A: Kind of a broad question. The series as a whole is whatever I make of it. The first game, ''[[Power Master 1: A Strange Journey]]'', revolves around a group of young heroes as they try to collect [[Gems]] before the main bad guy, [[Exitilus]]. But there's so much other content packed into the game, and I want this exploration to continue in future titles.

Who I choose to include in my games is purely up to me, unless I reach out and specifically ask otherwise. Please understand.

Have a question about the Power Master Wiki or the Power Master series? If it's been asked enough times before, you'll likely find it here. If it's not here, you can always ask on the talk page.

The questions listed here are those frequently asked (or at least expected to be frequent questions) to the creator of the series and wiki, Alex95 (talkcontribslogsblock log). The answers are written as if it were his response, and he chooses which new questions to add, if any.

Game questions

Q: What is Power Master?
A: Kind of a broad question. The series as a whole is whatever I make of it. The first game, Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, revolves around a group of young heroes as they try to collect Gems before the main bad guy, Exitilus. But there's so much other content packed into the game, and I want this exploration to continue in future titles.

Q: Is your entire game series going to be a massive overlaying plot line?
A: They will definitely intertwine and be connected to one another. Though I have a lot of games planned, so it may not be apparent how one leads into another at first. For example, Power Master 2 comes before Power Master 1 and explains some of the events taking place beforehand.

Q: Will there be non-RPG Power Master titles in the future (such as a sports title)?
A: I have some ideas, so very likely yes.

Q: Where can I download the Power Master games?
A: At the moment, Power Master games are only available through my Itch.io page. Supporting me on Patreon will also net you demos of upcoming games ;)

Q: Why should I support through Patreon when I can just wait for the full game?
A: Because the waiting game sucks. Also, I might sprinkle some bonuses here and there...

Q: Will Power Master come to gaming consoles like Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4? How about Steam and smartphones?
A: It's definitely a possibility! It's been my dream to get my own games onto a Nintendo system since I was a kid. Steam and smartphones have been giving me issues, so I'm honestly not sure on those yet.

Q: What inspired Power Master?
A: Plenty of things. Mainly other video games and a want to express myself. And boredom. Plenty of boredom.

Q: Will you include (insert social diversity character here) character in your games?
A: I've been asked before to include LGBT, black, and suicidal/depressed (yes, seriously) characters into my games. No offense to the LGBT community, but I just can't bring myself to include a character like that. Dakota is a black character, so that answers that question. Who I choose to include in my games is purely up to me. Please understand.

Q: Will there be crossover characters, i.e. characters from other games being included in Power Master?
A: Yes.

Q: Do you make everything yourself?
A: At the moment, yes. Well, most everything. In Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, I do all the sprites and eventing, and have a music program create music for me. Everything else is provided by the system. One day I'll get a team of people.

Q: Can I join the development team?
A: Shoot me a message of some kind and maybe we can work something out!

Q: Will you ever make something different than Power Master?
A: Maybe. Getting through Power Master ideas first.

Q: Can I use a Power Master character in a game I'm making? How about fanart?
A: Honestly, I'm not too stuck up on the copyright laws. The characters are mine, and as long as you attribute them to me properly, I'm totally fine with it. I only ask you let me see the finished product once it's done!
