Since the web is full of freeware programs, we could do some old school 2-D RPG of FGBs with one of these? If I remember, RPG Maker 2000 is freeware, even if our guys would be deformed in japanese style but could be a first attempt...
You put Jake, Eddie and Grunt as main chars, along the way you can put/replace in your team Belfry, Jessica, Futura or some new character also! melee fights, special attacks, inventory, gear... we could put almost all, with all the pros and cons of the case.
Me and Nix could think to the graphics, someone else could think to the story and the plots, we have to think about it.
Let's see if this thing can go on
The past is the ghost that haunts us all. The future is the ghost that we all haunt.
Now hold on, Blue Shade. I may be a significant contributor to this forum, but I have *this* much technical knowledge about making computer games. (*cue sound of a water-droplet hitting the bottom of an empty bucket*)
I don't know how to play a pen and paper RPG (I know nothing about RPG, nothing at all) but maybe you could teach us how to do this online, and we could play it here?
I still say we can get some kind of Ghostbusters game going! If no one answers in the next month or so, I will try to ask around for tips about how to get something like this started and then maybe we can get started! I was expecting someone to show up who knows what to do, but I guess they're not around much, or not here at all...
I don't have any experience making games, but I have played a lot of them. Even RPGs (role playing game, just in case some do not recognize the abbreviation), in which technically, all games are RPGs... Take on the role of a character to reach a certain goal. But as for shaping a story for the game, maybe the forum can play a forum RPG taking on at most a few characters from the series, following a specific setting(s) and trying to get to a certain point that would ultimately become the final stages of the game. It could provide great ideas, as well as a dialog base.
