Ace Combat Inspired Entry for Choice of Games Contest


#1

I plan to enter the Contest, but my school work has put me WAY behind schedule. I have the overall plot, but very few actual details. If anyone has ideas for character names, country names, city names, or anything else, that would be helpful. Anyone who has played or knows about the Ace Combat series should be able to understand what I’m going for, but any and all help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Just be careful writing when it’s inspired by a pre-existing game/story. If it comes out sounding too similar to Ace Combat you run the risk of being disqualified or losing based on the fact that Choice of Games, LLC cannot publish games which infringe on ‘Intellectual Property’ rights.

My advice, in terms of writing, is to first write down what scenes you already have planned or want to happen. People often focus too much on beginning, middle, then end. But what I personally think works best is to write those scenes you really are excited about then figure out how to get the players to that scene.

Oftentimes the scenes you really want to write have already been fleshed out in your head. You can write those down first to get them out of the way and then while you bridge the gaps between those scenes then you can revisit and rewrite them if necessary. :smiley:

That’s all for my advice, good luck with your writing!

Honestly, brainstorming is the best way to do it and it doesn’t take much time. If you say you don’t have enough time, then modify. When you are sitting around and something clicks in your mind just scribble it down and save it for a later date. Eventually you will get enough names and place and etc… It’s much more fun if you come up with everything rather than someone else, even if you have a lack of time.
