
"Very cool game! I love the effects and movement." - heyufool
"THe game was stunning" - King Chubbles
"this is awesome! i need to read that helpfile more to make a game like this one, i hope this gets featured!" - -BanditGames-
"Very nice game. Beats all the staff picks." - Pendulum_Online_Games
"Very nice! I think the graphics are great as well" - Fredrick

Storyline:
I have a storyline mostly written out, I just have a gigantic whole in the middle which I need help with. The beginning is fine, and the end has a surprise twist and all, but the middle is... non-existent. Here's the current storyline:
You are a dual-personality being that lives in an underground city led by a benevolent leader Purity. Purity is a great politician, and generally a good leader, but there seems to be something about what she does that is... off. You're name is Control, but you also have the ability to change into your other self, Rage. Control can control peoples minds and take over their bodies, but he is fairly weak. Rage is a powerful being that blasts things to pieces with his powerful darkness flames. The problem with Rage is that, well... he isn't terribly subtle, like Control. Anyways, when you were at a young age, Control became angry at another person in his class, and he took over their mind. He made them commit suicide by beating their head against a while until they died. You were discovered nearby the dead body, exhausted, and Purity's secret police took you away and began running tests on you. After turning into Rage and blowing half of the testing facility to pieces, it was decided that you would be forever imprisoned inside a giant metal sphere, one that gave no holes for you to see people that you could control, and with a metal that was resistant to your flames. This was put in the bottom-most layer of a prison, and you were forgotten. Purity continued to reign for several generations, never seeming to age. You stayed in stasis inside your metal prison, losing yourself in your meditation, also not aging.

For a long time, you sat there, your hatred for Purity festering, until one day, a young guard found your cell, and was confused. He touched the outer layer, never having seen the metal alloy that contained you, and the bottom portion of the sphere opened, having been triggered by the touch. After it opened, the guard peered inside into the darkness, to see a small creature floating inside with no arms and no legs. Control. You open your eyes, and blast him to pieces, free at last!

You fight your way through the prison, defeating its defenses using your unique powers and blowing the guards away. You eventually escape into the underground city, the giant stalactites and stalagmites reminding you of the home you haven't seen for centuries. From there, you begin your search for Purity. Along the way, you meet Death, who helps you along your way to Purity, as he is also trying to kill her, but has been unable, her power to strong for him to get a hold. You eventually find Purity, who unleashes her guards. You kill them all, and go after her and attempt to take over her mind. Her mind will not give in, for as Death had said, her power was too strong. You attack, but stop abruptly as you see her begin to change. Her gold headband and dress decay and a black robe appears. Her flesh melts away until all that is left is a skull on a black robe. It was Death himself!

From there, you engage in a large battle, eventually defeating Death. You find out that along the way, the people's love for Purity had been misled, as the city had been slowly degenerating into rubble with Death's leadership. All the same, the people are furious, and you are captured and imprisoned once again.


I have a starting scene for how you were imprisoned and freed, and I have sprites drawn up for the end. If you can help with anything for the in-between section, that would be wonderful!

heres an example. when you rotate the camera(you can) you can see all 360* of the character and the objects, and so its not like your always seeing the front like in all of the fps tutoirals, and in doom

New moves and attacks would be cool. You could earn them by progressing through the game.

Yeah, I was thinking that with each new boss a move is added to a kind of "inventory," like when you beat Norr, you get a freeze blast. Also, I could habe moves just be improved as well.

Anyways, there's a small update on the blog with a picture of an upcoming pause menu that will be released in the next update. Also, I've begun wotking out the math for the freeze move and so far I think it is going to look cool Smile
