Grounds of Praepoten

As per my previous post, “I’m in a dilemma” , I’m actively taking steps to get out of it. This includes trying to reward my ADHD more often so I can remain motivated. Now, I would like some genuine feedback so it doesn’t sound like I’m “fishing for compliments” especially as it’s not at all what I’m doing.

So I’ll get started, I’m actively working on a large game called, “Grounds of Praepoten.” Which is a multi-franchise inspired (Touhou mostly, undertale, certain RPs I’ve been in) bullet hell, open-world RPG game. I’m working on ofuda cards and an ofuda card deck system.

I would appreciate any help I could get, though!

A hand of spellcards

seems like a very cool system! i would personally focus on animations on casting spells, like having your character do the motion of pulling a card out their hand or something, you can focus on animating and changing the spells later, but that player animation is a key part on making something look cool/better.
also im not a developer so idk how you would pull this off but the third move looks like it needs just a teeny bit of optimisation.

I truly do like the design of the card, and I you also did a perfect job tilting them as if they are being held by a person. However, I believe the VFX could use some work, although I see potential in them. Also the quality of the video probably didn’t help the way they looked.

Nice work overall :+1:

Thank you for your input, and I absolutely agree! I am not motivated at the moment to focus on animation, however, I am working with another developer for optimization.

Alright, ive played it and although the concept is good, it probably needs a little polishing, like how i can be damaged by my own attacks (idk if its intentional) or like how certain spells wont follow my character despite looking like they should do, apart from that however, i am really excited to see where this idea goes!
