Apparently murdering babies is off the table - WoA2 contest



2: Adsense

So the week of awesome contest has just began, with the theme being "The toys are alive!".

My artist friend and myself came up with an idea last night, so I'm about ready to get started coding it. We're making a small tactical game where you play a group of mice defending their wooden-block fortress against the toy army soldiers marching forward to drive them off the land.

Here's the my concept sketch from last night:

I was originally suggesting we have mother mice laying on a nest with her kits/cubs/whatever, that the toy soldiers murder if you let them reach that point. The artist didn't go for it. Posted Image

So we're going in a more gameplay-first direction, instead of a political-commentary-on-the-bloody-cost-of-toy-wars direction. Posted Image

Interesting concept, I can see that going the "army men" way, didn't think of that, nice one!

Was the grid to help with the concept drawing, or are you doing a grid based system?

Isometric, grid-based. But I'm not sure how visible the grid will actually be. It'll probably be very subtle transparent grey lines, if visible at all.

You should have told the artist they were mutant zombie mouseketeers ready to consume the world and turn it into an undead disney theme park.

Hah, this sounds rather cute and fun! ^_^

Your artist's reaction shocks me--shocks me, I say. ;P

Mmmm, isometric tactical game. Makes me want to play X-Com: UFO Defense force. But not until NEXT week. :)

 

Good luck man,
