    I need some help here. I'm planning to create a game based on the shingeki no kyojin anime series, it will be produced using Unity3d. The game will go through the story of the battle against the titans. The main character in the game will be Eren just like the manga/anime. It will go through Eren, Mikisa and Armin training to join the recon corps. The bit i need help and tips with is the gameplay element should i impliment a role playing structure and environment or make it more of an action hack/slash game or anything else?
    Thanks

    You know, an Attack on Titan game is already confirmed. But I guess you still want to make your own.

    So, you basically want opinions on what type of game to make?
    Think of what suits the series better and what will be easier to make. After all, I don't think many people will be willing to work on this.
    Also, if it's a fangame, bear in mind that you have to release the game for free. Companies don't like it when people steal their IPs for money.

    Unfortunately it doesn't have to be for-profit, there's been C&D letters on all sorts of fan projects... Chrono Trigger's remake being notable.

    Good. Now to other stuff:
    Unity3D, huh. That means that you'll be using 3D graphics and such. Do you have any experience with 3D modelling and animation? If not, it'd be a better idea to stay in 2D. Also, you have to have some mechanics in your head to make a game. Otherwise if you make them up on the fly, your game will fail. You've got a story thought up, which is good, because you can build the mechanics around the story, so they fit better. After all, you wouldn't put a turn-based RPG in a Sonic game...oh wait.

    I could not make that into a shooter game it would be rather... awful.
    Google shingeki no kyojin and you'll know what i mean
    also my last plan for a sci-fi shooter didn't go so well

    So, you want to expand upon that game? Interesting. I would actually love to see it. Unfortunately, as much as I would like to help you with this plan, I lack the proper skills to do it. Sorry.

    A project of such, well, titanic scope seems quite a bit out of your range.
