Looks pretty fun. Usually I would say it wouldn't get finished but it's you, JJJ, and you'd be contradicting yourself majorly if this didn't get completed. And I don't think you'd want to do that. I'm interested to see if I'm in there and to find out what you can actually do in the Moderation screen.

Magventure.

11 years ago
You'd have better put me in there. Although if you did I probably sound like a geek spouting evil world-domination plans and gibberish... So I don't know what to hope for.

Magventure.

11 years ago

Oh, I almost posted something really sarcastic. . . but I wouldn't do that to JJJ-- I'm scared of him . . .

So, you fixed it so that all the games on CYS can be played in your game? That sounds hard to do.

C'mon, list the members you put in the game- I wanna see.   (Plus, that way you'll have plenty of time to listen to everyone who isn't in the game give you reasons to include them ;)

Magventure.

11 years ago
Well hte game part was easy lol, youll get it wen you see it.  I included the eight trophy members of course but I've also included: Simpsons, Tsmpaul, October, Rommel and DV_13.  Sorry Seth I just didnt know what to put for you.  Like theres no specific thing I could think of that gained ur friendship.

Magventure.

 Thanks, dude. That's so cool that i'm gonna be in it.

That means people can gain your friendship, talk to you in the forums and communicate via personal message as well as DUEL THE MASTER.

Magventure.

11 years ago

Duel the master? I'm assuming your'e talking about me, so to whoever that n00b is: BRING IT ON!!!!

riley

Magventure.

11 years ago
Game sounds cool. But, all 300+ games? Dang. Thats gonna be hard.

Magventure.

11 years ago

I'm already done that part :)

And DV13, yeah in my game its not just 50% chance its harder for different people but the wager is higher so like if they beat you they get 5 points but if they lose they lose 5.  Its just alot harder to win.  Against me its a 3 point wager, against nate, simpsons, alexp its 4.  Against Solo its 2, madglee and tsm its 1. Etc.

Magventure.

where is this... magventure?? :P

Magventure.

It's unpublished, I can't wait until it's done. Great game idea JJJ!!!

Magventure.

11 years ago
Thanks.  Its actually an improved (much) one of yours.  So Im going to put you in the credits.

Magventure.

11 years ago
I cannot wait either, it sounds really good!

Magventure.

11 years ago
At this rate (Dunan if I can sustain it, but Im feeling good).  It should be done withen 7 days.

Magventure.

11 years ago

7 days? Wow, I wouldn't believe most people but I don't think you would say that and know that you couldn't finish it. Good luck!

Sounds awesome. I know everyone had already said that but I couldn't be left out. Speaking of being left out.....






I really don't care just as long as the story is good. : ]

Can I be a bad guy?

Magventure.

What specific thing do you need to gain my friendship, if you don't mind me asking?

Magventure.

11 years ago
Sounds very cool and I'm happy to be in it! I don't quite follow exactly what it will look like/function as. You made this CYS and within its functionality you can create games, chat, duel, etc? That's amazing if that's the case. I have no idea how that would work. How would you save your story, etc? Looking forward to it.

Magventure.

11 years ago

Thanks for including me, JJJ :)  I too, am not sure how this story will play, from the descriptions, but it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun!

Magventure.

Hey jjj can u tell me what you are gonna make me like in the game? (like how I act and stuff)

Suggestions:Have the ability to:

-You should be able to choose whether you want to write the next epic or another "Gary and the evil washing machine or whatever it's called

-make enemies

-be completed jerks to people

So basically you should be able to choose between being one of the  tops of the site, or the losers who put no effort in their games.

riley

Magventure.

11 years ago
Yeah that'll be cool. It could be a cool/annoying member kind of game.

Magventure.

11 years ago

"Sorry Seth I just didnt know what to put for you.  Like theres no specific thing I could think of that gained ur friendship." 

You could give me your trophy ;)  Then I'd be your friend.

Seriously, this game sounds really cool.

Magventure.

11 years ago

You want your own badly dont you?  Well not yet my friend :)

What I meant was how could a newb entice you into being friends.  As for you October I shall not reveal what must happen because getting trophies and friendships are like secrets to the game.

Also to clarify a few things up:

 

1. The game maker wont be as sophisticated as actually saving your games madglee :).  This is not an epic merely an awesome game.  You will be able to choose a certain amount of options (which it saves).  Use a certain amount of time to work on it (which it saves, if you publish it after only a few sessions it might have only length 3, etc.)  Doing different things with it (choosing differetn genres, different lengths, etc.) Can attract members to it.

2. DV13, there are ways to piss everyone off.  (Like posting about sports in the lounge bazillions of times), abusing moderation powers in teh News & Updates (because you can earn moderation), etc.

3. As for making enemies?  Not so much, I think I could get alot of people pissed at me in this site.  Lets say I made Alexp get all mad at you for something you didnt think was a big deal or more importantly he didnt think was a big deal. Now all of a sudden it looks like Im setting him up to be a jerk, etc.  I'm going to leave this one out.

4.  No Darth Vader, I wont tell you how you're going to be.

 

PLEASE MORE SUGGESTIONS AND DISCUSSION.

Magventure.

Holy crap, that means I'm working at 25 Pages per day... That means at this rate it would take

20 days to write a Mattias length story... effign intense.

Magventure.

11 years ago
but your writing pages with not too much text... see if u wanted a storygame, then 25 pages a day would make it a long, crap story,....

Magventure.

11 years ago
Hey, can you put me in the backround, not really a character but still there?

Magventure.

11 years ago

you can be that dude who replaces Thatguy in the duels article. "Standing to the side Mage is shocked at what transpired". lol that would be funny.

nate

Magventure.

11 years ago
Yeah!
As long as I'm not left out. Besides I was just about to post that!
IDEA STEALER!

Magventure.

11 years ago

haha my bad. you could also be just a new member who is looking for help. needing someone to help you with your game. or you could be someone elses secret identity (dramatic music). just a thought.

nate

Magventure.

11 years ago
The 1st one was better. Although I like the dramatic music...

Magventure.

11 years ago
Or maybe I could do none of that and not include you cuz I dislike you.  HAHAH just kidding, I have nothing against you.  I'l put you into the part of the game that only madglee knows about.

I never said I was gonna challenge you to make a better one. You're gonna die, you overgrown eggplant!

Magventure.

11 years ago
I didnt imply you were going to challenge me in any way.  I just said that this game is a heck of alot better then anything you can/will/have make/made.

Magventure.

11 years ago
Actually, man, this is a f*cking great idea. I've checked it out. Lots of work obviously into it and because it seems almost too obvious, it's wonderful. Very bizarre and isn't a rehash of the site. It's a story of its own, told through its members.

Magventure.

11 years ago

WOOT MAGVENTURES IS DONE!! Not...

Im now done the entire site except

A few friendships
Trophies
Point Calculations
And a special awesome thing only madglee knows about.

Magventure.

Shoot, I also have to do moderation.

Hey Silver, that's Captain Redbeard from lego racers isn't it? I love that game...

Also, I would like to know how I look in the game. Can you give me the demo link JJJ?

Magventure.

11 years ago
lol no are you kidding me.  There are secrets in there that cant get out.  Plus its hours from completion, wouldnt be much of a demo.  Plus, dont try hacking it, it wont work.

Magventure.

i'm making a slightly Different game, Since i finished War Of Brothers my next planned game is About becoming one of several MAG/CYS Members.Yuo can become yourself, and build up from what you are now to what you could become. So JJJ  is a great game maker, His skills of game making are high up there,but in my next game you can do that, and Build up your other skills. Me i'm a great dueler, so My Duel skills are high up, and I can work on game making. So, so on and so forth. I'm starting that game now. You will start at 0 EXP Points but you will have your skills though.

Magventure.

Expected: Late Tonight
Later then Expected: Tommorow.
Absolutely Unforseeable: Tommorow night.
