Great Game Combos - *SPOILERS*


#21

Have to agree with redsoul about the real life series thing. For some odd reason I decided to make final fantasy(odd I know) and when done right it goes pretty well. Though I really should look up the real genre and such of that one and it would do splendidly. But it did seem to do pretty well as adventure and rpg so maybe if I could do a combo genre it would do even better. I even named on pokemon doing that as fantasy/rpg and I think that one did pretty well(though would of done better with a young audience).

Though don’t know if someone posted this. But I’ve done well using it’s tips for combinations in combination with this which is from another topic in this forum. I can get to real office using it(though I try to wait until I have 3m before I move).

Though looking at my game history with some of the ones i mentioned this is the result:
1.) Final Fantasy on pc as a adventure for everyone was rated 9 cost 59k to make and produced 2m(though somehow and don’t know how it happened but i somehow made it on the gameling same topic but action and young and only produced 1/4th of the revenue) I released the one I started this point with on y5 m6 w2.
2.) Oddly enough though a game produced right after it did really well: Kids sports party y5 m11 w2 rated 9.75 produced 2.9m. It was on the pc and for young audience

See if these work for you guys. But I will admit, these combinations if the sliders are done right do amazingly well especially if you keep your engine up to date. As well as really train and know when to give employees breaks. As well keep with the movements and don’t sue the heck out of fans and don’t fall for obvious scams like the propositions XD That seems to be when I do the best in this game. I think I might even try some of these again soon listed in this topic

Thank you! That advice actually has helped me a lot. I actually read the wiki after I posted my response, and thought about the Adventure genre closely fitting to visual novels. xD (I’m a writer and stuff, so visual novels and things are right up my alley. I love playing them and would like to make them myself. >>)


#23

No problem! The wiki is by far the best source for looking up good combos, just don’t focus on it too much or you’ll end up feeling restricted in what you should create as opposed to what you want to create. I’m going through multiple times following different dev routes i.e. major open world rpgs like Bethesda, or becoming a branch of Nivendo’s exclusive only IP devs, or even go as money hungry huge as possible through AAAs and yearly products ala EA, but visual novels never even occured to me until now.

Surprising enough, When i made TES : Skyrim, a medieval RPG-Adventure, i got a perfect 10. Funny coincidence :smile:


#26

Did you had a 9+ before that and are you sure you have set your sliders right?

This is only a Expansion , i dont know if this works as a own game from start :blush:


#28

My successes came primarily with different topics in the RPG and Simulation realms.
I got to a point without changing sliders much I could pump out a Sports sim, a couple more, then a few rpgs and be golden.
:slight_smile:
