Title: What would you most look forward to in a 2D independently developed game?

Sidescrolling platformer? Overhead fantasy? Combination of the two? What is your ideal 2D game? I'm kinda curious as to what kinds of "old school" games our members might be interested in.

Still a fan of the classic RPG genre like Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, etc., including ones that are set in modern times like Earthbound and Sci-Fi like Phantasy Star. I do still pick up the occasional 2D platformer though like the Mega Man series which I feel does 2D platforming better than Mario.

I'd also like to see a really good Zelda/Brain Lord/Soul Blazer type clone someday too. A good overhead adventure with a good narrative, RPG elements, secrets to find, and puzzles to solve would be a lot of fun too.

This is off-topic, GW but check out Tunic. I know it's coming for PC and I think it was XBox for console. It seems interestingly Zelda like. I'll take your input into consideration, as it's given me a spark of an idea

It's hard to say what would work in a 2D indie game that we haven't seen before. I would certainly like to see someone doing something interesting with overhead fantasy. Nothing specific comes to mind though.

Amusingly enough, I'm working on an idea like that. However, I don't feel like it has enough substance to it. Still trying to work that out before I get anything coded. Plus graphics are a pain to get without moneys. :o
