First Post! Yay! So this is the start of my solo GameDev thread. Up until this point, I’ve just been working on concept design and planning for my game, but with the purchase of a capable computer (UE4 and Mac don’t get along) I hope to be moving to actual development very soon! So let’s start with a little bit about myself.
Current Occupation: A homeschooled sophomore in highschool.
Hobbies: Reading fantasy/sifi books, video gaming, policy debate, surfing tumblr, and procrastinating on homework.
Loves: Good stories, Great story telling, Compelling music, my boat load of fandoms, and my cat, Kitty.
So I’ve always loved the fantasy genre whether it be books, tv shows or video games. And there was this really cool game I used to play when I was a smol child called Fate. It was a magic filled, 3rd person, dungeon crawler RPG on our ancient HP laptop. And I swear it was the coolest thing I had ever played and its still my all-time favorite video game. But when that computer crashed for the 6th time, we lost it. So I started wondering what I would have to do to recreate that game with some tweaks and make it even cooler. And thats what got me into coding and game design. The idea has evolved a lot since then, with aspects from other games incorporated, to make The Realms.
Genre: Fantasy RPG
Platforms: PC (native), Mac, console
Status: Design, Early Development
I’ll update soon about more of the gameplay and my new computer when it arrives!
