I recently joined this community and have started with FEGBA Builder, writing on supports and stuff for another upcoming hack. However, I have an idea I’d like to flesh out and make that I probably can’t do alone, so I wanted to see if anyone out there would be down to help me design it and do spritework/map overhauls. The pitch is The Infinity Gauntlet.
(Please bear with me this post is unfinished and I accidentally posted it)
The Infinity Gauntlet takes story elements and essentially everything from the recent Marvel installations Infinity War and Endgame AND the original comic they were based on, The Infinity Gauntlet. Essentially, many assets would have to be overhauled and programmed in such as magic being sorcery or bows being webs or guns or even bows themselves and adding new weapons and programming them. I also have an idea for a new weapon, Gauntlet, that can do physical or magical damage based on what type of stone is equipped, so for instance, the Mind Stone would do magical damage like the Thunder blade. The first 10 chapters would be an introduction to the characters and features, the next 5 would be the ending events of Infinity War, and the last 10 to 15 chapters would be Endgame depending on how it goes.
I’m hoping that the new features and such would be a draw. The Jagen unit, Dr. Strange would be equipped with the Time Stone, an alternative for Mila’s Turnwheel which would have 15 uses until breaking along with powerful magic attacks.
The idea of the Gauntlet being the stones and such would also mean that the protagonist would be able to wield them eventually. Obviously there would be a limit to the amount of MCU and comic characters that could be included, but I also believe that certain other functions might make it worth investing in. Kirb had script for Mila’s Turnwheel for gba and might let me use it, so I could already potentially have that part.
There would also be new classes like Titan which wields Swords and Gauntlets (The Infinity Stone weapon class.) The transformer class would be The Hulk who uses anger as his beaststone like thing to transform into Hulk. Agents like Hawkeye and Black Widow would be agent classss which would wield guns which would be a reskinned bow, with some tweaks and close range access.
Mages would be changed to sorcerers, ie Wong, and the Sorcerer Supreme, the promote, would be Dr. Strange, who can use stones and magic and staves, the magic of which would obviously be redesigned to look more like his magic. Spiderman would have a special Spidey class which would be a supporter class with attack ability. He would use webs that vary between attacks and debuffs. Iron Man, War Machine, Hulk Buster, and Spider’s promotion Iron Spider would be Iron Suit, which allows the use of a reskinned magic, Lasers, and would be a flyer. Spidey’s would be altered to have webs installed too.
One more update: the biggest thing would probably be spriting and adding extra weapons which I think has been done before. I’m trying to get together a few prototype maps now but I have no skill with spriting or anything yet so it’s just gonna be with normal sacred stones assets.
