2 New Games in the making...

Postby Oisin_Successfullo » Tue Jun 09, 2009 8:44 pm

We here at AMC Gamez are proud to announce that we are hard at work at 2 new games, Rupert Bane Lee and W2PShopping: the 001 game.
Rupert Bane Lee sees the titular Rupert through 8 different 'Worlds' on his way to save the president from evil snake king, Slithers.
A demo will be online soon featuring just some of the brilliant levels.
W2PShopping: The 001 game, on the other hand, is top-secret and it won't be a 'proper' game.
It'll either be called Write2Play 001 or W2PShopping: The 001 game.

Aye Caramba!!!
Focus on one game at a time, if I were you.
Besides, got any more plot details for RBL?

Okay I've decided to focus centrally on RBL.
The plotline is fairly simple, Rupert must journey through various different 'worlds' and uncover enough power to enter the Fortress of Evil where Slithers, the 3-headed snake king, resides.
However this is the 1st in the series and each game features different plots; the 2nd one (RBL: World's Demise!!) sees Rupert have to save the world from getting destroyed... within 3 days!
The 3rd (RBL: Time Travelz) sees Rupert needing to travel through time etc.
More details coming soon...

Yeah, not to discourage you, but each of the plots sounds very weak to me.
Let's start off with the first one:

That is cliched. Gather items to get powerful, then confront the source of all evil. Not a very good plot.
As I've mentioned to people with similar plots, try a twist or two, or make a few subplots involving different characters. E.g. while 'uncovering enough power', the bad guy also grows more powerful than you.

I won't say so much about the other two, as I take it that you're primarily focusing on the first one, but you also need to work on those plots. They're pretty much overused, and if they aren't, they're a little boring.
Not that I plan to demoralize you, but change that and your game will be pretty awesome.

I agree with you... currently the plot isn't very good.
However as soon as my team and I can release more info you will realise the value in them.

I can't guarantee that. But I'm willing to give chances. Any screenshots?

Unfortunately it is policy that we don't reveal screenshots until late in development.
This way nobody can copy us.
Then when we realease screens we can release many...building the excite.

Yes, and also the skepticism.
Fair enough, just release plot updates. Trust me, if people copy the plot, you'll know, because I'll be giving them 1s and 2s for that.

I'm sorry our policy decrees that info isn't released until later, sorry.
Soon early artwork should be available though.

Voila! Here is a VERY early screenshot of the ‘Where’s Rosie’ minigame and a image of the items. Also includes early logo etc. What do you think?

What he said, albeit with a tinge of sarcasm.
Good that you have customs, but frankly they look a bit shoddy. Try taking some time off to edit them pixel-by-pixel, or use some pre-mades.
And your forest background (love apples, but) is very repetitive. Add some rocks, fallen logs, mushrooms etc. here and there, else you're just making an apple orchard.
By the way, consider making some custom enemies.

Haha, I like the orange desert eagle - very cool.
But yes - I agree with MIV it's quite repetitive and a few more custom resources wouldn't hurt. ;)

Looks pretty substandard to me, and more like a Five Seven. Nonetheless, nice try with the resources, but to get a 9, you have to do better than that. :D

I appreciate all the thoughts users have given me.
I will be working double-fold to make custom layouts etc.
I'm glad you like some of the items.
Remember the image was only a very early one (which I should not really be displaying, policies etc, but what the heck!)
The two artists on the AMC Gamez team (Jonathon Skylark and myself) are currently negotiating layout change.
Thanks for your support.
If I can an updated image of 'Where's Rosie' will be up on this forum by Friday.
Thanks.
