It'd be cooler if you had the option of changing the jobs. Give the mom a monk class for one battle, a summoner or whatnot for the next, and so on. Definitly would be better than just having a boring healer around.

I think the point is that you don't need to keep posting the same threads. I personally think the game looks good - but as Radix said, a preview or blog would be much better and easier, rather than posting a new thread every time you decide to change something within your game. I'm not being mean, just offering some advice.

yes, but as Ive stated, its not because something in the game changed, it was because of the flamewars they were being turned into, admitedly I was no angel. I would have love just one long thread showing the progress of my work.

Yeh well flamewars happen all the time.
Nobody else deletes their threads and posts them again.

I see your point but a blog or preview would be far more easier O_o

Dude, with your mother following you around and such, and giving everyone different jobs and such, why not just make them the Partridge Family and travel around the world in a technicolor bus.

Anyway, the one screen you've shown does look nice, it's well detailed. From your story, it sounds nice, but I really, really think you should link up with someone with a bit more experience. You said yourself you couldn't program a platformer, so what makes you think you can tackle an RPG? We're talking inventory, stats, menu, saving; and that's just quickly off the top of my head what is required (well not required, but expected certainly) besides a battle system. That's a hell of a lot of work, then we add to that your relative inexperience for game design, we're adding up to a formula for disaster. RPG's are all about balance, when the balance goes off, the gameplay seriously suffers. Balance is an extremely hard thing to get right, especially when you are inexperienced.

Anyway, good luck either way, just trying to pass along a few thoughts.

I like the art and that, but please please please get rid of the mother idea. It must be the worst idea for an RPG I've heard of. Quite a lot of people would be ashamed to go on a trip with their mum.

And anyway, aren't these sort of RPG a lot to do with coming-of-age? I mean, you're meant to leave home, saying goodbye to "Mom" (shudder) and become a monster-killing man, not bring Mummy with you so she can give you biscuits and suck your nob every two minutes.

Right. Okay. I can easily make simple menus using counters. I can easily make 8-direction movements. I need to learn how to do the whole save feature. Keaton (I think) is helping me with battle system. Not sure about inventory at the moment.

The whole Idea of the story is that you went with your mother, but now, it looks like youll either be going alone or with your brother lol. Seeming as so many people are ashamed to be seen with their mothers, which I personally find really sad, they must have embarrasing mothers because mines quite with it, any whoo we'll see. This WILL NOT be a disaster.

I actually think the mother idea isn't that bad, it's different.

Now that I think about it, Noodle has a very good point. I mean it's always the Hero and his friends adventures, not family vaction.
