potential game idea

Post by jack1974 » Tue May 31, 2016 8:21 am

So of course right now I'm working on the normal story-based games. I have no time to do anything else :)
However while taking a break yesterday, I looked at all the SOTW code (random item generations, etc) and thought that would be a waste to not reuse it in another game.
My idea would be to try doing a gladiator/manager game, in which you manage a roster of fighters, and then participate in a sort of championship.
Of course since it's one of my "other games", would have no story (wouldn't make sense).
I thought might be an interesting game idea to play. If I do it, won't be before next year anyway :o

You sure you don't want to let us romance our gladiators? ;)

Considering they would be randomly generated... I would have 1000s of gladiators to romance :lol: maybe a bit too much!

I played once one gladiator manager game, I thought it sounded nice when I heard about it but the game bored me in a first hour already. Then Again there are not that many non-story based games with I like.

You've talked about this before. Reuse PSCD code for a Gladiator card game instead. :lol:

No for the card game I have in mind an even more sick idea :mrgreen: some town building+card fighting mix. Of course I need to do some prototypes first since the mix could be actually horrible to play :lol:!

Were this to happen, would we be able to have gladiators from previous games in it?

I've always seen the following as a Dream Match:
Amukikki vs. Krimm, both wielding their signature weapons! :twisted:

That way instead of having to deal with 1000s of randomly generated romances, you could have them only for special unique gladiators. ;)

I made a prototype last year, but then I hadn't the time to work on it much more :)
