Marco's 3 Easy Tips for Bullet Custom Design
- Your heroine should SCREAM their gimmick and personality. Esfir is a powerful gravity-user with equally powerful movement. Young-Ja possesses bullets and throws them out of her sight. Find your heroine's "thing" and make it shine!
- There are many ways to translate your heroine's "thing" into the game. While it may seem like the correct path to bend the game's mechanics around to fully emulate the experience you want, it is often best to go for something more elegant that will give the same FEELING as the experience. Err on the side of simplicity. You'll find that it saves you a lot of time!
- While balance is important, it is more important that your heroine provides an experience that is engaging and fun! Don't be afraid to try things that seem "broken" or "too out there." It may surprise you that that cool thing ends up being completely fine. If it doesn't work out, no problem! You can just try again!
