Hiya Pokitto friends
Collaboration on l’Abbaye des Morts turned out to be a very productive way of working and we would like to continue using the same method to make best games possible for Pokitto. This time we want the whole community to be a part of the team. When we all focus on a game at a time (instead of 10 people making 10 unfinished games) we can make stuff that is fun for everyone and actually gets released.
What we’re going to do:
first, give some ideas on what games you’d like to see on Pokitto. Try to think of games that are suitable for Pokitto (fit on 220x176 screen, can be played with gamepad)
Next week we will make a poll of the suggestions and consider what can be done
we will create the game in open but organized way and try to document and show how the game gets done so that as many people as possible can learn of the process, even if they are not able to contribute any code or graphics yet. In the Abbaye des Morts case having a couple of testers would have been useful
Your suggestion can be a game that already exits but is unfinished or a completely new idea.
Keep your suggestions as clear as possible. If this thread becomes too much a discussion thread, unnecessary chit chat will be deleted.
Game suggestions. Time 4-5 days.
