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!
