If you want to group cats, bears and wolves together they would be carnivores (thats their RL classification, order carnivora).

Also put reptilians, people like reptilians.


Others can be crustaceans (similar to insectoids, but underwater), fish/whales, plants, fungi, worms, other kinds of mammals.

Just take any word in other language and maybe deform it a bit, most real countries are name like that.


Spain means land of rabbits, Germany means land of all people, Nigeria is named after the color black, Argentina is name after the metal silver, America is named after an italian explorer, Cuba means barrel.

My first thought is that it sounds like Minecraft creative mode in outer space.


Now, how do people interact with the world? Is it possible to modify it? Can you create solar systems or terraform planets?

From your description I dont really know what does the player do in this game.



I enjoy when there is trust and respect between player and developer. A sort of mutual understanding. My goal is to treat the player as the intelligent, emotional being she is.


Are you assuming other developers dont treat their players as such? Also, are you trying to target the game to women specifically?


If you want to treat the player as an intelling being you should put some mental challenge, like puzzles or something. If you want to go for the emotional aspect, put something the player can relate and attach to. I think its hard to attach to some stars, planets and space phenomenon, unless they have inhabitants, but I could be wrong.


Finally, what other games have you played before?

Put a picture of a mock-up Fidel Castro in the cover and-, wait, no, Tropico already did that.


Use a mock-up Hugo Chavez instead.

I havent played Towns so I dont know its mechanics. From he screenshots it looks a bit similar to Dwarf Fortress.


From what you wrote I get you dont have much experience in programming, so I would recommend you to introduce yourself in the beginners subforum and ask for guidance.
