To kill a game

Post by Sparx the Cy-Wolf on Sat Nov 28, 2009 7:03 am

I've been thinking about killing my game "Diamond Quest" for several reasons:

Exclamation Not well planned
Exclamation hardly anybody plays
Exclamation I've no idea how to finish it off

What I want to do is kill this game and replace it with something else of the same gamplay, i.e. a platformer.
However this time I want to do it based on a "theme" that is well known, like my Metal Sonic game which has become a success for me, it was based on the popular sonic series, where as Diamond Quest was just something random.

So here was what I was thinking: "Virtual Homer".

Basically it's Homer Simpson going through several gaming themes such :

Exclamation Tetris
Exclamation Pacman
Exclamation Super Mario land (several ideas here)
Exclamation Sonic

What I want to try here is to combine the humour of homer with the gameplay of different gaming themes, for instance Homer flying through space defeating viruses from dr.mario, etc.

However, I want to expand ideas further than just these four, (or any oher I can come up with).

So any ideas?

fooey! I do not like the homer idea because it's homer! Noone will likely play it because almost every game vased off of a TV show or movie usually suck. TV and videogames don't mix except that the tv screen is used as the monitor...
You should create a character that is humorous and use it instead of homer. Like Jobo the soldier

You should use an original character. Like Mary G. Wahna the crazy gang leader with an ak47 in each hand.

If you can give me a reference of her, i.e. a picture of her or a detailed description of her, I may actually go ahead with that.
I've been wanting to create my own set of sprites anyway! Smile

She has a moderate figure with frizzy black hair wearing dirty trashy hand-me-downs that are a bit too small. She has two eyes, one's a bit bigger than the other, a nose and maybe a couple of ears, she probably has an arm or two maybe a couple legs i don't know. She only has one kidney, she sold one for smoke money. I think that'll do.

Name: Razor Sharpe

Species:Scorpion (possibly a fat tail scorpion)

Age:19

Personality:Usually easy going and surprisingly polite, however is very quick tempered and is known to hold long grudges with anybody that goes against him.
When fighting he has a habit of "mocking" his opponents, which can effectivly distract them.

Skills:
Natural brawler - Highly skilled in street fighting and martial arts, even against multilpe oppoenents won't bother him as he always likes a challenge.

Digging -Has the ability to literally "swim" in the ground which is useful for surprise attacks.

Spin attack -Spins horizontally like a drill to attack opponents or to dig into the ground quickly, spinnig fast enough can create a mini-vortex which sucks in opponents.

High resistance - Like a scorpion he has armour like skin that can absorb the worst from a punch, but not strong enough to take on a bullet, which Razor learned the hard way!

Other notes:
His grandfather was a sea scorpion with traits passed on with each generation, Razor is very manourverable in the water and can hold his breath for long periods.

Razor possess an unatural defect in his tail as it does not contain any poisons, a trait that his father did not take very well.

Razor's father killed his own wife after an argument whilst drunk, Razor hates and rejects his father because of this, likewise his father hates him as well.

Razor's most prized possession is a small gem given to him by his mother when he was younger, for reasons even he doesn't understand, it gives him peace when his anger is at it's worst.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I actually quite like this one.
I'm thinking of making actual sprites for this character.
....and before anybody asks YES I know my drawing skillz suck, the drawing ain't official it's only a piece of concept art.

To get a truly great character you make up five and pick a favourite.

Because that way you've got the best one, and you can mix and match the ideas from other characters if you want.
