Have any of you developed an rpg? What was your experience like? Any advice?

no matter how much you balance players will find an exploit to completely break battles, economy and whatever other mechanic you have.
So focus on making the game fun and have an engaging story and worldbuilding
>>
No, but I've made mods and several fan campaigns and custom maps with scripted events for several games reaching from Half-Life, DOOM (OG+16), Warcraft 2+3 etc.

All I can tell you, from my experience, is that game programming is 20% coding 80% testing. Get used to do a LOT of testing.
>>
>>659132

I do text based stuff, so I can not give advice on graphical design or coding in those engines. That being said, the best thing I can say is write your story before you build your mechanics and advanced coding. If you do the mechanics first then you will waste time because you will inevitably want to change them by the end (usually sooner). Also you want the story and settings to inform the mechanics and NOT the other way around.

Like for text based I will essentially write a choose your own adventure with just basic html linkage between the passages. Then when I'm finished I will go back and add all the actual coding, java, css etc.

Level drain traps were one of the ways to minmax your units in FFT. It wasn't necessary at all due to the game's difficulty, but the idea was simply to drop down then grind back up with whatever class gives you the stat you wanted to raise, ex Ninja for Speed or Mime for Magic.

Discuss the greatest rpg(s?) of all time right here!

Currently starting Gothic 3 after playing 1 and 2 first, anyone can give a nublet some tips? I played the game years ago, barely remember anything - went in wanting to play a mage, now lvl 10 and kinda warming up to using bow. Do I fuck myself later if I go for dexterity with bows / dex weapons?

I started with Gothic 3 and it turned me off from the series.
is the melee combat the most horrible thing on Earth in 1 and 2 as well?
I typically go sword and board or dual wielding for the first playthrough of any game

you can do neither in gothic 1 and 2 but the combat is actually good compared to 3

Melee is good in 1 & 2, but I played those for ages. Dont know if youll warm up to it if you never played before. 1h and 2h combat is available for melee, no shields in those games
I dont have to tell you theyre janky as fuck, but well worth it for the worldbuilding imo

3 is a completely different game. The only thing it has in common is the names of main characters

That was the best part of P4 though, the rest of the game was mediocre.

Because its generally a pretty shitty trope overall. Introducing the antagonist early is a good thing to do if you want to really build them up, but if you just hide them as some random npc questgiver you deny the possibility of a lot of the buildup in exchange for surprise factor.
If you want to pull that shit making the antagonist a party member or a recurring character or something is usually a more interesting way to go about it.

it's cool - it can get away with it by being a Switch game
if this shit was a current-gen console game, it'd be shit on like crazy. I'm glad the Switch exists that lets devs focus on gameplay and content rather than graphics, so smaller budget JRPGs can still be made. Just like what the 3DS did.
