I am just finishing up Colonising Kepler 62e now with beta testing set to start next week some time.
As such, my mind has been debating what to do next. Blackraven is still on the back burner for now and I think it will take a major re-write. I don’t want to get bogged down with that yet. Instead, I have two other ideas I have been toying with.
The Assassination of Mary, Mother of Jesus.
It is present day and you are an expert on ancient languages. One day, you are visited by a small group who claim to be time-travellers. They are extreme atheists and their mission is to rid the world of Christianity. Their plan: to travel back into the past and kill Mary before Christ is born.
The catch: Time travel is one way only. Worse still, it follows precise patterns which mean that you will have to make many jumps before you reach the time of Jesus and Mary.
This will blend sci-fi, history and religious philosophy in an adventure story.
Your actions along the way will change history one way or another…
(historically accurate game with sci-fi splashed all over it).
Edit: (extra info based on feedback) you will be able to play the game as a born-again Christian. There will be several final outcomes to the game and, while atheist myself, this game is not intended to be anti-religious. It’s more about asking the question, what if?
Zombies of Scarrh
The world has been calm since your birth. The sandmen have been irradicated. The truce between humans and apes is holding. The world is at ease. However, the rediscovery of a lost desert village ignites the world into a living nightmare. Zombies are here. And they are hungry for you…
(fantasy game in an ancient world. With zombies, dragons, magic, and talking apes).
Which game sounds more appealing? Which one should I make next?
