Dark Impulses Recruitment & Discussion

Postby Dapper Gent » Fri Mar 25, 2016 11:55 pm

Good day, ladies and gents.

Dapper Gent of Dark Impulses, the group formerly known as Team M.E.S.A., at your service. I'm here today to tell you our group has evolved (Pokemon pun intended) into something more than just a small collection of designers that came together to make a fanmade adult parody of one of our favorite series. We are now branding ourselves as a group of designers that want to eventually expand into other adult games based on games like Fallout and Skyrim and to make a few games based on non-game series/franchises, such as Disney princesses.

Of course Pokemon Pink and it's sequels is our group's main focus. And, quite frankly, we could use some help in keeping production up on the game. Or maybe get a group together to work on a side project.


Dark Impulses Patreon

Artists: Dapper Gent (Battle Art), White Vine (everything)

Spritemaster: ninjician (Geist)

Codebreaker: ValturNaa

Exterminator: Dead2112man (Bugs and Quality Control)


What we need:

ARTISTS!

White and myself are hard at work pumping out battle and scene art. We are in need of someone who could possibly mimic our styles, excels at sketches or can do base scene art.
Please send me a PM for more details, for examples or if you have any questions.

*Hentai scene artists are needed the most. I'd even be willing to add in desperately.


PROGRAMMERS!

At this point it's imperative that we get another programmer on board to help ValturNaa. His pleas for assistance have only gotten louder over the past couple of months. Anyone familiar with Gamemaker should PM him and CC me.


MUSICIANS/SOUND TECHS

Albeit not a must have or even needed, it'd just be nice to have some unique music in our games or a modern twist on the music from the games we're basing ours off of.

WRITERS!

We currently don't need any writers for Pokemon Pink but will require them for future games. Personally, I'd like to start up a series of erotica short stories based in the universe of Pokemorph. This will give our fans something to do in between beating each chapter of the game and waiting for the next one. Some stories might even make it in the games as side events.

WEBMASTER!

Admittedly, our group is a bunch of potatoes when it comes to website design. Sadly we're all too busy to do it ourselves. So we're looking for a trustworthy soul to help us get organized and give us a more polished look. Additionally, the webmaster will be a Quality Assurance Specialist and will help creative patreon incentives as well as gift reward ideas for the community and patron and so forth.

ANIMATORS!

Both 2D and 3D. Although not needed immediately we do plan to implement animated 2D scenes. My main ambition here is to start up a 3D Hentai series called Pokemorph Chronicles. If you're familiar with Source Filmmaker please send me a PM.

INCENTIVES!

Members of the Dark Impulses team will have several perks. These include, but may not be limited to...

-Receiving customized avatars that will be in the games, as well as being able to choose their own theme, team and gear, as each game permits. These characters will also play a role in most games.
-Full credit and acknowledgment for your work. Although our stuff will be a team effort, credit will be given where credit is due.
-Give input and help shape every aspect of the games being designed. We may not agree with all changes and suggestions but we tend to keep the good ones.
-Share ideas to make additional games later on.
-A piece of the patron pie (once we get to that point).


CURRENT AND FUTURE PROJECTS!
Pokemon Pink
Pokemorph Pink (aka Pink 2)
Pokemorph Revolution (aka Pink 3)
Pokemorph: Dark Version (with possible sequels)
Pokemorph Breeder (ValturNaa Idea)
Pokemorph Chronicles (3D animated series)
Krystal Defense (ValturNaa Idea)
Vault 69 (Fallout Parody; Bubba91 Idea)
DizneyWhoreld (Disney based game series, Val & Dapper Idea)
LoZ: The Ebon Goddesses

C+, Flash, maybe some knowledge of Gamemaker and/or unity. For more details you'll have to send a message to ValturNaa.

On a side note, I've renamed our group to Dark Impulses. Team M.E.S.A. is the organization in our first game and we kept it until we decided that we'll be branching off into other parody games later.

With that said we are still needing programmers and artists now more than ever.

I was reasonably competent at Game Maker back in the day. I've learnt some other languages through school and uni but Matlab and PHP aren't usually good for games (although I did try once for a laugh).

Go ahead and shoot ValturNaa a pm. He'll give you the skinny on our needs.

I have all of the skills that you are looking for, but none of your game ideas really appeal to me. I would prefer doing projects with original characters.

Ahh, well understandable
I might not create games, but I will test them, Then I will give advice on what I think needs to be added, removed, or improved.

You need 10 total to complete probation. Come give me some ideas in the brainstorming topic if you're not there yet.

You do realize that only 2 of the mentioned projects use unoriginal characters, right? The other games take place in the same universe, such as the Pokémon parodies, and have shared characters (like Prof Oak) but will feature unique main characters and storylines. Unless you'really referring to a completely original game. If that'a the case, yeah we'really mostly in the Fandom and parody business.

However, if you'received interested I do have one project that you could help us with that is completely original.

Project: Splicers
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3331
All info is there. This was my original game concept and suggestion. I'be not made any plans for it since.


On another note, we're still looking for the listed positions.

Yeah, I mean more of an original concept game. Like I wouldn't mind a pokemon parody that is called something like Fukamon where Tittiurtle evolves into Racktoise, but a direct this-is-the-pokemon-universe-but-with-sex parody doesn't sit well with me. Besides not scratching an originality itch, I'd be worried that Nintendo would try to crush it if it ever noticed.

The Splicers idea sounds a lot like the sort of game I've been planning to make myself. Here are my anthro hentai adventure games, Puppy Love & Dildo and Knarf's Quest: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=6114 If that is the kind of thing you'd like to make, I would love to team up on that. They could obviously use some improvement. My plan for Knarf's Adventure was to send him to various real world locations where he meets anthro women based on the local wildlife like raccoons and pidgeons in NYC or eagles and steinbocks in an Alps ski resort, caimans and anacondas on an Amazon river cruise. I am envisioning lots of little games so as not to get black-holed into some kind of incompleteable mega-project. I had also spit-balled some space adventure hentai ideas if you wanted something different.

Splicers sounds like kind of a longer project than I'd be willing to commit to right now. My life is highly volatile.

You and I both, my friend. I understand having a volatile life at the moment.

That does sound about where my idea for Splicers is at, in comparison to Splicers. I'll have to look further into those games later due to my schedule at the moment. But I can see a small series of 'Knarf Goes to...', so yeah, plenty of smaller games for him to adventure through.

In theory, and how I envisioned it, Splicers isn't supposed to be a huge project. It's a small puzzle game. Go find item A, give it to person A, get item B, find location where item B goes, lather, rinse, repeat. I think there was 5 rooms total, so just a lot of running back and forth as new species pop up.

Also, I'm pretty sure Nintendo would have a field day if they found our game in these forums, of all places. Fortunately we're based in the US and are protected by satirical and parody laws, both domestic and internationally. As long as we don't claim that it's a direct Pokemon game or say we have any affiliations with Game Freak, Nintendo, or the Pokemon Company, or any other name brands (like Disney) (which we don't!) then we'll be fine.

Oh okay, from the description, I was imagining something like Zootopia the game. 5 rooms with people coming and going shouldn't be too bad. Knarf's Quest was something like 13 rooms and 16 puzzles/characters, which was rough, but mostly because Flash CS4 shat its pants over the way I stored the dialog.

The Puppy Love & Dildo test game goes by really quick, 10 or 15 minutes maybe. Knarf's Quest is good for 30m-60m I think, depending on how fast you read and how well you figure out the puzzles. A good chunk of the puzzles aren't even really puzzles, just talk to people after the "main story" finishes. Here is the poorly labeled topic for both games: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=6114

We are looking to escape flash (yes I know it's popular, but it's shit) and I've managed to line up a skilled programmer who knows gamemaker but who is presently occupied, so at this point it's just a matter of continuing to develop the game in the current engine until he is available to help me build a new engine.

AcetheSuperVillain Wrote:

To be honest, in most circumstances, I prefer original work also. As I've tried continuously to suggest improvements for the new engine, I find myself chafing under the fact that it's fucking pokemon and no one wants to change anything (except for the obvious, they're hot anthros and perpetually horny), and I'm beginning to feel that the only way to handle a pokemon game is to avoid being pokemon like the plague. On the other hand, the idea of pokemon is so catchy that I still want to give the franchise a serious reboot into a game that doesn't scream "cheap 90s handheld game." And I don't think you give us enough credit. It takes a great deal of creativity to create an original story that takes place at the same time as another, pre-existing story the way *our* story wraps itself around the pokemon anime without causing contradictions. Creating a whole new cast of characters is much easier than that, and as far as I'm concerned, so is building a whole damn world. Fan fic has never looked so skilled as it has since I began this project. And yes, I can fill your ears with not one but numerous original worlds that I have constructed, some of them coming *from* other games and others completely original.
I'm not mad. I'm only forty and eighty percent crazy, and that's split between two personalities, which makes me almost half sane.

I do recognize that it's just as hard to make a piece of fiction in an existing world, even harder if it's a world that's not particularly suited to your purpose, but that's actually part of why I would want to make original worlds instead of fanfics, if I'm going to put forth the effort, I might as well have complete creative control and not have to worry about Nintendo suing my ass someday. Part of it is just that world-building and character-building are probably the most fun parts for me, so if I'm giving them up, why am I bothering to make a story at all?

In case it were glossed over, I did say:
Like I wouldn't mind a pokemon parody that is called something like Fukamon where Tittiurtle evolves into Racktoise, but a direct this-is-the-pokemon-universe-but-with-sex parody doesn't sit well with me. Besides not scratching an originality itch, I'd be worried that Nintendo would try to crush it if it ever noticed.
It's not that I don't respect it, just that it's not what I want to make. And to some extent, it's that the things you want to parody aren't the things I want to parody.

There are a few parody ideas bouncing around in my head, like a Star Fox harem game. Let's call it Astro Vulpus, starring Renard McThrusty, you would have various pilots in your squadron, like a rabbit-babe, a frog-babe, a falcon-babe and a purple-furred-alien-fox-babe, and depending on your performance in combat stages, you develop relationships with them and you can fuck them back at HQ. I probably wouldn't try to do an actual Star Fox style 3D rail shooter, probably one of my simpler scrolling shooter engines:

Alloy Tengu:
Flixel: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/558532
AS3 Original: http://www.freeworldgroup.com/g/i/blazing-void.htm
Game Maker: http://bluecloak.net/ace/alloytengu2.zip

Ace Invaders: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/536663
Invader Rogue (proof of concept): http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/6ea ... 8fdafeae5c
I made a game called Ion Aces that I uploaded to Yoyogames and GMArcade way back when, if you know where YYG put all the old games, I think it's still there somewhere.


---


As for GameMaker, I used to use it back when it was GM6 and GM7. I have GMStudio, but not the full version anymore. Besides Alloy Tengu and Ion Aces, I did Rune Star http://bluecloak.net/ace/runestar.zip and some of an RPG engine: http://bluecloak.net/ace/TnD.zip I switched from GM to Flash because a year of working on Rune Star resulted in 600 or so views and lukewarm reception. I got more views from Puppy Love and Dildo, which was made in a weekend. And nowadays we've got that lovely "Windows protected you from this program" message. If you could assure me that you have a way around these problems, or that I would get paid anyways, I could be brought back to game maker, it's a lovely program, but right now, Flash is the best.

And then thinking the Star Fox harem game over in my head since I wrote it down here, I would probably want to add animals or body types based on my own preferences, rather than stick to parodies of Star Fox characters. So in the end, an idea that started out as a Star Fox parody turns into something without any Star Fox characters or Star Fox gameplay. And that's a look inside the brain for why I'm not excited about parodies.
