Whose your favourite Level Designer?


Recommended Posts

So who is yours? Basically in three categories. Style (Art, Beauty, Design), Story & Gameplay.

 

For me it's

  • Bikerdude for Design especially his room details.
  • Grayman for story
  • Demagogue for Gameplay.

What's yours?

The style is difficult. I think many FMAs make sufficiently excellent visuals these days, and I cannot prefer one over the others.

  • Most FMA's for Design
  • Moonbo for story
  • Greyman for Gameplay - no doubt there.

This is tough to narrow it down to just one person per group but if I had to choose my absolute favorite's i'd choose:

  • Design - Kingsal
  • Story - Moonbo
  • Gameplay - Sotha
  • Like 1

This one is very tough, but lets assume there isnt multiple choice and only 3 categories -

  • Melan for Design
  • Grayman for story
  • Sotha for Gameplay.

And the reason its so tough, is Moonbo applies to all three categories.

 

I totally agree, same names, but I also would add:

 

  • Kingsal for Design (but not exquo with Melan only because Kinsdal made only one mission so far)

Style - Melan

Story (content+cinematics) - Grayman

Gameplay - Moonbo

 

If you add T2 I'd add Purah, Gaetane, Lady Rowena or Lord Alan

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Style - Airship Ballet (interiors)/Goldwell (opening sequences - this could also be mentioned as "story")

Story - Moonbo (an author that can visualize his thoughts with a 3d engine - brilliant)

Gameplay - Sotha/Bikerdude (Ulysses 1,The Transaction, The Gatehouse and many more FMs... impossible to pick a favorite - both of you could make a living out of this)

 

There are so many talented people around here and with all the new ones joining, I really can´t wait for the next missions.

I'm still to play more than half of the missions out there so the list is mostly incomplete. All Level designers have strong points and weak points. But all very talented.

And bikerdude close to Moonbo ;)

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

LOL, that's impossible, man :D I merely refined Pranqster's ideas!

There are so many talented people here, I could hardly pick up one and miss the others. Thanks for all your submissions, making TDM what it is today! :)

I don't think so, I think it's recognising talent, which gives inspiration to others.
