Quest for Change: So You Want to Be a Bum?
« 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 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

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

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.

No. Im telling you to use the modify button rather than triple posting before someone else lays into you about it.
