Okay, so I’ve taken a look through the forums and found that a lot of people were dissatisfied with the one hosted Super Hero game so far. I’ve decided to try my hand at this genre, because… well… I love Super Heroes. I rarely read comic books, but I grew up on Super Hero TV shows. I remembered watching X-Men, Batman The Animated Series, and Spider-Man. I remember getting really excited the first time I saw Batman and Superman team up. I still watch Super Hero shows, like Young Justice (why isn’t there a season 3?!).
When I was a kid, I found a textbook (a really thick one!) that described a whole bunch of Super Heroes, most of which I’ve never even heard of before. Most entries took up half a page. That was when I learned that comic book Super Heroes have been around since 1939 and it was when I learned that there’s a huge history that tied everything together.
Anyways, I haven’t gotten very far yet. All I have is the background and setting in which the game will take place. I don’t know if it’s a huge rip-off or a homage to DC and Marvel Super Heroes. Hopefully the latter. If so, you can just think of this game as an alternate Amalgam universe. The idea is to divide the story into multiple paths, each of which will determine who will be the final Super Villain you would have to face. Who you interact with and the decisions you make will also reveal more bits and pieces of the Super Hero history (little piece of spoiler here: some of them has time traveled before).
Try and figure out all the Expys (as in, which DC and/or Marvel character that each of my characters are based on)!
Bonus points if you figure out the significance of each major event!
