Ok, before I go whole-hog on this, I'd like to get your opinions.
I'm definitely not one of the "AGS big boys", nor would I want to take down the epic quality bar set by the great game makers of the forums, but I'd love to participate with something.
At first, I wanted to make a text-adventure game like the one I did for OROW, Procrastinator, only better, of course. Then my thoughts shifted to an old idea I had: a text-mode shoot 'em up inspired by '90s DOS action games. So I made this prototype:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1QgfQDbnsY
Before I'm at a level of a GiP thread, would you guys be interested in playing a text-mode action game? Would you want it in the bake sale? (Of course, after I put in all the elements I want and actually make it a game - i.e. randomly generated levels, power-ups, music, actual backgrounds, etc.)
Of course, the game is NOT text-mode, but it's at least inspired from that - this would solve numerous problems for me, including having to do artwork, and I really like the vibe it gives off.
I know that showing a very, very basic prototype concocted in 4 hours isn't much to base a judgement on, but should I continue working on this in the hopes of getting it in the bake sale?
Thanks for reading and watching, and hopefully replying!
