MAGS January “Crossover” (OPEN)
« on: 01 Jan 2019, 02:29 »
Happy New Year.
May 2019 take all the best bits from previous years and mash them together to create the best year yet. Talking of mashing things up:

Topic: Crossover
Chosen by: Danvzare



Description:
The hot new trend recently has been cinematic universes. Everything's got to be connected to everything else! So that's why the challenge this month is to pick two or more works of fiction and combine them.

Do you have two games you made before that you want to make a sequel to? Then now's your chance!
Never made a game before? Then why not have Sherlock Holmes meet Dracula!
Don't have any art skills? Make a special crossover episode between Reality on the Norm and Maniac Mansion Mania!

The possibilities are endless! Just make sure it's combining two or more works of fiction, regardless of whether those works of fiction are games, movies, books, or comics, that you or someone else has made. As long as it's possible to see the original source materials, then you're good to go.

Special Guidelines:
If you're making a crossover/sequel to two of your past games. You are allowed to reuse the sprites from those past games, and if necessary, a background or two.
Of course, all publically available assets can be used at any time.

So, it's just 2 of any famous characters: Bugs bunny meets Frankenstein,   Barney Rubble meets Dr Jekyll,  Sherlock Holmes meets Agather Christie.....

Is this correct?

If doesn't just have to be famous characters.
You could have your "The Rat Pack" crossover with Cat's "Cornelius Cat", assuming you got her permission.
You could even have more than two if you wanted do be a bit more ambitious. Or even crossover the settings instead of the characters (assuming the settings are recognizable enough).

I think TheFrighther's joke perfectly sums up the general idea.  :-D

It's kind of hard for me to come up with good crossovers for my characters since most of the games take place in different centuries,
but I've been toying with the idea of having the viking guardsman meeting the pope...

You can always divert a bit from "historically correct" and go with "historical parody"... then all is game.  ;)
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Or maybe you could do a meeting with an historical-legendary figure as Prester John.

If I weren't so busy with other things... *sigh*

Though I admit, it would be kind of fun to see our beloved cat-burglar-turned-paranormal-investigator, Trilby, team up with another AGS hero.

Maybe you could team up with someone else to make it an RoN game?
If you and/or someone else could come up with all the ideas I'd even be willing to do graphics and the programming if no one better could be found.

That'd be an interesting thought--maybe one of my previous characters, like my skunk angel Rosaura helping Mika Huy for instance.

But, back on the current topic of this thread--best of luck to all who enter this.

Captain Disaster meets Troll Song would be fun... sadly I don't think I'll be able to do MAGS this month though.

Well, I'm planning to do a crossover of Thomas Carnacki, ghost finder and Armand Broussard, werewolf hunter. I haven't figured out the story yet, but I do have some game play ideas and made the base sprites for the two characters this weekend.

If anyone needs some characters or backgrounds this week, let me know. I could use the practice while trying to figure out details of my game. If no on needs the help, I might just make some generic stuff that anyone can use for this and any future MAGs.

I'm glad my chosen topic has sparked up so much discussion and ideas.
For a while there, I was worried that my topic was a bit too open-ended.

I know I probably won't make it in time as I'll be very busy the next two weeks, but just to be sure, it's okay to use resources downloaded from here, right?

Of course. All publicly available assets can be used.  (nod)

The last line says "Of course, all publically available assets can be used at any time." So I'd say yeah. As long as you stick within any MMM rules it should be no problem.
If you need any help being able to complete your game, feel free to message me. If you need characters made, a couple of animations, a couple of backgrounds, or grunt work level coding. I'd even be willing to convert MMM assets to the Tumbleweed template.

Hmmm, didn't know there were rules to follow about the MMM world, I'll check that out.
Thanks both for your answers!
I'll keep in mind your offering VampireWombat, I'm super bad at drawing and wouldn't mind getting some help for the (only) background I did for this game.

Edit: oh, BTW, I'm trying to crossover MM with Alice in Wonderland.

I'm not sure if there are any rules beyond not trying to sell games.

Well, if you need any Alice in Wonderland characters, backgrounds , or items made into MMM style, let me know.
