Hey all, I would like to show off a project that I recently started, as I got the idea of a reimagining of the Mata Nui Online Game after revisiting the game. What I have so far is just a "proof of concept" video with basic graphics and a playable engine that I made.
What I would like to do in this project is to present the story in an isometric gameplay style as well as implementing fun mini-games where they feel necessary. You can think of the game concept as the Bionicle GBA game (2001) and MNOG combined. I also aim to include full voice acting to add to the experience. I feel like this will be a tough challenge, but with enough motivation, I think I can make this possible.
-What To Do-
As you saw in the above video, I need character animations for the protagonist, Takua, as I'm not able to create decent pixel art of any characters in general. I'd also like an additional background artist for certain areas such as the rocky parts of the beach. As for my own pixel art in general, I'm able to do some background assets and the ground tiles. I'm also able to create art for the HUD as well as possible character portraits since cutscenes in the game will be text box based. I'd also need a music composer some time down the line if this ever becomes a serious project, but that really isn't a high priority right now. Same goes with VAs. I can still continue on, but I can't say that this will be a successful project if I'm lacking a character pixel artist.
Since this is a Not For Profit Fan Game, I won't be focusing on this as much as another game project that I'm making as well. I will still try to continue working with the skills I have. Let me know on what you guys think as I appreciate feedback! (If any applies to just a proof of concept video)
