Hi Everyone,[/font]

[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

I'm in the midst of working on an IOS-based adventure / RPG that is single-player in nature. I've been thinking of ways to add elements to make it more social, without necessarily adding a multi-player or co-op component.[/font]

[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

Here are a list of ideas so far:[/font]

[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-friends lists.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-embedded chat.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-achievements.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-leaderboards.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-shareable game stats.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-shareable items.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-Twitter / Facebook / YouTube -enabled sharing.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-ability to leave messages for other players in their game experience.[/font]
[color=#111111][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]

-having other gamer's characters show up in your world, like Thatgamecompany's "Journey" plans to do.[/font]

Can you think of other ideas to add to this list?[/font]

What about (optional) quests that require you and your friends to both complete objectives? You start the quest and send a notification to your friends. Once enough people have completed the task(s), you all get some rewards.
