Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / CAPITALIST PROPAGANDA

So, It’s like this game, but all the money you make is taken by the government, then distributed among all players who logged in that day equally. It’s a race of attendance.

Doesn’t need to be related to the game. Just anything that allows people to get a picture of what your skills or the game is like

Topic: Collaborations / This is not really a collab topic, but rather a question

I found a few a couple years ago. So yes it’s possible.

It’s up to your art. Show us your port. Speaks much better than words.
If it’s something programmers can’t make, but they’d like to use then You’ll get a partner.

Topic: Collaborations / Creating an online server for pes6

Hate to break this to you but i assume you’re not equipped to be able to do this if you get tired from searching.
That’s probably the easiest 1% of the task?

You’re way underestimating the workload.

Topic: Collaborations / Character Artist for Visual Novel/Adventure Game

oh, not unclothed, i just mean in terms of character design.

I’m not sure if any of them want to take up something like this, but it probably won’t hurt if you talk to them
I think someone in there did kawata shoujo or something. so they’ve got a reasonable pool of experience.

All i’m doing is giving you some choices, I can’t help you any further.
I’m only doing this because it looks interesting and i’d probably enjoy playing it.

Again, best wishes, and best of luck.

Topic: Collaborations / Project Cardgame

Hmm Good response.

What do we get for drawing the cards? like, if we make an account, would we get the cards that we drew?
I might be interested in a couple weeks, After i finish this contest entry and the game i’m working on.

And most importantly, how much boobage is allowed on these cards?

Hey, while I do sort of understand where you’re coming from, i’d still suggest a little portfolio of what you can do.

Good luck!

Topic: Galaxy Online / Wallet Warriors are killing this game

If you guys played the First GO, it’s even worse.

Just be glad us free guys are worth a damn. perhaps some decoy killers, but that’s something.

As someone who played it since the start, I’ll tell you how much IGG cares.
During the server merge, if players have the same name the higher ranked one gets to keep it.
They somehow made a “mistake” I was renamed Aeon1, even though my rank was way higher than the other Aeon.
and you know how they solved it? went back in to correct things? offered compensation? no, they just threw me some MP and told me to change my name (MP was the cost of the name change.)

And that’s pretty much the BEST experience i had with them. they’re better at broken promises such as the ship design contest winners being added to GO2 (Been years?)

Don’t even get me started on the fishy stuff, let’s just leave it at
Every time there’s a huge war, the real winner is IGG

lots of people did it, some succeeded and became a company.

Hardest part is assembling your army. How do you plan to get the team together?

provided you magically have the right people with the right mindset, still quite difficult.

look at every name in the credits.
Huge, no?

tell me as a manager, what would you go if your entire team of artists gets a simultaneous art block?

Topic: Collaborations / Artist.

Nice stuff, especially for someone who isn’t in college yet. i find it impressive. You also know how important a portfolio is.

you appear confident and motivated, especially with those strong colors, but as a fellow artist I would like to recommend you practice more drawing from observation.

Good luck with your Collab, May i suggest you start by look for something smaller to make, just to get to know people then do something bigger once you find the right team mates?

Topic: Game Design / A Nice Game Idea

Every time an ad starts playing sounds, i start a duck hunt. and i won’t stop until i find the damn AD
The longer it takes, the more hatred will be engraved into my brain regarding it.

At one point i will take drastic measures such as entering a convenience store, and putting other brands of toothpaste in-front of said brand that had been bothering me.

TAKE THAT YOU SHAMELESS SENSELESS ADVERTISER! I’VE BURIED YOUR TOOTHPASTE UNDER YOUR COMPETITOR’S.
SO THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH OTHER UNRELATED STUFF FIRST BEFORE THEY CAN PICK UP YOUR STUFF!!!

Revenge is sweet.

Ads can be a decal on your car, or cute items. or just a billboard.
what’s nice about it is gives you money, so you can go and hire cooler people

Topic: Game Design / Realtime Multiplayer Shmup - Work in progress

nice, might design a spaceship or two for you if you want me to

I think you should make the turning radius wider so it doesn’t become a circlefest
or try adding some randomness to the gun fire angles, tracers might look nice too (if it doesn’t eat up the resources)
and add some reaction time to the bots because there’s nothing you can do to shake them.

You might want to keep this topic as a reference and look at it after your teenage years.

Congratulations on finding an artist. and good luck on the project.

Topic: Game Design / A Nice Game Idea

I agree, it does give you an advantage, However the best items should be obtained by playing the game, not just by dropping a bunch of money.

For an MMORPG
Game shop NPC < Charged irl money < Boss drops

This is so players feel, hey i can be the best without paying money. aka: I’m not being “cheated” into a money trap.
Money helps the game, but like jason says, plastering it all over the game just says i’m in this for just the money.

Also, paying for everyday items is terrible. An RF online server reduced the drops rates of everything so much that it’s impossible to break even. and you have to charge to buy potions.
Atlus online’s game Knights of the sky is full of abandoned accounts because you had to pay to refill mineral mines at one point, either that or the game stops for you.

Both are pretty much abandoned at this point.

Now ADs is a little different. what most bad advertisers seem to not realize is there’s a difference between looking and seeing.

Topic: Game Design / How to attract more players

Think of the process of finding games to play.

How do you appeal to new players?
How do you make players return?

I think people look at the icon first, if it says what they’re looking for, they’ll give it a try.
I personally look for boobs. but everybody’s different.

Then there’s the ratings…

Now about that game of yours, It’s nice and actually well made, the problem is i’ve played a bit and then stopped and i have no reason to play it again. I didn’t know how many levels there are (no sense of how far i am from completing it) there’s nothing for me to unlock, i don’t really feel i’ve learned skills and techniques, and I am barely acknowledged for my actions.

Now, if you wish to sell your soul for the devil, I suggest you look up some gaming psychology that makes games addictive, but not fun. some methods there are completely evil.

Regarding the models, I do think LoL is doing it right.
Money gives you no actual advantage ingame, just skins people drool over.

Also Jaecks. Take a look at some game design books.
