    So, a friend and me are currently writing a design doc for a platform game that we want to develop as a "currently" homebrew game.

    The game is in simple terms an exploration game. The goal is to explore, take out threats that may danger your life, and in the progress, recover your memory and find out more about yourself because you are suffering from amnesia

    The character constantly comments on its surrounding
    with comments that are humor full (that younger players might not get) and make the player really get into the character.

    The game will be a single player experience and we are currently in the discussion if we want to make a mature game or a typical Nintendo game that is suited for all ages above 6.

    So there is the question,

    do you have a need for a more mature game?

    swearing doesn't = "mature"
    just limits the audience.


    generally, I find the "mature" games to be the most brainless and immature.
    fun games, make a fun game

    Well, make it like my oppinion on a mature game...
    Where there is this exploration... maybe not bad language, but more mature humor maybe,.... and deeper.. make it so much deeper than the average game...

    like the diff of a childrens book and a "mature"-book... haha

    For me, a mature game just means not all flowers-and-bunnies. Yes, I want more mature games on the DS.

    I didn't spot a single curse word in Hotel Dusk, yet I found it ten times more mature than metal gear or GTA.

    Using "mature" language only means you're whoring yourself out to fifteen-year-olds who don't have a clue about what being a grown-up means.

    PS : If you wanna code YOUR game, why even ask OUR opinion in the first place? [​IMG]

    Because we value the players opinion. If they would like to see certain things in a game they haven't yet had a chance to do then I'd like to consider it.

    And this is an issue we would like the people who play DS games opinions on.

    We don't want any cursing in it unless it adds to the characters character and has any humor value. It just doesn't improve the story in anyway if we would put in fuck 230 times. I'd rather just put in smart comments in there that kids don't get.
    so no, mature isn't just swearing and sex. (the latter being difficult since him ATM being the only human there, unless you would like to see a 28 year old male hitting it off with a giant mushroom kind of plant that explodes into spores)

    Well, combining humour with philosphical topics, i guess, that would be mature enough.

    cool.. I will post a new topic with a public version of the design doc once its finished. I need it to get some attention from the homebrew community for this project, since we are in drastic need of a good programmer. I am also in the middle of figuring out graphical styles for the game, which I will add those to the topic as well once finished.
