Friday, January 16, 2015 | 29Howdy folks. I'd first like to apologize because I haven't been playing MMORPG's enough to really write about them. This is for two reasons in particular:
- They're all so bad.
- I'm making a stupid computer game for fun.
While the former doesn't appear to be changing any time soon, I thought I'd update everyone on exactly what I'm doing just so there is something new on the site outside of more awful MR. POD episodes.
ChickenSword is a single player game about a chicken and his best friend/weapon. Basically it's like Zelda 2 (platform combat + worldmap) with a bunch of features, like encounters I'm drawing from Baldur's Gate, and some other stuff I don't really care to explain right now. Here's a gif.
I've built most of the game systems already, so the game is playable but has very little content. If you'd like to try it out, shoot me and email and I'll try and get you a working build you can mess around with.
What about I Hate MMORPG's?HOPEFULLY I'll get some inspiration from this experience, but if not, Richard Garriott has informally agreed to join me on MR. POD for a chat, and I still get pissed off about stuff ALL THE TIME. In other words, there's nothing to worry about.
I have a devlog at TIGSource for anyone who wants to follow along, but I post way more stuff on twitter.
If you'd like me to post dev updates here as well, leave a comment, but I don't see many people finding this process super-interesting. Here's another gif.
