I followed along with this for fun. Came up with a “Streetfighter/GTA meets Diablo” concept. I personally find the “fighting the army of undead” thing gets a bit old.


Here’s an image of my GDD (since I didn’t use GoogleDocs and I can’t upload a PDF).

“The Broken” is a voxel-art future-fantasy RPG that gives players one life per character. Inspired by Diablo’s Hardcore Mode; If your character dies, any progress you made is wiped clean. Inspired by games like Counter Strike, Fortnite, DOTA etc.; your PlayerLevel will determine any starting bonuses to play the game with.

Game Moment
You roam through the grasslands when you here animals scatter. You go to investigate and you find a group of enemies. Suddenly on the cliff side is a giant half earth half tree creature who is mind controlled and is wrecking havoc on the natural order of the area. You pull out your sword and face enemies and then you make your way to the boss which you engage in an epic battle of strategy, rolling slashing and fire. Always room for more fire.

Game Summary
This game came from my love for the bending system in Avatar The Last Airbender and my love for fighting different unique bosses.

I want to create a beautiful world that the player can immersive themselves in while having a variety of enemies to face. I also love the idea of the main character growing from this experience and become fit to be the next king.

You have abilities that tie in to your skill in swordmenship and your be found abiltiy to harness fire. You can increase both or become adapt in one. You choose your path. The game has a linear story but how you get there is always different for whoever is playing.

Does it need to be an RPG? I have other ideas not related to this genre at all

If you are not that experienced making games I highly suggest you follow the course and make an RPG, then with everything you’ll learn make your own thing, but if you have the skills then go ahead and make something entirely different right from the start! Nothing wrong with that.
