Hi all,

I am searching on internet from many days for some new game concepts but I am not get something which is exciting and really inspires me.

I am not searching for any specific game genre.

If any one knows where to search then help me to find the same.

If you find a game concept by googling it, is it still new ?

Yes it is...

Because I just don't copy the concepts but take inspiration from many games and combine all together to make a new game.

So if you are aware of any thing then do share.

I think many game concepts have already been covered.  Maybe what you should do is take a concept and come at it from a different perspective or approach.  There are many Sci-fy games like Star Wars - . What makes them different is their Story.  Take an old game, re-design it to make it your own.  Change the story, location and the goal and you will have essentially a new concept.

The best way to come up with ideas for games is to play games.  While playing a game, think about what YOU would have done to make it better or a feature that you think you could improve on.

 

Another popular thing these days are reboots of older games.  What was your favorite game as a kid?  I liked a game called Fantasy Empires that had a lot of original ideas in it.  There hasn't really been a game like it since it came out in 1993.  I think a modernized version would be awesome.

 

I also have ideas for games based on books, movies, or tv shows.  Want to create an RPG?  Read some fantasy novels.  A zombie game?  Read World War Z.

 

You can't really search for inspiration, it just sort of happens when you are least expecting it.
