a little aus fangame some people started idk heck off
« on: April 22, 2018, 02:02:44 PM »


a little while ago i had discovered on discord that a few people had been working on a little fangame called, let's say "A Titled Story".

Yea, well, the project died. No one could code for wack.

as usual, i doubt it

besides maybe like 4 BGs that don't have any kind of gameplay structure to them

actually i think i like the idea of exploring a bunch of maps that were just drawn aimlessly without thinking about "gameplay structure" better than ones that were more thought out..... like weird stream of consciousness game design is more exciting to me than a competent but standard imitation of matts design style

as long as they didnt compensate for the lack of level design planning by just making every room obnoxiously hard & full of garbage

i mean, they didnt even use a GMK, due to lack of coding experience (I can't say much) what crazys!

They kinda knew the project would die so there's most of your answers

i think aus fan game developers should try this challenge: make a complete fangame with a 5x5 map. 25 screens, you can pack as much shit as you want in em but thats all you get

if you succeed then youve made a fun little mini game that aus fans can actually play and enjoy, and you can go on and start your 40 area monsterpiece with more confidence

Sounds too easy, not even worth the time. What if we add dimension switching so there are forty 5x5 areas layered on top of one another??

this is VERY good advice

aus's style means it's REALLY REALLY EASY to get lost in scope creep
