Asking for help (not money)
I'm looking for someone to write for the game im working on, i wanted to do it all myself bc i can't pay anyone but if you're not very busy and like making stories hmu 👉👉
Basically what I'd need u to do is create the characters and plot, I'll link to the design doc i have going so you'll know what you're working with
I'm doing the code, mechanics, art and design, and i may be able to write the dialogue once the story and everything is worked out so that's less work for you
I think yesterday i worked on my website and all i did on my game was make a temp sprite for a building and throw it in the room with rough collision checking
Super not a lot, but im still surprised ive been able to consistently work on it this long even if its just a tiny bit a day. Plus blobby as it is i at least have a slightly better idea how things are gonna look and its exciting
pff just had a moment of "omg thats funny that the room background for testing was a very saturated blue haha that's like in the game!" before realizing i did that on purpose *facepalm*
good pixel art intro from 10 years ago~
there's this 5 colour palette i saw on a palette website thingy and it was so cute and the mockup art was ADORABLE and i looked up the artist and shes made a couple rly cute looking games and idk it made me happy
even if i could pull off such a limited palette tho im indulging in a worldbuilding vision i had a while ago that's very blue heavy and apparently a lot of palettes other ppl make don't have a lot of vibrant blues hhh
damb adding some doodly trees, changing the background colour, and adding an unanimated sprite isn't much but it really makes the project feel more like a game than when it was just coloured squares wandering around a blue field of solid colour
also now that im working w actual sprites i tweaked the view settings so now everything's scaled nicely 👍
the basic failure of most all speculative fiction, both fantasy and scifi, is the failure to examine its societal pre-assumptions. they show worlds 1000 years in the future or the past or in a wholly separate universe, inhabited by people who, despite the presence of magic or hypertechnology & a completely different material circumstances, still basically live & think like 20th century westerners — and when they don't, it's virtually always shown as a moral or intellectual failing
shit forgot to image description it's pixel art of a blue tree
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
