Now, my thoughts on it are currently this(May be subject to change in the future.)
I think I want to keep this on a more grounded level. At least in standards of combat deceptions. I already said before you aren’t going to see fighter robots or legions of undead spirits. At least…for this wip. If in a million and a half years, I ever get to finishing this and working on a sequel? It will probably be a lot less grounded, with all characters taking serious levels in badass.
On other notes…
It’s no surprise to see Rafael currently the highest rated character. Brooding tall stoic guy? Obviously he’s going to at least rank. What is surprising to me is the amount of people who seem to have taken to Setsuna, with it current stats suggesting a near even split between the two for characters who are basically polar opposites In third,. Ruka is only being a bit less farther behind, which is nice to see.
As to why not everyone is listed on the polls as an option is easy. Compared to the cat? Everyone is just playing for second(Unlike that other cat.)
Hmm…a health and stamina bar? Technically it would be possible to do…but it might also end up becoming too much resource management for something that’s supposed to be casual. Then again, while the MC is strong, they are far from unbeatable.
Also, there is already stats that measure strength, speed, and technique. Though likely the single most important stat in the game, will be your Badass rating. How, I don’t yet know. May just affect the outcome of the end game or be more in depth. Possibly something to how well you work in teams. Not sure.
While I am considering these things, it’s all likely going to be far in the future before these things are really seen in game.
