After browsing this forum for over a year, I finally decided to create a game. So me and some friends have banded together in hopes of creating our first game together. For me this is my first real programming with java(Everything else has been browsing through other peoples games)
Before one starts to read, it should be noted that all textures are mostly place holders until our artist can create some. Also only a very simple map and hud have been added so far.
We are creating this game using LibGDX, mostly because we want to create for Android and IOs at the same time.
So this will be a Mobile game only. The end goal is a mix of learning how to create a game as a group, and to make some money, this will be a F2P model, where if a user pays money they will only have the advantage of not having to wait for certain things to refill (Like building a structure, or refilling stamina)The Game
The game is based around two modes.
Building mode: In this mode you manage your "city". You buy and place buildings, each building has a purpose, some create income, others give quests and some because you want something pretty to look at. During the beginning of the game, you will only have 4-9 tiles to work with as the rest will be covered by a fog. To push back the fog you will need to upgrade your Mystic Tower, which requires materials / gold (Resources at the top). Each buildings can be upgraded, but you need to be a certain level to do so, also the higher level you are the variety of buildings can be bought(Like more decorations)
In the map there will be placed resources that can be mined, and objects that need to be removed.
Adventure mode: In this mode you use your resources to buy packs of cards and have card battles. Right now, nothing has been created for this, so all combat mechanics are still in the air, and not much has been decided yet. End goal is to have something similar to "Magic the Gathering" but with some changes, but not sure yet still being discussed. As battles are fought stamina is gained and exp is earned. Stamina regenerates over time, even if the player inst in the game.Things to do
- Add Buildings
- Resource Income
- Entire Adventure Mode
- Better Textures
- A lot more things that I have forgotten
Also I know this post does little justice to our actually idea for the game, but until we have it working 100% this will have to do.
(Yes I know this entire thing has terrible grammar, but I don't do grammar)
