So i have an idea for my first game maker 8 game. Its about a girl and a boy. This time the guy likes the girl, who doesnt reciprocate his love and all thay and he does Ll kinds of random stuff to get her. i have two choices, 1:

Make if a fully voiced game with minimal action but max story
Or
Make it fully voiced but max action but minimal story

Soo i just need some help deciding between those two and then ill start it. Any ideas about the plot will be appreciated :3

So, it's up to you, i think
if you want to make some game with mello dramatic and make player cried after it? should make it fuly voiced and max story
if you want to make it much experience? should make it more action.

it's about, what do you want player fell about your game? :de::lol:

Are you sure you want it to be a platformer? The most popular platform games are those that has a lot of action and player movement in them (see: mario and sonic).

Anyway here's a suggestion: make the girl fall in love with some other guy. Then they will live together. But, the girl will soon realize that the new guy isn't as caring and loving as the main character (the first guy). So, the girl will leave the new guy and return to the main character. However, the main character has done all sorts of crazy things and has put himself in danger (for example: he could be locked in a dungeon full of monster :D). Now, it's the girls job to rescue the main character. At this point, you can make the player control the girl to save the boy. Then she will rescue the boy and they will live happily ever after ...

Yeah, cheesy story, right? Haha! I'm not an expert in writing stories. The idea just popped into my head! :)

Anyway, good luck with you game! :)

go with max action but minimal story... I think very few people actually care about the story...

I wouldn't say people don't care about story.

@Gabbawoke try and find that good area of both action and story. It hard to find that perfect blend but I'm sure you will figure it out.

Exactly. He should try his best at both aspects, as they in fact complement each other (smart story makes action more interesting and vice versa).

An example of this is The Walking Dead game by Telltale Games. Real polished.
