I have recently started to make a full commitment to developing a game of my own. After years of playing all the popular shooter games, I want to throw in my own creative tastes. The issue is this: I have so many ideas.
I have decided to try and develop a first-person shooter that is centered around parkour. I have a strong love for the art and I practice it myself. I want a game that revolves around fluid movement. But I want it to be more than just that. Battlefield and Call of Duty have begun to add more fluid and "parkour-like" movements with vaulting, sliding, diving, etc. But there are so many movements the human body can do that these games do not allow you to. I know that this is what I want. I just am not sure about the story and confrontation.
I am an avid writer, so writing a good story is not an issue. But I have options. The most basic idea for the game would be to pit two teams against each other in an environment focused around parkour and have them fight to the death. But then, I had another idea. How about an FPS that functions as a racing game? Two teams of "parkour warriors" race from one side of the map to another. They can shoot at each other, damage the environment, take shortcuts-all that jazz. But there is a twist: the teams are getting chased by velociraptors on the roof tops! Sort of like Temple Run with guns and dinosaurs. My final idea is a zombie survival game- kind of like the popular DayZ mod. Except, destructible environment, customization, parkour, and maybe some other features that are too specific for that idea to be included in this post.
I have been asking my friends which game they would want to play more and almost all of them have said the Zombie Survival game. I am interested to try it as well but, getting chased by dinosaurs sounds really freakin' sweet to me. I would really love some feedback on which idea is the better or if none of them are good. I can reach a lot more opinions on the internet than in person. (We all know people love to give their opinions over the web XD)
I would greatly appreciate it.
