A "evolution" game
Hello, and first of let me tell you something...
By "evolution" I mean "growing" but the general public as of current accepts "evolution" to be more recognized when it comes to physical changes to a living thing(Thank you The Pokemon Company)
I have two ideas for a game, but it is still in a blueprint stage, it's only a general idea, and still think what key milestones do I need to reach to make the game(Such as key features, graphic design AND PLATFORM[yeah, that early, can barely call it a development atm])
As of current I have these two ideas actually, but take on the same theme.
The first one, a co-op sort of thing with several creatures which can upgrade themselves throughout the game, basically RPG but taking on a little bit into survival, by that the NPCs are not the only enemy, but also the enviroment. (though some of you might note that I might have taken it from starbound, and I am not going to make excuses, I'll just ignore those comments for an obvious reason) The co-op here is more into puzzles, but have beat'em'ups with a rather advanced combat system.(Combos are op lolz)
The second one, less relevant to greenlight, though I wanted to make something under THAT category, however as of current want to make either. Less complicated, and more towards children and tablets, basically make a virtual pet, and yes this is inspired by tamagochis, however more into the Chao Gardens in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2(I believe also in Sonic Advance?) as in not having one pet but to have several with interractions with one another, while also giving the player a good amount of interaction. If I remember one thing I've spent about almost a year, even more, just because of the Chao Garden in Sonic Adventure, however here is why it won't be related to greenlight: It's problematic to make a tamagochi game on a PC. Generally it's a pick and play, and major flaw with this is the PC is not made for that.(unless somehow you lost internet connection for the weekend and can't play with your guild in WoW) And thing is, I really want there to be a game like this, but for the past few months I've been thinking "maybe I'll make it?" and in the way I think would make it a great virtual pet!
The latter as you can see is pretty much planned out with the direction of how it would operate and without too much info, I would say I even have in my mind how the end result would be.
The first idea I also have a general direction, and some key features, however, it is a complex idea and may take years before I could make a decent early beta as I have little to no experience with coding games outside Game Maker platform all by myself.
Here is the question I would like to discuss:
The first idea would definetly be made on the PC and be viewed in Greenlight if I'll manage to make a tech-demo at the very least. The other idea would be made into an Android but will be very different but to me would be interesting and not too complex, as android software development time expectencey is at least 5 months.
My question is: Which game would you be interested in playing? A co-op grow'em'up with a slight touch from terraria's and/or Starbound's world generation or a pet garden in your pocket?
