I think it's definitely a good idea if we can get one going.

ok, the first issue we need to discuss is the basic game format (genre) and our overall objectives (which is what kind of story do we want to tell)

Yeah, makes sense.

I'm not overly sure about either, other than that I'd like Sakura to have a decent role.

I vote an RPG.

I mean, seriously, we should do something less likely to rip off Persona and the rest of the SMT franchise!

the basic engine i was planning on using for game creation can do final fantasy six style rpgs easily, so we could do something with that excellent basis

i was thinking that we should maybe do a choice based rpg, complete with side quests and an extra mode.

What do you mean by "choice-based RPG"?

Oh?  What engine were you planning on using?

If you were planning on RM2K3, forget it.  Unless you can event a whole custom menu and battle system, it won't be worth your time to look like a cheap FF6 knockoff.

Also what Cherry said.

an rpg where choices during events lead to story paths and endings.

and no, rpg maker vx ace is what i plan on using xamusel.

i don't intend it looking like it ff 6 it's just that the battle system was mint in 6

Okay, that I can see being a better idea, lantz.

Thanks for clearing that one up.

alright well if everyone is cool with a turn based rpg as the game genre and the idea of a multi ending game as an objective then we can start planning properly.

I actually own a copy of VX Ace.

No need to buy it at present, lantz.

Yeah, that seems fine to me.

If necessary, Bittorrent....
