Hey guys - just wanted to let you know, I'd appreciate it if nobody stole my game idea here, as that would be annoying and quite upsetting seeing as it came completely from my mind and not yours.

 

Anyways, I need help with a seriously basic game. There's no controlling a player with keys or anything. This will be my first proper indie game developed, I've made others but never published them but I'm planning to publish this one. I'm a teenager starting GCSE computing. We're being taught a coding language called Python. However, I'm planning to release this game, so I don't want people to have to download Python and Pygame just to play it.

 

The basic idea is you watch a Nyan Cat. For ever 1 minute you get 10 coins, for every click on the nyan cat you get 1 coin. You spend these coins on nyan cats, backgrounds and music. You can share the time you've been watching your cat on social networks. That's the really basic idea, but if it hits quite a success, as it is a popular meme, of course I'll work on improvements.

 

I'm really new to coding, any help is welcome and will be highly appreciated. If you did help, I'll be sure to add you to credits of game. Thanks! :)

This reminds me of that cookie clicking game.
A totally unserious game, but still cleary made with an odd form of love for the cookie.

 

You indeed need to specify what sort of help you're looking for though.
Either way good luck with that goofy cat!

Don't even try to make money of a foreign IP... just as DiegoSLTS said, the Nyan Cat creater has a history of hunting down infringement, but even without that, I would stay away.

 

Some people get away with releasing free-to-play titles infringing popular IPs (there was a big Naruto web game in Germany some years ago, it was not commercial though)... but even that, depending of whose IP you infringe, is a bad idea and can cost you lot of money.

 

 

Just come up with an original idea, and you will be fine.

 

 

As to the game idea... cow clicker. So click, much fun. Wow!

 

But I am pretty sure you will find enough fans of such a "game" ;)

Has WonderSpud ever come back and clarified what kind of help is being requested?

Looks like he was last active when he started this thread.
