GEARS Games Incoming!
That's right. I think it's time. Since I'm adding more to the Gameshow Planet (which is going great so far), I decided we should go ahead with the GEARS Games!
So this week, we should be releasing the first chunk of the GEARS Games which includes an intro cutscene so players can get caught up with this event. We have that intro cutscene pretty much ready to go, courtesy of Lyris. We'll be rushing to get the other cutscenes done and a bonus task at the end of the Games but it should be interesting.
I do plan on trying to make the games evenly balanced since I'm sure Wolfblade has a large number of members so I'll try and figure out the details on that which might mean the numbers may be weird at first depending on whather or not I need to wait for teh games to start first to see the differences (I'll be asking Warlic about that).
That said, I have the functionality of the Trivia game all setup. I just need questions which I'll be having Maegwyn gather plenty of. So we officially have 2 gametypes that players can choose from. I'll be working on a 3rd when I have a chance. I think I'm going to make it to where you can choose either of the 3 gametypes per level. So say you get through 3 obstacle courses and can't get past the 4th, you can try the 4th level of one of the other 2 games and still get the same story advancement. So that should be nice. In the end you'll be able to play any level of either game.
So I'll be sure to post more info on the Games whenever it comes around. For right now there is much to be done. Probably more than we should sanely attempt but since when have we ever been sane?
