Art of the Dress | Puzzle Game

Remember when I said, that the "Art of the Dress" event with @Rarity and all the amazing dresses members have drawn filled me with inspiration?

I mentioned a puzzle game (click my reply above for more information) and I kept thinking about it.

Soooo... I couldn't resist! I've drawn a concept art showing how more or less it could look like. :P

Disclaimer: Carousel Boutique background, all the gems, elements of harmony, spool of rainbow thread and the Rainbow's dress sketch weren't made by me. I've made hourglass, menu scroll, cursor and the rest.

Now the general idea is, that Rarity would be sewing a different dress for each level. The first levels would take place in Ponyville, where Rarity would make the dresses for the Gala, nothing fancy.
There would be some cutscenes and some other basic stuff.
With progress, she'd be moving to different places, where dresses would follow different styles.

Levels 2-X would take place in Manehattan.
Levels 3-X would take place in the Crystal Empire.
Levels 4-X would take place in Canterlot. Busy and demanding ponies - fits great for more difficult levels, that require more work in less amount of time. Rarity's Boutique would be such a great location.

(and perhaps more...)


Now talking about some inspiration from that thread and event altogether--- I'd like to mention something, that gave me that one more sparkle. :squee:

I haven't seen many -- actually I don't really recall seeing any dresses inspired by the Crystal Empire. I have to say, that @bornAgainEquestrian's dress is absolutely great. :pinkie:

As for the game itself - there would be some bonuses, that would impact the field by destroying things here and there; there would be upgrades to these to give that feeling of progress/improvement.

Also, this time I'd totally go for Full HD resolution as the default one! :D As much as I love pixel art, I think this one would perform better with high-resolution smooth art. :P 

 

If I'd knew about that event sooner, perhaps (with a huuuge question mark) I'd attempt to create that game, or at least come up with a demo for that event, like it was with Twilight's day. The huuuuuge question mark is because I suspect that game would take way longer to program, so I'd probably need a lot of time. :mlp_please:

These events made me think of a possible idea of making a game/minigame for each pony from the mane six and I happen to have some more ideas already, but I won't reveal these yet! ;)

Oh I wish I wouldn't have to be bothered by my job - There are so many exciting things to do! :D 

Either way, that's all for now;
Thank you for visiting! :)

Maybe one day these minigames could go alongside your big project? :P "Minigames Section," or something like that.

I want to see your big pony projects to prosper. Hopefully it doesn't get to a point where Hasbro ceases and desists you.

So very cool! And after thinking about it, I can't believe this hasn't been officially been done before. Rarity gem hunting just makes way too much sense for the genre.

You got it right! That's actually something I have in plans. ;) Not even just a minigame section, but I plan to put these in specific places and connect them with some other things, to give in-game rewards etc. etc.. ^_^

Me too. I really can't wait to finally come up with something good. Hopefully I'll get there someday. :kindness: Yeah, that would be disappointing for me. I mean, it is understandable and from some point of view it would be an honor, because that would mean, that my works are 'too good' to exist. :D  But it would be disappointing, that my lovely projects would be wrecked. MLP is what brought me to game development after all. :sunny: Though again, from the other side perhaps it would be a good time to finally start working on something, that could have a future - something original... :derp:

Either way, thank you. :)

I know, right? MLP has soooooooooooooooooo many opportunities for decent games, yet Hasbro and working with them companies seem to miss these and come up with silly, greedy games instead. It makes me sad, that MLP lacks of proper games, that we all could talk about. So far only that Gameloft's game seems to be well-known, but it's cheaply made, not mentioning all the toxics included in there. It's not a bad game, just poorly designed. What a pity. >_>

Thank you very much! :)

Ooh, so that part in Bookhorse with Rainbow Dash flying everywhere had lore. Will we know why she looks so mad at those books? :D

That is one major reason why I stopped my pony art and projects. In the end I didn't feel comfortable stepping on anyone's toes so all my concepts were left just as that concepts.

I made deal with myself that from that point onward I would create and focus mainly on original concepts and ideas everything from the ground up.

 

On another note the concept and game looks pretty good :)
