Synergy, you could try to be one. I liked your idea. it would be a pity if it weren't be executed.

Aaaaaargh, as Ephesos said, your posts are getting more and more difficult to understand. Ever heard of the words grammar and spelling? probably not. And another thing: the creatures you said where in sci fi series that already existed before you were born. that is, if you are not a person in his mid-thirties or mid-twenties, which i doubt, as you spell like an eight year old.

There is no way I'm ever going to learn to program a game, but if a powerful and versatile enough game editor ever came along, I wouldn't hesitate to give it a try. The BoA editor isn't it.

Please learn the proper way to use quote tags. It is not the way you are using them. You're supposed to put what you're quoting between the [ QUOTE ] and [ /QUOTE ] tag.

Yeah, there seems to be an epidemic of simultaneous posting lately...

And Coldstone isn't so great... I remember trying it. You're still stuck in a restrictive engine, one which is based on running around and killing stuff.

That too. But their game engine just melts if you forget to put it back into the freezer. It does taste good though...

Coldstone is an engine of sadness. Your heart feels like a stone in your chest and you are filled with cold sensations.

I kind of liked Pillars of Garendal, though. Without really being able to explain why, since there was literally nothing to it but running around (really a LOT of running around) and madly pounding the X key whenever you ran into anything animate. I think the music was nice, and without looking really good it looked somehow friendly and homey. It's as though it tricked me into feeling that it had been written by my little brother or something.

A good question. I blame society.

I prefer to write stories to imaginary fantasy games. I don't have to learn programming and I'm less limited in terms of what I can do. If I had the ability to create a fantasy game, I probably would have been able to create a BoA scenario by now. Plus, it keeps my writing skills sharp. Of course, it's doesn't have that open-ended, create-and-discover-as-you-go-along feel that a game does. Oh well. Can't have everything in life.

Seriously, though, tt's good to see creativity and the possibility of more computer games that aren't gory first-shooters some day.

Uh... pardon me for asking, but why are you imitating Alorael's sig? Because I believe we've had an epidemic of that already.

And that topic would've probably just resulted in more unpleasant lung-boring insects.

In brief, I'd like it to be action-adventure, in timeless or futuristic settings (but not an ultra-developped technological world with wires, laser and smog, but a balanced semi-utopic one). I like medieval fantasy too but it's my 2nd choice.

I'd like the graphics to be 2d, with handpainted backgrounds and nice and carefully animated figures (Though i'll probably start with texual or pictorial games with simple images, if I'll ever go for it.) And simple but pleasant melodic music.

I myself enjoy [good] dialogues, I sometimes reload games over and over only to go through every option of conversation, so naturally I'd set lots of them in my own game. I'd also let the player have the choice of shaping their fate by their own actions so they'll see different endings (hopefully tempted to play it again, too...).

It probably wouldn't be breft of battle but I'd somehow make players consider death and take it slightly more seriously, say, no sadistic gutsplitting. Well I can't describe further *yawn* got to go to sleep... lucky you lol

Oops. I did that somewhere else too. I already apologized to Alorael on another post but I guess I have to do it again. Sorry. I usually refer to myself in third person to sign off, but that must have been one of my earlier ones where the ", who" got by. I don't know why. (Look, it rhymes!)

Dikiyoba likes to sign off like this. It's different. Hopefully, it's different enough to avoid offense.

It's so nice to have minions to enforce your policies for you!

Screenshots of Pillars of Garendall look cool. I'll check Coldstone engine... though I feel too lazy to start learning something. I see that they're working on an engine for one of my favorite games ultima 8 though it's not going to be independent. Think at my best I'll start with Interactive Fiction as said before. Still, if you know of other interesting 2D engines (as noob-friendly as possible) please share.

I don't know if some people are grouping fantasy and rpg, but I like both. I wish I had the graphics engine the Avernum 4 has. Or Delver- I hope we all have played Cythera, one of my favorite games of all time. There is an application called Coldstone, made by Ambrosia Software.....

Just my thoughts
