You Live In A World Only Desert. Everyone But You And Your Mother Are Alive. You Have To Drive To The Other Side Of The Earth, To Get In A Space Ship Away From The Planet. You Have A Car, And Need To Refuel Often. Also You Need To Get Something In The House You Find On Your Way. Also You Need To Kill Some Type Of The Creatures.
Depends How You Present It. I Have Seen Quite A Few Survival Flash Games, You Just Stand There Repairing Car/Ship/Whatever And Shoot Incoming Waves Of Monsters. However If You Capitalize Every Word You Might Have Some Troubles.
You Live In A World Only Desert. Everyone But You And Your Mother Are Alive.
No. That can't work, because everyone else except you and your mom is alive, so that means your protagonists are dead. Spanky, your question is unclear, to say the least. When you ask if the "game" could work (in quotes because it sounds more like a story than a game), what is it you are trying to find out? It's technically feasible, if that's what you're asking - all it needs is a design, a team, and a business plan. Or are you asking if it could be marketed (if it might sell)? Or are you asking if the story is compelling? I recommend you read How To Ask Good Questions and try again.
