Any Game Ideas?
I've been thinking for a while and thought, If people can create an idea they like, why not see if the developers like it too?
I've always wanted a team based cops and robbers game. The two sides would spawn; one at a safehouse, the other at the station, and converge on a point, the bank. Police would re-spawn and criminals would not, because police can call in backup. The robbery would ensue and eventually turn into a pursuit to an escape area. I think this would offer very good team based gameplay.
What do you think of my idea, and/or do you have one of your own?
uhhm I had an idea and actually im turning it into a fan fiction which can be read on my da page, its called "big brother" its about a character who visits rapture after bioshock 2, following the neutral ending, elenor returns to rapture. Big brother, is a normal human, that has a carpload of adam, so if my story was made into a game, i imagine there would be many more plasmid based combat situations and some darker plot because of the obvious necessity of the retrieval of adam. Basically depending on the path you take elenor leads rapture in different ways. in my story, *spoiler alert* big brother saves the new new little sisters from elanor and ends up being hindered by a group of little sisters, chased by their big daddies. oh and lastly I added a new substance called "the apple" which is super concentrated adam.. lol here is that fan fic (chapter one) (chapter one)
I actually put up a thread in the VG & Tech thread with my ideas. Not at all related, but it's actually quite fun to plan a game. Making it is probably a bit harder.
Well you can't really ask other people for opinions on an idea of yours that your aren't sure of. Making a cop/robber game may be fun for a certain crowd. Honestly I'm not into that style of games but you née to ask yourself how are you going to get people interested in the game. You need a hook that make it unique. Like a city fell into anarchy where much of the citizens have turned too criminals and at the beginning of the game you can do chides that reflect on you into becoming a criminal or a savior to the peopl for being law back. Idk you dot have to listen to me but I'm just giving my thoughts, and don't change an idea you have just cause someone else made you.
Yeah, my idea was lacking story. Maybe something like nuclear war in Continental America and anarchy in Hawaii. Trouble in paradise much? Hawaii would be great, good scenery, it's an island so you don't have to set up oddly set boundaries and other stuff. I like the cops and robbers/ law vs. anarchists idea because it pits players against 50% of the other players and you really have to choose the side you like. Then, halfway through the match (yes, it'd be match based so true-skill could pair you with players of your caliber) you would switch sides to see the oppositions view. Points would be awarded for escape, amount looted, or completion if both teams were to die.
