PostVideo Game ideas

Okay, so I have a project for my school that is basically picking your specifications and project and I've decided to make a videogame (learning along the way)

I am probably going to use unity but I am open to other suggestions.

I need an idea for a game, and that starts with picking the genre/sub genre for it.
I am also open to specific suggestions as well.


Keep in mind that I would like for it not to be too difficult as I have no prior experience and will be learning along the way.

I love 2d rpg's and action adventure games, but the problem for you is that those aren't easy. For the rpg you have to a crud ton of math, and for the action adventure game you'd need to program the enemy AI. The best bet for you is to create a endless runner game, and have it so that as the further you go the faster you get. That way you don't have to program too diverse a set of obstacles.

thanks for the suggestions^

yeah, endless runner as my initial idea, as it seemed relatively simple to implement

And I like math if that helps lol (it probably doesn't)

Why not just make a platformer with enemies on a preset pattern?

platformers are fun to make and you can make crazy bosses if you want lol

i remember when i was 12 i made a game and it was hilarious, bamboo trees were enemies, giant one was the boss.

also, another easy game to make that can be really fun is raiden style upwards scrolling bullet hells. You can generate patterns for bullets pretty easily.

None of the above.. Honestly one of the more simple and exciting types of games in my opinion are the "Visual Novels".

Hotel Dusk, 999, Virtues Last reward are all like this and in some respects the Walking Dead Game. They are all choice based games (like the old choose your own adventures), only need as much graphics and action as you want in them and can be very exciting.

Technically it can be a "Visual Novel" with puzsel, adventure and many different other elements in it. You can also add some 2D rpg elements and all in all it will remain pretty simple... Choice "A" leads to decision "b" leads to outcome "W" you acquier item "1" to us back at are "P".. And because you made Choice "A" your puppy dies but you learned how to combine an herb and mushroom to make a potion... wait I think I may be getting my games confused now?

Anyways, I pick Visual Novel!

It can be a short story and the art style can be creative to whatever you feel... also, look back to the older text base games.
 
It doesn't have to be anything too involving I'm sure and from what I know about Jaggi he can be very creative with the story and art. and "Choose Your Own Adventures" were never long.
 
Also, he was asking for suggestions, that was mine.


(on a side note... have you seen some of the crappy art in some games lately? and people still buy them? what is wrong with people?)

The choose your own adventure series weren't video games though. Books don't need art or mechanics to sell. Just good writing and plot.

Jedem das Seine

Also Ares, i believe they did a few short 3 series games based on the "choose your own adventure series". They were mostly textbased with choices and a few pictures here and there.


@ Vort... I can'T wait to find out the ending ;)

i'd also recomment some infinite runner game or a platformer. if you want something even more simple you could make something like this one I made: http://mhwiki.forumotion.net/t9365-my-first-videogame

though you could make it more komplex with mving obstakles and better designe. i did it with Blender which is a great programm if you wanna go 3D

This doesn't surprise you? It surprises the shit out of me, I mean I would have guessed Vort would use visual novels as an [edit by forum owner: please remain appropriate.] aid but to see that he actually plays them for the plot completely changes my view of Vort as a person.

you should totally make that dating game, with the real school girls and willma as your main character. You'd get an A just for accuracy alone.

Thanks guys I think I'll go with that.
