Hey guys!

 

In the past couple of years, I've done absolutely nothing during my 3-4 months off of university. Of course it's important to rest and recover too, so I don't have any regrets about that, but I know that I want to have a much more productive summer holiday this time around. I've already agreed with my brother that we will produce some music and learn how to make a basic sidescrolling arcade game together. So that's already two things I'm excited about. But I still want to do a bit more... And that's writing a story - with a game to go with it.

 

My inspiration came from playing Fire Emblem: Heroes on the mobile. It's currently a PvE game only, and I've been thinking of ways to make PvP viable and have considered making it a thing for others to enjoy. However, I don't know all the game mechanics, so I don't think I'd have much hope. But it did give me an idea.

 

I still want to write a story, as mentioned in my status here. It could be anything, but I'm thinking of something magical. And then I would make a strategy game to go with it, where you can battle against other players. Whether other people play or not isn't an issue. But it would be a great experience - and a really fun one.

 

So, if you have any ideas of what you'd like to see, discuss it with me here. I'll take every idea seriously, and to be honest, I don't have many myself, so it would help me loads. I'll make a poll to this thread to get an idea of what to expect, because I know it's much less effort for you guys to vote in the poll. It'll be anonymous, so please be honest.

 

My last exam this year is on June 1, so I will get started shortly after. 

 

Looking forward to planning and making this!

On an unrelated note, happy 10th XC anniversary!

Thanks guys! Great to hear. Honestly just knowing that I have a public place to put the story is everything. It's so much easier to write when you know someone else could read it.

Woah, no way! I knew it was creeping up, but didn't realise it was already here. That's so awesome... I've been on XC for half my life now. Crazy.

I'd be up to read this in my spare time. Can't say I can provide any good ideas.
