[TBP] Brief Overview of Story and Other Plans
« on: December 28, 2010, 03:51:25 pm »
Ok, so since I haven't really posted a writeup on what the story behind "The Blue Platform" is all about I'll make one now :)
Spoiler For "Writeup":
The world of the Blue Platform is split up into platforms rising up out of the darkness that is the ground, where no light penetrates. There are 9 platforms. Each is a different colour, and there are nine in all. In ascending order of importance they are: Black, White, Grey, Brown, Green, Yellow, Purple, Red and Blue. Each Platform is ruled over by a mage who is named after their platforms colour (ie: Black Mage, White Mage, etc). Each mage has different magic, based on their colour. The mages protect against the dark of the surface world using their magic to hold it off, but on day, the blue mage, the most powerful mage fails and the darkness infects his platform. This darkness infects all and changes them into monsters of the dark. One by one the platforms fall until it begins to encroach on the smallest platform, the weakest, the Black platform. Your task as the Black Mage is to protect your platform, but since you don't have the strength anymore you must journey to the next platform, the White platform and ask the White Mage for help. You do not know yet that the other platforms have fallen, but they have. Each time you, a living mage steps on a platform you gain the magic of the fallen mage. You must defeat the darkness and free all the platforms by defeating all their former protectors, and maybe even the ruler of the darkness himself.
So right now my plans for the game-play are as follows:
Quote
  • 10 worlds
  • Platformer movement
  • RPG based fighting
  • Random encounters
  • Cut scenes between levels
  • Boss battles
  • Massive magic animations
  • Health/Mana is limited to 99 and you can't get a higher max but your attacks can become more effective
Any ideas, questions?

Looks great, I just think that a game based on colours would be weird for the calculator which has no colours, but still the plot is very amusing.

I also like the idea of platform engine but RPG-Style battles.

Haha, yeah it is a little ironic isn't it :P I'll symbolize the colours by the landscapes though. The Black Platform will be mainly like a cave, White will be snowy, Red will have a lot of fire, etc.

Yeah I've played around with the idea in my head for a while but I've never actually decided to implement it till now :)

Nice but I agree with scout. It might be best to symbolize each colors. For example, if you had a game with blue, red, yellow and green, you would basically have the four elements, so you could have a forest, a mountain, a volcanic cave and ice temple, for example.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yeah, that's my plan :) But for simplicity I'm keeping the names as colours. And it would ruin the name to change it :P
