I'm working on a simple idea for a short game, and would like some feedback. I also have a specific question. But, first, here is what I have so far: Summary: A world-wide invasion of your home planet is impending, and you are aiding the evacuation of a city. Traveling across the city, you must protect fellow citizens from harm while leading them to safety. Your destination is a space ship prepared for escaping the planet. Notes: - The destination space ship must be hidden or secret in some way. Possibly under ground or sea or ice. Implementation: FPS through a Source Engine mod (this is my first game project). Now, my question is which idea do you like better: 1) Not-too-distant future, the invasion is of Earth, and is by aliens. 2) Distant future, the invasion is of the "rebel" colony world Athena, and is by Sol system's government forces. I'm also seeking any constructive suggestions/thoughts/comments/ideas. Thanks in advance.

Im not too keen on cliche stories but I would suggest #1. Reason being is # 2 just sounds like one of those "rebels vs the alliance" stories with number 1 it can be left to the imagination. You can find out bits and pieces throughout the game of why the aliens are in the city, are they in the rest of the world? Who knows maybe there are clues to find out. What if its not even really aliens? My question to you is what kind of back story do you have planned for both scenarios? This will help you decide what path to go with your game.

I hope this helps...
