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.

 

 

-Objective-

 

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)

I might be able to put together a little kit for you to use. It may be a while until I finish though.

It sounds like a really cool project. I've seen a few reimaginings of MNOLG, but I don't think I've seen an isometric version. I can't wait to see the mini games!

Oh, and also, what size do you want the sprites?

I'd imagine somewhere around 48x48 since the drop shadow that I have right now is 48 pixels wide. I obviously need sprites for all 8 directions for standing and walking. A mini-game I really want to reimagine is the one that takes place in Le-Koro as I have a pretty good way on how to make it. I'm probably gonna make each area in the order of the story progression most likely.

Why couldn't/wouldn't you use the existing MNOLG music?

I'll be using MNOG's music as placeholders as I do want to have the soundtrack remixed for my project as well as having some original compositions here and there. So in a sense, I'll technically be using the soundtrack.

Looks promising! [:D] I tried making one of these before, but I kinda... Uhh, just gave up [:P]\I guess I'm better at 3D stuff than drawing [:P]
