While I want to finish up my current game, I have thought a lot about my second game. I am not sure in what direction I want to go to with the second game, because I have two ideas. I will most likely do both of these games at one point, but I just want to see which people would prefer to happen first.
Vampire Mafia Idea
As you can see from the title, you can see where this is heading. Vampires rule like governments, but own their own territories with their own “taxes.” Sadly, in this game you can not be a ghoul or hybrid. While you are a human being initially, you will be forced to become a vampire. What you do as a vampire is up to you. You can either join the mafia and be their enforcer. This does not mean that you will be collecting money. Oh no, you will be doing other duties like managing their money (if you went into business), making sure people keep quiet (did your parents abandon you?), etc, etc. Lots of possibilities, and I am sure I can keep updating this game when its released with more unique content to add more choices. If you want to be a good vampire, you can pick lighter options to do so, and the story will accommodate. If you decide to be a little cruel, the story will also accommodate. For example you can get presented the chance to feed on a human, if you decline you may not in the story be presented this option again, but rather you will get the choice to drink blood from a glass instead. Another would be is when you get for example attacked by a hunter, do you kill the hunter or leave him to live. The choice you make will represent you. If you let the hunter live, he may for example come to understand you more, and help you in the future. If you kill him, his children or friends for example might want to kill you for revenge.
There will be generations in this game, which means if X got made into a vampire by Y, then how far is X from the first vampire. So if Y is 9th generation, X will be 10th generation.
Each vampire has a master and so forth. Generations is the gap between the first and you. Each vampire has their own set of skills, which vary. The older and less generation gap, the more powers you can have.
Clans and Skills
There are no clans in this game, but each vampire gets their own set of unique abilities. However, you do still get same generic vampire skills, such as speed, hand claws, etc. This all depends on the vampire skills you choose.
This is a mafia type of game. You will choose a side. However, neither side is either just good or bad. There will be most likely 2 major powers in the city, but there will be smaller groups as well.
Will there be Werewolves, Mage’s, Witches, Zombies?
Zombie Apocalypse Idea
You start as X for X reason and then during X the zombie apocalypse happens. I understand that there are a lot of games like this, but my game will be unique. There will be different types of zombies and there will be that usual horde zombie as well. You can try to survive as a human or as an infected. You can make good choices, or be a complete ass, or have fun while you do your own thing. There will be one main story, but there will be side stories as well.
There are humans, Infected and Zombies. Infected do still require resources to live, but the type of infected you are depends on you. You can survive on regular food, brains or perhaps something else?
Everything I posted is just me just talking. Nothing official. I have decided to vague…so just say whichever one you’d prefer to play. If you like neither, then that is fine but please be constructive if you wish to be negative.
