    Altered Beast!!! Oh hell yeah.


    "Riiiiise From Your Graaavee!"

    Power Up!
    1.)Glad to know we share similar common ground & gaming/peer reference here.

    2.) Mmmm, the sound of collecting those rings floods me with nostalgia! Do you remember the SEGA CD? Sewer Rat?

    3.) Gotta love the open-world feel of roguelikes.

    4.) Awesome!!! The impressions I get at present suggest an incredible programming ability eminating from you...so your answer makes 100% sense to me.

    5.) Right on. One of my older brothers is a huuuuge R.A.W. fan. Good stuff!

    I've been meaning to take a look at the "Greater Key of Solomon". Maybe this collaboration will get me to eventually read it.

    Toe Jam & Earl did blow me away when I first played it when I was younger. It was definitely different than anything else at the time and I liked the procedurally generated levels! Plus the music is so catchy!

    I remember the sega cd and the 32x. Unfortunately I've never had those additions. Also I never got a chance to purchase a sega saturn as well. I would go to toys r us just to play Nights into Dream.

    Have you ever played a game hours before bedtime then ended up dreaming about playing that game?

    This happened to me last night.
    [​IMG]

    I was playing
    Cult Sim for a few hours before bed & then spent my whole dreamscape matching this VERB to that VERB,blue,orange,red.Aaah,the timers are running out....
    ALL-NIGHT-LONG!

    THIS is a quality I wish to infuse our project with. One that has such an incredible gaming mechanic that your brain keeps playing even AFTER you powered down the CPU.

    In my experience, that mechanic doesn't have to be uber complex either. Think TETRIS.

    I'm sure this has happened to almost all serious gamers out there. There is esoteric value to this.

    Btw, Did you know C.S. doesn't have a damn tutorial?!?! And it's NOT the easiest game to just pick up and start playing.


    Although, once you do get the hang of it, it is kinda unlike anything else out there at the moment.

    I am of fan of Alex & his Weather people! Fallen London was pretty friggin' good .

    On the Business side,$ince I am not in front of you to convey my energetic intentions tangibly- We'll have to settle for the following declaration of intention:

    Point Of Order & For Future Reference:

    The project is KING in this undertaking.
    No "boss".
    No overly-inflated egos.
    No fucking bullshit!

    Fig 1.1
    [​IMG]
    I yield totally to the vision & the impeccable completion of this work & whatever is necessary to accomplish it.

    (Fig. 1.1 Blood over intent.)

    I get a similiar vibe from you. That you,Chuk,have the ability to push aside the standard cubicle politic & hyperfocus on the only thing that really matters.
    The project.

    With our projected timelines- We are all going to need to possess that quality.


    Please pardon if any of this comes of crass,brassy or whatever.
    2D communications have never been my friend.
    I'm just ready To Make Something Happppppen.

    If the formula is:

    Talent
    + Passion
    + Concept(Time + $$$$$) = Masterpiece


    I'd say we have a

    well-above

    An update, it's been a beautiful journey thus far discovering something that I deeply enjoy which is game development. I've been looking at what I've done since the initial post of this thread (March 2016). I've been in seven game jams since my first post and I didn't even realize it. Here is a short clip of my seventh game jam game. I've published my first game and it definitely won't be my last. Time really flies when you're having fun! I wonder what the next three years will bring.

    Speaking of the future, I would like to project more of my intentions out into the distant time. While I'm working on my craft and developing more games I would like to eventually figure out how to pack an awakening (conspiratorial) moment into a game. I have a couple of projects I'm already working on and I'm not sure if the game after that will be exactly that, but I put it out into the universe so I can look back at this post (If this forums is still here haha) and have the same moment I had when I looked at the first post.
