WELCOME to HBgames...
Apologies ahead of you reading this post, I don't want to seem like im
trolling or running your game down, trust me, I KNOW how much time
game making consumes and hard work that goes into making them.
These are just my thoughts...
OKAY.. here's MY 1st thought.. I CAN'T PLAY IT!
right.. rant over.. you failed to state its for "rpg maker 2003"..
I was totally looking forward to playing this until I ran into that
problem.. you want people to see
the true power of RTP? what's that all about? your game must
have something pretty special in it or about it in every way
to make people stop and think/say "WOW! that looks amazing".
So.. it might sound like im digging at you but you should re-make
this in rmxp.. you can do a LOT more with rmxp than 2003.. other
than play videos.. but there's a script for that.
Glancing through your game's file folders.. Here's a few suggestions
that I think if you want your game to stand out more than others you
should think about..
1. You should get your own music made for this game, f.f. dissidia? its
hardly original, also your looking at copyright infringement if you release
this as pay to play and not freeware.
Here's a link to a page that someone is making game music for a small price,
I can honestly say she is really good at song making, I've had her make me
17 original tracks for my game so far, all amazing, infact.. i'm having her make
ALL the music in my game, i'm guessing around 50 tracks in total.viewtopic.php?f=220&t=75107
2. Original art work.. maybe you could get someone else onboard who's an artist
and could do original graphics for you. You already stated ur mates good at pixel
art so thats half the hunt over.
Anyhows.. judging by the two screenies they seem ok.. maybe a few more screenshots
would be nice showing a few more mapped areas, a town maybe, so people can see how
complex your maps are.
SOD IT! im gona go hunt for rpg maker 2003 and play it.. i'll be back with a review, no trolling
