Hey everyone! Today I wanted to start off my game develops talking about some of my inspirations for wanting to become a game dev. So let's just jump in this time!
Sonic The Hedgehog Series(1991-present, various consoles)
The blue blur has entertained me on TV since the mid-2000s, as well as plenty of fan games. However, I played Sonic Colors and loved it . Sonic has been a huge part of my life growing up, and I love the games for the speed in his spin dash/boost, and his always cool attitude. Want to start somewhere? Play the advance games or Colours and Generations. I love them, some of my favourite games to date. Also buy Forces and Mania.
Kingdom Hearts (2002-present, various)
The series that single-handily got me into anime. Year 10 and onwards was when I have made me love this series for gameplay, story and characters. Chain of Memories was my first game, and honestly, I love it. In fact, I love all of the of the ones I have played, which is One, Two, GBA Chain Of Memories and Birth By Sleep. However, I know the stories of all of them, and it not as confusing as everyone says it is. If you want to try it, play I.5+II.5 and II.8 on the PS4 preparation for Kingdom Hearts 3 in 2018. Also Nomura's art is amazing.
Megaman Zero(2002, GBA)
Capcom, bring him back! I love this game, and I will play the other 3 games(after I finish X6...UGH) but I do think you should get this. I love the weapon system, and the mission system is nice. and the story is heartwarming. I love the action style of the game.
Before my last Feature, Let me say this: In terms of US games, I begin and end with the indie movement. Japanese games are more of my preference. With that, the last game:
Glass Wing Retold(Open Beta, PC)
Addictive is the only word I have to describe this game. From Soy Sauce(or Sayuri-Sensei) has made a game that is more relaxing, but hard, I don't know how to describe it. Play it, if you have not already. And on the off chance this gets to Sayuri-Sensei, Hi! I think you are awesome!
That is it for now! I will try and make these as much as I can, but school has started and running this and YouTube devlogs will be hard!
Thank you for reading, have a fantastic night, and take care.
