Hello! I don't really know much about making games but I want to learn and make something.
I'm starting a few days late but that's okay I guess. Anyways! Here's the overall idea I have:
Summary: Midnight Fortress is about a little fella exploring a fortress in the middle of the night, hence the name (which may change, not sure). They don't have a weapon, just a pair of gloves, their clothes and some improvised armor, but they are kind of strong and fast. They try explore the fortress in search of goodies and the like while dealing with the enemies that call said fortress home.
Gamplay: It is a simple sidescrolling platforming game. The idea is to have a big fortress with many secrets to explore. There are guards all around, and you can't defeat them, but you can knock em out. The idea I have is that once they encounter you and either you ecape or knock em out, they will know you're there and be on alert: If they encounter you in a room and you leave said room, after coming back that room will have stronger security. My idea is to have just the starting save point outside the fortress and some checkpoints here and there, so if you are defeated you can restart in a checkpoint until the game over, where you're thrown outside the fortress.
Goals: Make a working prototype like 5-8 rooms, learn stuff and have fun!
I'm using GameMaker for this and don't really have much done aside from the idea and this drawing
I hope everything goes well!
EDIT: I forgot! I don't really know how to make images show here so sorry for links. Also will probably post updates thingies on the twitter hashtag I think and over my twitter here.
DOUBLE EDIT: Learned how to show images here, so yeah! There's the drawing I did!
