Welcome.
I intend to make my own 3D platform collect-a-thon game on Unity. While this is happening quite frequently, I intend to do this in an entirely different way. I want this game to be hand-drawn and animated. When I am able to upload art on DeviantART, I will release concept art.
When that is done, please help bring support and suggestions with you. And do feel free to upload your own art. When more development is done, I want this game to be something I and you all want to play. Whatever you are best at doing, please bring your talent and skill for this game. Music, writing, art, engine editing, programing, all that will be necessary for this game, and feel free to upload. I also am trying to master my skill of creating a game on a computer.
Thanks for your support. smilie

^ Your on board. Welcome! smilie
Also of note is that DeviantART finally is letting me submit drawings. In only a short time I will be able to upload my concept art. A word of warning: if you have a tiltable screen, you may need to tilt it back some, my scans are terribly thin. smilie

Main Character

He is finalized!! Feel free to leave suggestions.

This seems like a good platformer. The main character should have some more features though. Maybe hair?? Or something that makes gameplay different or unique. I have ideas just from looking at the art. I think the game should have a simple story. Nothing groundbreaking. The story should be more complex than most collect a thons though. Comedy would work well.

Sounds good! Thanks for the insight. I will try to continue working on the main character, to make him as appealing as possible. Also, You have my permission, to continue writing the story.

Unfortunally, no time soon. Sorry, but this is honestly just stage one. Gotta start somewhere.

That's a good idea. I might add some of that into the script. Once more of the game shifts together we can decide on a title.

Hey i have a idea. There could be arcade machines hidden in levels that make you play a 16 bit mini level and once you beat it you get one of whatever you will be collecting in the game. I made a tune for one of the 16 bit bonus levels https://soundcloud.com/mr-atta...15/16-bit-tune1

^ Yes! of course you may! absolutely! smilie smilie. Could you make the first 16 bit tune just a little longer? And I've got ideas for the retro style levels. One level springs to mind. So the level starts of side-view, but as you move foraword towards the edge of the screen, it is revealed to be 3D. So one of the levels with be 3D, but still have retro 8-bit graphics. And this bonus level that I just described will have platforming reminicent of those bonus levels of Super Mario Sunshine. Does this sound good?

Yeah. I can make it longer. That is a good idea for a level. I have the story all put together. The evil Panda known as Master Nukpana is set on finding the power crystals that shattered into pieces and were hidden around earth. The main character finds Nukpana searching with his goons and finds out his plans and like all protagonists do, he sets out to find them before Nukpana does. Nukpana is pronounced, Nuke-pa-na. The name is evil in a other lanugage. I can change anything about the story if you want. mega spyro you are free to edit the story

Quote: Drawdler
I don't know if this was unpopular- it seemed like it was on this Ninty forum where I posted it, though maybe it was just because of Ninty bias- so here goes:

Mario games should REALLY get rid of their life system and retool coins to have some other use.



Quote: Drawdler
Quote: Sesshomaru75
Why? lol

Because Game Overs are pointless when they just send you back to the title screen, which is how they are in Mario games now. Also, once you rack up a good amount of lives, it makes collecting coins all the time feel kind of unsatisfying because you're not getting anything useful for them. (...And they're not really satisfying anyway, because like I said, Game Overs have no real punishment so 1-Ups aren't very rewarding.)

Edit: to elaborate, here's what I said to another friend who asked about it-
Quote:
For the life system- just don't. Drop it. Add infinite lives and checkpoints in levels instead. More and more modern games have done that because classic life systems are more of an inconvience than anything. If they don't do anything aside from sending you to the title screen, they're pointless; if they set you back to the start of the world or by a level or something, they force you to repeat even more stuff and that postpones being able to practice the section where you're actually stuck, becoming frustrating; so I think it takes a unique gimmick or very specific design to actually get use out of a classic lives system, and I don't think I've actually seen a good demonstration of that.

I'm glad the system has gone out of style and I don't understand why Mario still uses it.

Shovel Knight has my favourite death system: you have infinite lives so no need to worry about finding 1-ups or the inconvinience of a Game Over, you have a chance to earn back the gold you drop from dying (so it gives you a second chance, and it's a setback that's noticeable but not annoying), but if you die again then the gold is permanently lost, so you are punished for dying repeatedly. (Unless you exit to the title lol)


This. I will work this into the game, so platforming will be so much more satisfying.

He is dissapointed that the main character has the spotlight, and vows that he will be the star of the next game. Woah! I'm gettin' ahead of myself!

Final Boss

Nukpana the evil Panda Lord, main villian of the game.

Arcade

http://bman24360.deviantart.co...2F57042803&qo=8

http://bman24360.deviantart.co...2F56962266&qo=1

The main character found in the arcade machine.

The 1st Boss

Ideas.

There will be a 4 health life meter. When you die, you will lose a certain amount of collectables (the quality of notes in Banjo-Kazooie) and respawm (think of respawning in Mushroom Men.) You can refind the collectables rescattered through the level.

Collecting the main item is similar to the "Item Get" image above. You do a little happy dance and touch it, raise it into the air and it dissappears in a ray of light.
The oppisite is said for Nukpana, when he touches it, it dissappears into a dark purple mist.

opinions?
