How to Video Game...and hopefully make money 3.
Welcome to “How to Video Game...and hopefully make money”, the third article. You can view the other articles http://news.deviantart.com/article/128162/ and http://news.deviantart.com/article/127902/.
Before starting this one, I'd like to say that I wrote this for developers with a low end budget, a few thousand bucks. The higher your budget, the more scrutinizing and flippant you can be.
First rule of “Getting People to Work on Your Project”.
PEOPLE LIKE MONEY. The more of it you can offer, the better you will likely get. However, not many of us are sitting on goldmines to give money to our staff, so we need something more.
1) Be ORGANIZED. Know beforehand what your game will need, because no budget is complete without a complete concept. Write down everything you can think of as you think of it, organize it, and slap a price on it.
2) Understand that if your budget is too low, parts of your game might not be up to your standards. The best thing to do is to

How to Video Game...and hopefully make money 2.
Welcome to "How to Video Game...and hopefully make money 2." These are a set of articles on how to hopefully make a game that you'll build a profit from, even on a low budget.
This in particular is for story-based games. RPGs and their derivatives.
The benefits of story-games are pretty clear. For one, you can cut down on the action since most people play for pretty characters and a good story. Yes, a good battle system is necessary, but most RPG players will accept a basic old-school turn-based system if your overall idea is phenomenal.
However, extensive battle systems take a lot of time to work and program, so you really want to focus on your story.
Let's go!
1) Writing is more than grammar and spelling. It involves hefty amounts of common sense, the knowledge of where to embellish and where to pull back, as well as the ability to weave words in a way that gets the best effect out of a scene. It's not easy, and poor writing IS obvious in a story-based game.
2) Get an editor/proofrea

Activity


  • Listening to: The sounds of pens scratching on Wacom tablets.
  • Playing: Scenes in Mitsumata over and over again.
We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday; we sure are! We worked very hard to meet the contract, and finished it, and now we are taking a much-needed break!

As we mentioned before, the contract will end sometime in spring of next year. When it ends, we will be able to release the demo, which has already been completed.

Keep watch after the holidays, we want to release it as SOON as possible and show you our work!

We're picking a new one of these.
We're an art circle that is full steam ahead on its first professional production of ミツマタ or Mitsumata(c), a game that will hopefully take all of our favorite parts of interactive novels, point-and-click adventures, and RPGs, and throw them into the best game ever.

ミツマタ, which means "three-forked", is a dark horror fantasy interactive/mixed media game that throws you into the lustrous story of several very different people on two sides of the social coin. On the one hand, you have Humans, the highly intelligent, quick-evolving masters of their world, and on the other, a race called Majin, a language-capable race of humanoids and semi-humanoids who, though stronger than humans, are forced to hide themselves and blend in so that they may have the most basic of peace in their lives.

ミツマタ will run on Mac, Windows, and Linux. 
Gameplay includes:

-Searchable locations. Click on screens and find all sorts of fun hidden items!

-Riddles and word puzzles! These are exactly how they sound, and they'll be game related. :)

-In game mini-quizzes! Watch your in-game journal! Passing the quizzes means items and unlockables!

-Training by completing mini-games. The higher your score, the more training you receive! Includes a platformer!

-Planting. Yes. You can plant demonic seeds and grow all sorts of monstrous looking things...

-Rewards you receive the longer you play. No more playing the same exact scenes over and over before you figure out the way to go. Finishing ANY ending will give you bonus scenes in your next game!

-IT IS OFFICIAL. The game will contain RPG-style turn-based battles. Battle systems are a funny thing, but they are possible, and they'll be here. :)

We encourage feedback and will hopefully be posting several polls about what the fans would like to see in the game. :)

I guess that vnsnow guy was right: this project really is dead. It's a shame too, because I really wanted to play Mitsumata. Oh well; you guys tried.
