I will be posting my notes as I progress here. Even before I saw the themes I knew I wanted to do an RPG. That is the kind of game I enjoy the most and play the most.
As for the themes, I will actually try to include all 3 of them. I have a long commute to work and thought of a good framework story that incorporates them. I had a chance to write it down and think I now have the high-level plot drafted with some good plot items too.
Unity3d will be my game engine of choice. For the past couple months I've been working on a 2D RPG and plan on reusing some of the scripts. I will be pulling my assets from http://opengameart.org
so I don't have to create anything myself. Actually, I dislike doing art myself. I will use the LPC sprites there for my characters and tilesets. There are also some UI elements and music and SFX that are pretty good too.
I also started listening to S. M. Lockridge sermons, so I will probably be including some of his stuff as dialogue in the game. Overall, I am excited to get this going. Especially, since this will be my first entry into the Speedgame. Since it is my first speedgame, if anyone sees something in my blog that looks like it might be breaking the rules or something please let me know. It is probably because I just don't know.
