I am from Telangana.
I am amazed to see another Indian on this forum. I have never seen any Indian talking about any of the Grey Dog Software Games.

@Flame Snoopy Can we suggest any changes to any skill levels of any person with backing it up not just shouting it?

Sorry for the wait on this; had a few really busy weeks. "The Duke of Oakland" should be online later this week, and hopefully it's worth the wait!

Sounds like a pretty good game opening idea, Comic Fighter. Kind of reminds me of one of the suspense flicks you'd see on Lifetime except for the male leads. Also strikes me as a spiritual prequel to my flick, Green Eyed Monster, from the last game.

The big thing I'd say to help you out with your story is I hope you have your story beats figured out already. Since you read through the last three runs of the game, I'm sure you've noticed there are always folks who start out to play and then fall by the wayside. The most common mistake those folks make is to post their proposal as soon as they have their pre-casting done. Only for the writing to overwhelm them because they have to chart the story's course and write it all in one big gulp.

Speaking as someone who forgot the villain's evil scheme after a busy couple of weeks, I totally second this post. I have my movie half written and I forgot where I was going and need to go back to it.

I have found that my biggest obstacle to starting this game is I have more of the big bang ideas like action films, fantasy films and so on and much less for things like drama and such. That and you can't get into the big bang ideas unless you do well with your budget-friendly ideas. Budget is certainly a beyotch.

I can see that too. Budget is one place where I see my lack of knowledge of today's A listers to actually be an advantage for me. Since I don't know my Cooper Bradleys from my Jay Laws, hiring stars I know something about and can relate to comes without the price tag that genres in your comfort zone would. I think that's also why you were seeing Russel do animated films like Madeline and Greenwater Amusements before he got banned. With voice actors, even top level talent like Tom Kenny and Tara Strong will come much cheaper than live action A listers. After all, it ultimately doesn't matter who played ParaNorman, who voiced Elsa in Frozen, or who did Riley and her emotions in Inside Out. As long as kids love the characters, the film will work.

I can definitely agree that A-listers cost a boatload of money in real life. This game actually keeps that in check and is more "producer friendly" than hollywood simulation video game where an actual A-lister can cost like 20-30M to hire. My issue with budget is that all the things in my brain kinda takes a lot of budget to make. I am sure one can make budget movies with every genre, like The Raid: Redemption vs Fast & Furious, but my imagination tends to lean toward the F&F side on most parts.

Also, good point on animation films. I guess real life Hollywood doesn't really need to hire their A-listers to voice the characters anyway. Kids aren't going to check behind the curtain, that's for sure.

Another good reason to do animation if your story themes aren't too mature. It costs a lot less to draw stuff blowing up on a computer than it does to blow real stuff up. Not to mention that all your characters will happily do their own stunts. Your cast needn't care. They just have to give the characters a voice.

However, things take a turn for the worst when the party goers and the host are revealed to be violent, bloodthirsty mutants who stalk the five party crashers, hell bent on but satisfying themselves with guts and gore.
› Rating: : Rated R for intense strong violence/gore, sexuality/nudity, drug use, and pervasive language - all involving teens.
› Production Cost: Have yet to calculate
› Marketing Cost: "


TALENT CASTING
› Director: Thinking of who can tackle a project like this and succesfully take it in the direction we want them to... Offer to Adam Wingard

I'm sorry, dude. That dog won't hunt. If you do that, how are you going to be able to do your budgeting? You can't figure production and marketing budgets if you don't know what your talent costs are. Not to mention, can you really be sure these people will be interested in doing a horror movie or settling for the size of role you're offering. You gotta play the game as it's designed. You never know what curveballs may pop up in negotiation.

Please, read the rules man...

1. You don't need a permission to enter the Negotiation Phase...
2. As the Gamemaster FlameSnoopy handles negotiations, just look a couple of pages in the past.
3. Since you already offered the roles to actors, all you have to do is to wait for FlameSnoopy.

While we wait for it to continue or restart, if anybody is interested, they can join a similar game.

To not look like a jerk I have not posted link to it in the thread. If anybody is interested I will message them with Link.
