Arena Of Gods - Game Concept

0 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

First at all, the game idea I have is a MMORPG ( Yes I have read the topic "Going to post your game idea? Read this first" )
I'm still studying for the coming 2 years ( Digital Arts & Entertainment ) so I get licenses allot cheaper. Meaning that I don't need to waste time but need to focus on practicing & creating concepts for games.

I am really into Gods and stuff and there aren't really so many games that includes Gods. (God of war & Age of Mythology are cool God games)
So I'm planning to design an RPG game including Gods.

Game Name: Arena Of Gods
Game Type: MMORPG - (6vs6)
Game Camera: First person / Third person / Top down

Game itself:
Everyone knows the Olympic Games? Suppose the Gods are doing the Olympic Games as well. In the Arena of Rome.
Each player can choose a Greek God, which have their own special abilities ( example Zeus: Lightning ).
There are 2 bases in the arena for both teams at the beginning of the game. There is no respawn so teamplay is really needed to defend each other.
When you attack an opponent you gain Experience + Souls. Souls are used to buy items, armor, shields, damage, potions at your base.
Your God can level up through the Experience. The higher the level the more increased damage his abilities have.

That's all what I have for now. so what do you like of it so far? Should it be able to reach the market?
I'm not telling I want to create this game. It's just an idea and if it's good enough I want to spend time on this as free work. :)

Thanks for reading!
