If You Could Make or see a COG for an Official Licence


#1

Clearly this would never happen for reasons we have all been told, but if COG were allowed to make a game around a licence I’d be curious which ones people would opt for seeing.

Personally having seen several super hero games done so far I still would love one set in the Marvel Universe, especially if it was an X-Men game where you happen to be a new member of Charles Xavier’s school, either as a student or a new teacher. Pick your powers, interact with the other X-Men like Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, Colossus and Wolverine, get the chance to date one - my male character and female character would totally be hooking up with Psylocke and Nightcrawler respectively - or even go rogue and side with the Brotherhood or Hellfire Club. Plus battle Sentinels, Purifiers, Apocalypse and Mr Sinister. An expansive game like that in the Marvel Universe would be a dream for me.

Alternatively a game in the Doctor Who Universe where you get to be the Doctor or a new companion would be Fan-Tast-Ic! Travel in the TARDIS, interact with aliens, help out UNIT or Torchwood, face off against Daleks, Cybermen and the Master. All in a season style game with multiple adventures affected by your choices.

Those are my two main picks, I would love to hear yours.

Star Wars. Nuff said.


#3

Well, The petal throne is from an official license, The world of Tekkumel a mythical and hardcore difficult table rpg. I would love The White wolf World of darkness license That universe is perfect for cog.


#4

@Poison_Mara Old World of Darkness or New? But really, there’s already a White Wolf World of Darkness game. Choice of the Vampire appears to have some very heavy White Wolf influences.


#5

@fantom Oh heck yes, so many options for awesomeness, be you a Bounty Hunter or Jedi or Smuggler or Sith or Droid or Trooper or such. Like KOTOR: The COG Version.

Speaking of stuff with Star in the title, I would love a Star Trek game where you were a crewman on the Enterprise (TOS or TNG, Kirk and Picard are both awesome) or Stargate with you on a SG crew battling Gould and Replicators and such.

Since we’re on the topic, I’ve always wondering what would required to do a licensed game of a major title such as Star Wars and the like.


#7

Mass Effect. That is all.


#8

I just played old one, new versions of rules frequently are terrible bad or plainly boring. And about Choice yes has some similarities. But what i would love is a modern one with the clans Vampire bloodlines style . I could imagine several games / missions where you maintain same character trying to survive


#9

I’d love a Harry Potter game! It was such a huge part of my childhood and I always wanted to go to Hogwarts :wink:


#10

@fantom Being very good with Disney I guess, EA seems to have ten years of games planned once Battlefront is out. I remember a while back hearing Telltale might be doing something with Star Wars but of course loads of licences are suggested with them, but since they’re doing a Marvel game for 2017 I guess a SW one isn’t impossible. If they can do something as great as Tales from the Borderlands I’d be on board with it.


#11

The Kingkiller Chronicle. Playing as Kvothe and being in control of how he became a legend, would be a dream come true.


#12

Second a Harry Potter game, I just love the universe.

I think a really fun one to pull off would be Pokemon as well. I’d love to see something like it.


#13

I’m going to sound a little pedantic here, but I would kill for the “license” to expand the world set down in Choice of Broadsides


Choice of Broadsides 2?
#14

I’d like to see Firefly/Serenity. For all the plot holes and bungles, that was an evocative setting and compelling story that deserved at least one more season.


#15

Borderlands. I love that world and would adore doing a fan expansion on it, a la Tales from the Borderlands. I’ve actually thought about throwing something like that together, which I think would be fine as long as I didn’t try to sell it.


#16

I second every single suggestion made on here so far. :thumbsup:


#17

I’m old school, so I’d say World of Darkness/Vampire the Masquerade.

For just raw sales, probably Harry Potter.


#18

While not an official licence the first ever game idea I had for Cog was actually a Mass Effect cyoa.


#19

I would love to write such a thing, but I guess a bit pointless if it can never be published. Plus I would never be able to live up to the actual games. Out of interest was shepard the main character in your idea?


#20

It can’t be published by CoG but as long as it was clearly marked as a fan-only project you could host it on a website for free.

The idea revolved around an OC who was the security chief on an Alliance funded ship (it was set between Mass Effect 2 and 3. The player would have been either human, asari, krogan, turian or quarian.
