Ideas!

Post by GrinningManiac on Fri Nov 26, 2010 6:21 pm

I had two ideas. Neither are fully formed, and I'm not sure how either could be implemented...but heyhoo

1. A game in the vein of Dungeon Keeper / Evil Genius where you have to build a giant ancient jungle temple (Crash Bandicoot, first scene from Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark etc) with many relics, religious areas of worship, statues and objects of incredible monetary and spiritual worth. Then build a system of complicated puzzles, traps and platforming around them. Then upload it and people can try, a la LittleBigPlanet, to get all the loot. People can only upload a level into the system if they play the level themselves, proving it's beatable

2. In a story of some sort it transpires that the Dinosaurs were actually Ancient Astronauts (see TVtropes...if you dare) who could fly from which the legends of Dragons also originated. They were a dragon-like race of airborne aliens from Jupiter who had a mighty galaxy-spanning empire, but it fell apart and now their descendents have no proper records of the extent, history and achievements of their former empire.

The first would be, imho, an awesome game. The second could be a race of aliens in a space opera book/film or something

I like the first one, like a lot. Not so much the second though, no offense.

Well, the first could actually be the real sequel to Evil Genius (A game which, like the Movies, NEEDS A SEQUEL RIGHT THE FUCK NOW). Sounds good, work on it a bit.

Let me think, any ideas I've had....

A freeform roleplaying game where you start a terrorist faction from the ground up, choose what you're fighting for, recruit members, stockpile weapons, throw off investigations. On the other hand, you can play as someone like Interpol or the CIA trying to catch those wascally terrorists.

Gameplay would work a bit like a cross between Mount and Blade, Liberal Crime Squad and GTA. It'd get banned pretty much immediately though.

So there's this guy, & he gets taken by a big insectoid monster to a mass of people bits all assimilating into each other, brains become neural hubs & all parts become connected, divided up between the hubs. A hub can draw some of the mass out & form a weak body, which needs to assimilate human bodies to define itself. Eventually, it will grow into the monster that took the guy at the start, feeding the mass more humans.

Everything that comes from the mass is connected as a hivemind, ordered & driven by "Mother", a Queen-caste monster who births the mass & a "Chief" caste. The Chief caste & the mass spawn from a human body the Mother chooses. The Chief tends to the mass until monsters are produced, whereupon it goes into hibernation. Mother dies, everything that was spawned from her mass goes into mental & physical decay. When the Mother dies the Chief awakens & chooses a neural hub to become the Daughter, who is then impervious to the decay affecting the rest of the mass & its offspring, though still linked to the hivemind.
The Daughter grows faster than other offspring of the mass, eventually taking on & devouring monsters that have gone berserk in their degeneration. When the Chief's mind decays into oblivion the Daughter will consume it, & over the course of a few days transform into the Mother.

The Mother finds a human & plants a seed in it, becoming the mass. The human becomes the Chief.
