so ummm, im gonna remake one of my old games that i never finished
it was originally a rpg where you avoid stuff to not get fat but i thought it was bad and hard to make so im going to make it a v-pet/tamagotchi-like game, then i scrapped that, so now is a platformer game with pokemon and furrys, and a goodra protagonist
feel free to dm me to help me with it i guess, whenever you want
anyways ima send devlogs here, stay tuned for updates
reminder this is now a platformer
you know what? fuck it, ima make a hard platformer with a goodra protagonist
So if were to understand, you were trying to make a RPG sim and were asking for help. only to change your mind 16 hours later.
I feel a RPG sim similar to V-pet/tamagotchi is a difficult thing to make (assuming this is at least your second project) but it’s an interesting idea to dive deeper in.
though one note is there’s already a similar game: Chub, Chomp, Chill just as a heads up.
but if a platformer is something you wanna make then all i’ll say about difficult platformers is these notes:
Make it difficult but fair (it is kinda a cheap trick to have a very hard section only to have a developer trick to pass it by easily, i know some mario makers are guilty of this and it won’t do you any good. have a challenge that you can tackle on the same level as your players)
Make retries quick and snappy (no one likes to wait whenever they lose, they want to jump back into the action to try again, the faster the timer from a death to retry the better. look at games like Super Meat Boy/ Celeste)
I can’t help directly but i hope this assists all the same.
alr thanks, this should help me
I’d love to help you with your first project. What did you have trouble with exactly?
well, i cant do sprites, i need help with composing, and i need a coder
