EBF5: Leftover Ideas

Hey guys, this is a list of some leftover stuff that won’t be in the EBF5 at launch, but I’d like to add to the game later.

• A battle arena dungeon, where players must fight waves of enemies solo. Combat with just one character is something I haven’t explored much in the series, and it could add a very interesting challenge to the game. Additionally, summons could be disabled, forcing you to rely only on each character’s unique skills. Even a regular foe could feel like a boss fight.
• A library dungeon, with paper cut-out style enemies. Trying out different art styles is fun, and a dungeon like this could make it work nicely in context too. It also let’s me use a lot of my old sketches of tanks and robots in the game. Plus a library could be filled with lots of lore and information, if that’s something people would like to see more of.
• Hidden portable game consoles, which would initiate battles against one-of-a-kind pixel-art foes. The aim is to have something like a treasure chest, except the treasure is that you get a chance to capture a rare enemy. This is another chance to play with different art styles, and it’s likely I could even host another foe competition for this one.
• Challenge runs - I’ve mentioned this before, but I’d like to add the option to replay the game with some differences, including: shuffled equipment locations, different weather, stronger foes, and various other little changes that could make the game feel fresh for another playthrough.

Anyhow, this list will probably still grow as I think of more interesting ideas. And ya’ll better buy the game if you want me to keep working on it after launch.

These ideas sound like a lot of fun! Fighting with only two characters would also be cool as a throwback to EBF 1 and 2. Another option for a challenge run l thought of is maybe adding something of a cooldown to regular/mp moves, so you can no longer just spam the same buffs/attacks over and over again in the same battle. Late-game has so many combat-options that this might not really make a real impact, but maybe combined with other challenges it could really add to the challenge during a second playthrough :]

The Library Dungeon sounds like a fun way to get the paper cut out cutscene versions of the characters animated and in a real fight, and seeing them demade into Snes, Gameboy, or even NES level graphics sounds fun too.
I'd totally pay for a DLC like that, if it provided enough new content.          
Challenge runs sound fun too, though unless it shakes up the game significantly, I wouldn't touch it myself. Good for the people who like that sort of thing though.

All of these sound cool, and I especially like the library dungeon and hidden portable game console ideas.

Hmm a solo-battle arena? Best hope Natz's baps would be of help defending herself, maybe they can further prove Anna's question... XD

Do you know when the alpha version is coming out? I don't know if I used that correctly, but I'm basically asking when Version 1.0 will be released.

I really dig the library dungeon idea! I'd also be a fan of some kind of post-game miniquests, focusing on humor...

libarary dungeon sounds neat. That portable console bosses kinda sound a bit like the Glitch from EBF 3

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but I hope the challange run idea won't only be challenges for the sake of difficulty. I'd love to see some fun wacky conditions forced on my run that aren't necessarily meant to be hard.

Yeah, a lot of the options won't be harder, they'll just be different.

How about a battle against several crossover characters like Cloud, and getting a chance at getting his arsenal?

Challenge runs? Last night I dreamed you'd bungled everyone's equips, so we had things like Lance in a maid dress or Anna with a gun.
