Wow! Didn't expect this.
OK guys, I will start to respond and establish things here.
About the engine: I have looked into ZC and even downloaded it to my laptop. However, it was very glitchy and never saved. We could do a full-blown project on ZC, but it would leave us with little freedom. Also, somebody suggested we use a 3D engine, which would be a lot more impressive and free (as in freedom of gameplay). This would be much harder, however. I think we should use Gamemaker, but I have not purchased it. We would need somebody who owns the program and has it still up and running.
With that out of the way, let's assign temporary roles here.
Me(balloonofwar4): I'll appoint myself Head of Design for now. I will help design story and gameplay elements, as well as oversee other designers. I will also be the (temporary) head of this project.
Jade Fist: You talk a lot about possible engines, so I'll assume you are some kind of programmer. If you are, you are a coder. You will code and script the game as the designers tell it. If you do not know about programming, then I'll have you be a designer. You can help me come up with the lore of the game as well as possible gameplay mechanics/elements.
ihateghirahim: You should definitely be a level/overworld designer. You can help with plot points and gameplay ideas, too.
Dragoncat: You would make a good concept artist/sprite maker. I think your dragon transformation idea is very good. It could be implemented into the game very well. If no one else rejects it, I'm all for it. EDIT: About your last sentence, YES! That is a perfect idea!
Now comes the asking for help part. We NEED programmers/coders. We can sit here and say how we are going to make this great game and not get anything done because we have no one to actually make it real. PLEASE, if you have any knowledge at all in programming/coding and if you are somewhat interested in this project, make a post here and email me at [email protected]
. Also, we need more of everything. I was serious when i said that I wanted to make a ZD fan game. So if you are interested, feel free to suggest things on this thread. Also, ZD staff, where are you? You are just as welcome (if not more) to post suggestions. We could really use your storytelling prowess, GaroXicon. Axle, you have great gameplay ideas and story suggestions. With all of your help, we can make a great Zelda fan game for the greatest Zelda fan site, ZD.
