Hello everyone, I'm a huge newbie who only just recently discovered the fun that are these games and... well I have a best friend with ambitious plans. We've had plans for years of manga project or two but now have gotten excited about the prospect of changing them to a gameplay format. This means I have to learn the Ins and Outs so I started this little fairytale game as a learning experience for me. I'm primarily an artist but I'm having fun confusing myself with coding and how to do things.
I really intended for a darker, grittier look to this but the part of me obsessed with cuteness must have taken over. Hopefully it will be just dark enough to add some spice. So far I have most of the sprites and backgrounds done except for the different ending scenes. I've kept the art very simple and graphic so I can spend more time on learning. Here are a few more screencaps:
Being new to all of this, I do have some questions related to game making or for this game in particular. Any suggestions are also welcome if you think something would make it more fun.
- I found somewhere with music that was free to use, but is there a good resource out there for just sound effects?
- Is first person present the best way to go? Trying to get a feel for how much or little Rin should say.
- Trying to decide whether to keep it very linear or to give more control on where Rin goes, more like navigating the woods yourself. If I did, what would be the best way to do that?
- Instead of having an automatic prompt whether to pick something up, is there a simple code for having to click on an image that then starts the option of what to do with it?
