Community College Hero 2: Knowledge is Power (closed for now 5/9/16)


#1

First of all, like CCH on Facebook!

Now to the substantive stuff.

I guess I’ll repeat, please keep it spoiler free. Don’t reference anything specifically from Part I so nothing is ruined for the folks who did not participate in the final rounds of beta testing.

I need to create a general checklist of things readers have suggested be included/improved for Part II “Knowledge is Power” so I can start sketching out the rough vignettes and creating a draft outline of Part II.

So far I have:

  1. More opportunities for the MC to show off and generally be a badass.

  2. More opportunities for the MC to spend time with ROs and more platonic “buddy” scenes. (EDIT Stoic romanceable or at least more time with her?)

  3. A showdown with a non-DD villain.

  4. More chances to scheme and plot.

  5. Perhaps a motivation meter to track the MC’s thoughts/plans (instead of using so many fake choices) (EDIT: maybe some more moral ambiguity)

  6. Improved balance with relationships and combat stats.

  7. (maybe) to open a path for the MC to possibly gain a super power (at great cost) or find dad’s hidden cache of “experimental” equipment. (EDIT: let character customize equipment)

8) EDIT/ADDED: Flashbacks to Dad/clues about that cache

I’m not saying these will all be included. I’m just listing them as things people have requested so they stay on my “radar” (Daredevil reference) :smiling_imp: The Netflix series is going to be awesome - I’m confident of that!

I think this covers most of the beta requests, but there was a lot going on and I’m sure I missed some. If you have a request, please post it here, but keep it general and spoiler free

Hey-o! I really loved the first Community College Hero and adore what you’re planning for the second part!

I do have a bit of request though, if that’s okay? Though if it doesn’t work, just wave it off and ignore what I mentioned

Said suggestion being maybe a choice to roll a bit anti-hero or act like a typical hero but internally be a anti-hero? It’s kinda like the tracking MC plans idea, but with a bit of moral ambiguity? Or doing moral ambiguous actions with good intentions?


#4

As I doubt this can be spoilery I’ll repeat my request (and want)

…Stoic Romance please?


#5

Why not go for a more batman like thing for the MC by like what you said giving the MC a chance to find daddy’s equipment and maybe(here’s the request part) give the players a choice as to how to customise the equipments to suit the MC.


#6

This is amazing news!
I loved part one so I can’t wait to see what you’re got cooked up for part two! :smiley:


#7

I’ve edited my list to include everyone’s suggestions thus far.


#8

I noticed that it said possibility to gain a power at a great cost. What if the mc took one of their teamates powers leaving the teamate powerless?


#9

I will sacrifice anyone for power!!! You say is need to sacrifice my mother? Sold! My friends? No problem! Already i plot to kill them all! Please give me POWER!!!


#10

My teammates! This pathetic worms don’t have true powers! Maybe i will sacrifice them but i don’t want their powers! This powers is low level!


#11

I loved the first game, and I’m really looking forward to the second! I really like some of the ideas already suggested, especially more opportunities to spend time with RO and friends (Stoic romance/more time with her would be awesome!) Also, maybe characters whose paths diverged from the MC could come back at some point? (sorry if this is bordering on spoilery)


#12

Friends! So wonderful!! (Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!) :smile:


#13

I would /love/ Stoic romance. Especially considering that most of my play throughs had a high relationship stat with her. Also I’m very interested in the idea of the MC gaining powers at a high cost. What would the level of the powers be and how high would they cost? I’m all about moral dilemmas.


#14

No moral dilemmas for me! Hmmm! Why not more types of powers? More powerful with high prices and low powers with a low price? Anyway this for good and bad guys like me? But! Thinking about that in my head is not sounds so good!


#15

@Biotechie, those are the types of tough decisions I want to cram into Part II. Great suggestion!

Who’s power would you most want? Teleportation, invulnerability, strength sapping, smoke creation, magnetokinesis, or umm…hair manipulation?

@hishman13, I know what you meant. And yes, you never known when familiar faces will return.

@Ryuu, I haven’t flushed out the specifics - still in brainstorming mode. But yep, the higher the reward, the higher the cost.

@Abyss, Honestly I don’t anticipate a “diabolical villain” path for the MC but you never know.


#16

Why is it evil people have terrible grammar? Why do they also yell everything? You appear to be an evil fellow, perhaps you could shed some light on this.


#17

Maybe is not their native language? You think? :smirk: and yelling is a safe procedure!


#18

:expressionless: Yelling is rude Sir Abyss. Even evil people have some manners.


#19

I am a god not some people!!!


#20

The Abyss is not a god! It is a giant pit!


#21

Metaphorical! This is the abyss of despair and death.
