Title: Coming..ehm.. let's say soon
Post by Veronika on 04.11.2009 at 01:50:48
My next mansion Veronika's Towers. It's about 200 rooms.
Now I need your opinion guys and girls.  ;)

This mansion is build in a way that you have to go through many different towers. In each one you get two special keys- one lets you into the next tower and the other -multicolor ones-  you'll need to enter the last rooms of the mansion.
Now, I know that multicolor keys are very tricky because you can unintentionally open the wrong door with it- but I can't help it- I just love these colored suckers ;D

I've put many signs throughout the mansion, warning Jack to be careful with keys and also there are plenty backpacks so Jack can carry all those keys.
But do you think it will happen a lot, players using wrong keys and therefore be frustrated about it?
I like this mansion a lot, but If a majority of you think that thinking about keys all the time is too much hassle then what's the point of this kind of mansion... :(

I've made it quite easy to go back ( special doors at the bottom of each tower ) and enough save portals but still... I wonder.
I don't want to use 'normal' keys for the last part of the mansion because those multicolored keys represent kind of reward in each tower and I like this concept. ::)

So let me know what you think.

Why not wait and see if the beta testers find a problem with it?

I too love them coloured suckers!  lolololol  And since there are plenty of save points, I think that a little bit of a puzzle strategy is just fine.  But then again......that's only my opinion.

btw:  You have a real flare for style & design.  Looking forward to your new mansion.   [smiley=beer.gif]

I agree with Missy - this is for the beta testers to find out.  I hope you'll find some key experts out there  ;)

But you gotta keep in mind that it's not the player who decides what key Jack is using but Jack, ahem...I mean..the game.
You can't influence it....and the backpacks or whatnot have no influence whatsoever on that decision.

But I also think - just try it out.
If you keep a close watch on what other color doors you use, and when exactly you'll hand out the same-colored keys for them you should be able to pull it off.

And BTW..... several backpacks do not further expand Jack's "storing room". Only the first backpack does that, just once. The other backpacks just equal money (I guess it was 500 bucks).

I wish you all the best for the design.  Judging from the last section of La Luna you get better by the day....   :)

Designing is hard work ;D so I work hard to get better and better and I'm happy If you guys and girls notice this ::)

Ok, jokes aside: I will of course wait for the final word from beta testers. VT is not quite ready for that , yet, but I think I was pretty careful to always leave enough room for Jack to see which door is next so he won't get confused about keys.

Thanx for the input and hopefully Veronika's Towers will frustrate...well I want to say nobody but that's to optimistic... so I'll rephrase it: will frustrate the lowest amount of people possible  :P

Have a great morning/day/evening everybody.

My vote, for what it's worth, is to leave the multi-colored keys. It's pretty easy to notice the color of a door and look to see if you have the key.

Looking forward to VT.

I say keep the colored keys. My Jack can be SO impulsive, maybe this will teach him to think before jumping  ;D

I say keep the multi-colored keys, also. Looking forward to your new mansion.

I agree about the colored keys - you made that clear in La Luna.

Hope you need beta-testers!
