Game Concept. Looking for reviews.(New Concept)
After some thought, I have thought up a new concept. For this concept, it will be a 2d side scroller with a hub conecting to all the different levels. On the hub will be a small store where you can buy upgrades. There will be temporary ones like a robot army, or single-buy ones like superpowers.
This time, I will be focusing more on the story and have the gameplay as a traditional beat em up. Your goal in each stage is to cause enough carnage to max out your 'evil bar' at the top of the screen and call the boss to the stage.
Depending on what upgrades you buy, you can steal from civilians, blow up background 'stores', and other such 'evil deeds.'
Depending on the stage, police will appear immediately or when your 'evil bar' fills up to a certain point. Depending on the level determines the difficulty of the police and how many appear.
This game will probably not be indie material, but it will help me determine what I can do with the gaming engine and hopefully be a nice fun game to play. I plan to use this as a stepping stone to determine what skills I currently have, and what skills I will need to further my experience with game development.
Now that I have described the basic idea, I will ask the question once more.
Would you play this?
I will leave this here for arcival purposes:
My goal from posting here is to determine if there is any interest in the game I am planning. There is no point in creating a came that no one will play, and I need an unbaised opinion on the idea before I begin plans to produce it.
I have looked for the best place to get the public's opinion on it, and this is the only place I could find that updates with any frequency, and has a decent group of people to get opinions from.
The concept is fairly simple.
"My name is V, I'm what you would call 'The Bad Guy.' Why? Well, boredom mostly."
V is the main character, he is a regular citizen until one day during a spur of the moment he steals a chocolate bar from a store. He fails to get away clean, and spends a night in jail as a result. But the night only helped him decide on his path even more, he knew what to do.
He would become 'The Bad Guy'
It will be set in an open world, where you can be as 'bad' as you like. During the beginning you can only do small, petty crimes but as you grow and gain more powers your ability for carnage increases.
So far all those listed above are in my 'game plan.' I have gone over the basic mehanics of how the game will most likely work so I can contruct a solid game with a goal on fun and fun solely. There will be a story, but if I went into details this would become too long. I am hoping to make it 3d, but with my current skills 2d is all I will be able to manage, but that is not the most important factor.
I want to ask one question.
Would you play this?
