My last exam is next week, so i decided to start making a game. And here starts my problem. I just have way to many idea’s for one. So without letting my thoughts stray around, let’s begin.
Idea nr. 1)
So my first idea was to make an assassin like game. But here you have just way to many ways to go. I have narrowed them to two ideas.
First one would be something like Assassin’s Creed. Secret society wanting to take over the world, or just a king with ambitions and Machiavellian way of ruling. and we as the only one good and righteous… or not? Game would have some moral choices, because assassination isn’t always the only solution. If you still choose to assassinate your target, how would you do it? Go all berserk or be like a shadow? Where would it happen? In a medieval kingdom or somewhere in future? If i would chose the future, what kind of future would it be? A post apocalyptic world where humans fight for survival or in some high-tech world, where cancer has been cured, and baby’s are born from cabbage .
Second one would change mostly the background of the story. I was thinking about warriors of shadows, commonly known as ninjas. Choice would be a little bit more limited but it would still contain moral choices. If you ever saw the movie “Ninja Assassin”, movie is bad, but it gives you an idea of what kind of moral choices do i mean. But here are the same problems. What kind of world setting should i use? Feudal Japan or modern day or future?
Idea nr. 2)
My second idea was about medieval knights. I mostly thought about Templars, but other suggestions are welcome. This one would be more troublesome if it goes about the story settings. Templars are usually associated with the crusades to the holy land, but they had some serious impact on the way we live now in Europe. So here comes my next question about them. Should i place the story during a crusade and if yes, during which one? On the other side, story could take place during the end of they convent.
Idea nr. 3)
My last idea that wasn’t completely random was about being a falsely accused prisoner. You would be put in a high security facility (let’s say something like Guantanamo Bay or Alcatraz, chose one that you like more ) and would chose a way, how you ended there. Story would be more about human morality, then about action but… hell why not. Every choice you would make, will end in different kind of story. To put it bluntly, people react the other way about a white criminal, and about a black one (no offense to afro-American people). So your race, profession or even your sexual attraction would make the difference.
As for now, i would like you to say what you thing about each of the ideas and how you see them. Of course, say which one do you like the most and just discuss them. Here comes my last question. As i stated in my last thread, i would like to translate the game i make to other languages. If anyone is interested, just send me a private message and we can work on this together .
