The select button or back button will open the menu, and the player can equip, check stats, use items, etc. On screen, you will be able to see and control your character, and a map will be in the right hand corner with a position cursor of the player.
Artificial Intelligence I want the NPC's to be able to respond to the situations that are taking place in the game, and actually be relevant and help out the player characters. And for enemies, I want them to be increasingly powerful throughout the game and be challenging to the player character as well.
Audio I want good voice actors to match the personality of each character, and how I described their speech. I also want realistic sound effects, like clashing swords, battle cries, blood squirting out, etc. The music in the game is a vital point for me; the music will be symphonic and instrumental, and go along to each situation, and theme.
Target Market The target market will be between age 13-45. It will be both male and female, in the USA, Asia, and Canada. They will be interested in good storylines, graphics, and a lengthy game.
Competitive Analysis Final Fantasy XIII:Good storyline, AMAZING graphics, good length. Bad battle system. Resonance of Fate:Good story line, graphics, and characters. Bad interface. Tales of Vesparia:Awesome storyline, ok graphics, and good battle system. Not the best graphics. Rpg fans look for good graphics, characters, storylines, and combat systems. Most prefer real time rather than turn based. These three titles are strong in some, but weak in other points as well. I want my game to be complete in what an average rpg seeker is looking for!
