Title: WIP: Tales Mania game
Post by: mlptfan on June 10, 2014, 03:59:19 pm
I've been working non-stop with the core part of our game. It's a simple design with endless possibilities. One of our members at this board has provided me with invaluable resources of Tales stuff. That's an incredible help. Later, when the game can be tested, I will allow all of you to make up your own level design and characters, if you like.

Here is a little Bon Bon from the game:

In about a week, I will have something more to show :)

Eh, Bon Bon needs to be about 200% more fatter in my opinion.  ;) But its cool to hear that your working on a game mlpfan, dark and I were just chatting about a hypothetical SNES inspired Tales RPG that would blend in elements of the Dream Valley cartoon and the like. BTW, what type of game are you going for? Platformer, RPG, sport game, ect?

80 She looks AMAZING, mlptfan! If I ever got my hooves on a game making software I could use, I'd make all the Tales games in the world! And I shall look forward to seeing the rest of what you have to show us!

SNES would definitely be the best to capture a Tales game! (great graphics hardware and huge palette and HDMA effects, and sequenced wave music and sound)

I have to aim towards the easiest to produce game. That's why I choosed pixel art instead of bigger HD art. The game engine I have built can support a range of complex stuff. It can be expanded later to include more. I would say sport game and platformer.

I create all my game making software myself, so I can target any specific ideas of my choice. The only thing I am limited by is time. But I got a pretty good schedule right now. This game is definitely being done.

Yeah when are we getting more details?! BB looks perfect though. :)
Thanks! Yea, I really wanted to wait until I could provide more details. In about a week or so, I hope to have the code idea running. It is quite exciting to have gotten so far in so little time. This forum was created once I knew I could complete my game idea :)

She's adorable!

Sounds like a fun project.  I'll be looking forward to seeing your game when it's complete!

Yep, one week has passed. Today I have been working the whole day (my brain is fried). Sadly, the amount of work I have done the entire week doesn't add up to any product at the moment. However, it is adding up to become JUST the way I want it!

So bear with me, a couple of more days, and I will have something to show!

I am working on the most important thing in the game, which is the personality of the pony you will be. Basically, the pony need to look good, so that is my main target.

Next update will be just before the weekend :)

So I am currently drawing the ponies in different angles. Here's Bon Bon. The hair is very complex. Takes hours to do each angle. So expect the next update to be next week.

All the girls have different hair on each side of their face, making it extra hard as no mirror can be performed, and must be drawn manually instead.

Bon Bon = beautiful. Very good work fan! ;D

Sure is! *nods* I can't even begin to fathom how much hard work mlptfan is doing. Keep up the good work!

Could you link a pic of her?

Maybe if I download it and blow it up to full screen I could see the cutie.

I have to finish all the basic pony drawings before it can be put into the game. I leave the hip emblem and tiny details until we know the game will actually work (instead of wasting valuable time). Then stuff like color and emblem will be customizable by you guys (for ponies created outside of the main cast).

Post by: Notes on June 22, 2014, 01:25:45 pm
I see. Sounds like quite the process! But you've prioritized and reasoned through the process and weeded out any work that would be wasted. Good. I can't wait to see that you put up next.

Ooh, this is super exciting! I can't wait to hear more about it... and hopefully play it eventually!

We have had some problems with electricity as of lately. It rained into our main power house, and we have to replace quite a lot. I have been limited to computer time because of this. In a week or two we will have the systems repaired, and I will be able to continue with this project. Until then, please stand by :)
Title: Re: WIP: Tales Mania game
Post by: Notes on July 06, 2014, 01:44:06 am
Ah... got it, mlptfan. You mine as well just asked us to "STAND BY ME." You know, all of us humans are BIRDS OF A FEATHER when it comes to having electricity problems. You are the one WHO'S RESPONSIBLE for starting the project, therefore you get to take breaks for practical reasons like electricity problems, or because you simple feel like shelving the project.

About your power house being destroyed... well, that'll rain on your TEA PARTY more than not being on the game. Fret not my friend!

I shall take this as a compliment and tell the Corny cult that you said that, Darkabomination.

Thanks, I suppose though. It's how I know how to PLAY COOL.

You've been hanging out with the Crypt Keeper again, haven't you Notes? ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-e8ATuFpIc Or possibly Pepper Clark from Littlest Pet Shop.  :P Still, keep up the pun work.
Title: Re: WIP: Tales Mania game
Post by: Notes on July 06, 2014, 04:52:54 pm
Yeah. The skeleton who was in that zombie dream I had last night must have been the Crypt Keeper. We were the PERFECT PAIR when it came to puns, I'm sure. I wish I remembered that dream...

But saying comparing me with Pepper Clark makes me happy. She's my favorite Littlest Pet Shop pet! 8D Plus I love puns!

Looks like those sheets are a curse and a blessing! XD

So much detail!

Lol! Yes, but they've been EXTREMELY helpful! So, thanks again WS!! :D

Oh... so WILDSHADOW is the member on the board mentioned in the opening post of this thread! And THAT'S one of the uses of the reference sheets on the Me! thread.

Really stoked for the game, guys!

I have been pretty busy during the summer, sorry guys and girls.

A couple of weeks ago this board was found by spambots. While they are harmless to the forum, they can be a big disadvantage to the game, especially in the beginning when I am still testing the cool stuff. But it has been days now since the spambots made it through the register process, so that is a good start.

So I am still going to be busy a couple of more weeks. Though, I am hoping to get back into the game soon!
Title: Re: WIP: Tales Mania game
Post by: Notes on August 16, 2014, 08:36:11 pm
No problem mlptfan! Thank you so much for the update.

Yeah, the spambots were troublesome. At first I thought they were actually fans of Tales that found this place by coincidence... hah, soon I was proven wrong. Thanks for dealing with them.

I look forward to what you put up next.
