I've decided that since I have absolutely no experience whatsoever playing RPGs, that I am not a good candidate of programming one, so instead, I'm going to work on a fighting game (while I also have no experience playing a fighting game, I'd figure it'd be a lot easier programming one than an RPG.) So here's my latest brainchild: Insect Combat. Right now, it's just a warning screen and a title screen. The only two characters I've thought of so far are Gi-Ant and Behe-Moth. Any other punny names you guys can think of would also be appreciated.

Since stag beetles are insects that are actually pitted against each other in fights, I think you should include one in your character line-up. Sadly, I don't have any clever names for you.

Looks interesting. Any particular reason you chose insects?

No, not really. It just seemed like a funny thing to me to see various insects fighting it out. The two punny names I thought up of weighed heavily on the decision.

I think this is an interesting game concept and I can't wait to see what you make of it (but being an entomologist - my interest is somewhat skewed). I wish I had some programing experience so I could offer help. If this idea amounts to anything, it might be the homebrew title that finally pushes me to order a flashboy. (Not that Blox & Blox2 aren't fantastic games)

An entomologist, eh? You would have had a field day with my old house - it was filled with ants in the summertime. Well, anyway, I thought of a third fighter: Rumblebee. And if anyone wants to take a crack at designing the head shots on the choose fighter screen, be my guest, as this is what I have so far:

Here's the latest version. Notice that you can choose your opponent as well. Also notice that your opponent cannot be the same as your fighter. This is as far as you can go, though, if you press start after choosing your opponent, the game starts over. Just four more punny names left to think up.

Maybe the title and character screen could use some 3D effects? Like this:

Changed the look of the title screen. I also am limiting the number of characters to 6, unless there are any objections, in which case, I will up it back to 8.
