PostSubject: Game Ideas?   Thu Sep 23, 2010 9:39 pm

So next month, or next week, rather, I will be starting Final Project, which is the last 5 months of my program during which I and a few other programmers will be paired with some artists and a designer and we will spend this time making a game.

Now, we have to come up with a game idea first, then pitch it to the instructors and pray that they don't shoot it down. Unfortunately I have no ideas, at least none that I want to waste on this. So I come to you people to put forth your ideas for a game. Please be aware though, that we do only have 5 months, so no dragon age 3 or anything, just something like a decent 3D arcade game or puzzle game or...anything, really.

Any ideas?


btw, this is all assuming I pass my final tomorrow.

chess and the pieces fight for 5 seconds when capturing each other. No idea, but good luck. Keep us in the loop.

Heard of the game Kaboom?

Make it 3D

Basically, a whole bunch of balls are bouncing around in a confined space and what you have to do is blow up an area and when the other balls touch that area, they blow up too... So your goal is blow up X amount of balls. And the goal of balls your blow up gets larger and larger however the balls get smaller and smaller.... I dunno, just a game I enjoy when I am bored and have never seen a 3D version of it....

Some people also call it chain reaction.

alright heres the game

the character is a pile of shit, it wonders around dogging attacks and then poisons/subdues enemies. once they are down you drag them back to your base a Toilet, where they are digested in the pipes and you gain healths/ buffs depending on what type of enemy they were.

you could have an area attack "GAS ATTACK" and a directional attacks "FLING POOP BULLETS"
the bullets drain both of your Mass/health and strength. Using a gas attack slows your speed.

Buffs include
extra bullet strength without extra cost of mass,
double bullet shots and then multi directional shots without extra cost of mass
double area effect for gas attacks without double speed cost

When you are hit by the enemies firing "Cleaning Supplies" you loose your buffs

the round is over when you digest all the enemies or when the time runs out

camera:
a top down scroller

Named: "SHIT STORM"

I should probably also mention that we will be presenting this on stage in front of quite a large number of people. Also, remaking an existing game is probably going to get shot down by the instructor...along with games about poo.

Why not some kind of simple RTS involving zombies? Simple strat with a limited number of resources. Objectives like defending a certain location, Division of force to gather resources like ammo and food while protecting your "safe zone", rescuing other survivors, or escaping an infested area.

Hopefully it works for you man, i don't see it being too difficult or time consuming to code either. Simple coding for zombies and their "paths" as well as the ability to use already existing maps of cities or whatever for levels/level. If you need ideas just let me know, i've got tons of them and tons of different elements for it. I've been thinking about this game for like 8 years now and have read every piece of zombie material i could get my hands on. This is the game i've wanted to see made for a long long time, even if it's just to help someone with class.

Well apparently some group made this game already a few months back :\

That and my group doesn't want to make an RTS. I'll let you guys know what we eventually decide on.

Game name: Rabbit Hole



Definition of Rabbit Hole (from google):

-The entry point to a game, the start of a trail. From Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

-rabbit burrow: a hole in the ground as a nest made by wild rabbits

Game description:

Rabbit Hole is a game about humans digging deeper into holes of rabbits uncovering hidden truths about the world they live in, which is in fact controlled and run by little creatures that we portray to be cute and fluffy rabbits. Mind you, these rabbits are no ordinary house pet, they are masterminds in the sense that they created a world where you know nothing of what is really going on, it is a dream world (like the Matrix), where you are blinded from the truth and know no better, until now. Humans have finally begun to think outside of the hole, trying to find answers to questions that no one ever thought about.

Characters:

Socrates - a philosopher




Rabbits - led by a Rabbit King, they control the world that you think is real.



Bunnies - a young waitress in a nightclub whose costume includes the tail and ears of a rabbit (usually informal) especially a young rabbit. They will try to persuade you using their seduction.



Yourself - the only person who can help you realize what is real and what isn't, is yourself.



Objective:

You start the game by entering a rabbit hole, where you will fight your way down battling what is not real in order to find the truth. You will encounter cute little rabbits who will try to control your mind, and persuade you that what you live in is real, and not a world that is actually a puppet show run by them. Who will you trust? What will you believe? These are all questions that face you in this deep, dark, unjust hole.


By inserting your hardened and reborn character into this deep dark hole (pun), you will find the truth depth of your mind, some cannot comprehend what is down there, nor handle the consequences of what they've gotten their selves into.




Your connection to the true world is a philosopher, (ie. Socrates), he will try to make you understand the cave of a world that you lived in, and how the only truth you knew was that of shadows. Now it is time to see what true beauty is. The only way to get there is to breach the rabbit's hole, and make your way to the end of it. As you see the light, taking those final steps toward it, now you see, now you under--- WTF A GIANT FLUFFY RABBIT KING

Shit just got real.
Thoughts?

PS: ALL PICTURES FOUND ON GOOGLE
PPS: WHAT .. THE .. FUCK? I thoroughly enjoyed wasting my time typing of this.
PPPS: I put it all in Code to piss people off initially, but then it pissed me off too and looked bad so I took it all out.
