MY name is Lennon, I am an artist and am very interested in making a rpg game for the iphone, i was wondering what the process would be, tools i should use, and a price check on everything i might need?
my game idea is an rpg, where you are taken through a pretty simple and linear story, where your choices have alot of affect in what happens.
the fighting is turn based.
there would be a ton of spells and attacks, which is what the game would be mostly about. its less about getting the good spell at level 10, but when getting to level 10, choosing between 20 different good spells to customize your guy.
im all about creating a super unique character to the player.
many unique weapons as well and cute items to wear.
as the player gets further through the game, he will unlock ''party slots'' which are simply more room in his party for more players, up to 3. the thing with this would be you have to know someone who plays the app, and can send them a request for their avatar to join your party.
this would promote alot of fun getting to interact with your friends characters. your friends characters that are in your party would be updated in real time as your friend levels up his own character in his game, you would be simply controlling your friends avatar, though you are technicaly taking him on a different adventure.
there would be something called ''death mountain'' or something, that would be a super intense collosium like part of the game, where players who believe their unique character build and attacks are powerfull enough to take on the strongest monsters in the game, in a row. this would be mulitplayer, and would require at least one friend, to play with you real time as you both attempt to survive all the fights. unlike the adventure mode, your friend would control his own character, and is a much closer and more exlusive experiance for those who are both good at the game, and have friends who play it.
pvp for your team vs other teams would also be in it.
is this possible? how can i begin to tackle this? need alot of advice, people wanna help out i dont mind, im really excited about it tho! hit me up, thank you everyone!
