Title: A game with robots
it is a massive work in progress.

An RPG created in RPG Maker VX Ace.

Rated PG.

************
*Introduction-*
************
Hello my name is unimportant. Call me Chuckles, I enjoy video games and Robots (mainly Gundam) I decided to make a game with ROBOTS and the future.


*****
*Plot*
*****
You are a Pilot for your countries army. Pilots are super soldiers who can use crystal tech. You are sent on a mission to find the base of a Rebel hide out. In the last 6 years the northern island of {insert country name here} has been under control of the Rebels, they do not like the form of government and wish to take the island country for them selves. The Government fought back with the best they had... Mechs. The mechs first became the backup before becoming their first line of defence but as the Mechs kept falling the Rebels took everything they could from them trying to build their own. Now the country is at a balance, they look at each other over the bay waiting for someone to make a move. In order to get back the island The Government decided to send in Pilots, the super soldiers who are used in space exploration and Mobile Suits. The outside world has done nothing to interfere with the troubles going on except for a large country called Ivory who have provided The Government with crystal tech. Crystal tech is a relatively new technology only found deep in space, it can be used to power cities and countries for millennium. A handfull can power a country for a decade. If put into weapons they can become dangerous and could destroy the planet if it is in dangerous amounts.

So it's great to see a new project being worked on, and your idea definitely has potential, though right now it's definitely a diamond in the rough.

The way you've built this up, there are two driving forces in this world - Mechs and Crystal Tech, and the two warring factions(The Government and the Rebels, if I'm reading this correctly?) seem to be at a stalemate, though this is about to be upset with Ivory providing Crystal Tech to the Government, right? What motivations does Ivory have to keep the current government in power? Why is the Government sending Pilots into the conflict if they're meant for space exploration?

The story paragraph may be better suited as 2 or even 3 paragraphs for clarity's sake.

Some of these features don't really seem like features, and others seem to be "well, DUH" kinds of features. For instance, Communism, War, #SWaG, and Radiation don't really seem to be features of the game so much as elements of your game world. On the other hand, you have some more obvious features that honestly I don't think you really needed to list. A linear story just means that a player has no choices in gameplay - Almost every game has a linear story, so it's not really a feature so much as a defining characteristic. A brand new world is almost a given, considering that you're creating an original game.

There are huge empty regions in the southern map, and you seem to have used the ellipse tool to draw the mainland, which makes for a boring, symmetrical island. I'd recommend reading some mapping tutorials here, as their principles will apply to any RPG map, not just Pokemon.

So the Alpha is unplayable? Why should I download it, then? As an aside, the Alpha of a game is meant to indicate that your game is "feature-complete," meaning its main mechanics all work, and that you're ready to test whether or not your game is fun. From what you've said, I'm not entirely sure that what you're calling an Alpha actually demonstrates any gameplay.

All things considered, you've made your first steps towards making this project a reality, and I wish you the best of luck, and can't wait to see where it goes next. It's a difficult process, but we've all gotta start somewhere.


If you're one of the participants of PC Game Jam 2, sorry for the lack of updates. Frankly I'm busy and overtaxed with school stuff and my own commercial project right now, and don't know when I'll get to the remaining entries.
Current Agenda: Midterms, Game Theory Class Project, Game Project(Segmented Prototype)
