Cosmoids TD - A reintroduction

Hi all!

Happy 2019! The last 5 months have been a blur! Having a baby is serious business and takes a lot of time. But we love our baby Caleb and wouldn't change anything for the world.

It's been so long that I wanted to start fresh. I wanted to reintroduce myself. So..

Hi, my name is Samuel Otero and I'm a game developer by night, by day I'm a Software Developer, Husband, Father, Friend, Brother, Son.. everything.. and once upon a time I made a game called Pokemon Tower Defense, which you might have heard of.. (okay it's the real reason why you are here, who are we kidding!) and a lot of things happened and now we are here and I'm making a game called Cosmoids TD.

Very similarly to Pokemon Tower Defense (PTD), Cosmoids TD is a Tower Defense Game with Creature Collecting elements mixed in, let's just called it a Creature Collecting Tower Defense. In this game you play as the Wishmaker.
The Wishmaker!

The Wishmaker is the prince of the Makers, an immortal race that create and oversee galaxies across the universe. He is the creator of the Cosmoids, which are a group of creatures that live in the planet Eden. Unlike Pokemon, Cosmoids can all speak the common language and some wear clothes and use tools and weapons.

Chamleaf, a Nature Type Cosmoids
 Planet Eden is in danger and the Wishmaker is weakened, so he must recruit the Cosmoids to help save the planet.

On a mission

Some trouble nearby?!

Like in PTD you will be able to recruit enemy Cosmoids into your party. You can level up your party and they learn new moves and even evolve!

But I really cannot do this without all of you, I want to make a game that we can all enjoy and have fun playing just like PTD. This time it's harder because everything is being made from scratch, while we can be inspired by Pokemon we cannot copy Pokemon. And so I want to make this game openly in front of all of you, so we can go on this journey together. I would love to hear your feedback about what you would like this game to have. I will post really early and buggy version of the game so you can play while it's still being made. In fact here is a screenshot of the current work in progress.

Work In Progress Level, with Fire Hyena and Stick figures guys..
So what do you say, are you in?

As always, let me know what you think!

  2. So it's a Digimon type situation then, with all of the creatures speaking the same language? That should help make story progression easier, and should make it easier to avoid situations such as in Pokemon where "*Repeats name multiple times* "Whats' that, buddy? The legendary Pokemon has begun to attack a nearby city and I somehow understand it when you tell me this?"", so it's probably a pretty good idea on your part. Good luck with the babies, both virtual and real.

    1. Haha! Yeah exactly, it made sense that if it was going to be only a few characters in this planet that he would be able to communicate clearly.

    Awesome, glad to see an update. How often will you be doing update about this game? Every half year like now? Or more frequently?
    Though, it is understandable that it might fluctuate, considering your busy daily live with a baby and job ;)

  10. I looked at this Feb 2 and saw nothing new, so I read all of the comments on the last post. Then I look back 2 weeks later and I see that I MISSED THE NEW POST BY 2 DAYS!!! (")> Congratulations Sam on the new baby! I had a question about the cosmoids universe: Are all the cosmoids confined to one planet or are there other planets for the player to explore and find new cosmoids on?
    Your doing great Sam! Keep up the good work!

    1. space idea is epic
      but i think we should start with 1 for now XD

    2. each planet could be a new region like in pokemon and certain new and old cosmoids can be found there to go to each planet you have to beat the chaos general of the planet before and on the final one (equivalent of alola) you must beat the overlord in order to beat the gaaaame

      Delete
    3. I really like the different planets idea! It makes sense! This game will probably focus on one, it really depends on the budget.

  19. This sounds like so much fun! I'm assuming there will be other Cosmoids, right? I also think that being able to switch outfits (like in X/Y, SuMo/USUM, etc) would be pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes there will be other Cosmoids, the exact amount will depend on time/budget, also we do plan on having different outfits, even for the cosmoids!

  20. If the Wishmaker is the prince of the makers, does that mean there are other makers too?

  21. Sam, I really enjoyed your games while I was a kid, and I want to say you some things
    1: in my opinion the Ptd series are one of the best pokemon fangames ever made, I hope cosmoids will be even better, good luck and remember to rest!
    2: what happened to Champions TD? It was one of my favourites only surpassed by Ptd 2, anyways, doesnt matter much if you prefer to not respond this one
    3: like I said in the first one, don't forgot you are human and you have limits, rest when you need and care about your family, I have nothing more to say, well, I have one last thing
    4: BE HAPPY!

  22. I've played the PTD games since before PTD 1 had accounts (i lost a then-100% save and actually cried, but i was definitely warned that i'd need an account), and have enjoyed all three of them. One day you >might< go back and finish Legacy, but i look forward to playing Cosmoids a lot. I hope that you find enough inspiration to finish the first of these games, and make many more after.

    and a late Congrats to being a father.
