I dont know why but i just cant run with an idea anymore :/ Like, over the past couple years i've had ideas for games that i really want to make and do loads of excited scribbles but when it comes time to actually get making it i just lose all my steam. I think it's cause i always want to make something better than nevermore but if i wanted to make it better i'd probably have to use something more powerful than flash, and the obvious answer is unity or unreal, but I just can't get my head around it! Maybe i should just jump in and play and really invest some time into a new program rather than sitting here worrying about it and doing nothing. Heh, that was kinda a cathartic ramble i just had there. I guess i should just get on with it then :D

AAAAaaanyway, this is a photoshop painted version of a doodle i did for a scene in one of those aforementioned games :D this one i got super excited about and i'll make if i ever manage to pull my finger out. It'll have trains and ghosts and weird towns in it C:

I think you should create a spiritual successor to Nevermore. Different character and different story, but set in the Nevermore world, and same art style (But better, like you said).

In my opinion, Nevermore had so much charm that it would be a waste not to further explore that theme, and that world that is overflowing with character.

Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, that's something I've been meaning to do for a while now, maybe in 3D, so long as i can keep that painty style somehow

I'm sure you could pull it off well. :)
But TBH, I think you've got the art style down. Why fix something that's not broken.
If I were you, I might focus on changing/adding gameplay elements to keep it fresh.

Whatever you end up doing, I'll play it, that's for sure.

Forget about nevermore. What game would you make to do now if nevermore never existed?

hmmmm, well, something about running away from monsters maybe :) BIG monsters on one of those little handcart trains. It would be nice to work on something that isn't strictly an adventure game.

Whoa, I don't know how "like to make" turned into "make to do" in that comment of mine. for the lulz!

Big monsters on tiny handcart trains sounds great. You should do it really!
