I made Maverick Hunter Xtreme with the intention of just having fun with Megaman and Zero Virus forums, and I guess it's unfair to cancel it just because some random people hated it. I still do stand by my decision, but who knows, in a couple of months, or if I'm not enjoying too much with what I'm working on right now, or give it another 3 - 5 years again, maybe it will come back.
Your stuff's looking shinier and prettier all the time, Zafer. I like the fire effect on the previous one, and on this one the hair especially looks real good. I might try and make you draw something for me.
Anyway, I didn't get any requests... and I'm not really bummed out about it, I just decided to get back to completing my character sheets for notTER instead. I still can do requests for you guys, I just won't be able to guarantee that I'll be able to work and finish em faster after this month.
So, here's some filler art, still practicing backgrounds, also tried a different light source/shade angle instead of the usual 5o'clock shadow.
Been doing fanarts recently, here's one of the 2 I've done so far
If you guys haven't seen my most recent blogpost, I'll be drawing until the next monthly blog update, but right now I don't have any ideas for what/who to draw next so I'm open for 3 free draw requests until March 15. So, just PM me about it. I'll reply for confirmation, if I have not, it just means I'm already working on another request, I will get to it afterwards, I will say if the max requests have already been reached. I will PM you the finished work and post it on my next blogpost. ...and then finish that Megaman Fan game I was working on.
I've uploaded a Demo you guys can try out, quite buggy/gltichy, and may be unstable, only has the intro stage, cutscenes, and other inaccessible stuff from the old version, but I think it has enough to show you guys what I'm going for with the game.
So, I was just informed about a ZV RPG being planned as soon as RPG Maker MV comes out and have agreed to help in any way that I can if the project will push through. However, that will not halt the ZV game that I want to make, I will merely just prioritize the RPG over this one.
For now, I'll still be asking for the input from you guys(see the previous posts) and will post updates whenever I have something to show.
First, let me just tell you guys what's been going on. I've been busy last term, working on my portfolio and I had to work on an exhibit. I've decided to take a break from my personal projects(TER, Summoned Arms, Demon Busters!). Now, I will start working on this whenever I can(hmm... how many times have I said that?) I will take in Swim's suggestions and will start working on the assets.
And I would really appreciate it if you guys can send me
reference sprites(or just descriptions) of your characters
descriptive skills/abilities/movesets(no limits on this one, put as much as you like, for best output, really describe how the character performs it and what it looks like, it would make animating your character easier to do)
I guess, 15 days is enough... and I have read the results, I'll update the first post shortly after this. I like how some of you guys went out of the box; mixed and matched choices, it did give quite a lot of ideas. To sum the responses, most of the answers were platformer type games, and there was one fighting game. As mentioned, I'll update the first post, put all the details there of what type of platform games you guys mashed up, I'll also put up some issues and a way to fix it, and once we come to an agreement on everything, just sit back and wait. I will start working on it mid/late April, when I will finish it, I dunno, since I can only work on this on my free time, but I will get it done.
Zero Virus Video Game - preparation - So, I made a survey before on what type of game you guys would want for the game, and most of the responses were a metroidvania style platformer, but some answers got creative with the survey and gave quite some interesting ideas, but there are some issues that I can't decide alone because this is a game for you guys, this tiny community of ours.
First issue now would be, the story/theme/setting of the game. Now, what I thought about this was perhaps something like the ZV carnival events.
Second, who would be the main(playable) character of the game? Should it be a random generic character, perhaps a person who wants to be a new member of ZV, and have the rest of us as NPC characters or party members, where the player could choose 2 or 3 to come along, cycle between which characters to play as and the rest will be controlled via A.I. or local multiplayer.
Have one of you guys be the main playable character, and still have the other characters recruitable.
Third, control scheme. Would you guys rather have each character have their own attacks/buttons(example: Character A only uses 1 button to attack, Character B has a button for melee and a button for ranged attacks, and Character C has a button for a form change, etc...) or have it uniform.
Fourth, background music/sfx. I dunno how to make musical scores, nor do I know anyone personally who could do it.
And lastly, the easter eggs. someone suggested in the survey that the game should have easter eggs or secrets or references to certain ZV events, whether in chat, forum, or carnival. And I need help with this because, I haven't really been around ZV that much to know everything about the forum, considering that the my first, and last ZV carnival event was on 2013, and I don't really spend a lot of time on chat.
If you guys have anymore suggestions, feel free to post it.
