Chao Resort Island! (Fan-Game)

Postby Nefault1st » Sun Feb 12, 2017 4:26 am

Chao Resort Island is a 2.5D Chao raising game which is created as both an extension of an existing sonic fan game and a standalone for PC!
The game takes place on a small island which hosts 3 separate resorts for you to raise your Chao in. Most of the features included in the game will be features from the Chao World in SA2B.

Standard Features:
  • Playable Characters - raise your Chao as either Sonic or *Shadow
  • Egg Colors - purchase 13+ different egg colors
  • Multiple Fruits - feed your Chao different fruits to raise multiple stats
  • Toys and Interactive Objects - let your chao interact with different items to increase its intelligence level
  • Chao Alignments - Neutral, Hero, and Dark
  • Chao Abilities - from swimming, to flying, to running
  • Chaos Drives - boost your Chao's individual stats
  • 24 Chao limit - raise up to 8 Chao per resort

Special Features:
  • Time and Season change - set based on your computer's clock and calendar (+adjustable)
  • Hats and Accessories - dress your Chao to help them stand out from the rest
  • *Chao Mini-games - test your Chao's skills through resort activities that correspond to each stat
  • Online Updates - get updates without having to manually download them

(*)These features are still in the planning phase.

As stated earlier, my plans are to include most features from the Chao World, so I won't be able to include everything!
I plan to release this game soon, so I'd like to keep it reasonably small..
I will be posting updates here regularly. If you have any suggestions or feedback, I'd love to hear it! :sway:

This looks incredibly impressive. What else do you plan on adding to the game before the official release?

If the actual Resort Island isn't a part of this I will be extremely bothered by your name choice.

That aside, this looks extremely good, or to be closer to the source material, Image

Glad you guys like it! For now this is all I have planned before release. Since I will be able to include updates via online, I can include extra features in the future while still developing my main game. This way I can assure you the game will get done and won't suffer the same fate as most of the fan-games.

Haha thanks! With what I have planned for the other areas, I don't think you'll be disappointed xD

Sorry for the lack of updates! I recently moved and I don't have internet setup yet.
I've managed to get a lot done in the past few weeks, so I'll attempt to periodically post everything I've done during that time.

Here's one for today:

Chao are now able to wear hats and accessories! Like food and other items, they can be bought from the shop.

Some of them will also be available in different colors:

Different colored hats and accessories will be available via prizes from the mini-games!

This looks very well done! I can't wait until it's released :chaohappy:

There should be a chao storage system IMO, that way you can have as many chao as you want, just not all at once.

Also, here's a few suggestions:

  • Dark Chao sleep in the day and wake up at night by default, and vice versa for Hero/Neutral Chao.
  • Normal plants grow in the day and grow slower in the night, vice versa for Dark plants.
  • Chaos Drive animation should be shorter and have some sparkle particle effects when finished.
  • A way to get character chao. Maybe through mini games, races, etc, or through reincarnation(Example: Power-Fly-Red Chao that is wearing a Red Chao egg shell turns into a knuckles chao when it reincarnates)
  • Maybe have Special chao as a reward for winning races? Maybe against others online? Maybe as events? Special chao act like regular chao, they just look cool.

Those are just a few off the top of my head. :blink:

Hey thanks! I like your chao storage idea, maybe if this becomes big enough I'll consider creating one!
As for your other suggestions:
- That doesn't sound like a bad idea! Since it's system time based, I'll probably need to limit the amount of chao that sleep during those times, since you're likely there to play with them.
- Plant growth won't exist, but I'll see if I can do something similar with the resort fruit.
- Special Fx are definitely being considered for that and much more. Once the sfx are done for the drive intake, I'll adjust the animation length.
- Character chao will likely be given out as either contest prizes, in-game prizes, or extension DLC rather than via formulas. The amount of coding it took to get everything to this point is astounding and I'd like to avoid extending production time to create these things.
- Previous point, however I have created a luck-based chao that will come out of a normal egg all white and sparkly. The chance is pretty slim, kinda like shiny pokemon. Hope that sounds interesting!

Thanks for the suggestions!

A (few) quick questions, what is this game coded in and are you currently accepting help? :thinking:

I'm using Game Maker 8 to program this. I am actually looking for additional sprite artists that would like to help with creating more hats and accessories for the chao to wear. It'd be great to have someone who's into 3D modeling and texturing. As you can probably tell, I'm pretty fresh at that. :chaocry:

I could help with that :wink:

I'm also into spriting, but I don't have any examples at the moment

That's cool! You seem more than capable of handling basic shapes.
And no problem, just send me a pm and we can discuss the modeling and sprites further!

It looks very neat, like a fleshed out version of the TCG from Sonic Advance. Very excited to see some more progress when you get there!
