See how fans are writing and designing Mega Man Legends 3

Ever wanted to make your own game? Well, you can start attending college for a couple years, and then move right along to scraping together the millions of venture capital required to start your own studio and hire a development team… Or wait, why not dive in, free and immediately, by contributing directly to Mega Man Legends 3 right now?! 

How? Head on over to The Development Room, part of the Mega Man Legends 3 Project, where Capcom Unity is giving amateur writers, actors and designers the chance to permanently leave their stamp on the first entry in the Mega Man Legends series in over a decade.

Just recently the MML3 Project Dev Room allowed its community to design characters, mechs, and even vote on the name of the game’s newly unveiled heroine, Aero. Unfortunately, their latest event, which let aspiring writers pen the dialogue, backstories and names for the townspeople, concluded yesterday. But hey, there are undoubtedly more opportunities to make your Mega mark on the horizon.

This is pretty damned cool if you ask me. I can count the number of times a developer has offered us, the illustrious gaming press, the chance to contribute anything to the final build of a game on a single hand. But here's Capcom giving everybody the opportunity, at no cost, and for one of my most anticipated games no less! I’d hop on this quickly, fellas. The game can only encompass so many “Tron Boner” jokes.

    And on a portable device, no less.

    Oh... my God. I've been waiting for another (or at least a remake of) Megaman Legends for years. If there was ever a game I spent my childhood on, Megaman legneds was the one. Not only my childhood hero, but one of my favorite series of said hero! Now, if only they made another, actually good Megaman Battle Network game....

    Shame they already seem to have pulled a bit of a mini 'screw-you' with Aero. Seems that not long after she won the vote to be the girl for the game, Capcom decided to do a number of tweaks to the design of her, quickly changing how she looked when people originally voted for her...

    The next three hours of my day will be spent writing character backgrounds. <3 Mega Man Legends
