Title: looking for ideas of a video game to convey naturist values
Post by: nitram on August 28, 2014, 05:04:03 pm

I have the video game developer.
[/size]I have funding possibilities.
[/size]But I'm absolutely not in the video games stuff. I have no interest on it. But I think video games could be useful to promote naturist values towards the youngsters.
[/size]
[/size]So, I ask to those among you who love video games.
[/size]
[/size]If you'd be in a project to create a video game to promote naturist values,
[/size]how would it look like?
[/size]
[/size]Which type of game? Which demographics? Which features? Etc.

I always dream of some simple adventure game with great plot like Pokemon or Fire Emblem, but with the characters are optionally clothed. But no sex scene please.

I think this would be a really good idea! maybe something like kingdom hearts or mario but with naked characters?

I would be very interested in such a project, as we all know there isn't much entertainment media out there featuring naturism. I'd make it so that it wasn't about naturism per se, but rather some sort of alternate world where people don't wear clothes. You'd just have to be very careful that it wasn't in the least bit sexual or else people would completely miss the point.

Video games are very much a medium that nudism hasn't shown up very much in.  More so than movies or TV.  I love those screenshots, by the way!

Just as long as we don't have a repeat version of Sims or something like that. Games gotta have a point behind it other then just being naked. I think that is where the problem lies in.

It wouldn't be too entirely hard to mod some existing games (mainly pc games, or emulated games) if you know someone thats good with textures. Plus theres plenty of existing mods that add nudity to games. Most of them are sexualized though.

I've actually worked on a couple of projects trying to do this very thing. I had lots of issues getting all of the links I wanted to appear to work so I made my own thread about the game Project Skyglass (as I was recommended to do anyway).

Ar Ru Persona Purge Flipsphere Gameplay Ar Tonelico Qoga Knell of Ar Ciel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmyBNMabr84#ws)

this game for ps3.

this powerful character connects with mother earth.. and as she became closer to it, she has to remove clothing. less clothes more damage!

Interesting concept, but it seems to me more like an excuse for fan-service rather than making a meaningful or normalizing use of nudity :\ It's when her face gets red and teary-eyed with her hands close to her body that makes it look like she's being exploited and "groped" by the camera that makes me uncomfortable.

I had a pitch for a game if you were still interested. The idea is a little Lovecraftian Mountains of Madness RPG game. In essence, in a style reminiscent of Diablo 1, players would brave the depths of an arctic/antarctic base. The idea is that the tribe controlling the base is of a type very comfortable with nudity indoors. The overall game play would feel very horror based but still adventuring capable.

I'm 1.5 years late to the thread but I would totally play this game (and I don't play a ton of videogames). Earthbound is a great game and one of my all-time favorites. Are you still working on this by chance? And if you don't mind me asking, what software are you using to make it?

@Maverick I still have a lot of the assets but I lost a lot of it when switching computers. (The files got corrupted somehow) I haven't worked on it in a while because I didn't get a lot of feedback. Not to mention I've been working way too much.

Maybe some kind of jedi like character who looses the force while clothed, or area status effects based on lack of clothing.  Maybe a skill that once learned makes you more powerful, but requires you to be nude.  It be a challenge to incorporate the nudism without it being gimmicky.  It would be sweet though, I'd buy it for sure.

I've thought that something like swimming in a game would be better accomplished if your character stripped down and left items behind, or for every piece of clothing and gear the character's ability to move through the water slows down.

I've thought that something like swimming in a game would be better accomplished if your character stripped down and left items behind, or for every piece of clothing and gear the character's ability to move through the water slows down.

Wouldn't it be more about the depiction of the main protagonist - a strong appealing person, a role-model, who doesn't give the time of day to think of such a trivial thing as clothing. Then it would be a matter of climate, environment, that can physically justify the nude form. Beyond that giving clothing or the lack of clothing a minor to no role.

Then creating an in-game culture that lacks any inter-personal ques that define nudity to be against the public norm. Have a nude person and a clothed person having a normal talk without the 'you are naked, why are you naked, you should put some clothes on'- dialog. One in-game culture could be a prehistoric tribal one, where you can create characters with more colourful appearance in the way of hairstyles, body paints and adornments and work from there, creating factions and relationships between people and groups. Far Cry Primal had a good game-world that could have worked this way too.

One idea; if I would create a game where protagonist would have an interest, a need, to get naked. Player starting in a jail cell covered in a rigid suit (straight jacket) or something that would otherwise have inhibitory function ( @Longingtobenude thanks for the idea) and then you would need to start moving around in the prison complex and find ways to break pieces of the suit off his person, to be more agile, more unencumbered and work through environmental hazards like a sunken ruins of a medical ward ( @Maverick thanks for the idea) or swim away from a prison island. It could be a grim possible cyberpunk future. Or then the protagonist could be the sole prisoner in a rundown prison island and he needs to work out how he got there while getting clues that there is someone else in the prison noticing his absence and then starting a hunting game.

Just a quick idea.

Reminds me of the Naked Gun mod for Fallout 3:
http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/13810/?
You need a Nexus Mods account to view it. Basically, you get perks that give you added speed, stealth and dodging capabilities when not wearing clothes, to make nudity a more viable character choice.

At least the "doesn't give the time of the day" - part.  :smiley: But with more human emotions, so to speak. Giving a bigger selection of characters that can be related with, with different personalities - yet accepting the nude way of living.

Sorta reminds me of Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2 after he's captured and loses all his clothes and gear.

I did that a year ago. No nibbles. But my specific post was regarding people who were familiar with scripting or sprites since I have no knowledge of coding and my pixel art is... so so. Ideas are a dime a dozen but people who can actually help with a game is a whole other matter.

I taught myself the art and coding stuff but I'm not amazing at it. And it's just a lot of work for one person.

I think to kick such a project off, it would be most helpful to be as open as possible to the different possibilities. Hiring a freelancer shouldn't have to much of a negative effect, especially if our intentions are made clear from the onset.

Or and RPG in a forest where nudity is the "norm".

So... in the comment section of this post (https://internationalyn.org/forum/index.php/topic,29420.0.html ), by @jermazing, talking about my game Swords and Claws (https://colonellazuli.itch.io/swords-and-claws ), @Cle Leftwrite mentioned that talked to me and I had some other game ideas.

After I created an account here, @Northman asked me to talk about some of them… and so here I am!

But before talking about my other game Ideas, I will explain a bit about what I had in mind when I decided to create Swords and Claws.

Well… In the beginning… I just wanted to play an online nudist/naturist game… ^^; … but I’ve found none, so I decided to create one!
And by a nudist/naturist game, I mean, literally any kind of game depicting nudity as something normal. A game that had the characters nude, but that was not the focus of the game… Instead of it, the game would have its own story, characters and everything normally, and the nudity wouldn’t be more than a single detail.
As I often says, I truly believe that one of the best ways to fight the taboo against nudity, is probably through art and media content depicting nudity as something normal. Stories, movies, comics and games that are interesting by themselves, and nudity is… well… just there.
These kind of things would really help people to stop seeing so many problems with nudity  and having a more natural approach on it just as we do…

So, for this game, I wasn’t being very ambitious. I just wanted to create one single game. Simple, playable on browser and fast to complete, and for that I decided to create a 2D platform adventure!

Now, about why I decided to use anthro characters… Animals, instead of humans.
Basically, due to 3 reasons:

1-   Animals are cute! And they are perfect for games, even for the most generic ones! They make the game more cute and appealing, and they are also good for stablishing characters, once we can use their species as a hint of the character’s characteristics.

2-   Animals are, once again, cute! Due to that, even people who aren’t used to nudity, still tends to be more tolerating towards the nudity of anthro characters.

3-   I wanted the nudity to feel as natural as possible in the game. Something I wouldn’t even have to bother explaining. Animals are naturally nude. In our world they are nude all the time, so people would accept the idea of the characters being nude more easily.

Due to some comments I received… I do believe this idea kind of worked! XD

So yeah… It was supposed to be a one-time thing, but in the end, the game was so well accepted, that I decided to make more!
 
So for SOME of my games and other future projects, I intend to expand the Swords and Claws universe. But of course, I will not limit myself to only that.

(Be aware… these are just some ideas I had. I won’t grant that I will actually manage to do any of these games… I will try… some… if any of you like one of the ideas, and want to make it, please, do contact me! :))

For the games set in the Swords and Claws universe, I have 3 ideas:

1 – In this “universe” I am creating, there is, in the village of the main protagonist (Nicholas, the cat), this tavern-like restaurant, managed by a raccoon woman, where they go to relax, eat some stuff and just have some good times.
So this first game would be nothing but a restaurant managing game. One of those in which the player have to conduct the customers to their tables, take and serve their order, get money and upgrade the place, as the level goes.

2 – This game would be the “bridge” between the first game and the official sequel. It would be a 2D platformer, just like the original game, but focusing mainly in puzzles and platform challenges, instead of combat.
In this game, we would control an archer fox woman, as she enters an ancient temple to achieve an magical artifact.
This artifact would be a key element on the next game, but I can’t say much more because spoilers! XD

3 – Swords and Claws 2 – Forsaken Kingdom: This would be a 3D platform adventure. The puzzles would evolve, still recurring to the idea of each character being able to perform different actions and interact with different elements of the world. The platform challenge would evolve, with some characters being able to perform some parkour moves, The combat would follow a hack’n slash style, with the characters being able to perform attacks, combos, defense, parry and dodges.
In this game, the main characters of the original game would team up with the fox from the game I just mentioned, to investigate this Legendary Kingdom that, after spending years forgotten, and buried in the desert, mysteriously reappeared.


Now for my games that have nothing to do with Swords and Claws.

1 – This game would be an online third person shooter. But instead of having soldiers using real guns in battlefields, we would have naturists using water guns in vacations environments!
There would be several classic game modes, like team “death” match (the team which defeats more people from the other team would win), capture the flag, everyone against everyone and stuff like that.
For the scenarios, places like nudist resorts, clubs, tropical beaches, waterparks, camps and several others!
The player would be able to customize its own character, but only the weapon of choice would decide the skills (health, speed, jump height…).
The scenarios would be full of traps, like automatic garden sprinklers, pools and water cannons. But there would also be collectibles (water bottles restore the ammo, water balloons would be like grenades, soap bubbles tubes would be like smoke grenades (would create a curtain of bubbles, covering the view), towels would be like the health kit (the player would be able to dry themselves, restoring their “health”) and several others)!

2 – So… has anyone ever played Wii Sports Resort?
I have never been a big fan of sport games… But Wii Sports Resort was different. I am not sure what caused this feeling, but it was always so fun and relaxing to play this game! We always had this “vacation” sensation when playing it! And it was even more fun playing with friends!
Now imagine, how would it be a game just like that, but in a naturist island resort? XD
The player, once again, would be able to create its own character, but it wouldn’t change nothing in the gameplay.
There would be several sports, which would be simple, quick to understand and to play. Easy and practical fun!
Obviously, these sports could be different from the sports from the Wii game. There could be a wide range of options, including things like cavern exploration (finding objects), climbing and even giant foam q-tip battles! XD (I guess I could even add a more simple version of the water guns game as one of the sports)
There would also be an open world!
The player would be able to walk around the resort, exploring it freely. It would also be possible to take vehicles and swim (even underwater, allowing the player to reach secret locations, for example). While on foot, the player would be able to perform parkour moves, but it would also be possible to perform trick while using bicycles, skates or rollerblades.
In the open world, the player would also have side missions and challenges (Such as using parkour moves, or other of these mentioned “sport vehicles” to collect all of the stars in an area, reach a minimum amount of trick points or perform a route within a time limit). The player would also have to seek for hidden tokens hidden around the map, or reach certain locations.
By finding these tokens or locations, the player would unlock new sports or scenarios to do them. Exploring, finding collectable items and ranking up on the sports would unlock new game mods, new equipment appearance (example, new colors or model for the bicycle, or for the tennis racket), accessories, or even new furniture.
The furniture is because it would be cool if the player could have, create and customize its own house in the island!
And of course, all of that with the multiplayer option!

3 – “In the Lands of [AwesomeMagicKingdomName], there is a tree! Not a normal tree, but The Tree of Life. The tree is colossal, and emanates an unmeasurable amount of magical energy. Legends tells, that the spirit of Nature itself lies within its branches, what makes the tree responsible for all of the life in the world!
Due to that, the three is the most sacred thing in this world.
 A gigantic fortress was built around the tree to protect it, and leaders of all nations would cooperate to keep the tree safe.
Even when the world is at war, the surroundings of the tree are forbidden for any acts of violence or destruction, and therefore, the fortress was commonly used for diplomatic negotiations.
However, one day, a brave hero, with its magical weapons and armor, was fighting a powerful monster of the shadows.
After defeating it, the darkness spirit managed to escape from the body, and fly away to the tree, taking over it.
The sacred lands were now a place of chaos and destruction.
The evil spirit used the immense power of the tree to create traps around the fortress, and an army of monsters.
All the humans within the area were destroyed, with only a few managing to escape.
As a final act, knowing that the humans are weak, and strongly rely on their equipment to win battles, the dark spirit managed to use the nature magic of the tree to create a shield around the fortress, which would prevent any kind of inorganic material to get inside.
As an act of despair, the Spirit of Nature used the remaining of its magic and energy to take the form of a small fairy, and go seeking for help, and that is when it finds our hero!”

In this game, the player wouldn’t be able to create the character, but would be able to pick between a male or female.
Due to the shield created around the fortress, our hero didn’t managed to get its equipment inside, and have to go nude to face the spirit of darkness and recover the Tree of Life. However, the hero is not completely unarmed.
The Mother  Nature (in the form of a fairy), gives to the main character powers of nature!
The player can summon and throw leaf swords and weapons and attack with tentacle-like roots as the main attacks. But the hero also have special magic attacks (consumes mana), using different nature elements, such as fire, wind, ice, lightning and others.
The game will be a 3D platform hack’n slash game, strongly inspired in the God of War series combat system.
It will be entirely set in the fortress.
As the game evolves, the player will make several upgrades in its character and unlock new attacks and powers.
Exploring the fortress, the player would find experience and collectibles to power up the health, stamina and mana.
There would also be several shortcuts to be opened, so the traversal around the fortress will be faster.
The scenarios would be inspired in the scenarios of Prince of Persia – Forgotten Sands (Wii version). Like… a fortress in complete ruins, but overtaken by nature, and full of plants and green.
The monsters would also be cool! They would all be a mix, between animals, plants and rocks! (Remember, even though a dark spirit possessed the three, it is still using the nature magic, which was in it.)


So… these are some of my ideas…
Did you like it? XD
If any of you have suggestions, please do tell. And also tell me which of these games you would like the most to become reality! As I probably won’t have time to make all of them, having this kind of feedback would help me to decide which to create!  \(^-^)/

There is a lot that to which I would love to ask about, but I should start small, the idea on the B-block, nro. 3 - the Corrupted Sacred Tree one ...

-with the barrier that would prevent the heroes from bringing their own equipment with them, could they also be able to find those inside the barrier, like a dramatic scene where the hero finds the remains of a lone knight or something similar. It would be an interesting contrast with a naked hero against the remains of dead knights in their dented and rusted out armors.

-then it is the barrier itself. The concept is interesting, but rather specific. Hero has to take on the quest naked, which is the condition of entering. How do you manage the "forced nudity" - aspect of it with the hero's personal character development? Is nudity just a phase and he will go back to wearing clothes after the adventure is over?

And, I want to say that I like these ideas of yours.

@Northman

Thanks! I am glad you liked the ideas!
I really hope one day I will be able to create these games!
Right now, I am still a beginner, yet, today I definitely can make game way better than I could before when I made Swords and Claws, so I guess I could do something really cool if I manage to get the time to do so!

About the barrier... actually I wasn't thinking about it as "being naked is the condition to entering"... The idea I had in mind is that, once the Dark Spirit is using the magic from the Three of Life, that was the only kind of barrier it managed to create. A barrier against anything that is not part of it, against what does not have life. That is why it could only organic material could go through.
Once the evil spirit, when it had a monster body, was so used to fighting heroes and soldiers full of equipments, it didn't even considered that one would dare to leave it behind to try to fight it, and even if anyone does, the spirit didn't see it as a potential threat.

And yeah! Scenes like that, in which the hero end up seeing that all of human's technology and creations will never be match to the power of nature could be interesting!

 ...Hhmmm...
I actually didn't think that far. If the hero will get back to wearing clothes or not...
Still, one thing I had in mind, is that the hero's perception on nature, including its acceptance of its own nude body would change a lot as the hero progresses in the quest, and talk to "Mother Nature" (in the form of the fairy)

I was even thinking about including a scene, when the hero gets to the barrier, it thinks it is impossible to get in, utill the fairy reveals that the barrier could only prevent unorganic matter to go inside, and that the hero would have to take off the equipments to get in.
The hero would say it is madness (at this point, the hero has all of its confidence only in its own magical equipment, and believes that it would be impossible to do much without it). But the fairy would then reveal that it can borrow some of its power.

Yet, the hero would be hesitating to take of its clothes in front of the Fairy... Would be embarassed. And that is when the Nature Spirit would say something like:
"Seriously? I am LITERALLY nature! Are you afraid of having your body seen by me? Why? I made you humans like that!
Besides! Iam seriously offended that you humans see your own natural form as something to be ashamed of!"
XD

Hhmmm... thinking about it... I guess so. In the end, the hero could keep the nature powers, and decide to still being the protector of the Tree, having not but nature istelf as its ally! It could be cool! XD

Post by: Northman on June 18, 2020, 05:58:38 am
I can see what you mean about the barrier. It just felt at first glance an 'obvious design flaw' so to speak, from the Dark Spirit ... which it evidently has to compensate by sending in the troops.
It just felt, from a story telling perspective, that it wasn't an 'insurmountable obstacle', which requires 'unconventional methods' and an 'unlikelies hero'. It requires the two latter ones, but I am still a bit at odds with the first. A stronger barrier with a more encompassing rule "None may enter, who hasn't been touched with (Corrupted/Uncorrupted)Nature's embrace" or something like that... something that makes the hero, with the help of Mother Nature, a one-of-a-kind - individual on whose shoulders the weight of the world rests and entering through the barrier with the Mother Nature spirit is a one way thing.

There is also the hero's stance on his state of nudity. He could be from a textile culture, or he could be of a small tribe that worships the nature spirit who don't wear clothes. You would have the options of personal growth and change of heart with Mother Nature contesting the views of the hero from the textile culture, or have the naked tribesman's perspective on everything man made and decaying he finds inside the Fortress and converses with Mother Nature. The point I was thinking at that time was, is the 'personal growth and acceptance of nudity' better than 'nudity is normal from the get-go' for the main character?

Nudity could also be an unsuspected effect of the hero entering the barrier, being helped by the weakened Mother Nature. All that wasn't part of the hero, and under the embrace of the Spirit, decays to dust when passing through the barrier. And then ... something something something...

Sorry, if I am going into the minute stuff. I enjoy studying details, and I like the premise you have created.

@Northman

No worries! Indeed receiving these kinds of ideas is pretty helpfull!
And I actually liked a lot the idea of the hero needing to use the power of nature to get inside, but the armor and equipments being destroyed!

The dialogue in this scene could even change, with the hero not only being embarassed, but becoming completely desperate that the equipments were destroyed. The horo would be not only upset, because it liked a lot the equipment and had it for a lond time, but it would imediately lose all it's hope, believing that, whitout the equipments, he/she is no one... is meaningless...

Here there could be a discussion with Nature, who would explain to the hero that he/she should believe more in itself, instead of thinking to be defined only by it's clothes and equipments.

...

About baing able to choose a bharacter from a nudist culture from the beginning... I am not sure. I think it would end up ignoring a lot of interesting discussions and dialogues from the game. Besides, while giving to the player the option to choose between a male or a female protagonist would only require for me to create another 3D model, using a character from a completely different culture, with different beliefs would also require for me to recreate all of the dialogues and interactions from the entire game.

I guess what would be real interesting is a mod for The Sims which promotes nudity. Of course, as it stands, The Sims has no sex scenes so it seems like a good foundation to build upon or use as inspiration to build your own title from.

@Conjuam

Actually, there are already nude mods for pretty much all of the The Sims games. I personally play it with nude mods.

And indeed, there are a lot of games with really good nude mods. However, mods are... well... mods... It is something that we choose to add to the game.
It can be fun if we are just looking to have some casual nudity in our games, but even so, it feels, somehow, not enough...

I mean, modifying our game to have these elements is still not the same as having a game that was actually designed to have it.

Once again, nude mods are cool. But I don't think they can do a good job in promoting casual nudity as much as a game that has it as an official element, specially when it comes to reaching new people that aren't familiar with nudism.

But indeed, if they could make something inspired in The Sims, I guess it would be cool! :D

@Northman

Oh, ok... Sorry for the missunderstanding. ^^;

I was acutally thinking about a character from a culture that has nudity as a tabboo. Pretty much the "world default" currently.

Someone who is already from a nudist culture would just get through the barrier, nothing much special would happen, and then the character would follow the adventure without making a single comment on it.

As someone who sees nudity as a tabboo, we would be able to see this personal growth from the character, and also would have the opportunity to make deeper discussions on it, explaining the value and importance of the Nature and of respecting it; talking about  how the tabboos around nudity makes no sence and we should not be ashamed of our bodies; and how we are more than what we wear.

What kind of setting or general appearance of the game world have you been thinking? And the culture(s) in surrounding the Tree Fortress?
A medieval fantasy, or something more modern and contemporary perhaps contrasting with what the hero might experience inside the Fortress?
Title: Re: looking for ideas of a video game to convey naturist values
Post by: ColonelLazuli on June 19, 2020, 06:49:19 pm
@Northman

I was actually thinking about a Medieval Fantasy. I didn't think too much about the culture, because I usually don't think too much about details that are not relevant to the plot. Once everything will be already destroyed when the hero arrives, there isn't much reason to give that level of depth to the plot. So it can be something pretty basic and generic, and for what I create, I will focus more on how the magic and the creatures on that world are and how they work.

As for the scenarios, as I've said, will be very similar to what we have in the Wii Version of Prince of Persia - Forgotten Sands ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s63FmWFSFF0 ). Like, an amazing kingdon, but in complete ruins, and overtaken by the nature.
In fact, many elements of this game idea is inspired on this specific Prince of Persia game, including the fairy partner and the plant-like monsters.
Title: Re: looking for ideas of a video game to convey naturist values
Post by: Northman on June 20, 2020, 12:42:41 pm
Medieval fantasy is a good setting. But you have to admit, that consistensy in the visual appearance gives something for the player to follow and get excited about. Like piecing a puzzle, when you can recognize which pieces go together and are part of the bigger picture.

The environment inside the fortress can be strongly different, or can have different appearances the closer the hero gets to the source, the Corrupted Spirit Tree. There can be darker tones in the background, misshapen objects, distorted trees, or objects downright going against the laws of physics.
Will there be distinct and unique locations or environments inside the fortress? Since you said that the place is already destroyed, then just going from one gate to the other doesn't apply, right?
Title: Re: looking for ideas of a video game to convey naturist values
Post by: ColonelLazuli on June 21, 2020, 03:13:21 am
@Northman

Yeah, indeed.

I will try to create some cool visual identity to the game.

But I am not sure how I would be able to describe it here.
Even if I could, the truth is... actually that is the kind of detail I usually start thinking when I am actually doing the game.
Since I don’t have somewhere to keep everything written, and once my ideas cam change a lot as the time passes, I see no point in thinking about too much detail before the creation process starts.

And while I try to think in something more manageable for my Swords and Claws games, these 3 others are just ideas I have for future projects.
I still have no time, or maybe not even the skills, to create the game in the way I intend them to be.

So even if I do these game, it may take a few years before I even start.

That is why I still only have a basic general idea of the game.

But one thing I can say is that, considering my limited amount of time (or not, I don’t know how my life will be then...) and that I will be probably creating the game by my own, it is unlikely that the scenarios be much different from each other.

I mean... I guess I can do some cool things and create some variations, but...

In the end, the amount of assets used will be reasonably limited, once they take some time to be created...

...

unless...

...

Unless I do the game as a 2D platformer!

I mean... I already have a lot of experience with 2D art, and considering the game is set inside of a castle, it would still be possible to create a large map, full of different paths without requiring it to be 3D!

The game would pretty much be a naturist Metroidvania! XD

I would even be able to take some scripts from the first Swords and Claws game and use it as basis, only making improvements  to make it better! Like, add the combo system, more puzzle mechanics, better enemy AI and all of that!

And once I am not that good with particles pr light effects in 3D games, going for 2D would allow me to create better visual effects for the nature powers, and for the scenarios in general!

What do you think?

@ColonelLazuli  You can go very far with a good 2D game. And I think that there are some who don't even want to go further than 2D.

Can you tell more about the tavern game? What things will you bring into the game, which were, or weren't, part of the first game. Were there things that you wanted to add into the first, but you would want to add into the tavern game or the general universe in question?

Well, this tavern game will be one of those classic simple, but fun and relaxing management game.
You will control this female raccoon character and try to get money to keep the tavern running.

You will have the customers, that you will have to take to theit tables, then you will have to take their orders, deliver the food...
Being fast gets you more tips and stuff like that.

Each level will have a minimun profit requirement for the player to keep going on the game, and failing will cause the game to restart (Yeah... it is not that kind of game you try to win. You just play to see how far you can go). In the end of the level, you can use the extra money to do upgrades. For example, bettering the environment to get more clients, getting more tables, so you can have more clients inside the establishment at the same time, better seats, so the customers will feel more comfortable and have more patience... that sort of stuff. XD

Also, as you progress in the game, more food options and activities will be unlocked, so the game will become harder each level.

The customers would be a mix between generic animals, and actual characters from the other games and contents related to Swords and Claws, including future ones.
As for the story... The game don't actually have one. I just wanted a fun game to focus in this particular element of the world.

Like... watching the Super Café skits from How it Should Have Ended, the Moe's Bar scenes from the Simpsons and the Nord Mead Skyrim music parody video, I decided that it would be cool the idea of having this environment where the characters could get together to eat something and have fun after their adventures! ^^

Actually, the tavern and the raccoon woman make a quick appearence in a pannel from the 4th page in the Swords and Claws comic I am currently making :D (Yep! As I've said, I want to expand this universe, so I thought it would be cool to have in each content I create these little details hinting and making references to each other), but once I decided to reduce the detailing of the images as much as possible so the comic would progress faster, it won't be possible to see that much of the tavern's environment in this pannel.

You could go a bit further with a resource management element, where you spend the money for different food stuffs, furniture, items and activities, straight from various vendor characters. You could have cutscenes or dialog options with new vendors from whom you buy your resources. There could the Baker, the Fisherman, the Brewer ... and who ever you might have in town. That could help you to build up your roster of characters beyond the Raccoon lady.
You could also have achievements with the money earned, or first special activity, or 100th bowl of curry sold, unlock extra content like new art work about life in the town or the other characters, loading screens, cutscenes, in-game random occurrance where a happy customer gives you his/her grandma's recipe you could appreciate, etc.

I would most likely have to remove this element of "if you lose, you have to start again" from the game... ^^;

But I don't know if I would be able to do something like that...
Truth be said, as a game developer, I am still a beginner.

Besides, I have pretty much no experience with management games (not creating them, nor playing them, which means I barely have any haference on how they are suposed to work at all... ^^;), so it would be difficult to add to this game so many elements and keep everything balanced.

The games I planned to create for Swords and Claws universe, until now, were planned without being much beyond of what I know for sure I can create. I try to keep them simple so I can practice my abilities as I create them.

Indeed I could try to add some of these elements to the game, and I think it would be pretty cool! But I can't assure much...  ^^;

Thanks for the compliment. If anything I have ideas, some good and bad ones pretty much in same amount.

"Dreams are a size too big, so that we can grow into them." Translation doesn't work very well, but you get the idea, but instead of "dreams", but "goals" work too. And you aren't really in a hurry to get these things done in a weekend's time. Plan ahead and map out the skills you need to get there.

I originally got the impression that you want your tavern game to be a 'feel-good' game. Something like Animal Crossing, but your own.

Well, I haven't planned much of them.

All I know is that all of them are anthropomorphic animals. All of them from mammal species.

We could say we have the characters from the first game, including the enemies (yep! after all of that mess they chilled out and are no longer enemies! XD) and the main character's family.
There are also the archer fox woman, who will appear in Swords and Claws 2. There is the blacksmith horse man that will briefly appear in my comic...

And several other random animals...

Ah, I see...

But not yet... Actually, due to the fact I have a really bad memory, and I don’t take notes anywhere, I got used to avoiding creating stuffs in that many details too much time before the moment those thing will be used.

So basically, I just have some of the main characters and some of the characters who interacted and/or will interact with them in future games.

Even so, their personality are as deep as what was necessary for them to act or say what they did...

That is why my universes basically only grows as I create stuff. I actually I constantly imagining stuff, but if I don’t use that idea anywhere, it will probably be gone within a few hours... ^^;

And that is also one of the reasons I don’t get so deep in any of the stories before I start to actually creating them.

But if you want me to think about the characters, like... now... I guess I could. ^^;

Actually I didn't plan anything for their families but, about them...

I guess I could say raccoon lady is slightly "chubby".
She is verry passionate for her work. She likes to take care of her tavern, prepare drinks and food and serve it to the customers, and she get really happy when someone likes the food from there.
She also is also pretty sweet and caring. She likes to make friends and keep good relationships with them.
With that, she tries to keep everyone always in a good mood in the tavern.
...
She is pretty much just as that lovely aunt everyone has! ^^


About the blacksmith horseman, he is tough!
He is a horse who works as a blacksmith, after all... So he is big and strong!
Just as the raccoon lady, he appreciates a lot his work, and is always pleased to know when someone managed to do something incredible with something he forged.
But he is also very nice and caring for his friends, and always likes to motivate them to be the best of themselves.

...
I guess that is all I could say for now... ^^;

How will these qualities translate into their visual apperance and mannerisms?
Will there be dialog and corresponding changes in facial expressions to go with their lines?

Post by: ColonelLazuli on July 06, 2020, 02:24:03 pm

Well, the gameplay itself will have a simple visual... Kind of a chibi style, and the characters moving around won't have much of a difference in their behaviour between each other.

But if I add dialogues in the game, or at least some "story development" between each levels, I guess I would use something similar to what I did on Swords and Claws. Therefore, I would have the texts appearing somewhere in the screen, and an expanded image of the character that is saying that (or, if is an interaction menu, while the player is talking to someone else, the image of the character the player is talking to).
The visual of the characters would be different from the chibi style, and be a bit more """realistic""".
I was really rushing against time when I made Swords and Claws, and therefore in the game the characters only change their facial expression while they talk to match their personality and what they are saying, but this game I would like to give them different postures and all, making the whole body expressive.

@ColonelLazuli

So, three-part body proportions against the "normal" 7,5-8 parts body proportions for the gameplay, but "normal" for the in-between story cutscenes and 'speech bubbles'?

Will you make the 'cutscenes' visually look like a comic book? Switching from panel to panel as the voice acting moves forward? That would give you the chance to invest on the artwork and limit the need for animation.

And no. THere want be cutscenes, comics, animations nor voice in dialogues. Just some quick dialogues in between scenes or during quick interactions.
As I said, I want this to be a pretty simple and relaxing game... like the kind of game I can play in a side tab while watching a video... I mean... something that people can play without even thinking much about it, so I don't want there to be many options that require much attention or that people think too much about... just something quick and easy to play, without many prolongued interruptions of the flow of the game.

Well... as I've said... I really want to expand this universe through more and more media content, so indeed I will have a lot of places to spend the ideas on!  :grin:

and @Dogoegma , indeed, ins some of these content theere will be several hints and links for the future and past ones! XD

The games from the Data Ariane Series kinda do that job of conveying naturist values.
Specifically the latest game: Ariane in Paradise does that well as nudity is not associated with sex for the most part but instead as an enjoyable state.
It is really one of the few games encouraging naturism out there so give it a try I suppose.

If anyone wants to take my idea for their games they are welcome too.

- A Simcity/Sky Cities where you manage a nudist camp that starts as a camp and you have to evolve it into a park. Bonus points or harder levels can be trying to turn it into a city a la Cap d'agde.
- Sims seems to be a popular and very reasonable choice. Seriously, do everyday things but naked? Why else are we here in this forum?
- Michael Phelps (or non copyright infringing Mike Philips) swims nude with other various nude swimmers. Can be made in VR/motion controls for physical moving
- Harvest Moon/Star drew Valley game where everyone is nude
- Nudist Colony of the dead. An infection has attached everyone wearing clothes thus to not get inflected you have to be naked. First Person Shooter.
- Visual Novel. I'm actually trying to do this one but first I have to learn how to program lol. Make a visual novel where either a character is introduced to nudism or has to convinced someone about it. Can be censored with strategically placed items in front of people for like Steam but uncensored patches be made for those that know where to get them.

If you are making a visual novel consider using Renpy as your game engine. Will make your game much better. And then you just need to learn Python, one of the more intuitive languages to learn and very powerful too.
Also you will need a good 3d renderer to make the rendered images for your visual novel too.

We mainly just need someone to be able to render the images. It should be of high quality.

I am unsure how to do the specific task in question, but if I had more info I can try to give it a shot.

What rendering images? Basically you set up a scene is a 3d modelling software such as 3dsMax, Blender or Daz Studio. A scene would be an assortment of different objects and characters you have posed with a background behind them. Then you render the scene into an image which applies realistic lighting to the scene and captures it. Most decent visual novels are made up with these renders although it is possible to simply just draw them if your drawing skills are good enough.

C++ is used to make a lot of video game, mainly ones that run on engines such as Cryengine, Unity, Unreal, and RAGE. Offers a more direct management of system resources I believe that other programs just cannot give.

I see. I don’t have experience doing that. My knowledge of programming come from a more mathematical perspective. I do understand the mechanics of taking a picture in some other software, turning it into a matrix (via what I assume is an api) and doing matrix manipulations on it (like altering values or solving for an eigenvalue/eigen Vector). I presume that is what you are referring to.

I don't think that would be too useful from my experience in this, but maybe you can contribute somehow. But still, without someone making the rendered images or good drawings, it won't be fun to play. Look at a game like Ariane in Paradise to see how good the renders need to be.

- Nudist Colony of the dead. An infection has attached everyone wearing clothes thus to not get inflected you have to be naked. First Person Shooter.


I actually brushed this sort of idea some time ago.  :laugh:

I imagined a stereotypical 1950's nuclear family of naturists (or nudists, I don't know which is the era appropriate term) in the midst of an alien invasion with textile monsters, or rather well into it actually. With each family member as their own kind of class: The Soldier, the Scout, the Spy, the Scientist ... etc. Each with their own backstory, talents and secrets. At first, a survival mission, and then a sudden opportunity comes up to take the fight to the enemy.

Dark 50's American B-movie fantasy adventure with flesh devouring designer clothing and iconic milieus of a town in rural America. An epic journey which starts when a military aircraft crashes next to a nudist colony.

like this idea, could be very funny or satirical if you want to add some Cold War imagery or commentary. There is the danger of putting aliens though and probe jokes

I was thinking a situation where you have the parents, one is a war vet and the other is an inactive soviet spy.  :azn:  ...the mother. Nudging things discreetly forward without others knowledge.

Well, there is always that one random encounter with a doomsday prepper person who is extra certain that aliens have come to get him in particular and he will have to work extra hard to make sure that there will not be any alien probes getting in him.

I’ll do my best, but I recommend to keep this in mind; the goal should be to try to attract funding for more resources. It is more important to get something good out then something great. Not to say that great shouldn’t happen, but the ability to show that the idea is profitable is a first priority.

I'm currently in the middle of learning the necessary skills for Game Development. I'm nowhere near where I need to be to produce a complete project, but I'm slowly and surely acquiring skills and knowledge. So far I have a pretty basic understanding of Python (and coding logic in general), and somewhat of an understanding of using the Gadot game engine for 2D games.

This has probably already been mentioned, but something like Call Of Duty where nudity is used to make you sneak around and create no noise.

-OR-

A similar idea to the one above, but in a primitive caveman setting where you use bows and arrows, etc. as weapons, and you fight over your land.

Maybe I've missed the boat, in which case, don't listen to my ramblings!  :laughing :laughing

All ramblings are wellcome.  :laugh:

I like the naked warrior concept. A camo bodypaint would work very well in a jungle environment.  :cool:

I was very pleased when Far Cry Primal was released back in the day. I wonder if it wouldn't be too difficult to create alternative skins for a nude tribe characters.
