Platformer Ideas

Recommended Posts

For the past month or so I've been working on a 2D version of the game portal. It was a lot of fun at first, but I'm getting bored of it, I think the problem is I'm just not a huge fan of the game portal. I'll probably finish it up, but I'm starting to think of ideas for my next project. I definitely want to do a platformer, they are my favorite to play and I have the most experience in making them, but I'm not sure exactly what to do. I definitely want some sort of creative aspect that makes it different and enjoyable. I want something that is a bit challenging to make, but nothing that is too ambitious, I want to make sure I can finish it. I'm also leaning towards a medieval/fantasy theme.

 

Here are some games I really like that sort of show the style of game I'd be going for.

Realistically, you should come up with your own design. Most beginners/novices, and even some advanced developers go for a design (or influence), but the best games always come from the heart. Cheesy, I know, but sit and think about a design. It doesn't have to be completely original.

 

For example, imagine a game which was influenced by Mario, played like Elder Scrolls, combat like Street Fighter, and a story like Deadly Premonition. Sure, those are ideas from other games, but put together.... Is there even a game light it out there?

 

Bingo! New design :)
