    Hey pals.

    Starting work today on a new game.. hopefully will finish this one *looks at folder of half-finished game prototypes*... yup.

    It will be a 4-player beat em up RPG for Mobile.

    Traditional beat em up arcade games never incorporated enough RPG elements, but the gameplay is fun as fuck.

    So im gonna take that style of play, slap on really rad RPG shit like epic items and classes, talent trees, skills, etc, port to Mobile, and connect up to 4 players in randomly generated 5-minute dungeon instances.

    Unity
    Visual Studio
    C#
    Amazon AWS (GameLift, Cognito, DynamoDB, ??)
    Android (eventually iOS as well)

    more updates to come

    Sounds cool. But we'll be expecting a side-scrolling one lane MOBA PvP mode!

    That's actually a really good idea lol. Could easily add like a 3v3 MOBA one-lane mode once I get the rest of it built. Not sure how fun it would be but worth trying once it gets to that point.

    Just curious, have any of your previous projects been published? If so is there any place we can purchase these gems?

    Don't know why it wouldn't work to some extent. I'm assuming there will be a little bit of up-down movement as well as left-right. Certainly would be a fun thing to explore.

    do it big Yogr

    still going hard working on my game (i.e., one Unfinished Prototype folder that's been through 9234 iterations)

    Owlboy development cycle is both an inspiration and convenient excuse for me

    I've only ever finished one game, back in 2011. It was a Flash RPG game, and I only ever got like 1000 sign-ups and only a handful of those turned into memberships. I hosted it myself and put it up on Facebook. I paid I think $300 or so on ads, and the turn-over wasn't great, so I eventually gave up on it and took it down.

    It had a lot of cool shit in it for a Flash game. Global chat, private messaging, PvP mode with PvP gear to purchase from earning points. regular RPG stuff + inventory. I had 8 classes, and at least 6-7 skills for each class.

    All my other projects usually stall due to lack of art or free time, so I haven't gotten anything on any stores.

    But, I have high hopes for this project because:
    • Relatively easy project to build with Unity + Amazon web services
    • I have $$ to pay India/China for a ton of pixel artwork
    • Mobile app stores make it easy to get into customer hands
    • I have free time for the first time in a while, plus I'm a better programmer than I was in 2011

    I just can't get derailed by things like 1-lane MOBA integration :)

    haha. Sear, can't wait for you to finish that thing. Don't Owlboy it!

    I plan to finish this game within 6 months. Getting really serious about this one. I've always wanted to publish an RPG and most RPGs have huge scope. This has a very modest scope to it for one person.

    I would love to hear anything/everything about this, if you end up outsourcing.

    We settled on "high-res pixel art" (i.e., Owlboy) with our style. I've strongly considered outsourcing some of it just because there is so fucking much in a Metroidvania game where most areas of the game are unique. Nice thing about MOBA games is you only really need one environment/map.

    My fear with outsourcing the art would be that I'd spend money/time on a result that wasn't up to quality or struggle with communication across the language barrier.

    I had a friend who would outsource stuff to odesk / upwork.com
    He'd get a bunch of graphic work done for very little $$

    Of course he caused America to lose bigly on trade.

    could do a webplayer...

    was thinking of doing pc release on steam as well as the app stores. Finished game should definitely be playable on PC.
