I have an idea for my next game though it might take some time to realize and finish it. And the title is provisoric at the moment.
In this thread I will keep you updated on my progress.


Let's start with these pictures (the game screen will be bigger):

@Mystery
I just noticed this new thread and I must say you are spoiling us. :) This pics looks just great!!!! :D I also look forwards to the enclosured music and of course the mind crackers you sure will put in. ;)

But I have only one small request? Can you please put in a save option again, if it's possible? However, I look forward to play your new game as always. Take your time for it. I know it's gonna be a fantastic game again. ;)

Mistery
10-31-2006, 11:54:54
Don't bother Adventure, I'll take my time on it ;)
And thanks :hug2:

Oh, and the save function, yes M'am :D

Mistery

Thanks a lot :D

Well, this is a larger project which will need a lot of time to finish.
And since I'm trying to make another game that I can submit in a game contest, it will take even longer until See Legend will be available. But I haven't given up on this one.

How's the game progressing Mistery? :D

Mistery
10-09-2007, 20:41:38
I'm stuck :haha:

Well, I have 3 projects that I'm working on, but due to some real life issues that needed a lot of time and energy, I haven't been able to advance as I wanted to.
But the projects will be finished one day ;)

Mistery
12-08-2007, 20:21:29
I'm double posting because my last post is many weeks old ;)

The full game:
As mentioned, I would like to make this game more professional than my previous games. This is really my "dream project" for which I'm ready to invest a lot of time. The planned features are for example:
- non-linear storyline (different paths possible upon the players' choices)
- realistic screen backgrounds and items
- different islands and cultures to explore
- animated characters with lip-sync (voice acting)
- some RPG features (like status bars); although the game will be a point-and-click adventure


For this reason, it will take me many months (even up to 2-3 years) to finish the full game; and I will also have to look for some skilled people who could take care of the creation of the 3D characters and their animation as this is my week point. It might also be that the full game won't be for free, I can't tell yet, it's too far away.


The preview game:
However, I've decided to create the "Sea Legend - Preview Game", which won't have the full quality and features of the planned full game (especially the 3D-characters with lip-sync won't be available for sure :P). Also the number of locations will be very limited compared to the full game. But I try to implement the realistic screens already here, and make it an interesting point-and-click adventure game with a mystical atmosphere :)

I'll keep you updated on this Preview Game during the next weeks, but I can't tell anything about the release date at this moment apart from "some day next year" ;)

cant wait for it. hey are mods allowed to double post?:?: your making might take a few years cause its been 2 years since this is still in making. long wait. but if your trying your best on making it with Aventure Maker then thats why. so your doing a good job.

Mistery
02-05-2008, 15:17:31
No, mods are not allowed to multiple post either, but my last post was 1 week ago - and after so many days members won't have troubles either if they double post ;)

Well, 2 years ago I had the idea - but I haven't been able to work on it for a long time - so it's not that I'm constantly working on it since 2 years. There are times when other things need to be done in real life, and I have also made 2 other games in the meantime ;)

I like the hut on the deserted island image. I can see a professor and a radio made of coconuts in the future. Oh dang, I hope I didn't give the plot away.

Mistery

Shhhhht, don't give away more secrets :haha: ;)

I must say, I love the picture of the hut, dear wonderful alien :hug2:

Wonderful graphics, dear alien! :o I so can't wait for the preview game to be done. (I know you can't say when it will be done, considering all your alienish projects and research you're currently working on. :P) Can I spend my next vacation in your beach hut, though? :D

Looks great, and I can't wait! :hug2:

Mistery
02-19-2008, 07:35:33
Thank you very much :hug2:

Yep, pretty much going on here... :P
But of course I'm also impatient to finish it, lol.

Mistery
03-31-2008, 05:16:58
Since my previous post is more than a month old, I'm double posting exceptionally ;)

Unfortunately I had a lot of other things to take care of in the past weeks, so that I didn't work on the game. But of course it was very often present in my head, and I've had some ideas in the meantime.

Now I hope that I can get back to it again. Currently I'm creating some artwork, and also test out different things - for example the interface and scripting solutions.
I'm not sure yet how the interface will look, but I'm posting one of my technical test screens (as you see the items are not yet created, so I've used simple images as placeholder ;)). Also the screens will be bigger with 800x600 pixels, this image is resized.

Although I'm pretty sure that the final version will look completely different from that. So just to tell you that I'm planning to finish this game some time this year.

So here a screen of a room (resized):

And here a technical screenshot from one of my tests (resized):

As a fellow game developer, I understand how you feel. I'm currently working on a project with some of my friends to create this brain killing puzzle game, and sometimes we wish it was just finished. It takes a lot of effort, patience, coffee and most important of all creativity and dedication.
I thus encourage you to keep up the fantastic work (the game's graphics remind me of Myst) and I'm sure many of GH's members think the same I do: your work is simply amazing and most certainly worth waiting for.
Sincere regards, and best of luck in this project.

Mistery
04-02-2008, 16:00:02
Thank you very much for your encouraging words :)

Yes, you are right - it takes a lot of effort, patience, coffee, creativity and dedication - I couldn't have said it better.
But I'll finish it some day this year, and that will be a happy day :D

Good luck for your project, too!

Adventure
04-02-2008, 23:03:51
Wow, those graphics look amazing Mystery. :o They really get better and better with every game. :) Of course I can't wait to play it, although I can bring up the patience. :P ;) But besides the final graphics I am also very curious what kind of mind crackers you will put in this time. And I am sure the music will be nice and enjoyable to listen to aswell. :)The music was what make it a pleasure to replay Save the earth several times. ;) Keep up the GREAT work! :appl:

EscapeGirl
04-03-2008, 19:54:44
How did I miss your recent post?! :o :shy:

Well, I think it looks great, and if you ask me, your hard work definitely is showing in the screenshots you have provided now (and previously). I am so looking forward to playing your game, but I, too, can exercise patience. :P I'll put another pot of coffee on. ;) :applause:

Mistery
04-03-2008, 20:22:00

(It's probably going to take a long time until I can finish it, but I try to keep you updated - and I also need some motivators like you ;))

How's it progressing? I'm so envious of your talent. :appl: I'm inspired, but my little creations are limited to letters and numbers. But Lexi :girl:(The Cutest and Smartest Grandkidlet In The Whole World) doesn't mind. So there:P!

Hi GrannyPeggy,

Well, the past months have been to busy with work, and I didn't find much time for my hobbies :(
But I hope that over my Christmas vacation I can advance again a bit :)

It's great to hear that you are creating little games for your grandchild! :D :hug2:

just checking in to see or there is any progress in sea legend
this game is gonna be the"creme de la creme "of the games, i think.
still waiting in tension :haha:

Mistery
03-04-2009, 22:45:46
Well, since January I'm working full time in a new challenging position, which leaves me very little spare time. So my progress is very slow on this game :S But since this is my dream game that I want to make really well and with nice features, it will take many months to finish it. :sad:

However, in the meantime I'm releasing short games from time to time. For example "In Somnia (http://www.gamershood.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15200)" has been released just a few days ago :)

Thanks for your interest in Sea Legend, I'll keep you updated on my progress from time to time. :hug2:

I'm progressing slowly, I'll need some months to create all the artwork, before I can think of putting the game together.

Anyhow, here's two pics (both still work in progress):

When I graduate and my brain isn't fried anymore, I'll catch up on your games. In Somnia and In Somnia the sequel. Then I'll be nice and prepared for the release of Sea Legend. :D

Mistery
05-06-2009, 22:56:03
Thanks Escape :hug2:
Yes, I hope that you'll get time to play them after your graduation, I'll be happy to receive a feedback if you like them :)

But well, for Sea Legend patience is needed :) I'm still not an experienced 3D modeler, so it takes me a lot of time to create artwork.
