Solidifying the Idea for a Computer Game

We are on a great journey. A journey of creativity, of imagination, and of self-satisfaction. This journey is the journey of designing and developing a computer game.

We now need to start putting together the content for the different levels that the player needs to go through in order for him to reclaim his kingdom.

So, I am thinking that the starting level, or level 1, will place the hero somewhere in the forest between the location where he was kept and trained in secret and one of the smaller villages in the outskirts of the Kingdom. The hero, will be on his way to enter the village when he will meet the first Guardian. The Guardian will advise the hero to perform a few tasks prior to continuing his path.

Throughout his venture in the first level, he will collect important information that he will be using later throughout the game.

So the question now is, what should some of these collectables be? How will they be realized in the game-play and how will they be interconnected to the overall gaming experience?

I believe that we need to have some sort of a map that will be used throughout the game to guide the player on his/her quest. The map will probably change over-time as more pieces are gathered throughout the game. This could be achieved in several different means: (1) the original map will only have limited information to guide the user only for that particular level and mission objectives, and as he progresses throughout the game, the map can also reveal more information and etc… (2) The original map is partitioned in several smaller maps that the player needs to find throughout his/her quest in the game. This will give yet another adventure like experience to the player, as to searching and finding the map collections throughout the game play to meet their overall mission objective.

Other items could range from hidden treasures to sacred books that provide the player with a deeper insight into his family history and the events that have occurred in the past. The treasure will of course be used for wealth and recruitment of allies and other soldiers throughout the gameplay.

Of course he will also be able to pick a few goodies and place them into his inventory for later use.

Of course, we need to also have some way of collecting new ways of defending and fighting with our player. So swords and shields are going to be a big part of the game-play. There is also going to be potions and magic. These items will be required to enhance the gameplay and also provide strategic thinking by the user on how to defeat a particular enemy.

Advancing to the next level. So now, he has more knowledge of the past, and he also has a few goodies in his inventory … ROCK ON! The journey continues. He starts going down the path to the first village.

Entering the village, no one, knows who he is, therefore, everyone is very cautious of him, and pretty much ignore him. One of the main key parts of this level would be for the hero to stumble-upon another friendly character which will give him more wisdom and guidance. This is one of the better known merchants in the village that has been around and has seen the devastation of the Kingdom due to the infamous battles and the brutal rampage by the ORCs.

The merchant turns out to be a very close friend to Maximillian’s father, King Vittorio. At first glance, he does not recognize the young Maximillian, but after a few glances and the initial exchange, he starts to recognize him, and a great joy and happiness overcomes him. At this point, the player starts interacting with the Merchant, and the Merchant is the main supporting character that is going to help Maximillian to get to the next level.

The question again here is what are these new key information points? A better version of the map perhaps? More treasure hunting? More riddles to solve in order to get to the treasure? Improved fighting gear? How about the actual weapons of a Knight? More Inventory Items?

Perhaps, a new set of map will be given to the hero, which illustrates some hidden passageway to the internal kingdom. Also, the marked-up locations of points of interest. Throughout the journey, we may come across some hostility from other character classes. This is where the hero needs to show his ability to defend and fight against his foes. The resistance could be of the Barbarian Class.

Which brings me to the next point. How many different class/character types do we have in the game? Well, the following are the class types which I have been thinking about and brainstorming about:

The Citizen Class: These are your subject in the Kingdom. They are the citizens of the Kingdom. They comprise of the peasants, the farmers, the merchants, and etc…

The Barbarian Class: These are tribes that have no rules, and understand no rules and law! They are fighting machines and the only thing they care about is, looting, lust, and more looting.

The ORC Class: The ORCs are beastly animals that have been living alongside the humans for many generations. They are a community within themselves, and their main objective is collect gold and other treasures. They will go to great wars in order to get possession of such materials and they will destroy and burn down village towns and Kingdoms to get what they want.

The Living Dead: The Living Dead, are a secret weapon of the Evil King Maarten and the Wizard Darnell. These are fallen soldiers who have been kept alive by the wizardry of Darnell. They are the second line of defense in the new Evil Kingdom, and they are very deadly if one is trapped in a group of them.

The Dead Army: Another one of Darnell’s secret weapons. These are also fallen solders that were going to be converted into the Living Dead, but the magic did not work as well, and they turned into living skeletons. Not as powerful as the Living Dead, but still deadly in a small group.

NOTE: looking forward to any comments and feedback anytime!

I would like to bring to a close this article, and I will discuss about the project in further detail in the next.

Sincerely,

Muscle Beach To Celebrate Historic 75th Anniversary

Multinational Brands, Inc., parent company of the recently launched Muscle Beach fitness club chain , will be one of many sponsors of this historic event celebrating the birthplace of fitness.
The fitness movement began in 1933 on a beach in Santa Monica, California. At this oceanfront setting, both men and women gathered to share their love of exercise. They performed various maneuvers, including gymnastics, acrobatics, ballet, pyramid building, and weight training. These activities eventually led to modern day exercise techniques and what is now known as fitness. This legendary, beachfront venue came to be known as Muscle Beach.
As the performances became more advanced, the public took notice and soon Muscle Beach was drawing thousands of earnshawsdirectory.com spectators.

An Early Look at Open-Xchange’s Upcoming Hosted Web Desktop

An Early Look at Open-Xchange’s Upcoming Hosted Web Desktop

on April 13, 2011

With the explosion of cloud technologies moving the industry forward, and with companies increasingly developing applications in the cloud, hosting providers, and the services that deal with the hosting business, are looking for new ways to use the cloud in distributing or supporting their services.
Messaging and collaboration provider Open-Xchange (www.open-xchange.com) is just one of the many companies embracing the cloud. Later this year, the company will release its much anticipated Web Desktop, a centralized interface designed to manage and use any SaaS application on any device with Internet access.
And while the concept of a virtual or hosted desktop is not a new idea, the company believes its hosted desktop product is a cut above.
A team of 12 employees at Open-Xchange have been developing the project for nearly a year and a half. Teaming up with 1&1 Internet (www.1and1.com), the company took a few months to thoroughly research the project.
“We came up with this concept of the Web desktop that has the same desktop functionality as banner stands a Windows or Mac machine inside the browser window,” says Laguna. “It really came out of talking to all our service providers. Open-Xchange usually comes in when people contemplate how they can sell more to their customer based, how they improve customer retention, and how they can win more customers. They realized upselling works well, but were having troubles with cross-selling.
At Parallels Summit 2011, CEO Rafael Laguna previewed a “pre-Beta” version of Web Desktop, showing the ins and outs of the new application in a live demo.
Taking its cue from Apple iOS, both in design interface and overall functionality, Web Desktop allows users [...] Continue Reading…
