As our search for the lost city dragged on, the party began to come apart. The hardships, the wild animals, the disease, these things we had come prepared for. It was the madness of our captain that would spell our doom.
Also, some enemies/bosses cannot be easily defeated with romantic love, for example, but are vulnerable to platonic or filial love, encouraging you to experiment with equipment and skill-trees related to multiple different kinds of love
Yeah I like that! I would want every villain and every citizen to be different, and looks can be deceiving, so you never know what to expect. And the different kinds of love should have different uses in the game.
So. This post now has more than double the notes on it that the original comment did. I think that means Tumblr has won some sort of prize. Hooray! Tumblr makes carrying on a conversation near impossible so rather than respond to a bunch of individual comments I just want to take this opportunity to say to all the people who have said how much you’d like to play this game, cool! You’re awesome. I wish I had a finished game to give you right now.
To all the people who have commented that you’d like to make a game kind of like this yourself, yeah, go for it. Don’t let anything stop you! To those few of you who have commented that you want to make THIS game… um… no? This game pitch was made by me. Not magical Tumblr fairies. And even if I wanted to make this game, I don’t think I could, since I don’t have the rights to Daft Punk’s music. Also I don’t actually know anything about making games. Just drawing pictures. :-/
Angela Melick, author of Wasted Talent (http://www.wastedtalent.ca/) drew an awesome story for Megafauna about a future with genetically altered ecosystems. It takes on more than one viewpoint and is definitely worth a read!
Today I’m learning a lot about traditional Indian domestic architecture. These styles seem every bit as sophisticated as architecture from Europe or China at the same time period. But I’m glad there’s only a few pages of this, because I feel like there’s a lot more research I could do.
Jeri Weaver and Ian Thomas tell a tale of caution, but also of hope in ‘A Grandmother’s Tale’. Jeri is one of the founding members of Gurukitty Studios, another great Vancouver comics studio worth checking out!
Zheng He’s like, “You went exploring in a LIFEBOAT?”
Zheng He’s armada sailed to Southeast Asia, India, and East Africa. They, or other ships of this kind, probably sailed to Australia. Did Zheng He make it farther? Technologically speaking, he could have, although there is no solid evidence that he made the effort (despite books written on the subject claiming otherwise). The records were burned and the ships destroyed when he returned to China. Nowhere else in the world had any goods the Chinese government valued enough to keep sending out ships.
