We've always wanted to collaborate on a project together and produce something we can all call our own. After discussing with some Origin members, I discovered that the consensus is a turn-based strategy game.

Why a turn based strategy game?

First of all, developing a game that involves little real-time player-to-player interaction is definitely within the capacities of the people here. It's definitely something we can all do together successfully.

Second of all, strategy suits Origin. We debate, discuss, philosophize; we like games that require us to think. We love forming strategies. It'll definitely allow us to be more focused and enthusiastic about the project.

Third of all, a turn-based strategy game is easy to modularize—A can make maps 1-5, B can make maps 6-8, and so on. It's not something that will grind to a halt when my schedule peaks. It's something we can work on progressively and measure progress continually on.

Origin's full of very capable individuals, and I'm confident we can achieve our goals. I can personally identify at least 5 members who are able and willing to take part in the project. How better to celebrate our 7th year of existence than by making a game?

If you're interested, I will post the details in a separate forum we will be using for all further details and discussions regarding the project: http://originxt.com/cat/187

also, it was a project being done by one guy, and he wanted to do it his way, rather than by the way of a concensus.

No, you may not

(the first case where I reject the consensus)

So what was this game going to be anyhow? It's been quite a while!

Well, now that winter break is coming up, there are fewer excuses to procrastinate! Hurry up so I can "test" it! stongue.gif swink.gif

The concensus seemed to me to be "let's let Jingy do everything, because we don't care." I made some suggestions, towards making it easier for people to get involved, and they were ignored. So, yeah. People agreeing with you because they are agreeing with you, does not give you consensus. As far as I'm concerned, it means that they don't have an opinion.

ah, I don't see it happening.

I say, we make a pen and paper one, then I'll do the graphics and gameplay for it, for you guys, because I can work projects on my own, without help, once the numbers are made for me. I don't like designing game engines involving ballancing, because I'm not good at it.

yeah, spelling ain't my forte'. But, they made spell check to solve that. They havn't invented anything yet that can fix your face.
