I'd kind of like to make a farming game.  

nnodley

This is going to happen.  

Are we just gonna make a private thread here or do we want to go one step further and make a slack for everyone to post in?

I really like the farming game idea, because you can take things step by step.  Can have a lot of small victories.  

Like you can start with a home life, and you'd have a lot of little victories with:
-making a new plant
-making a new building
-making a new animal

And then if you really wanted to, you could call it done.  
Otherwise you could keep going and add stuff like:
-NPCs
--dialogue
--AI
-a town or a few
--buildings
--roads
-caves

Would anyone be interested in working together on it?

I'm down for helping with anything. You and nnodley agree on something and I'll be there to assist.

I still think a game jam sounds cool though haha.

Probably should keep it here to make it as simple as possible to stay involved.

Yep.  Totally in!!!

I like the farming idea as well.  Let's do it.  

We should start putting together some sort of game dev doc.  Like make it a google doc that everyone has access to and keep filling out.  

Will need to figure out style, camera view(figure we will go isometric?), and some sort of timeline for a "release".

What would you think of making it for VR?  

nnodley

What would you think of making it for VR? 
I mean no reason not to.  Especially with quest being so popular.  We would just have to get accepted to release on there though. But we can develop for PC based VR though.

I've been meaning to apply for quest anyway. I could send that in.

On pc, you need to support steam vr and oculus even though steam supports oculus. I did steam only for Twisty Puzzle Simulator since I wasn't supporting quest.

Also do we want to use Unity?

I'd rather not, but if majority rules unity, then i guess i can go with it.

I absolutely hate unity.  I feel like it's GARBAGE!

the-pi-guy

Nnodley likes unreal, pretty sure.
I don't have enough experience either way. 

nnodley

I can't express my hate for unity enough. lol

@Legend  Do you have a specific template you use for a game dev doc or did you just go and create your own overtime?

the-pi-guy

And here I was going to ask Nnodley.  

;D

I'm sure the ones I've tried making probably aren't good.

These were the sections in VizionEck's original GDD.

Was built for Sony only. My dev focused GDDs are all forum threads in a private area.

For a smaller game like this, we could break it down into

Standard Systems
