Practice based Research Game Project Document. v0.2
By Cheng - Car modification
Through the three game ideas which have generated in Phase 3 and a discussion with Adam on a Friday, I finally decided to create a traditional 2D pixel game that focusing on storytelling and in-game interactions, by RPG maker game engine.
V0.2 - Secondary thinking about the theme. Work in progress
The protagonist in the game is a college boy. His father died in an accident a year ago. He and his mother depend on each other for survival. His father used to be a rally driver, so the protagonist knows a huge amount of knowledge of cars at when he was young. Since one day he was provoked by several bad students that bullied him, he planned to take his car and refit it. To win the prize of a race at the end of the year and work hard to realize his father's lifelong aspirations became his dream. But the cost of modifying the car was so high that he even couldn't afford a decent backup tire. His mother advised him to study hard and give up to spend money on the car. However, he decided to spend his spare time doing part-time jobs.
On the basis of this story, I have many new ideas. It may change the direction of the whole story, but it will make the story more interesting and exciting. That's what I've always wanted to achieve. Since a pixel game can not have a gorgeous and beautiful visual performance, let the story become one of the most important and eye-catching elements of the game !
It all started with the biggest championship in the country. The protagonist had a family with happiness and his father was a racing driver. winning the championship, and then declaring declaring his retirement and focused on the family. It was his father's dream for many years. However, his father was involved in a conspiracy before the championship.
From then on, his father went home very late usually, until one morning when the protagonist saw him haggard out of the house and never came back from that day. Even though her mother kept asking around with neighbors and police, she still got nothing.
Then one night, on the way home from a part-time job, the protagonist brushed past a man who looks very similar to his father. Then the man dropped an ID card. Surprisingly, the protagonist found that the man is his father who had been missing for several years. He follows that man quietly without any hesitation. In a small alley, he found that his father was trading with a man who covers the face with a mask, and that what he’s trading was some kind of illegal drugs, definitely prohibited in the country. He dismissed the idea of asking what was has happened on him in these years, because he realized that it is a very risky to do.
The protagonist was unwilling to study because he hoped that his father would return home soon. He dropped out of college then transferred to a police training school to study. One year after the protagonist graduated, he was sent by the local police station to investigate their actions as an undercover member of a well-known local criminal organization. At this time, the protagonist found that his father seems to be closely related to the notorious criminal organization.
Before that, his mother refused to let him take the risk of going to police school because he was afraid of losing his only son again. But his strong will compelled her to agree to his request. In order not to impose any unnecessary financial burden on his mother, he joined part-time jobs in the shops and restaurants to earn living expenses. Of course, there are some savings to buy automobile parts in the future.
Soon, during a mission to transport contraband, he was locked up by special police officers and chased him in an attempt to intercept the contraband. But with the driving experience his father taught him many years ago, the protagonist managed to escape the chase and save the van. Also saved an informant of the criminal organization who was sitting in the co-driver's seat. Then he received his first cash award and an old car in rich of refitting potential.
Since then, he has been ordered many times by the leaders of the criminal organization to participate in racings held in many places. After each victory, part of the prize will be handed over to the organization, while the rest will be used as budgets for adjusting and purchasing car modification parts. Once in a masquerade party, he talked to a member of the organization then He found out that the man was his father who had left from home for many years. And he heard the reason why his father left home from that day. However, this is mot means the reunion, because the organization had restricted his father's personal freedom. The only thing that could be done was to get confidential information about the criminal organization from his father at regular intervals. If the information is reported to the local police station, the protagonist will receive a considerable reward each time.
In this way, three years later, he has become a little famous racing driver all over the country, many car-racing teams and sponsors wanted to co-operate with him. But he resolutely refused these requests, because he never forget the original intention. As a police undercover, he still has important missions to complete. Finally, he succeeded in winning an invitation to the biggest racing championship in the country, a grand gathering of well-known teams and racing drivers from all regions. This meant that he was about to stand on the stage of his father's dream and prepare to fulfill the dream all for his father. At this time, the protagonist couldn't resist the joy in his heart and contacted his father again. His father told him that the master of the organization would attend the event and that he was one of the important sponsors of it.
Unfortunately, his father was found to have leaked information, he was subjected to inhumane imprisonment and torture. A week later, The protagonist won the championship. However, he did not appear at the awards ceremony, which meant abandoning the $10 million award. At this moment, he led the special police to successfully capture the master of the organization in a basement, and also captured several other members who are involved in money laundering activities. With the success of the operation, the criminal organization finally collapsed. The police followed trace then rescued the protagonist's father from a farm near the city, he was covered with injuries. Fortunately, after rescue, he succeeded in saving his life.
Finally, the protagonist decided to quit the racing world. The car, full of honors and various modifications, was bought by a collector from an auction house for $10 million. The protagonist continues his duties as an agent. Fighting crime and devoting himself to justice. Of course, the family finally is reunited. So the end of the story is coming. He later said in a media interview: "My father's experience has deprived me of a time that should have been happy. Drug and criminal organizations are exactly stumbling blocks on the road of human development, and they should not exist in the world. I am not a hero, just a partner of justice. I have no lofty ideals. It is not my duty to save the world. All I can do is to protect the people around me.
I hope that I can enhance my ability of developing games through this project. Actually, the number of RPG games I have been contacted so far is much larger than the current field, so I want to improve my adaptability to working in different fields through this project. On the other hand, this type of game may require a lot of programming scripts to realise some functions or AI creations. I will try to learn coding and complete an excellent project within my capacity.
If the final version is completed, it will be released on online platforms such as Steam. On the other hand, it will be part of my portfolio, which will be very helpful for future job hunting.
