Not sure whether it'd fit in here or in /ig/ so please move if this is too far off.

That aside.

This is basically a buncha exploration where you look for things. Yes, there's going to be a demo. Yes, draw a conclusion from that fact.

No, this isn't the protagonist's own head - it's someone else's. No relation at all. What an asshole.

there's a point in development where you're in it for the long term. after that point it'd be easier just to start over from scratch. i don't know how far into development you are, but from your screenshots, it looks fairly significant. you might still be ok, but if you'll have to redo a large enough amount of areas, it's better to just scrap what you got and start again, or plow on through.

the different styles between areas have always concerned me. stylistically, some things just don't belong, and i was worried it'd eventually take it's toll on the project. in regards to the battles, you're pitting chibi final fantasy sprites against works of art. middens and off did similar, but kept a similar palette throughout to make differences less jarring. i don't know if that's the problem you're talking about however, but that's what I'm worried about. what do YOU think is wrong with the battle system? if you uploaded a picture of it, it might be easier to tell what's gone wrong and how to fix it. also keep in mind, you can position the characters and enemies sprites anywhere on the field. you don't have to just line them up on one side.

i really don't mean to sound overly critical. I'm a bit of a pessimist. still, what you have shown us so far is great, and I'm looking forward to more of it. i do have high hopes for the game, even if it doesn't sound like it. you are an amazing artist.
my complaint about the bedroom is that it's a bit flat. perhaps add more colorful decorations to it to make it feel more 'lived in', such as pillows or a carpet, or books, clothes, or a lamp.

Hello once more. My issue with the battle system isn't its style (because after all it becomes interchangeable) but its implementation - How to for example make it so it's not too intrusive for the people who want to explore but not too much "just tacked on and easily ignorable" which is a delicate balance with a game of such a nature. As for the picture shown in my previous post, it was just there as an example of how my pixel art would look like (veterans however, might realize that this is a mockup of one of my earlier games )

Gif and picture here is how the battle system is like in its current state.

TL;DR: pic related.

I've been thinking about the much reviled "western 2kki" lately, and I've come up with an idea for a process that may allow for a game like this to be made. This thread isn't for starting such a game, but for review, criticism and suggestions concerning these ideas.

The process goes a bit like this:

1 - I (or any one organizer) makes a thread where people can send submissions for in-game maps that they made themselves.

2 - One week later, a new thread is made, where a small RPGM game is posted. This one-week period will be called a "phase" hereafter. The game consists of a Nexus which connects to each individual map that has been submitted through numbered doors. The thread's OP also contains a strawpoll for voting on which map do players think is the best. The one with the best score wins. It also contains another call for map submissions.

3 - Repeat step 2 for 4 phases, then go to step 4.

4 - The winners of the last 4 phases (now refered to as devs) get together in an online chat like a Discord server or IRC, and put the winning maps together in order to create a playable game. See pic related, fig. 1, for an example of what this would be like after 4 phases and fig. 2 for what the same project would look like after 8 phases. Noticed how nothing from fig. 1 is changed. What has already been released cannot be changed.

These devs have a deadline of 2 phases to do this, after which an official release is posted in the appropriate thread. The chat is managed by the organizer, who has no input in the actual conversations taking place.

All those filters for content are beyond pointless when there's no content to behin with. And the reason there is no content is that people have no ideas to begin with. Nor any passion for the genre, really. That's the biggest limiter to the idea of Western 2kki.

>And the reason there is no content is that people have no ideas to begin with. Nor any passion for the genre, really.
Pretty much this. The devs who worked on fangames aren't really interested in them that much anymore (we've been doing this for, what, about 10 years?). 2kki survives because the devs there love what they do, but people don't really like RPGM that much in the west nowadays (mostly for the reputation of steam games with default tilesets and such).
Your idea would work, hypothetically, if we had a bigger userbase/developers that would like to contribute, but sadly that's not the case anymore.

It's a dead fandom and an even quieter board. Nobody makes fangames anymore aside from people who missed Yume Nikki's limelight by a decade. Most people make fangames for attention (and that's not something bad), and the attention pool has mostly run out. If you want to try somewhere with active devs to ask, try going on tumblr or the uboachan discord.

Don't be racist, just because the dev is Japanese doesn't automatically mean the game will have good art or last long. Lots of Japanese fangames die out after the first couple of releases.

Don't be afraid to do the unexpected. There's too many of the same things in a lot of games. Try for brighter colors and less eye/gore/blood gimmicks. Don't go with big empty areas and painful mazes (to navigate and look at). Consider also a protagonist who isn't a recolor.

One word: Otaku. But the real meaning, not the meme.
Otaku means utter passion, losing yourself in your work, because you live it. It's not because you like it, it's not because you find it pleasant, it's not because it's a trend, it's because it's a core element in your life and you enjoy working on it instead of "making this cool fangame so everybody will suck my cokc and call me a dev xddd".
Most of Western people don't really understand this concept. For them, being otaku means liking anything that came from Japan. But that's just being a weeboo. That's also why most of the good artists on the internet are from orient. I'm not saying all of the art on this side of the planet is shit, nor that all the art from there is godly, but that's mainly the reason why you see such gorgeous art in blogs while in the west it's mostly kid who constantly copy each other and don't really progress.

We lack passion. We are not real otaku.

Wrong. Westerners aren't lazy and unwilling to put effort into things; Normal Westerners. In the J-pan I imagine everybody is imbued with a strong work-ethic no matter what due to societal training. Over here, society doesn't force it on you as hard. The westerners who are successful and well-adjusted are total workaholic drones, it's just that they put their effort into stuff immediately beneficial to themselves. A good private lawyer over here works just as hard as one in Japan. Same goes for engineers, doctors, ect. Meanwhile, the fringes of society, who would actually give a fuck about YN fangames, over here tend to not have that work-ethic. The fringes in Japan however, do. These are just generalizations, but overall this effect makes a big difference. That's my theory.
Also, recognize your faults and work on them. Stop fucking up projects plz.

I think it's important to see the difference between wannabes and actual developers.

I don't really consider anyone a developer unless they get to finish one project, and not a short one, but fangames are rarely short.

Someone who has the dedication to finish a game isn't lazy, but there are so many wannabes that it's just easy to think devs are shit.

 No.13820

As someone who reads japanese forums occasionally, let me tell you - an average Japanese anon is just as much of a useless retard as the Western one (albeit more polite usually), and the fact that Y2 came to exist is just as much a stroke of luck to them.

If I recall correctly though, a number of people who worked on the game already had a name to themselves, and assumed a separate identity inside the production, treating it as a passion project. So I guess the "otaku" argument is not entirely wrong; I certainly have a hard time imagining a Western dev doing that.

 No.13940

I have a rather novel idea. How about we take a leaf out of GNUs book and make our work opensourced? Create a repository for maps and sprites and sound effects, that anyone can use or alter in any form so long as people are properly credited. People would have zero restrictions for creations, and any person or team could take their work and edit and amalgamate it in an way for them to make their own final product.

As for a way to differentiate the game a bit and break the mold some, I'd like to be able to explore the whole protaganists house while awake, though still not able to leave. During dreams you could access the different world's by entering different rooms of the house or exiting. Having a non-static nexus or house as in not all words can be accessed from the nexus every time you dream. It could be a simple rotation, done randomly, or if an lsd em "tracker" is put in place it could relate to that. Or possibly just the scenery of the house and outside changes.

I don't think a tracker should be done in a 1 dimensional happy/sad fashion, but it should be a 2 dimensional map more like.

This is a fangame im working on. It stars Angelica, a cute yet strong girl. The main focus of this game, aside from collecting effects, is defeating bosses. Yup, this YNFG will have battles. I'm only going to add boss battles, saving the rest of the game for npcs and such. As of right now, all I've done is a mockup of the title screen (image) and a character sprite, which is on my other pc which i dont have with me right now, so i'll probably show that tonight. I'll start actually working on the game either tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates! Sorry about the shitty image, I made it in a hurry on google drawing and i'll try to make a better one.

A good bunch of the short burst of western Post (And some Pre-)Answered Prayers fangames too. Some weren't ever finished, but what little was there (Anarchy comes to mind, so does N'Oubliez Jamais to a certain extent. While the latter is still influential, it certainly hasn't aged very well.)… For every semi-decent idea that somehow was never developed or even posted a demo, you'd get some really stupid things. Or even decent games that had its moments.

Also, The Door of Thoughts. Dear mother of fuck, that game. I know I was in that phase, still doesn't excuse it. While Remedy had its luck onto being partially undone and thus its newer version is lost, this first game is basically an ol' shame o' mine. It's interesting to see how far have I come, though.

Made a fangame lads.

It's a about a girl called Amari who uses a headset to explore a virtual world in her computer known as the "Enhanced Reality".

There are 12 effects to collect.

The game has 2 endings depending on how the game was played.

There are 3 minigames.

I hope you enjoy it.

If you find any bugs, glitches or any weird shit like that please feel free to tell me.

Thought I'd make a dedicated thread for this game. If there's already a thread for it let me know, but I couldn't find one.

Anyway I hated this game at first and thought it was going to be another boring clone, but it turns out to be really well-made with a pretty neat mystery at the core and some of the best events I've seen. It also updated recently too. For someone who was growing tired of most new fangames, this one really surprised me.
