MACROMEDIA FLASH 8 FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
y'know unless... I'm using Unity or something.
Hey I mentioned this in my last blog post, I started a new lil in-between project game a couple days ago. It's a kind of adventure game based on making decisions and pickin' sides. You play one full school year as a 15-16 year old girl, and you'll have to draw the line on whether or not you wanna smoke, how much you like to get drunk, if you wanna have sex and who with, and it's kind of inspired by the Walking Dead game in that every decision WILL put you under pressure and fuck you over either way.
There'll be parties and holidays n stuff (if you have any friends) to be a catalyst, but inbetween that it's just gonna be doing homework and blowing off one group of friends to meet up with another.
The idea came from me asking how would you make Bully but with girls? but it turns out I'm a sexist, a retard, and have probably never made a game before. So after trying to coax people into talking about game design for a couple pages I actually got really interested in the idea, scooped it up n ran off with it. So a lot of this game is about getting shit on by people you don't like, and accidentally realising you're a bully to someone else, which is in my experience how it happens in real life.
So here it is after a couple days! I'm really happy with my ability to generate 600 students in half a second. Right now they're all girls and don't have photos, and you just get a new friend and new statuses every day. No conflicts yet.
In brainstorming this I made a really really strange application that snatches the profile pic of a random facebook userID every couple seconds. It is weird and I feel weird for doing it. In this actual game I obviously would have to draw a fuck-tonne of tiny avatars that LOOK LIKE real photos or something.
...oh and right now it's called "Bitch". I came up with that name on the spot, not sure about it. It's good for a lot of reasons:
-It sets the tone that this game is not a fucking High School Musical dating sim, it has the capacity to be as harsh and sad and real as it needs to be.
-When you're 16, any girl you don't like is automatically "a bitch". Partly cos you just learned how to swear.
-Bitch is a slang term that denotes hierarchy, which is relevant to this game
-Bitch is a slang term as a verb: to bitch. To bitch about someone behind their back, bitchiness, to demean someone.
-CANIS CANEM EDIT! Bully was released in Europe as "Dog Eat Dog".
-Ed McMillen made a game called "CUNT" and he's a cool guy, sssoooooo
Reason's it's a bad name:
-I have to explain why it's a good name.
...So yeah if this project takes less than a month and I can put it on Newgrounds, I'll be VERY PLEASED WITH IT!
