Following Just a Person
's suggestion, I thought I could write a little update to let you know what I've been up to lately.
I am developing a full-scale RPG game in which the player will roam in a Tolkien-inspired world, unlocking various quests to be completed. You can expect the game to be "Johnnyfied" i.e. include lots of twists, strong characters, etc.
Here is a screenshot of the actual game file while I am working on it in Flash:
The image shows the game screen (black) with editing stuff all around it. The game screen includes a header (top) comprised of your character's avatar + usual stats. Just below you'll find a world map and a tiny character (at its center) to "navigate" it. The right-hand side will display the inventory + various useful buttons (not completed yet). As you can see, this is a work in progress.
The development of this game does not interfere with the Scarecrow games since it requires mostly coding at this early stage... The Scarecrow games, on the other hand, require drawing (a lot of drawing!!!!!!!!!!!)
Because eye candies won't make you fat
here is a concept image of another game that is in the pipeline. This one is a full-scale adventure game.
Most of you will notice that this character (named Sorgoth
) appears on a poster in Jack French 3. I am really in love with the story, the puzzles and the characters.
However, this game might well turn to be over-ambitious... especially since I have too much stuff on my plate already! Anyway, this game is a third-person view i.e. you control your character on-screen; as opposed to Jack French which is a first-person view i.e. you see the scenes through Jack's eyes.
As you can see, I am experiencing with a different art style that is distinct from both Jack French and Agent Scarecrow. I'd like each game to have its own design, its own 'fee' to it!
Oh! I have also done minimal progress on the Scarecrow games. Baby steps, really. But I won't include any screenshot here because I don't want to spoil anything.
That's it for now
