Feedback on idea?

Hey guys, first off, I will not be making this game. Anyone has the right to use this idea, I just wanted to see what people thought of it, because I like to think of ideas like this (I'm weird :P.) Anyway, here's how it goes. Mark's life is going down the drain. He just got laid off, he's becoming an alcoholic, and his wife divorced him. So recently, he's become obsessed with lucid dreaming (knowing that your dreaming, controlling it) to get away from his everyday life. Soon he starts seeing a weird entity in his dream. It's a creature, and it feels like it's stalking him. Even though he tries to get rid of it, it won't go away (even though it's in his dream.) Soon, he starts seeing it in his everyday life. Now Mark has even bigger problems. Half of the time, he can't tell if he's dreaming or awake, not to mention the entity is following him, watching...

What do you think of the idea? Like I said, I'm not using it, so you can if you feel like it.

Sorry, just thought it might work good in a game.

Not a problem with that, don't worry ^^
I'm just reminding that a story is not a game, but using that to make a good game mechanic out of it is perfectly possible.

it's a cool idea... in the past I was very interested in out of body experiences and lucid dreaming. I think it's something that attracts a lot of people but probably we are so overhelmed by daily life that we don't have time to study such topics.

thumbs up anyway, maybe someone will develop it?

I wish someone would do it. I would, but I'm very busy with my own project right now.

It could be an First Person Adventure game like Slender, Amnesia (2011), SCP08, JuOn, Night Of Sacrifice...
Or it could be a First Person Survival Horror game like Penumbra, SCP Containment Breach, 1916 Der Unbekannte Krieg...
Or it could be a Third Person Survival Horror like Lone Survivor, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Siren...
Or it could be a Point-and-Click Adventure like Being One, Silent Hill Mobile, Monkey Island, The Walking Dead...
Or it could be an RPG Maker game like The Witch's House, Miserere...
Or it could be a Text Adventure like, Amnesia (1987), AnchorHead, Save Merlin The Pig...
Or it could be an Audio Adventure game for blind players...
Or it could be a Board Game...
