So, for you guys that don't know. I am participating in a programming course in my University.

I would like to have some ideas for a game, however there are some guidelines.


Guidelines:
* 2-D graphics.
* Plausible to make in C#.
* Plausible to make in 10 weeks.
* No vulgar content



Now hit me up with ideas, it should be rather smooth since its a gaming forum.

I could even bring a beta/alpha in the end of the course. Smile

Um a top down rpg? I think they shouldn't be too hard. As long as it's not too long then it's very possible. Just make some sprites, give the main ones that actually move 4 different angles (left right up and down, meaning you only need to make 2 sprites per character because you can simply flip them for the other sides) and of course add relevant weapons to them. Then to enter building and stuff its really just hotspots and stuff like that..

Well whatever you do, good luck with it. Wink

I like the idea of an RPG.

As for top down? Do you mean like most rpgs on the for example gameboy?

Yes pretty much just like that. Or Breath Of Fire. Pretty much the same thing. And perspective really doesn't matter. Legend Of Zelda failed in terms of perspective yet people still loved them.

If you're going for an RPG, you should try doing something similar to Chrono Trigger where if you saw enemies on screen and if you encountered them instead of going into another screen to battle they just spread out on screen and then fight, and you do like single enemy or forward area attacks or circle area attacks.

Kinda like this.

Also, don't do random encounters! I'm not sure about you, but I hate those, so having visible enemies on screen is always a better idea. Even if it's just a simple unmoving sprite, up until combat anyways.

Or go lazy and do some Earthbound battle system. SMT Devil Survivor had it too and it was really good. This one seems like it could be done faster but I wouldn't really know.

I find game simulators particularly enjoyable. I'm sure it's not that hard either. For example, this. http://notdoppler.com/frame/639.html
Very fun messing around with.

I agree about random encounters. They're okay if they pop up once every so often but if you've ever played breath Of Fire 3, it will put you off random encounters for life (though the game's generally really good).

Did you figure out what kind of game you're going to make?
