Pico RPG Collab

Posted by GabeMalk - March 25th, 2021

So, Pico Day is coming and I decided I wanted to make a game for it.

Some of my absolute favorite games from old school Newgrounds were RPG/simulation games like Stick RPG and Pico Sim Date, they were part of my childhood, and now I want to make something inspired by them.

I just started writing down some ideas, I'm playing old NG games to break down some of the elements and mechanics, I'm trying to come up with interesting concepts, etc, etc, my standard approach to game design and writing.

But the thing is, I probably can't put this game together by myself. Unfortunately, I have this weird disease that makes me want to bang my head against the wall every time I write more than 5 lines of code, and my art is pretty mediocre at best. I'm a great musician tho... But not for video games. So I need to find some people to help me (that's where YOU come in... Maybe...). I talked to a programmer yesterday, he said that he might join the project, but nothing is certain yet, so if you liked the idea and believe you can offer something to the project, contact me, it'll be fun to collaborate.

I know there's a "deadline", which is Pico Day, but that doesn't bother me that much, I want to make this game out of nostalgia and simply because it seems like a cool and fun game to make, it doesn't need to be 100% finished by Pico Day. Also, the project is in an "early" state (which is to say all I have is a google docs file right now) so ideas, concepts and twists are always welcomed.

Is this a news update? Yeah, I guess. Maybe I should have posted this on the Collabinator, but it sorts by follows, so I don't know if it'd reach anyone. Ah, whatever.

Oh, and by the way, HAVE YOU PLAYED THIS ADMIN GAME YET? I heard it's pretty EPIC wink wink, you're like an IT detective, I think you should go play it wink wink. There was this one guy who said the game was great but needed more IT Crowd references lol and I kind of agree, but I watched that show like 10 years ago... Anyway, news update over.

See ya, space cowboy.

Or cowgirl.

Or cowinsertwhateveryou'dlike.
