I'm making an RPG! It's going to have a focus on exploration and battling. There will be a storyline (somewhat), but it won't be very detailed, and don't expect much dialogue. I'm also thinking I'm going to try to give the game a pretty creepy and weird atmosphere. (Hopefully my friend will be able to help me with the graphics.)
The battle system is currently a cross between the Mario and Luigi series and Earthbound (although the Earthbound-likeness is pretty much for decoration right now; not sure if I'll keep it that way). I am going to try to make the battle system unusual in some way.
So far I've got the basic framework for the battle system coded, so I think I'll move on to the overworld map soon.
I update more frequently on the Love2D forums
, but I only post the source, so you'll need Love2D to run it. You'll also need Love2D if you're on OSX or Linux since I'm not going to bother compiling for anything besides Windows just for early previews.
So if anyone has some cool and unusual ideas they would like the see in an RPG then they are welcome here.
