Hey I just had a thought. What if I made a walking simulator and just called it Walking Simulator? Or Walking Simulator 2015?

Then it would be in the next bundlestars. Was this a serious question?

They might have made a walking simulator, but for some reason they didn't call it Walking Simulator, which means the name is still open.

Walking Simulator where you fart to propel you faster and into the air.

This one is even tagged walking simulator and everyone probably even owns it.  Maybe try Sitting Simulator (not to be confused with Shitting Simulator).

That's "manic depression simulator".

My next game is Dear Escher, where you walk through impossible 3D environments while some lady says depressing things to you in Dutch. At the end:

Considering the humorous tone this thread contains, I don't know if you are joking around or being serious but that idea sounds really good. That ending, I think, would be in a lot of people's "Dang good ending" list.

This seriously sounds like the bullshit that if you actually made it so many reviewers would be like "OMGZ see video games are totally art GOTY FOREVER"

I am actually pretty serious about that one, and Ding Dong Jump Jump, even though Ding Dong Jump Jump is just a silly name I gave to the game I am working on while I think of a better name. I've put a few dozen hours into scripting and 3d modeling and animation this week, and I am going to enter the Indie Game Maker Contest.

How is the game going, Fox?

 

Anyone else making a game? Or thinking about it?

I'm attempting to. Whether I succeed or not before June 30th (my birthday!) will be a close call, though. Too much going on this month what with the lease to my apartment running out at the end of the month.

Haven't even started, though I did start looking at the guide to make my first game.  Between work, playfire rewards, and nature I haven't had as much gaming time as I wish I did.

Moving is bitch.  I hate it.  Good luck with that.

Thinking about it. I really need to get back to working on my current project.

 

Here's a probably horribly buggy demo release of it that I pulled out ages ago: https://www.dropbox....iring Range.exe

Thanks.  Biggest issue I'm facing right now isn't so much the moving part as much as the finding a place to move to part...

Bad timing! :(

Looking at the guide is a good start. I tried to just jump in with RPG Maker and got precisely nowhere.

Gave it a try? There's probably only about 30 minutes of gameplay there, and that's if you aren't blowing through it (there's a fair bit of talking, so that takes up some time). I can't remember if I put in a "the demo ends here" screen at some point or not. The last I finished was going into the wilds with Kira (there's one of three scripted battles up in the top right corner of the map, but I haven't done the other two and the rest of that place).

I just noticed RPG Maker doesn't come with any black people. Can anybody recommend some good black children sprites and faces?

 

EDIT: Nvm I just found the random generator.

And all this time I thought it was the developers who were racist.

I used these tutorials for RPG Maker to avoid jumping in completely blind. They were decent and gave me some ideas. http://www.rpgmakerw...ducts/tutorials  But now, real life is catching up with my free time. Moving sucks, helping my parents move this week and moving myself to another state the next.
