i'm making a game where you play as a deer. it's mostly exploration based, and has a spirited away type feel. so far i've got some laser puzzles going on. what gameplay stuff would you guys like to see?
If I was playing a game as a deer I'd want all the puzzle and shit to be optional. What'd be cool is if you can just wander around and find shit, some stuff might have a puzzle or something but something might just be a cave you wander through and at the end you find a couple of baby chicks or something
I would play Deer Myst with explorative platforming, or otherwise dealing with obstacles (if at a chill pace).
This is what I desire. Walking around "basking in nature" is not fun for me because I like games. Playing as a deer is fine, though.
they ain't fucking around
Imagine something like journey just as a deer in a forest
you could have winter and snow as well
If you make the gameplay heavily exploration based it might be a fun short game to play
>wandering through the forests
>exploring dank ruins
>Call in a human with a human call
>The human is unaware of the family of beavers making quick work of a tree behind him
>Beavers shout "TIMBER!" in their animal language
>Human turns around and is late to react and gets crushed
>Beaver family do a little victory dance
High capacity assault clip full of baby-seeking shells.

Let's all play together /v/!
>Curious hunter dude
>Come across scattered trail of moisture
>It has a thick but heavenly scent
>The smell of sex is getting stronger
>Emerge at a clearing
>Doe in heat or whatever the girl deers are called is waggling her little tail, with her dripping wet pussy twitching below
>Her ass is up in the air
>Doesn't notice you're there, she is lost in her thoughts fantasizing about being mounted and pounded
>The Endless Forest is a multiplayer online game and social screensaver, a virtual place where you can play with your friends.

Can you make the deer shoot lasers out of its eyes? Like when you are about to hit a deer in the car and the lights of your car shine on to it, sometimes it feels like the deers eyes shine back on to you.
Of course to match your spirited away type feel, the lasers would be _spiritual_ lasers and perhaps signing on them on things that aren't spiritual will destroy them and illuminate new paths. Doing things like this, I think you can build a deep message for the game using laser deer as a basis.
So you're making a mixture of Endless Forest, The Talos Principal and the Deer Hunter.
And you're using low poly 3d, thank fuck this is slowly becoming a trend among the indie kids, it looks so much better than the shitty pseudo retro muh pixels that look worse than NES games thing they've been doing.
Make a post apocalyptic game where you lead your baby deer around and keep it from dying. The baby deer will have dumb as shit ai and paper thin health. It will be a hindrance such that Most of the time youll be finding ways to kill it just to see it die. And your main goal will turn from keeping it alive into blood lust for that stupid noisy piece of shit baby deer. Kind of like cormac McCarthys the road.
>All these people who haven't played WC3
Yes. Animals think we're pretty weird. Not only do we make strange noises, we act as if we're a prey animal yet we're one of the deadliest fuckers around. A human will calmly walk through a forest while every animal is concerned for its life.
There's this bird that mimics most of the sounds a human can make, even a photo camera. It starts mimicking the shutter sound. KCHT.
life is strange is one of my reference games in terms of art c:
Ah yes, the Lyre Bird. Also known as the "Liar" Bird because it can mimic all the birds around it and even non-bird noises.
The way we have sex is probably confusing as fuck.
"Why does the male not just stick it in"
"Why are they grunting like that"
"Why do they keep SWITCHING POSITIONS?"
"ALSO WHY ARE THEY FUCKING INFRONT OF ME?!"
>not being a gun conoisseur
>not having thousands of rounds of freedom
>not loving your raifu's ejection port every night
Ravens and other crow birds can also imitate humans and their noises pretty well if they really want to, but it takes more effort since imitation isn't as built in for them. Their intelligence makes up for it though.
Atleast someone knows
I'd answer her calls if you know what I mean
it's called a magical place for a reason
Centaurs are great, so horse pussy for me pls.
I will give you my opinion.
make the navigation as satisfying as possible.
A deer shout be able to quickly move around difficult terrain graciously.
I suggest to " texturize" the terrain with two levels of obstacles. One of homogeneous small obstacles that are automatically avoided without specific input from the player ( this is subtle and hard to achieve, would require adaptive animations). And a second level of thicker, more discretized obstacles that do require active avoidance.
My 2 cents.
Maybe some SFM artist will finally make some mounting animations...
But yeah I remember pretty much everything from the game, its a sad day when 'most' people here have no idea
Can we forage and decorate our antlers for breeding season?
You're the motherfucking boss of this park. There's a new pack in town and its your job to stay on top. This ain't no kindergarten shit though, this is lord of the flies, game of thrones shit. Do you play the benevolent ruler while secretly playing the new rivalling factions off against each other, or is it time to step up and rule with an iron fist? Is it time for mrs vole to takr a hoof the the cranium? Better watch out for them poachers too or they'll poison a bitch.
OP, remember that if I'm a fucking deer, I want to be able to rub and ram pretty much anything in the world with my horns.
If I cant rub and ram things with the horn theres no point in being a deer.
But honestly, with that artstyle all I want is to free-run through lush forests and shit and nothing else.
Make the running feel like its parkour with a human character, like Assassass games.
what do you think you could offer mate? :)
gosh that sounds really aggressive - please read in a friendly tone.
I want a button that lets me make deer noises.
Also maybe a sneaking mechanic to avoid wolves or hunter. A tiptoeing deer animation is required.
Sounds like it could be a fun game, good luck OP.
Put the deer in a overgrown industrial military robot construction plant. In the end when you escape your face gets torn and it's revealed you're a cyber T-1000 deer set out to kill Sarah Connor.
stop reminding me of what a failure I am.
no, not really.
It just kinda reinforces the point.
>15 year old furry produced like, two fucking pictures and a basic idea for a game
>somehow more compelling than the entire fucking industry and I'd rather talk about it than any AAA title in the last decade
Your art is pretty good for a fifteen year old. I wont get on to the topics you draw for, because I'm not a sperg who will whine about it.
Still, you're a little young to be posting here.
Then again i started lurking even younger at age 12.
I'm 22 now
that would actually be fucking awesome if done well.
>landing in trees
>hunting small animals
>hunting fucking wolves and shit
>add in a cool story with mythological/folklore shit going on
I want it. I really fucking want this game.
Damn OP some of this stuff is really good. I can't believe you're only 15.
unfortunately i don't know the source as the thread i saved it from 404ed before i could ask
but yeah a freeroam game with that kind of landscape where i can fly around and do eagle things would be goty forever. especially if i could watch the interactions of surfacebound creatures below me while cruising around
Rutting. Hear me out.
Not for pervy reasons, but defending your harem from outsider males could be fun.
Of course, that would need:
Fighting. Proper antler locking, you build your power and then smash in and lock up. Instead of health you have courage, lose all your courage and you have to run away. You will always lose a little courage, but you'll lose less if you "win" each headbutt. If you manage to completely parry the headbutt, you can hit the rival's actual body and really quickly drain their courage.
Avoid being hunted and shot.
Also, fuck laser puzzles, what the fuck does that have to do with being a deer? It'll just be a generic puzzle platformer with a deer skin.
>tfw when Scarface was bitten by Adder & died a slow, painful death.
Man, this show was brutal for an afternoon series aimed at kids.
>it spends every waking moment hunting for food
nope, and even if it did, what else is it going to do? Eagles don't have internet to shitpost with.
>and avoiding fights so it doesn't damage itself badly enough that it can't hunt.
I've seen eagles take on fucking wolves nigga, not much fights them because shit can't reach them.
>Clip still sounds better
Just call them mags if big words scare you so much
>not fighting wolves for fun
Check out this casual.
damn son I love that artstyle
but yeah pretty much try to make it something like Journey, you have to get from point a to point b
preferably keep it all nature, like you could implement something like going through all 4 seasons or something
is there someplace I can follow your progress
The show had a mouse give birth, then its newborn babies were caught by some birds and impaled on thorns. They show you them, impaled, with blood and everything.
Mr Pheasant lost his wife, went looking for her. Looked through a window and saw her cooked corpse on a farmer's table. The farmer then shoots Mr Pheasant.
That show was daaaaaark.
I'M SO WASTED, I'M SO WASTED!
mate i fight wolves everyday but i'm not an eagle, that's the difference.
do they fight wolves? or do they fight other, smaller birds like jackdaws. because that is understandable those guys are dicks.
I prefer to be on the other end.
They play "chase" with wolves and other dogs by nipping and diving at them and then continue to fly low to the ground.
Some also start fights between other animals like cats.
>studied art since childhood
>15 year old is already better at it than you are.
This is why I gave up on ever doing art professionally. You're definitely going places.
Now all you need is to draw stuff from actual good games.
i've made the terrible mistake of posting my tumblr somewhere above, haha. it's going to be pretty quiet on this game for a while until a trailer or something is released though
it was only dark because they anthropomorphized the animals, gave them voices. kids who grew up on farms or learned about wildlife would never be traumatized by the visual stuff.
i loved it really because the characters were genuinely in jeopardy, the word was truly dangerous and they were out of their element.
I know that feel, but with music.
That's the shitty (and good) thing about art. While you might be able to technically improve, it's not just about skill, there's more to artistic ability. No matter how much some people practice they'll never be as good as others, that's the shitty part, but the good is those who have that ability can express it and share it with us, let everyone experience it through their work
christ I sound like a fag right now
eh i'm the same. good enough at brass instruments to get me good scholarships to a good school but not good enough for conservatory or anything like that. i'm just glad i had the opportunity and ability to appreciate music even if i'm not exceptional.
if i have kids though i'll definitely try to instill love and practice of music while they're young so they can maybe achieve that highest level of skill and ability. or whatever they want really, drawing, music, sports, whatever.
It's people like you that makes brilliant works of art truly stand out. I'm not trying to be hurtful, it's just not everyone can be Da Vinci and that's fine. Plenty of people get by, by being perfectly mediocre.
If you're really passionate about it you'll keep at it, and who knows maybe you're a later bloomer. Don't give up on the dream anon.
