Do you mind if I keep this in the back of my head for maybe a year or two down the track? :3
I’d be happy to credit the idea if I can find this thread again :)

No problem! This is just a concept. I just decided to throw this out there in the off-chance it gets picked up. Fun fact: This idea spawned from the music in jmtb02’s Idleplex.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Game Bugs

Inaccurate button machine

Something with the button machine causes it to not reflect how close to the center of the button I am pressing. Holding shift over the button gives the normal results of nice around the middle "ring" and excelent closer to the center. But sometimes I only get "good" or "hit", even when the tip of my cursor is VERY close to the center. Releasing and pressing shift fixes this, but only temporarily, and it is not predictable when it can happen. I was unable to submit a screenshot due to not being able to show where the cursor actually is, and taking a screenshot while holding shift is a little difficult. I have not tested with normal button clicks, but I doubt this bug would affect normal button clicks, or at least on a noticible level.

I may try to get a screenshot when I have the time, but to be honest, I should be working on school assignments right now.

I actually like this idea. it’s a little odd, but that’s expected in web games at this point.

Topic: Game Design / A different kind of multiplayer (Game idea)

Hello! Before I continue, please ignore the “Developer” title. The one game I made is garbage that I lost the sequel files to. Even more, I am NOT that good with game development. So, please listen and don’t say “Make it yurself!”.

Also, please no “tl;dr”. I acknowledge that being a developer is time-consuming and not a guaranteed business venture, so I at least expect SOME dedication to making this a reality. If you think it’s too long, then don’t read it and look on the forums some more for something along the lines of “Skyrim but aliens, because guns”

Something that has really grown in the game industry is teamwork. Many games allow you to play co-op with other players, and it’s sometimes expected for some game genres. But the problem is that everyone pretty much does the same thing in the end. Team Fortress 2 is a game I play a lot, but everyone pretty much follows the same objective, depending on the game mode. If you and a friend both like shooter games, this is fine. But if you like fighting platformers and your friend likes strategy, well then, I present to you my idea…

The bot and the engineer.

This is a two-player game where both players take on different roles. First off, the robot. This humanoid-shaped machination has the ability to damage and defeat enemies that roam the outside of the laboratory. your goal is making sure they don’t get in. This ranges from punching to firing projectiles, depending on what he has equipped. He can gather three things from defeated enemies: scrap metal, parts, and power. Power is what he runs on, but the other materials are for upgrading. But it can get difficult trying to upgrade yourself and create parts required from scrap metal, especially during battle. That’s why you need the help of your friend…

The engineer. This is where the strategy comes in for player two. Mr. bot drops anything he finds into a chute, which goes directly to the engineer. Now here comes the important part. Using your limited workspace, the engineer needs to make metal into parts, and then parts into modules, or use parts to upgrade current modules, or use unique parts (Parts that the engineer cannot make) to give upgrades to the robot itself. The robot has a few module spaces, so it is up to the engineer to determine what is best for the robot. Once the engineer has a module available, an upgrade to apply, or needs to take a module to upgrade, the bot must stand on the workspace pad near the lab. This machine works quickly to do any service requested by the engineer, and the process of adding or changing takes only a matter of seconds.

It is this balance in combat and management that encourages good communication while being able to focus mainly on the given task. Not everyone who plays a fighting game want to hit the pause button and click the upgrade button a few times or re-arrange stuff.

Following this specific concept is not mandatory. YOU are the developer. YOU have the control. You could combine a action game and a dress-up game. I don’t care, I just wanted to give something to the developing community to use and possibly pursue. All I really expect is actual time and effort put into it. It shouldn’t be three cubes with no music or background or anything beyond a three-color palette. I might even make this, who knows? I would just be unable to create a over-the-web game and it would have to be two players sitting beside each other behind the keyboard. Or maybe one has the keyboard and the other the mouse? Maybe…-goes off into even more rambling while you lose the rest of your interest in what is being said-

I am about to do that too. Since the only game I have really isn’t all that great, and the sequel, which was a lot better than the original, is dead from stencyl updates, i’m about to create something new.

Topic: Game Design / What makes a great idle game?

along with the replies above, here are some things I prefer in Idle games:
Interactivity: Sitting back and seeing your “money” total or something increase isn’t very fun. At that point, it’s more like an office job with neat graphics. There should be something the user can do to increase income, improve upgrades, etc. This could be simply a button to add more moola, or a building that has the user research upgrades by playing a minigame, which may be the only way to get those upgrades.
Customization: sometimes “You won” isn’t enough. options to change clothing color, make buildings out of prettier materials, or whatever else you can think of will make your user’s experience a little more personal.
Good music and graphics: Just do it, please.
A goal: Take a look at idle games already out there. Idleplex has the goal of “You’re going to build the world’s largest idle game mosaic… with goats”. There has to be something the user can work towards. Sometimes, players don’t have enough imagination to create their own goals. “Idle” doesn’t have to mean “Endless”
Cheese: Because why not?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] "Nothin' but my sword" Challenge!

What is this you may ask? Its a way to make your gameplay a bit more unique! How do you do this challenge? Well, let me explain the steps, rules, and guidelines.
How to do the challenge:
Go to floor one of the tower.
Choose ONE character! You may put some in the backup group, but only for them to gain XP!
Every time you finish a floor, click “next floor”
see how far you go before your guy is defeated!
Rules:
Only ONE character between the entire challenge! you may not switch out your one character with another at any point.
The only items you can use are the gear you have equipped and items for stamina.
If you use a item other than food or gear, switch/add characters, go to town for something then go to the floor that’s next, or anything else that is not allowed by the challenge, you are considered “Defeated”

Basically, if you break a rule, the floor you are on is your record, even if your guy is alive!

What is your record for a character? Mine is the last room of floor 10 with Alexander(level 16 by the time he got there) until he got scorched to death.

Topic: Cloudstone / Some Gripes/Suggestions

People probably have said this stuff before. I know for a fact that some of the stuff i said has been said before. I am just saying it because i want to show the game creators that i agree with this.
-Easier contracts: With the amount of energy I can gather, it is just not worth it. I cannot get that amount of different supplies. Even if i can, i don’t have an elephants memory. I won’t know what area has the most trees or creatures of a certain type. I run in, defeat, and win. I don’t do math while playing, that why i play after i do school.
-Increased energy capacity: I know this cannot get you energy faster, or can allow you to get it for free, but it reduces energy loss from time. If you get 1 energy every 10 minutes (I don’t know how long it takes, could you add that too?), and with the capacity of 30 energy, you will stop gaining energy from waiting after only 5 hours at the most. I can’t go back every 5 hours to play. I have to sleep and do school sometime!
-Disguise feature: I want my armor to look like another piece i have. Its that simple.
-More freebies!: When i am out of energy, i can’t do much. So i don’t play until i get more. You do mwant us to play more often, don’t you guys?
-Energy from coins: I could have thoisands and thousands of coins, and not be able to do anything at all. Come on guys. It takes more energy to enter higher level areas than lower level right?
-More information/ easier to find information: There is information that i cannot find out, or it takes forever to find it. Its a lot of little stuff, so i cannot post it all here.
Re-read old messages: When i complete a storyline mission, i may want to go back and read what they said again. I mean, what happens if you accidentaly skip it. The storyline is part of what makes the game fun.
No-energy experience: I don’t care if its is tiny amounts. give us something to do!
I will make another post if i think of more stuff.

I am sorry that i have not been keeping up with this topic. BUT a friend of mine offered to pick up the game. all future posts will be from APenguinKing2. thank you
the game will be continued, but i may not be able to go on every day. sorry.
so…
cazdingo1995:
As you dig, you see something stick out in front of you. you try to pry it out, but it seems impossible to pull it from the ground. other than that, you don’t seem to find anything interesting.

MeshMusican2/Shandys:
You get:
A map
10 Gold
Shovel
Aedan:
you dig down. about half-way you find something shiny! it looks like one gold piece, but it has a LOT of rust on it. you look at the date and find that it was from 30 years ago! you bring it to a nearby coin shop and receive 3 gold pieces!

zzzip:
You dig down and find some plastic building bricks! YAY! LETS BUILD A DINOSUAR! OH NO A BLOCKY UFO! NOW HERE COMES…uh…i guess i should get back to work…
you get one gold from your “blockosaur”

speedy:
You dig down pretty far. you were almost about to call it a day when you see something move in the corner of your eye. you look to find…a snail. say, he’s pretty cute! Wonder if someone would want him…
a kid across the street buys the snail for one gold. he named him “snaily” _

shandys(Digging):
You dig down pretty far. you look to your left and you see a little black and white line. you can’t seem to get it unstuck, and you are too tired to dig over there…maybe tomorrow.

MeshMusican(Digging):
you dig down to find…nothing. ironically, you replace the dirt and find a gold coin. huh, how could you have missed that?
you pick up one gold coin.

That is all.
oh yea, license prices went down today, so GET READY TO DIG IN THE kids area.

Speedy250:
You dig at 3E and find nothing, but you felt the shovel scratch something to the left. Maybe you will check tomorrow

zzzip50:
As you dig down, you see a bit of blue, red, and green on your left…you thought it was the soil at first, but something nags you to dig there the next day

Cazingo1995:
You dig down, but you came across nothing. well…nothing except a couple of cuts and bruises from accidentally falling in while digging. oh well, as long as you don’t end up with the taste of dirt all day tomorrow, you will be fine!

Aedan210:
You dig and dig and dig and dig and dig and dig and…where was I? oh yea! you didn’t find anything…sorry

hero122:
As you dig around (With no success) you smell something sweet. the smell is not two strong, but you can tell it’s nearby. Other than that, you seem to not find anything of interest.

Sorry you guys didn’t find anything…but i guess its hard to find anything big in your own backyard. Don’t worry though, license prices are dropping soon and you may be able to find better treasures sooner than before.

Sorry, you can only dig a plot once every RL day without aids like energy drinks and minerbots.
because, believe it or not, those plots are big and take a lot of energy to dig up

Sorry. D: I forgot.

No harm done to me, but your neighbor wasn’t so lucky. but I’m sure its ok :D
