Monstructs: Makers and Mayhem

The Concept

I'm making a game where you create your own monsters and battle them against other creators (or Makers, as they're called). This is a remake of a failed project that I intend to finish it this time. I know this isn't a pokemon game but I figured folks wolks would be interested anyway

The Story

You play the role of Aron/Eryn (more this in Cast), a young orphan living in a cabin in the forest with your grandfather Oron, a world-class Maker.

While you're away at the Fusion House creating your first Monstruct, your grandfather Oron is approached by three shady characters (2 men and 1 woman)named Johl, Cirt and Vayn. He welcomes them into his and, after a light lunch, asks how he can help them. The leader, Vayn asks if Oron would be willing to share his Maker Formula with them and even offers to pay him handsomely. Oron refuses. As you return home with your new friend, you find him being threatened by the group. You ask your grandpa what's happening; he tells you to run. A battle ensues as Oron keeps them busy while you escape. You run away as an explosion booms behind you blowing you into a tree. You lose consciousness.

Later, a young girl/boy finds you and takes you home. You wake up in a room you don't recognize and find out that you've been brought back to the Fusion House you just came from ealier. The owner says his niece/nephew, Flix found you in the forest passed out two days ago. You ask if your grandpa is there as well and the owner tells you the news that he was found missing, his house a complete ruin. The owner says you can stay with him and Flix, as you mourn your loss.

Later, you and Flin go to your house to find any clues to your grandpa's whereabouts. There you see a figure cloaked in black staring at the wreckage. As you walk closer you hear whispering.

"I'm sorry, old friend. I wasn't there in time to help you..."

He turns around just as you approach and you question him about Oron. He promises to tell you if you have a Monstruct Match with. After the battle, he speaks with you briefly and he leaves; you and Flin continue on your search. A flash catches your attention. Out of the corner of your eye you see a package with a letter with you name on it under a floor board. You open it and you read it. It asks you to meet your grandfather at Sunshine Island Resort.

You fold the note back and get ready to leave, determined to finish what Oron started, no matter what.

Now you embark on a journey to complete your grandfather's work. You'll face may challenges, fierce beasts and see great things that will change you forever--all while creating Monstructs of your own and avoiding the three people who attacked your grandfather.

But who was that man at Oron's house and what was his relationship with him?

The Cast
Gender: Male/Female
Caste: Unknown

A young orphan travelling the world trying to finish your grandfather's work. You're also looking for clues as to his whereabouts.

Gender: Male
Caste: Soil

A Master Maker who was creating a masterpiece when he was attacked. He disappears after battling the Malicious Trio


Gender: Female/Male
Caste: Unknown
He/she is a friend of yours ever since you were little. His/her uncle owns the Fusion House you use early in the game. Flix goes off to challenge the Makers at Grand Circle to become Champion.
Johl (Leader of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Male
Caste: Ember

Cold-hearted and burning with ambition, he destroys anything in his path. No one knows why he wants Oron's new Monstruct designs. But he's going to get them regardless of the cost.
Cirt (Member of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Male
Caste: Metal

A quiet man with no real moral compass. He'll follow anyone as long as their goals interests him. Not even his partners know that much about him or his past.
Vayn (Member of the Malicious Trio)
Gender: Female
Caste: Gem

A natural beauty with a penchant for all things glamorous, she brings a lady's touch to the group. Totally in love wth Vayd, she'd do anything and everything he says without question.
Gender: Male
Caste: Unknown
While you may know nothing about this mysterious man, he seems to know everything about you and you grandfather. Who is he?

The Setting

In the distant past, a young alchemist was working with a formula for water transmutation, accidently mispronounced something and created a living being. Thus was the first Monstruct born and the world was changed forever.

Now alchemy is the power that shapes the world. Many deadly illnesses are cured with a pill and everyday problems are solved with ease. People even move from place to place in an instant. In the midst of it all are the Makers, men and women gifted with the ability to create Monstructs. Some use them for work, some for companionship, others for glory. But everyone knows that these mysterious creatures are apart of their lives.


Each Monstruct is derived from nine Castes split into three Aspects of creation.


Element(The vital power of the natural world)

Mystic(That mysterious force that guides the hearts of living creatures)

Form(Those things used and shaped by the hands of man)

Each of these categories have their own traits and weaknesses which will be explained later.

The Features


Choose your gender (you have a choice of being a boy or girl)
Missions (send your creations on jobs to gain great stuff)
Tournaments (Challenge other Makers to be the best!)
Monstruct Creation (the coolest part of the game XD)
Battle Tile System (turn the tide of battle with a flip of a tile)
Enhancement/Synergy System (transform your creations with items or fuse them to make an even stronger one)
Side Quests
Active Day and Night System
Calendar System(certain events occur depending on the day, week or month)

other stuff (maybe)
PvP battles?

The game will be broken up into 9 - 10 chapters, each with a mini-boss and a boss to complete it. Along with puzzles to solve as well.

ScreenshotsNew and Improved!!
The Fuse house, where Makers create Monstructs.
While you're away, The Malicious Trio make you grandpa an offer he shouldn't refuse.
After you escape the Trio, an old friend finds you passed out in the forest.
While looking for clues, you see a strange man snooping around the ruins of your home.

Well that should do for now. I'll post pics of the Monstructs later if folks are interested. Any questions or comments are welcomed. Thanks :D

Now I Have a User Bar! YYAAYYYYY!!! (more to come)

w00t First Post! Well, this game could use some work. First, close up the maps and add some more detail. The maps look really open. Second, don't make things so obvious like "Would you like to be the Master Maker?" That is too obvious, you should probably add some more details into the text.

I want to see this project excel!

Jayje October 7th, 2009 1:07 PM

thanks for the crit, i'll try diffrent things with the maps

on a different note, i figured i'd post some of the guys you'll be playing with.

i'm posting one from each caste.










hopefully you folks'll enjoy them.

Look at one of the screenshots. I know what I saw ;)

Jayje October 7th, 2009 2:20 PM

look let's not get silly about it. i'll take the useful crit and make some changes. okay?

"Hello. would you be the Master Maker Oron?"
He's asking the cloaked man if he is "Master Maker Oron".
He's not saying "Would you like to be the Master Maker?", like you're suggesting.
Read harder.

And it looks okay.. Original at least. I'd like to see more than overworlds before I really comment.

Ok, listen I don't want to start anything. Maybe I should've read a little bit harder.

Ravecat October 8th, 2009 1:06 PM

Don't worry, I'm not trying to start anything.

Any word on battle screenshots?

Jayje October 8th, 2009 1:33 PM

glad you guys worked that out. oh btw those monstructs aren't over worlds they're battle charas

here's what i mean
this is the battle system so far.

HeavyOctillery October 9th, 2009 12:58 PM

It definitely looks interesting. I think this is the first time here that I've seen an original idea with some actual potential behind it.

Just one thing: Ya' need better battle sprites BADLY. >.<

Jayje October 9th, 2009 1:51 PM

Battle Tiles
I figured folks would be more interested if i posted some more on one of the more interesting elements of gameplay: Battle Tiles.

Think of them as kind of like yugioh/ or bakugan cards. they give certain benefits or disadvantages based on which one you play.
they're broken up into three groups:

These basically provide a staging ground for your team to attack from. Here are examples of what they look like.

You use them to sometimes augemt your Team or hurt an opponent's. More Examples of these are:

Depending on certain conditions these can have a game changing effect on the Match. (Examples coming soon)

hope this answers any questions you might have

Thanks Heavy Oct. I've been thinking of this idea for awhile now.

BrainWave October 10th, 2009 2:17 AM

Your concepts on monstructs are interesting. Your game really looks promising here.

Jayje October 10th, 2009 9:20 AM

thanks. i try to do a bit better each day

Jayje October 18th, 2009 3:55 PM

here's a video showing how Monstructs are made. ENJOY!!

skrullman October 20th, 2009 5:12 AM

I don't know what to say
Looks Good

thanks. you had me concerned a bit when you said that first part. lol

|Maximus| October 20th, 2009 3:25 PM

It looks ok. You need to add more stuff into it. I used to have that problem, you get right to the point without really explaining or adding detail. Add some more details. I don't know it's hard to explain.

Spikey-Eared Pichu October 20th, 2009 3:40 PM

The idea is good, very good actually. But, the 'Monstructs', and the graphics you're using are, in my opinion, a bit bland. I can relate that since your making a non-Pokemon fangame that the only other decent sprites out there for RPG Maker XP are the ones it comes with, but why not spice em up a bit?

Jayje October 21st, 2009 9:15 AM

well the monstruct are made by me. and the tiles are what they are. i really don't want to use ripped tiles if i can help it.

here's a look at the Emporium, you one stop shop for just about everything.

GoOnRed November 18th, 2009 11:19 AM

Good Luck for your project.
It's strange, but I like your game. ^^

Jayje November 18th, 2009 10:33 PM

Jayje December 20th, 2009 4:39 AM

hope you like' em. l8rs

The Dewitty December 20th, 2009 4:49 AM

Game looks good. Though, your battle stuff needs to be polished a bit.

Jayje December 20th, 2009 5:10 AM
