Looking for ideas

Recommended Posts

I am coding a 3D outdoor game engine at the moment, but with no real idea what type of final game to put it in. Does anybody have a suggestion for an outdoor 3D game idea they''ve been wanting to see implemented? He who said money was the root of all evil knew little of the nature of money and less about the nature of man.

You know what I''d like to see?

Discus throwing, except they use people instead of discs

Maybe you could make a shooter out of it.

You''re from Alaska? How bout outdoor curling? Seriously though, you should narrow things down by choosing a specific genre, like sports, platform, 1st/3rd person shooter, etc.

What could be more boring than outdoor curling?

The only boring sport i''ve seen put into a game was Elf Bowling, where you play shuffleboard using santa''s elves in thongs

I''d like to see some 3rd person adventure/puzzle or something. The old days of adventure-games are gone (except for ugly simon 3D). I''d play it anyway

Cow Tipping - you could even have levels where you start off with dogs or something smaller. As you advance in levels the heft of the ''tippie'' gets heavier.

Bonuses for knocking a bovine down a hill, into others (sort of like down-hill bowling), into dangerous machinery, wiping out farm houses, etc..

Could also open up some multiplayer competitive / co-op possibilities. Rival farms, where you sneak to each other''s farms and tip over their cattle. Bonuses for wiping out the water tower with a bovine avalanche careening down a hill, etc..

I like the dwarf-throw idea.. you could encorporate that by being some sort of special power up where you have to catch the dwarf first and then hurl him/her at the unsuspecting bovine for additional bonuses.

i like that recent one.

Also, for those who misuderstood me, i think Elf Bowling is one of the funniest games made. Graphics are terrible and gameplay is boring, but seeing elves wearing nothing but thongs and red santa hats is hilarious. Its a popular game at my school (7th 8th grade). Another graphics and gameplay empty game that is fun for quite a while is Snowcraft, where you control 3 kids and throw snow balls from bunkers at the neighbor kids.

speaking about off the wall game ideas, here''s one:

Disease RTS: real time strategy between army of bacteria and person''s immune system. The bacteria leader could breed different kinds of bacteria and viruses and the immune system leader could breed white blood cells, antibiotics and other drugs. heh
