Harmonious [development thread]
I'm working on a pretty intense project, so I want to share the progress on the forums. I will try to update this thread as much as I can.
Harmonious is an ambient,atmospheric,arcade style game with gorgeous graphics and music (at least I hope so). You play with a play box (mechanical music box), that makes music along the way while you're playing. I started with a prototype, showed it to some friends and partners, they simply loved the concept. So I figured, why not create some sort of story around it, something that most people wont forget? Most games these days are mass produced to make a few quick bucks in the appstores, but do we really enjoy them? Do we play it for weeks? No, we don't. We play them for a few days, and simply get bored. Most developers are still trying to create "the next flappy bird", chances are its not going to happen. Why wont a developer make something that really stands out? Something the player really can get attached to? I personally love game's that are made with passion and beauty, but I guess thats just me
Anyway, I'm not going into to much detail about the mechanics right now , they are not finalized (more on this soon).
Here is the first screenshot of the design I'm going for (main screen), keep in mind that this is a draft, but the game is already functional:)
huge thanks to @Socks for helping me with some mechanical stuff!
