Task 1: Idea Development (Improved)

The RPG genre has been around digitally for multiple decades (as early as 1974) as a result, every graphical style has been used in the creation of RPGs. Pixel-Art, Cel-Shaded, Abstract, and Photorealistic styles have all been used in creating RPG games. Although nowadays, the more popular and well known RPGs are focused on being photorealistic to create an immersive and lifelike experience, but you will still find many RPGs where other graphics styles are used. For my game, I would like to use an Abstract style, focusing on being cartoony while still being semi realistic.
