Game Dev RP OOC
I will be GM (Games master). Essentially I will be the market. I will determine the successes, trends, sales, reactions and whatnot.
To maintain neutrality, I will not own any businesses.
Financial security is determined by %.
Everyone starts at 5%.
Bankruptcy must be declared at 0% and your assets will be auctioned off.
The control of your former company is determined by the new owner/s.
Each post is a week and the date must written in bold at the beginning.
Production time will be noted in the quality/hype of your game.
I will occasionally write dateless reports or other posts about the current situation in the market, these will no advance the date.
You can only post up to three times in a row, for in-game stuff.
Tech must be appropriate for the time.
However you can invest in tech that is “before its time” however the further away from its intended era, the more expensive the manufacture, research and product will be.
Features of consoles will affect price and therefore profits, so beware of making low-price consoles with many features.
Game concepts are affected by current limitations of tech.
You cannot state sales, popularity or fan base reactions without the GM’s permission.
No obvious rip-offs/ real names please.
Game ratings will be determined by a list of a maximum of 10 significant features and will be compared to other games in market at the time.
PM me with this for basic sales (without marketing/hype) and the same for magazine reviewers.
Note: Not all market info will be public, some need research and other marketing techniques to access them.
Usual RP rules Apply:
No directly changing other people’s stuff
No ridiculous numbers.
Use RP thread for On-topic only, post off-topic in the off-topic thread.
If off-topic is needed, please use brackets and off-topic: or OT:.
These rules will be updated as time goes on, however participants will be notified.
Since no real world products will be in this RP, I need three console owners to start it off. The tech must be appropriate for 1985. The places are limited, so sign up!
Otherwise state the name of your company and an optional logo and sign up here.
You can discuss improvements/additions to rules here as well before the RP starts.
