This is my first time making a CoG game. I could use any ideas for a game. Thank you in advance.
Try looking through this thread: http://www.choiceofgames.com/forum/discussion/170/inspiration-for-a-game.../
Wow! Never saw that. Thanks!
I have yet to see a CoG in the Western genre.
- Wandering a post-apocalyptic wasteland
- Survive a slasher movie
But really, if you don’t have an idea you are completely psyched about on your own, it will become a chore, and you probably won’t finish writing the game.
Also, start small! Do something to limit the scope of the game, like set it on a tiny uninhabited island, or write a single important day in your character’s life. Better to begin with a short finished game than several false starts (like I have cluttering my hard drive).
Horace is right about starting small. Remember: Whatever you’re planning is always going to be a lot bigger than you imagine.
Thanks to all of you!
