    So for the last 3 months I've been quietly making a game in my spare time (not a small feet, ask William ;) )
    I've come to a point where I've realized that the only way I'm ever gonna finish it is if I have people (friends) encouraging me on.
    So I've decided to come to you, Prodigy-X; my friends for help and advice.

    It's gonna be something in the style of FF1 meets Legend of Zelda so RPG based. (No need to worry not gonna make a Rsps.)
    There is a lot of stuff I've done but I have a lot more that needs to be done.
    If anyone from the community would like to help, I'd be happy to have any input or feed back.

    Here are some screenshots and videos from the game during development.

    At the moment I still need.

    ~A title (I'm really bad at naming things, Help!) Project Unknown
    ~Character and Monster art + names (I have some but mostly its Drm free and not unique.)
    ~Area music (working on that one myself.)
    ~Proper story (I have a rough idea, though any input would be greatly appreciated.)
    ~Item names, lvls, stats and type. ( I have most but uniques would be cool.)
    ~Maps lots of freaking maps (please use this https://donjon.bin.sh/5e/dungeon/ )
    and use *Map Style: Sandstone* *Dungeon Layout: Cavernous*


    If you do make a map, art you want me to use* or other, you can pm me on Discord or post it here.

    To make these easier for people to get unique ideas, maybe post some "progress pics" or just general pics so people can get more than "i make this game its a___- and so on" :) good luck tho!

    ~I had an artist who was gonna do bust art and monster sprites, that fell threw soo. :cry:

    ~Added custom art busts (Actor Profiles) hand made by me. :D ~see video~
    I'm not the best artist out there but it's fine for the scale that it'll be at.

    ~Working on about 12 more custom actors and maybe 2-3 monsters.
    A lot of work goes into them, especially since I overthink how things look a lot.

    ~Still have some coding that needs to be worked out.. mainly loot / damage tables.

    ~World map is shaping up, I have 3 out of the 9 areas I have planed, maybe more who knows?

    ~I still need a few plugin adjustments, and some dialog reworks for later this month.

    ~I came up with a name for the game, although Idk if it will be 100% permanent. ~see main post~

    RPG Maker MV, but most of the Js and some of the other assets like art and music are my own.
    I do plan on having more then just myself working on it down the line though.

    Yeah for the most part I've gotten the sounds to stay in a general area around the object making it.
    Some of the coding is a pain though, especially combat... That is frustrating.
