So, I’ve been “working” on my own game that I’ve named ‘Super’.
I say “working” because I haven’t touched the word document in two months.
Not to say I’m not interested in it, it’s a mixture of not knowing how to transition to the part where I’m really excited to do, and the fact that I’ve had a new steady stream of videogames to keep me busy.
That’s not why I’m writing this discussion.
Super is the story about the protagonist falling asleep during class, and has dreams. He/She has the dream of being a being with incredible powers that they decide to use on their own will, which is why I refer to the protagonist as a ‘Super’, because they choose how to use them in the world they create. The actions of the real world will inter-wine with those in the dream world, and the preferences they have will also effect what kind of a person they are [with the addition of being ‘good’ or ‘bad’ after added into their personality].
That’s still not why I’m writing this discussion.
I’m writing it because I’d like ideas for characters!
I find that I’m great at weaving a tale, but I don’t have the ability to make a character. If you were to give me a character, I MIGHT be able to create a great backstory, but that’s only a theory.
Give me any range of characters, be they from human to alien species, you never know! I’m trying to make this game with some sort of seriousness, but it has room for absurdity here and there [it’s a dream!] so anything goes at moments in the game.
If you have any questions about my game, feel free to comment on this or PM me. I’ll answer either way.
[Also, I’m wondering about whether to write the full game, then code, or make it long enough for a beta, code, beta it on the forums, then full game?]
