dude, these are so earthbound! Good job on these. Are you planning on putting together an album or something when you're done?
I need to play this game now. Really enjoying those battle themes - zany, creative, total Earthbound vibe. The other themes are great too - some nice variety in there.
Do you have a Soundcloud? If not, you should totally make one so I can follow you. :p
thank you very much, Calum, Drakken, earthbound is most def an influence on this supposed game. i'll probably release an album eventually of all the music for the game, but i'd want to include artwork and the entire script as well. see the game is based off this animation I did:http://youtu.be/a5e5-dz2nkM
*its crappy, beware*
except the game builds on a lot of story material I would plan on releasing as either comics or more short animations and the other way around. For example, the animatinos wouldn't explain how Xzvnbmnb and his family blend in so well with all of dog-kind. He's a grey alien, and no one ever comments on that. Character establishment would go into comic/animations, and the game would be what expands the Boneprides world into the Boneprides universe. Also, little details from non-game content, stuff you would only know from watching or reading the Boneprides, would factor into the game. Perhaps Ardy is ordering a drink at a bar. If you pick a Sunday Slammer(Ardy's favorite drink) Ardy will monologue: "Hey, that's my favorite drink. A pint of mead topped with a scoop of vanilla icecream, sliced banana, peanuts, and drizzled with chocolate syrup) and gains +5 on all stats afterwards.
I'm not even sure if this will ever be a game(i'm not really working on it that much at all), but gameplay would be pretty simple. Walk around like in earthbound, talk to people, fight, etc... but I want to have some complex features. There would be an optional little feature of the game where Ardy is able to update his Bark-Acha account(the dog-world equivalent of facebook) which would link up to your own facebook. Each time you level up, it would post a status update noting you ingame stats such as steps in game taken, battles won, npcs talked to, your alignment... if you talk to someone, or something strange happens, Ardy updates his status with his thoughts.
Battles would be like Earthbound, except each battle would be situational. If you are engaged in a "battle" with a pile of dust, the attack command won't say "attack," instead it will say "clean up." If you're "fighting" a plate of spaghetti, commands will be "fork", "knife", "napkin" and "blow." for example:
"Ardy puts his fork through meatball C... but it was too hot to handle! Ardy took 10 damage."
"Ardy pats the napkin on his muzzle. Ardy recovered 5 Hp."
"Ardy blows gentley on meatball A. Meatball A's defense is down!"
of course it will mostly be traditional type battles too!
here's how it would looks:
except less shitty and mock up-y.'
i hope that explains this a bit more... and no I don't have a soundcloud
I have bandcamp, but i never update it......... infact I still have an entire album I never released on there. :S
oh and I made this yesterday::tanooki-tanooki tun
