I am currently looking for a programmer to create a series of tools to make the process of developing a sidescroller / RPG hybrid easier and require the least coding possible.
The idea would be similar to ORK RPG KIT ( [url removed, login to view] ), but a simplified version, directed for a Platformer / Action RPG (think Odin Sphere/Princess Crown)
The editors should provide a graphical, easy to use UI that can take care of:
Databases for: Characters / Enemies / Item / Equipment / Skill / Status Effects
Basic Enemy AI (Such as Range of Sight / Aggressive or Passive / basic Attack patterns)
Basic Skill / Attack: Should handle Projectiles / Moving Spells / Melee Combat
Menu & Dialogue HUD
Event Editor : to create interactions within the game, Chests, NPCs, Cutscenes
Music Editor ; To define when music clips are played in the levels, music changes etc are handled through this tool
I am willing to use any of the 2d tools available (Sprite Manager 2, Unitile, etc) to speed up wok, as well as using ORK rpg kit and modifying it to fit my needs, so I am open to all these options, as well of course to having a custom product programmed.
To summarize:, I need a coder to either:
-Create a custom framework for 2d side-scrolling action RPGs
-Modify ORK RPG kit to easily work on 2d action RPG gameplay
