Loser Wars - Working Title
« on: 30 Jun 2005, 00:55 »
Hi all -

My buds and I love adventure games, so we decided one night to try and write our own.

We don't have a title as yet, but here's the plot in a nutshell:

A loser Star Wars fan wants to see the latest and greatest installment of his beloved epic. Being a loser procrastinator, he doesn't have a ticket. He needs to find a ticket somehow to get into the movie.

He learns from the movie theater usher that the star wars convention in town is giving away a free ticket in a raffle. So our hero rushed over to the convention to discover that his long-time nemesis got elected as club president, and refuses to allow him to enter the convention.

Our hero finds a way into the convention and then must figure out a way to win the raffle, and therefore the movie ticket. During the raffle, he is confronted by a little Anakin look-alike, and they fight (with toy light-sabers). The Anakin look alike is defeated, and our hero claims the ticket.

A little short, but it's our first shot at this, and we want to keep it manageable.

I will post updates as we get them, so far we're 99% on the story, 10% on the backgrounds, and 0% on everything else :)

Obligatory screens (well concept art)

The "two screenshots" rule Dark of Night refers to would be Rule 2 of the Forum Rules, which you may want to read. 

See also Rule 5:

Quote
The subject line must be the title of your game.
Working titles are okay, but if you don't have a title at all, then don't post yet!

Not trying to play moderator here; just trying to point this out to you so you can fix it before a moderator locks the thread

Boy you guys are quick.

I re-read the rules and quickly modified the post to include the screens.

They will be re-sized to fit (game is 640x480 16bit - artist's insistence :) ).

I'm thinking you must have speed-read the forum rules here.

I would like to point out rule #2:

2) A minimum of two (in-game) screenshots must be available.

The key words here are "in" and "game".  Concept art hardly counts.

When you've got some actual IN-GAME backgrounds to show, PM me and I'll unlock this thread.

Now having said all that mean ol' moderator stuff the game, albeit short, sounds pretty darn interesting.  Don't give up on it!
