The Ultimatum DEMO#2! 60% complete

Postby Lordace » Wed Oct 31, 2007 11:11 pm

Hello everyone, as part of my joining the Forums, My first game is basically a game where you are on your ship, a terrible storm comes in and literally snaps your boat in half, with your first mate, Johnny, on that half. Johnny has been your best since you were four years old and you sadly have to tell him bye during the terrible storm that destroys your boat. You wash up on the shores of Nezoma, a hustling and bustling city full of kind folk and yet there is a part where a terrible plague has taken place. You will go through anything, even death, to find out if Johnny and the crew lived on to die another day.

This is in basic medieval times, you know, swords, gold coins, the works.
What you can do:
You have a choice to do either of three things:
1)Completely start your life over
2)Start a new life in the lands you wash up on and continue to find your friend and crew.
3)Try to find out if Johnny is still alive and try to make it back home with him or you two settle in the lands you end up in.

There are three cheats that can be randomly found *inside* the game. You learn them by talking to people and randomly finding certain phrases that are the cheat codes. You'll know where to enter them in the very begining of the game when you meet a dude surrounded by four flames. The mega cheat can only be found by completing all three story choices (can be completed in one game)

Lost's completion percent: 60%
Currently working on: Kandorm Kingdom
Current part completion percent: 50%

EDIT1: I forgot to mention, (this is embarassing) I don't have sound on my computer so I may have some trouble getting a soundtrack and sound effects.
Demo #2 released!!! Heres the link
http://mihd.net/kp31b7
Also if you happen to find the one cheat mentioned somewhere in the demo, do not tell others..all the cheats are a secret.

Food needing. Have some "food" in inventory and everytime you sleep or after 2:00 hours you "food" leaves the inventory.

Also if its based in medieval times you need castles.

Ok thanks. Speaking of castles I forgot all about them. I'm going to try to incorporate a King in the game, possibly two with separate kingdoms.

I didn't want to say anything to not let you down, but your game is rather boring. :/
Let me explain better:
-Too little action
-Fights are way too easy
-The towns are very confusing, you should add some real quests in each town and make every NPC participate on it (or at least a lot of them)
-You level up TOO fast (I mean, the dogs in the forest don't attack you and still give 200 EXP!)
-Needs a soundtrack badly! The sound effects add a LOT to the game
-You should add some mystery to the game, everything is so well-explained that I feel like I'm walking in a darkened cave with an enlightened path leading to the exit when playing your game (not sure if you got what I mean)
-Add details to everything, they enrich the game. :)

Don't take this offensively, please. I'm just trying to help.

Ok. I understand what you mean by its too easy and all but heres an explanation for each:

Soundtrack: My computer has no sound so I have a hard time getting sound into the game. Sound will come before scripting, which is last. Also I have to get the music on my ipod to even hear the music before putting it into the game.
Too little action: I'm getting to that part. I'm going to add much more roads in between towns and a plague town where plague infected people come and attack you because the town was left in anarchy.
Easy fights: Well yeah I know that. Its basically that way for a bit until I finish all the maps. Then I go back to edit the experience changes etc.
Too little quests: I add in quests at the very end, remember, this is just a demo. The main quest however, is made as I go along. Trust me, much much more quests will be added.
mystery: I know what you meant by that. I'm not too experienced with mysteries, however, there is a twist at the end. How can I add more mystery to my game?
add details: If you mean by like pressing action key near furniture,signs, etc., Yeah I had that in mind and am working on it as we speak

Don't worry, I never take reviews offensive. (Unless they are directly insulting me)
Thank you for playing the demo and reviewing it.

Btw did you see anything that you liked in the game? Also if you found the one cheat revealed in the demo can you tell me? That way I can hide it a little better. But don't say the cheat, just say if you found it or not.

I don't like cheats. :) And I haven't found any.
Well, to add mystery, you need the following basically:
-A key character to the game disappear (and many little clues lead you to what happened to him/her)
-Riddles (can involve the disappeared character)
-You find a note or read somewhere else about a conspiration among your allies
These were examples, but you can make anything you think is mysterious.
By the way, I liked the part that you jump from the ship and get to the sand area, it caused me a very good first impression of the game. I think maybe the first town could be a beach-town type, like the one in Final Fantasy 7 (if you have played it already). ;)

A key character hmm...since Johnny already disapeared, I'm going to add a person who knows the exact location of him, but that person disapears while you're on a quest for him to tell you where hes at.

A hint: You don't have to tell everybody about the whole plans of your game. A part of the mystery is keeping this kind of information to yourself. :)

Just about all of them now that I try it again. Do you have it so you have to hit enter to exit buildings or walk over?

Its enter to walk in, and enter to walk out for all buildings. I did that because I don't like making open houses you can just walk into. Instead I made separate maps for each house/building.

I like the hit enter to walk in, but I suggest making it so you just have to walk into it to walk out. That was very confusing for me.

Having trouble getting time in so this game may not be finished until Late November..yeah..anyway I really want to get this game done then again I don't want to rush it. So when it comes out, feel free to tell me how sloppy it is or quick paced. Doesn't bother me if you say my game is bad, just don't insult me and we won't have a flame war.

Well the enter thing will work, but it would be a bit hard for the maps cause you wouldn't know which places your supposed to hit enter to enter, you would be hitting enter a lot trying to find the path to the next area.

To get to the next map if its not in a building, its just walk to the end of the path and your there.

AND YOU THOUGHT THIS THREAD WAS DEAD!!! MWHAHAHA


I decided to plug in that crapbox of a computer that had all kinds of problems with it (no sound) and plug a flashdrive in there and take all my projects and put them on that flashdrive and now I have this project back. I'm going to finish it up, working out any bugs, and add a whole lot more to it. Hopefully no errors come along the way.
