ya I know what you mean, when I was in high school used to be in a video game designing class, it was a lot hared than it looked.-_-" but I'm glad you chose doing what you wanted to do and didn't succumb to peer pressure, from what i read in the comments they seemed to really want you to take part.
Yeah, there were the people that were very supportive about it and then there were the people who considered it more carefully and gave me reasonable advice v 3 v I did appreciate the enthusiasm though
Some guy named Mel. He was obviously not a professional game designer, a passionate creator more like. But he seemed honest and sincere, so I would've been happy to collaborate with him. He called his production thing AnimaJumpgames.
how much of the SoS story have you got written/composed? I would postpone the RPG if there isn't that much to go on as of yet, even if it is risking that the same person withdraws the offer in the future. My thinking is that if s/he is serious about wanting to make a game, s/he will stick with you as you get more of SoS done.
Damn... the temptation is quite big here! e - e Though I have played a couple of those lovely indie games made with the RPG maker, like Ib (which was totally awesome) and I am sure I would go nuts for your game!! ...but... urgh, work... so much more work to go on with? > 3 < I would really love to see the animated series to go on and I know the next chapter will be so AWESOME, hm... maybe Mel can wait a little bit until you're free for something new again? 9 - 9 It's a really hard decision...
I've decided not to collaborate with him (yet) I'm ill prepared and my time is valuable > o< And I shouldn't take on anymore work, I've already got two projects I'm working on and that's time consuming enough =[ Thanks SH <3 9 u9
*noms ur face* Aaawww, it is good to know you were able to decide on such a tempting idea, but I am sure you are totally right! First things first and that actually is your own work!! (which I love to death, yeay!) To be honest, from what you tell us and what I know, I could have imagined that ANOTHER project would be way to much for you. That is not a matter of skills though, it is simply a matter of how much a full time worker in your age should probably handle and since I am working in a health related business, I really know what that means and what shitty stuff can happen if you exhaust your body and mind to much. I think you made the better choice, take good care honey! And you are most welcome!
Well this is quite tempting... but I'd be careful if I were you. And that is, I would ask him/her for the projects they (as a Development Team) had finished, and take a look at them. Just to be sure they are an active and genuine team, later you can decide wether or not to join them. I'ts important to be sure about the seriousness of this team so your story and your efforts are kept safe. Then is the legal stuff too. I don't think there would be any problem since you won't recieve benefits from it, but still... it won't hurt anyone if you investigate more about the possible legal annoyances (Just imagine the game becomes succesful and it's noticed by Nintendo... would there be a problem there?)
On the other hand, as far as I know (wich is not too much xD) RPG Maker is not a very dificult tool to use, it won't be a problem if you decide to make your own game. Either way I'd love to play it
Thanks for your advice, it truly does help! That's what I thought about too, after seeing the trailer for the RPG maker I thought it looked very easy to get the hang of myself x-D So maybe someday I could purchase the application and play around with it. It'll be nicer that way too, since I could work at my own pace and make the decisions for the final outcome of things.
I did ask the guy if he'd done any previous games and if I could take a look at his work, he replied he hadn't done any games before. This honestly left me worried because I was hoping he'd have more experience > o< Thanks again =]
I would at least think about it and ask lots of questions. I don't think you'd be making much profit since the game will be based on an existing series. But whatever you do I wish you the best and I know it will be amazing
DO IT. people only DREAM of an moment like this!!!! you could really improve your skills too, they might have good software for your art to really pop out or something! (even though it already does XP lol!)
i'd say give it a shot, and this is the reason why i say so: 1. You have the opportunity in working with a team, a experience that can help you learn how to work in a group down in your life 2. It gives you not just experience in how well you work in groups but it builds up your experience in major projects. This is something a lot of art directors in studios will look at if you were to apply to one. 3. I know that your animation may be something you look forward to finishing, but you don't need to be entirely dictated to it as in you cannot work on anything else, you can always go back to your animation, but how many offers like this will come up for you to accept or deny ya know...
I say go for it, even if it comes out looking like a old school pokemon game, it could lead into something big, pffft i mean look at minecraft and how big that game got to be. The choice is yours and i don't think either one is a wrong choice, but whichever you choose people who love you will support you anyway they can. Me included! <33
It sounds really good, but i would propose to be wary of people who have bad grammar. The whole note doesn't seem very professional so i would proceed with caution. Otherwise it would be so exciting if SoS were to become a game!
