Exclamation Zelda Online Game

(Not sure what category this goes under but this seems to be the closest)

I think that Four-Swords is OK. However I think it would be better if it was a game that was played over the internet.

I am thinking of making a Zelda Game that:
-Has a Zelda Engine (Not a cheap point-click or maze game)
-Is Online (WAN and LAN)
-Is Server and client style
-Has the Link to the Past Graphics
-Has New Dungeons
-Has New Puzzles
-Has Built-in Chat
-Is for Windows 95,98,ME,XP,Vista

What does everyone think?
(I want to do this, however only if there is a demand for it.)

If everyone thinks it is a good idea, I will need help with:
-Story Line
-Beta Testing

Please tell me what you think.

Re: Zelda Online Game

This sounds awesome! I always wanted to play multiplayer zelda online (I became a fan too late to hop on the FS/FSA boat).

Re: Zelda Online Game

It sounds like you have the same ambitions as a lot of people and that it will end 25% of the way through.

And this should be under advertising.

Re: Zelda Online Game

Do you plan on using a pre-existing engine?

As for the remaining portions, you will need people who are able to code, script, map, host the game, debug, and properly moderate the game once it is released. If you have any questions, just ask.

Re: Zelda Online Game

I will be the one that codes, scripts, maps and debugs.

The Games will be privately hosted.

Sorry Cukeman, I program in GML which compiles only to Windows

Re: Zelda Online Game

I'll beta test and help with the story like Erikson said.

It's not compatible with mac but will it be compatible with Windows 2000? That's what I'm currently using. although I'll get a new computer, hopefully, soon so this might not be a problem.

Re: Zelda Online Game

I'm interested. But lazy, like a lot of people who previously posted. I'll beta test, and help with the story.

I also have a suggestion for the multiple Link's issue, unless you already solved that yourself.

How about if the online game had 4 people from around the world, (the selection is random, unless you request to play with friends from a friends list or something), in the style of Four Swords? Instead of one world where 50,000+ Link's run around, each "group" of four people get there own "world", or a private level of their own, to complete. Obviously, this would mean it isn't an exploring overworld, but like something similar to FSA's level system.

EDIT: Or to save space or increase online play, you can change the number of Links per group. Maybe 6-8 Links instead of 4?

Re: Zelda Online Game

Interesting.... But, as some people have already asked.... Are there gonna be a million Links running around, or do you create a custom person, or do the Links get their own world to travel in... What?

Re: Zelda Online Game

It won't be an MMORPG like WOW.
It will be more than one server, meaning groups of players.

Making sprites and their animations can be just as much of a pain. I'd say you need at least a few people to help you out.. unless you're planning to release this thing in 10 years.
