As promised yesterday, here’s some info on my third RPG Maker game I’m working on: Soccrpg! Soccrpg started when I went for lunch with a couple of friends. One of them complained that there was no soccer game made like an old-school RPG. I have no idea what is out there (the other friend started listing games that combine RPGs with sports), but I started thinking to myself that I could make one. And so Soccrpg was born.
This is literally what I have made so far:
It’s a soccer field with the positions in place. The opposing team chases you when you have the ball and you’re in their zones on the field; your team just stands around and will talk to you if you interact with them.
In some ways, this was a stupid project to start. I don’t really know much about soccer, so I’ve had to research like everything. So bear that in mind when I eventually finish it (my friend really wants me to make it playable for others) – I will probably get things wrong!
So with that caveat, Soccrpg has also been a great learning experience because this is my first time heavily changing things in the database. Because this isn’t remotely a traditional fantasy RPG, I’ve had to redefine terms and rename things. For example, I decided that the only weapon will be “cleats;” currently the database lists all the default weaponry as a type of cleat.
