CREATING A FREE GODZILLA GAME13,317 Views18 RepliesAdd A Reply
First thing, im new here though i visit the site on and on.
Second thing, sorry me for my english as im from Spain and i do my best! ^^
And the third thing is the game thing:
I was a game modder in videogames like Alien Versus Predator 2, Battles for Middle Earth, GP500 and MOTOGP Urt and MotoGP 08. So that project inst fantasy or something imposible but im out from the modding scene a few years now and thats why i need help this time.
I cant reveal all the game stuff and ideas but the main idea is a 2d graphics videogame where you can choose a lot of Kaijus wich can go on different locations around the world. You move in the locations using turns (like a chees game) and in certain times you enter on a fight mode wich is like a fighting game, against Kaijus and even military forces.
The visuals, though are 2d graphics (creating this game with 3d models will be a massive work) are intended to be photorealistic. In fact when you fight with your Kaiju youre controlling them in a view as you were there, kinda like the Godzilla 2014 movie. Heres a "concept basic picture" (wich is basicly an scene from the Legendary film) so you can get an idea of the fight scenes.
WHATS DONE AND WHATS NEEDED:
I was developing the game concept that last days, so game concept and mechanics are already finished.
I can manage the work of recreating every Kaiju in a good looking way using drawing skills and photoshop and i can balance and design all balances, interface and so but....
What i cant do right now is to programm the anims. I mean i can make all the images (kinda the old sprite videogames or the daikaju battle royale free game) but no idea right now about how to get all pieces and controls working together.
So, if youre one of those who knows how to do it and wants to help in someway, i cant say nothing but thank you! Count on you G-Fans!!!
Though i manage my own scifi, figures, comics and related stuff website (www.desdekryptonhastamordor.com) , and ill host the game there once finished (it will take a long time to do it) i have no problems with hosting in this comunity, promote this site on the game or anything.
I just want to create a free cool looking Godzilla game for all.
Thanks and see you guys!
Hey welcome to the site! We're glad to have you! As a gamer and Godzilla fan I cant wait to see this project! So is it like a Daikaiju Battle royale styled game? Or something completely new? I love 2-d styled games!
Have you ever heard of the RPG Maker? It's a very powerfull 2D Game-Creation Software; it's easy to use and fast!
The software has a huge community and you will find sprites for nearly everything you want or need throughout the internet.

This might come in handy with your project.
Hi again and thanks for the replies!
No, its not like Daikaju Battle Royale, i want to leave that game at his own creating something different.
It has rpg things (like upgrade Kaijus with XP earned, or consecuences based on the cities you destroy on your way), strategy stuff (moving across the world in a turn system style) and fight or action game (as you will fight against other Kaijus and even military forces).
Havent heard about the RPG Maker, DestoroyahX, thank you very much for the info, looks like it could be really useful!
Im happy being registered here at last, thanks again and hope you guys getting involved in the project in any way, ill do my best and keep updated about it :)
U R welcome. The Lite Version in the Link above is for free!
I'm looking forward to it.

Do not worry about the language , we are from different corners of the world, just keep in mind to try to maintain a decent grammar......lot of us, we try to do our best ;) .
If you have any questions or problems do not hesitate to send me a PM.
Btw, I love the name of your site.
The world will spin well past our last breath, but I will always care about you
Thanks for the nice replies guys :)
And yeah, ill do my best to maintain a decent grammar, feel you free to tell me if i made any mistakes! Is all about learning
You really love the site´s name? i guess it sounds strange for non spanish speakers. It means From Krypton To Mordor, but ill change it in a near future to DKHM wich i think is easiest to remember.
By the way im on the rpg forums looking for some answers to see if that program could work. Ill keep it update
I speak spanish, and yes I really liked the site's name.
The world will spin well past our last breath, but I will always care about you
Then...thank you again hahahah
By the way... i was studying rpg maker a bit and i think its more simple than what i need.
Im taking a look to Game Maker right now. Maybe harder to use but seems much more complete.
Ive asked in Game Maker forums and seems my concept is really possible so... ill download the demo vers of the program and check tutorials to start that project. It will take a big time i guess.
If anyone wants to join or help in someway, would be really great :)
ill keep the topic updated with any progress but im sure it will take a few months.
Ill start working right now. As i said, any help is more than welcome.
If any of you post some Kaiju pics would be usefull too.
I need high res pics, specially from the sides and in all kind of movements.
Ive just started the walking anims for Godzilla 2014 and it seems it works.
Its a huge work, i think that ill need about 120 frames per Kaiju, plus the special effects, the destruction for backgrounds and so...
Ive just taked a walking frame and put it into a random background to get an idea of how the kaiju fights would look, here it is:
Do you know guys if there is another Godzilla fansite? Is that one the bigger one?
Im just thinking about doing the game or not as seems theres no real interest isnt? And is too much work to make for me and maybe one or 2 more guys
Since you rather need a programmer than a Godzilla Fan, i would recommend that you look for one in the Game Maker Forum. If you have questions about the Godzilla universe, this is the perfect place for you.
There are plenty of godzilla pictures in the Gallery:
I dont need a programmer, thats the point. I can get it by my own and a friend of mine (if need programming help later on sure ill try it in the game maker forums) i just mean that i thought people will find it cool and there will be more interest you know.
Anyway, ill do my thing and let you know all :)
Have a nice day!
I think that there might be more interest in your work if you would show more than two quick photoshoped images. You wrote thath you can "recreate every Kaiju in a good looking way using drawing skills and photoshop and … balance and design all balances, interface and so…". How about you show more of that? Because so far it sounds all great and stuff, but i still can't imagine what the whole picture looks like.
You wrote that you are "a game modder in videogames like Alien Versus Predator 2, Battles for Middle Earth, GP500 and MOTOGP Urt and MotoGP 08." Show people your work, you might find a someone. :)
Man this is gonna be great.
Yep, i guess youre right about show stuff and so, the point is that its impossible as i havent started. I was just checking if it could be interesting for people to play something like ive told because its too much work for just 1 or 2 guys. Dont get me wrong, i like to mod games and to create them too, but its too hard and takes too much of your time.
So my first goal was to check interest and if someone helps then the better!
And about old stuff ive done in the past, here are some pics:
The Faster site was mine. I just left some years ago, when modding in motogp games lost sense because of new releases of motogp games year after year.
It was another project. A game about werewolves and vampires that i didnt finished because was based on a book of mine i didnt finish at the time. I just finished the book right now but need to check it again before publishing. Once its done, ill take a look on that old project when i have the free time i need for it.
And now, my complete last work. It was 2007 and from then i just made minor works not a complete and huge mod like that one in next pics. Maybe you find graphics a bit ugly but check the last pic to see how was the original game.
If you look in internet for GP500 FRA or GP500 Faster maybe you find some mods of mine there.
That other pic is a building ive done for Battles of Middle Earth game. One of various mods ive done, all with the "LGDA" at beggining of the mod name as it was my game clan.
And about drawing skills some old stuff:
