Hey guys. I can finally tell you all what I’ve been working on for the past few months. Here’s a peak at our new game: Infinifactory
So, since I last posted, my account was apparently set to follow 29 new blogs. I only recognized two of them. Tumblr asked me to reset my password and I did not refuse.
Also, I moved! I live in Washington now, and I make video games for a living. I am employed and making about the bare minimum that you can make as a programmer. But it’s worth it because I get to be independent, spend time with a bunch of awesome new people, and I get to be part of a project that I’m not allowed to talk about yet. Let me just say, if you enjoyed Spacechem, you’re gonna love this. Especially because I’m working for Zachtronics Industries.
The further back I go, the more liberties I can take with the story, but it also creates more work for me (More years to fill in) and could potentially alienate the players from the world. Ideally I want the timeline to diverge when super-humans first start manifesting powers, and have the changes result from those people using those powers.
So, I’ve been working on this tabletop RPG for a while, meant to be superhero themed, designed to that it’s really easy to come up with your own powers and stuff. It’s gonna use a d6 system and hopefully be fun and stuff.
So, what I want to do is start working on the world. I want to do something other than ‘now, also, New York’. I’m imagining something like an alternate timeline where the US loses some major war (Maybe not World War II since that’s something of a cliche.) due to the intervention of some supervillains. And then the remnants of the US could form some sort of artificial island from which they attempt to still maintain some semblance of order.
Now, what I want to do is populate my world with a bunch of neat characters. Superheroes, anti-heroes, anti-villains, anti-pasta. If you, the good people of Tumblr so desired, I would be honored if you would come up with a super-character of your own design and sent it to me. Be as detailed or as vague as you want. I’ll stat up all the designs I receive and publish them here. You can send a concept through an ask, or through a reblog or post comment. I usually don’t expect any sort of response on my posts, but it would be cool to see what you guys come up with.
EDIT: Oh, also, just to be clear, they don’t need to have powers to be ‘valid’ characters. People that use power suits, or gadgets, or are just plain super-skilled are all fair game. Even henchmen if you want to come up with some fake organizations.
I’ve been off of Tumblr for like two weeks and the longer I stay away, the harder it is to bring myself to get back on it.
The potions are all supposed to work but that word has really lost all significance at this point.
