Title: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: DeadSuperHero on 20 Jul 2004, 17:53
With all of the other QFG-based games, I figured I might as well make my own.
You play as a bum named Chuck Hugh. It's a peaceful day in Manhattan when trouble begins. You were sleeping happily in a cardboard box when, suddenly, a crew of garbagemen picked up the box with you in it. The crew drives away, and you fall out.
  Now it's all about revenge. You must build up your status from beggar to billionare, street magician to wizard, and pickpocket to mafia leader. In a bizzare twist, you have to work almost everywhere. You steal a janitor's suit and clean up a high school. Then you meet a scientist giving a lecture. You gain intelligence by talking to him.
This game will be made in VGA and will have day-night fading cycle. I'm currently looking for background artists, so if you're interested, show your work here.

Sounds interesting enough ... but is it actually in production?  Or do you only have the plot/story idea?

This is the wrong area to be asking/seeking a background artist.  ACR - need help with a game (http://www.agsforums.com/yabb/index.php?topic=10001.0) is where you should post if you're looking for help.

Also, most will want more than a short plot description before signing up to help on a new project.

I'm not trying to be rude ... just helpful :)

Good luck with your game.

It already is in production. The scripting's really complex, though.

Just so you know, the bum was taken from Robin Hood: Conquest of the Longbow. I took it 'cause it looked AWESOME.  :D

triple post.. please use the damn modity button and you take on too many projects, rip graphics, then offer people help with THEIR graphics... that makes no sense at all.

Just because I SOMETIMES rip graphics doesn't mean I ALWAYS rip graphics.

Here's some pics I'm working on, just to show you I don't rip sprite graphics all the time. >:(

ffs, you went and double posted AGAIN...

use the modify button!

About those graphics you seem to be making a new one before you have mproved on the last one, not very useful to you.

What do you mean not useful to me?
And where's the modify button?
Title: Re: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: Mr Jake on 21 Jul 2004, 16:13
top right of your last post.

and what I mean is posting 'what do you think of my background'

'Oh look I made another' with out changing the first is useless.

Cut me some slack, hotspot.

Post by: Mr Jake on 21 Jul 2004, 16:23
why? you asked what I meant and I told you.
Title: Re: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: DeadSuperHero on 21 Jul 2004, 16:28
Well, yeah, but it seems that you keep complianing about every freakin' thing I do. It's like you're just tried to make me feel bad or something.
I mean, geez, couldn't you write something POSITIVE? :'(
Title: Re: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: Mr Jake on 21 Jul 2004, 16:29
No. Im telling you to use the modify button rather than triple posting before someone else lays into you about it.
Title: Re: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: DeadSuperHero on 21 Jul 2004, 16:29
Well, what should I modify?
And what's triple posting, anyway?

Sorry. It's just that I'm REALLY bored and have nothing to do other than making games and talking to people in here.  :-[

you can talk to people in less posts. and hotspot, calm down a little. he is a n00b after all. and apparantley his eyes aren't too good so cut him some slack.
Title: Re: Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
Post by: DeadSuperHero on 21 Jul 2004, 17:56
what's a  n00b? And what do you mean my eyes aren't too good?

A n00b is a newbie, it's a term used in a slightly derogatory sense. I guess that "his eyes aren't too good" refers to your not seeing the modify button.

Anyhow, I for one hope you actually finish these games, and I also hope that you have the motivation needed to do so.
