I suppose that many of you have been wondering why I haven't been uploading much of anything in a while. Some of you I have told I was hard at work on a rather ambitious project. Often, for the My Little Mages pictures, I see comments like "If this was a game, I would play the s**t out of it". Well, your wish shall be granted.
These are a handful of pre-alpha screenshots for what will be "My Little Mages: The RPG". It is being built in Gamemaker Studio and I have my good friend Andy already composing some top-quality music for it. You can see a sample of his work here [link]
It will be a Japanese style turn-based RPG with enough unique features to make it stand out. Such as swapping characters between the front row (actively attacking the enemies) and the back row (providing passive support abilities) in the middle of battle. And unique way of leveling up your characters by attaching gems in a flexible and non-linear way (haven't got a screenshot of that yet) to offer a lot of customization.
EDIT: I have some bad news for everyone. The development of My Little Mages the video game has been put on hold indefinitely. We were simply not able to drum up a team of willing individuals with the talents we were looking for. Leaving me to attempt to do all of the art assets, design, and programming on my own. And if we were to bring it back into production in the future, it would likely see an engine change. On the bright side, myself and Andy have been piecing together an original story over the development time based of some of the ideas and designs of My Little Mages. And we felt that it would be a better outlet for our efforts if we were to concentrate on that instead. Also, this will be in the form of a motion comic because programming a video game just brings about too many problems, and I have years of experience writing and illustrating an online comic whereas I'm an armature hobbyist programmer at best. The trailer for our new project will be uploaded in the coming weeks. And for that we will still be looking for more people to join our team to make the product that much better. So auditions are still open for background artists for starters.
PS- To elevate the rumors. Yes, this means that Hasbro's legal team had absolutely nothing to do with the discontinue of the game's development. The CnD on Fighting is Magic is a lot more involved and justified than simply people making a fan-made video game out of Hasbro's property.
