Hello Gamedev, i am currently in the brainstorming phase of several different video games. I am currently
playing with the idea of making all of these games persist within the same "universe".
Given all my current ideas do not fall into the same genre of game, but i feel as though its possible to make
them all fit together like a puzzle somehow.
Is this an idea worth pursuing? Everyone i have asked so far seems to enjoy the idea, but i was hoping i could
get a more professional and peer driven opinion.
Sorry about trying to resurrect this topic, but i was away for school and was hoping i could further emphasize my idea.
Lets say game A is an Action adventure game with a character who wields a particular sword After the events of his/her game, he/she dies and is forgotten by history.
Game B(on the other hand) is a fighting game, where a character has unearthed The sword from Game A and uses it in Game B.
Do you mean like a series? Isn't that what Bioware did with Mass Effect series? One ending led to the different beginning in the next game, and so on because the later series were able to read the save file of the previous series and begin the story like that (and for people who do not have previous series' save file, they had the default data)
But the only difference now is that meanwhile the first game was FPS, second game is Fighting game. Then the third game becomes RTS, and so on.
