I've got a project in the works that's sort of a PsychoNauts fan-game where YOU are a star and a hero! Make a character and your door materializes within the Collective Subconcious! Build a world within your mind! It is a really low tech thing to sign up but here are the features:

*Over 10 psychic categories of characters
*Animal Crossing style time detection
*An involving plot of suspense and psychic warfare
*and the best part YOURE IN THE GAME!

however I need anyone who wants to help just post what you can do! What I need:

*sprite maker
*memory vault artist
*someone who can use BYOND to make a MMO version

anyone who wants to help, *slaps on a psychoportal* hop in.

Awesome! Here's the official character sign up sheet, just post it here...

Class:
SubClass:
Password: (Note:This should be PMed to me)
Mind Map:
Default power:

What to put where:

Class:Choose between Psychic, Pseudon, or Mortal
SubClass:Choose between one depending on your class
Psychic-Controlled mental ability
How it works:Pscyhics have a PsyPower meter that goes down with each attack, but like Raz they regain their power by collecting energy


Psychic:Unbridled power that was learned naturally
Psi-Cadet:Students that are learning their powers from professionals
PsychoNaut(Must be unlocked in-game):Masters of their powers


Pseudon-Subconcious mental ability
How it works:Pseudons actually have a Stress meter that starts empty, but as they collect energy it fills, one it's full they can unleash a mental beast of epic porportions

Pseudo:These have had issues with their powers in the past
PseudoNaut:A rebel group out to control their abilities
PsychoCon(Must be unlocked):Pros that are helping the PsychoNauts


Mortal-No power
Why use it?!:Mortals have no psychic power but have natural attributes good for crippling psychics and turning the tables

Brute:Sheer strength that can block out most psychic Penetration techniques
Quick:Agility that can avoid most psychic targetting techniques
Techie:Technology users that can really filter out harmful psychic waves
Mechie:Users that have implanted their brains into vehicles or weapons in order to unleash their full psychic potential


Mind Map:Please make a guide to your mind that you can PM or post here

Power:If psychic please post one of Raz's powers or Cryokinesis
If pseudon please post Fire, Water, Lightning, Dark or Light
If mortal leave blank

Actually they don't have to be sprite looking at all! Try to make them almost Scott C. style, the only time when they have to look like sprites are in my mind which is a big TV with a buncha video games in it.

Anyway, how is Japan people-wise? I know there's a lot of schoolgirls and porn (just like in cartoons!).

I would like to take on one of the writing aspects of the game. (God bless you computer programmers and whoever is drawing the vaults). Whoever is writing the storyline I would be glad to help write or to be the editor of this game.

I like to edit so I would be as strict as possible in order to shape this game to what its true potential can be on such a limited source.

Smon
09-16-2005, 08:21 PM
Thanks! So far not much of the plot is planned out, since this game is really free base since it will be CONSTANTLY added to, I'm thinking a mission based thing, however each mission is a plot in it's own, what I've got so far (three plots):

1)PseudoNauts:A terrorist organization called the PseudoNauts is plotting to overthrow the PsychoNauts using their own brand of psychic force

2)CyberThought:A madman is switching the brains of top psychics with electronic brains used to break into PsychoNauts HQ.

3)Nothing to Fear but Fear:Someone is using FrightMare Gas to give psychics horrifying nightmares that while they sleep they commit crimes while simultaneously living their worst fears.

Klia, anything else you can come up with is welcome, just make sure to include which minds you have to go through to get to the goal.

Klia

Something interesting just popped up. I'm just throwing ideas out there. As someone who constantly changes sides, I probably will hate it later but sharing ideas is what we are here to do.

Isn't Raz now an important part of the Psychonauts world. We cannot completly ignore him. As some later level we could have the character delve into Raz's mind. For what reason? He could be under the Fear thing you presented or another mental thing can be plauging him.

A small but possibly fun idea to carry out. However I would also like to speculate more on the levels that are not inside people's minds as that can be just as important.

Not really a goal as I need to know more about the story that has already been set up. If you would like to PM me about it or just post it here I would be glad.

I have a huge, huge plan for a mental world, can draw up figments, write like crazy (since about 120 wpm and a lot of ideas is a good combination), and compose music of all styles.

I also am going to write up my character sheet right now.

Purple Squid

I'll wait for both of your character sheets KingCheez and Purple Squid. However I have no real say in this so you'll have to wait for Vocabulor.

This is harder than I thought it would be.

I'd hate to see what a Psychonaut Mary-Sue looks like.

Smon
09-17-2005, 03:19 AM
So far the Non-mental worlds I have conceptualized are:

PNHQ:Psychonauts HQ, a large base housing many psychics
Scalper Asylum:Another asylum, however it is still in business and NOT a tower
Tearpull City:A large city home to PNHQ, Scalpe rAsylum, and all kinds of other psychic happenings
Museum of Mental Exploration:A large museum housing all sorts of psychic history and a statue of Truman Zanatto made entirely of Psytanium (properly shielded for the masses of course)
Pathol Therapist Offices:A large building full of people devoted to Psychology rather then Psi-ence.

Klia

Pathol Therapist Offices:A large building full of people devoted to Psychology rather then Psi-ence.

This is perhaps my favorite place as it presents a whole different aspect to the mental world.

I'm a little wary of the asylum since there was another asylum in the game. However done carefully I think it could be done quite well.

I have begun thinking more about the Psuedo-Nauts. And I don't believe that they should have an underground lair or some type of cliched villian hideout. It would be interesting if they were cool, calm, and collected, as they tried to steer clear of such bumbles that many rebels make. (Ex: Coach Oleander. Way too sloppy) Instead they would infiltrate places of psychic energy and as the game progresses they have already taken over most of Tearpull City pyschics without anyone noticing.


www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html

I just found that link and it could help if you decide to construct upon this idea.

Another plotbunny just arrived with the mention of the Psuedo-Nauts. Here I may ramble without doing much.

What if one Psuedo-Naut worked in the asylum and was the cause of some of the asylum patients insanity. The whole time they talk to the person they fend pity for them but in reality are twisting up their psyche.

Inside of this person's mind it would be two conflicting worlds. I don't mean like Gloria's light/darkness. Take for example something as simple as a street. Half of the street would be white and the other half would be black. This would be from their own view of the world and the Psuedo-Naut's invading view of the world.

I'm going to have to expand on this later.

Smon
09-17-2005, 05:03 PM
Pretty good... and anyway the key difference between Thorney Towers and Scalper Asylum is that Scalper is still up and running, meaning it's more organized, however they still accept freelance visits from psychics. And I'll check out that list for ideas, btu really I can't get started until I get some sprites. :(

This brings memories of my favorite Simpsons episode...

Homer:Can't ya put off the apocalypse for a few more years?
God:Are you mad? The people of Earth deserve it!
Homer:Oh we're not all bad...
God:NO? Look, my son went down there a while back and... I don't know what you people did to him, but he's never been the same since... *points to Jesus looking sad on a swingset*

09-17-2005, 08:46 PM
Yeah, that bugs me...

Hercules:I'm the son of god! *becomes a hero*
Jesus:I'm the son of god! *gets put to the cross*

Also crucifixion was a pretty common execution method back then... how come we only remember Jesus for it? I'll always remember one person, he was put to the cross for doing something no one else would do... however no nails were used... and right before his death he was saved by one hero, and the man at the cross was RORONOA ZOLO! The only man to look badass with a sword in his mouth.

And all French people say that-one-line-I-am-not-about-to-type-since-I-have-bad-grammer-but-it-means-OMG-in-French.

American sterotypes run rampant too. Sterotypes are fun to laugh about and more fun to laugh about when people think that they are something to follow.

Though sometimes the laughing can be too loud or too soft and the balance gets out of wack.

B: The nerdy girl who everyone picks on and I have low self-esteem. (Think of me as the girl who goes down the hallways singing songs in her head. And the funny part is that if I tried for coolness I probably would be high on the cool meter.)

C: A prep with all the latest clothes.

Hell. If people could just understand my sense of humor, I'd be freaking AWESOME. But since they're all little gangsta'/punks and care about nothing but lewd humor and judging other people, they don't care. I have a very dry, emotionless sense of humor at school.

I personally like the cowboy stereotype. Or the balding fat guy with big sunglasses.
