Raider - The Adventures of Arkus Zei

Originally, Raider was supposed to consist of five Episodes, which told a story between them. However, the first two weren't nearly as successful as I hoped, and it's embarrassing to even think of releasing another three knowing that the others 'failed'.
So what I plan to do instead is just have one game consisting of the original story in its five parts, but with completely redesigned maps. The levels will hopefully be easier and more 'fun' and Arkus will be able to move in more interesting ways.
Rather than just having five huge levels, there will be five 'zones', each with several short, easier levels each. This will make the game more manageable, I think, and more fun too.
You'll also be able to travel around a sort of 'world map' between the worlds; you'd fly around in Arkus' ship exploring sectors of space and finding loot or optional levels; it'd be sort of like the sea in Zelda:Wind Waker.
I'll work on this after MARDEK 3 is released.
(I've yet to finalise a title. Ideas like 'Raider - Complete', 'Raider - Saga', 'Raider Adventures', and 'Raider: The Adventures of Arkus Zei' come to mind...)

So, for the two of you at the top, Psuedo has previously been asked if he wants or needs help. He DOES NOT! I believe he even has it on his FAQ section of the site. He would feel that your concept and his wouldn't match, and that the game would no longer be what he wants it to be. Because of this, he might actually spend MORE time antagonizing over what you're doing, and how it fits in with his grand scheme. As GameZone said, Psuedo is has a ton of games organized at once. This adds pressure, and makes him worry that somehow he's disappointing us fans. In addition to this, he has his agoraphobia and immense lack of a social life( As I believe he's said, I apologize if I'm mistaken). His lack of social skills would also make working with others and incredible ordeal, having to make sure that your quality is high enough, having to communicate with you on a daily basis, likely feeling inferior for working with someone younger than him on the same level (Let's see, when was his minor breakdown on having no real friends, and only really interacting with children?) So please, don't talk about him needing help, it isn't in his personality to want help, and when your sitting here complaining about the release time of his games, he's sitting at home getting depressed over disappointing fans or failing to live up to expectations.

he acctually needs Help if he does not try to get SOMEONE just someone who can take some of the pressure off of his back then he will be able to finish games quite Quickly. i doubt they would suck because all of his games are fun to play :)

Well it is 2012 and you still haven't even started on it. I think it is time to throw this attempt into the abandoned area.

He will work on it eventually. Just be patient. Just because it's 2012 and he hasn't started on it at all, that does NOT mean he won't work on it. Have some faith in the guy. It's only one guy making these games. You can't expect someone to make 10 games at once.

Aren't you adjudicating a bit to early ? There is plenty of time left. I don't think A β Pseudolonewolf will disappoint us if he has planned it.
