I just wanted to share briefly a game idea that I want to build off of and have already started doing so but wanted to get a general opinion first. So I won't go into every little detail but just the main information.
Again won't go over it too deeply but basically a scientist is working in his lab, creates a portal, things go wrong and then boom you're in a new dimension on some alien planet. As the portal parts explode and scatter over the lands, you must collect them to re-construct your portal and return home!
So upon entering the game you have one life to get the job done. You will start off in a selected pre-made level that will be random (making the game not completely predictable) and will contain the five portal pieces needed in random locations to move onto the next level. So basically you'll need to get each of the portal pieces and when you construct the portal, a boss will spawn and you need to defeat him before entering the portal which will then lead you to the next level which will follow the same idea as before. This will occur three times before a final level but the three will all offer randomly selected themes and designs to keep things fun! As you level up the enemies will as well, but I was also thinking of adding a feature that the longer you are in the level the harder the enemies become which kinda pushes you to hurry and find those portal pieces. Also of course there will be different weapons, unlockables, assisting items and such along the way each time.
I just want a general idea on what you think this game could have potential in and what your opinions are in what I have planned so far. Thanks for any feedback given and if you need me to clarifying anything better than just ask!
