WIP: Tales Mania game
« 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.

Could you link a pic of her?

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