I have made several games but they have all been space invaders or mario style.
Following my last question (thank you for all the great answers) I am trying to write out a plot line and a plan for the events that will take place.
The problem I am having is that my story's tend to resemble things that already exist like films or other games I have played.
The events to feel like a mix of various other games I have played.
So apart form become a more creative person does anyone have any advice. Has anyone written a fairly lengthy story for a game and have pointers or does anyone know any good books on the subject.
Any thoughts would be welcome, story of event ideas to.
FYI the game has a final fantasy style battle system and a pokemon catch/raise system.
