    Heya guys!

    We have a dedicated Animation Team, Sprite Team, Comic Team, Map Team, Art Team, and those are all pretty good!

    I'd love for Maplemation to also implement a Game Team!
    I heard we had a code team that died of pretty quickly, but we can broaden the sense of that Team into "THE GAME TEAM".

    Why I'd like a game team:
    Games as a medium can be pretty interactive and fun, and not all that can be expressed in Animation can be experienced the same way as Games can make us feel. Given the fact that Maplesprites already have a nature of being used inside Games, they are not hard to implement into a game at all, and it becomes easy to make a game that is a part of Maplemation, just the same as an Animation would be part of Maplemation.

    Games have become increasingly easier to develop on a hobby Level (eg. RPG Maker, Game Maker, Unity) and with enough people, we can try to help each other out the same way as the Animators help out in the community.

    ...Well, if enough people actually have an interest in it :D


    Having a game team also enables us to do interesting collabs, not only between members who actually want to develop games, but also with Art/Sprite/Animation-Members of Maplestory, to make assets for given games.

    Just the same way as Animators can animate with many different engines, so can we!
    Also, who doesn't like to play some good games with their OCs in it?

    As an example of one Maplemation project I've been working on for my lovely Faction Members:

    (That whole thing was just made in RPG Maker, so imagine what you can do with other engines. :D)

    Well uh yeah, that's my request.
    Would be cool to see if people are willing to have such a team, and to implement it!

    As someone who only makes games as a hobby I approve this idea o/
    I always had interest in making a collab with animators and what not. I've been working solo for my projects it takes a while to do everything by yourself from animations, sprites, coding, story, database info, etc.

    These are the stuff I've worked on.

    Fighting game:

    I always wanted to have an animator to animate the fighting game since I only use the basics.

    Rpg:

    This one took a very long time to make, somehow managed to finish it with the support from the players.

    I believe this thread belongs here :D

    This is a great idea! I can imagine taking projects/games taking a long time to make, but we got some budding game makers/developers who originated from MM. I think it'd be a great way to share some information and practice those skills.

    I'll be moving this thread over to the feedback section, like Tracey suggested.

    I'd also recommend that you edit this thread to include a poll, so that you have some idea of how many people agree with this idea, or how many people would be interested in joining such a team.

    Yes.

    Seriously you made the best point. Cross collabs between teams would be amazing.
    I've been trying to get something like this started with members of this community but I lack the time and effort to go through it.
    We have so much talent and skills collected in this community now that I firmly believe we could make amazing work if teams worked with
    each other for a greater goal.

    Here are some questions.
    Since this is called the "Game Team", would that mean anyone related to game making can join?
    Examples:
    -Asset creators [modelers, environments, ect]
    -Sound designers
    -Coders
    -Animators
    -ect
    Or are only the coders allowed to join? I am a game developer but my coding skills are beginner. While I focus heavily on designing the game it self
    from character creations, Animations, UI, UX, ect. I still use engines like unity to help my game creation process i'm not a coder, would that mean
    I wouldn't be able to join?

    If the idea is to pick up the full pipeline of game development to create the Game team, would you allow specialized skills [ex: only coders or only spriters or only animators]
    to join, or would the need to be knowledgeable in multiple areas of game creations in order to join?


    Last question.
    Can we get Ivan back as leader of the Game team? :}
