I swear to god I've played a game like this before...I play it every year...darn it, I can't remember what it's called! I doubt anyone else will know what I'm talking about though, it's not extremely successful or anything...

Another game I'm dying for is a civilization mmo where you start from the ground up.Start off as a peasant in another mans kingdom and work your way up as a warrior! Earn fame and glory, from fighting in battles between kingdoms (start off as a pawn in the front lines and work your way up to controlling your own battalion.) To taking on dangerous quests such as challenging dungeons. And use the fame and glory to gain followers, buy weapons, armor(and not just for you but your followers as well) And eventually,set out on a adventure to a new land where you can build your own kingdom or kill the current king and steal his thrown!(will effect your morality, also success greatly depends on the citizens opinions of the king)From here you start off small building your defenses,resources,army,etc. Hell even establishing a economy(import, export, the whole 9 yards).As a king the people of your land are always looking up to you for guidance or even to handle disputes how you handle them will define you and your kingdom.(fearsome king,scumbag king, strategic king, lovable king, etc.Depending on how you choose to run your kingdom will change how people view you.It can be your saving grace or even open up doors to your demise )As you grow, new players might come an settle in your kingdom such as you settled in another mans kingdom so long ago, how you treat them is up to you. They can be your greatest allyor your most hated enemy in the future.Wars can be fought in many different ways, such as assassination, sabotage, espionage, and my favorite the slash an gash.Battles will have a cofc type of overview where you can direct your troops,and on top of that the ability to join the battle on any front that needs you to take full control of the battlefield. Im only scratching at the surface here on what i want done but i feel like itll be too overwhelming to players if i add too much. MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Deflect Effect

A cross between Pong and a bullet hell shooter. You control each paddle with a thumb and must bounce your bullet back and forth as waves of enemies appear. Enemies will have various effects on your bullet and paddles, and missing the bullet cost a life. Lose too many lives and it's game over

Some enemies will be shielded, requiring multiple hits to defeat, or can only be attack from certain sides. Some may have anti gravity fields that reverse/alter the course of your bullet or warp across the screen, taking your bullet along. Some might leave corpse barriers behind or even effect the size and speed of your paddles

On the flip side, you can also gain special attributes and abilities for your bullets. These may range from energy trails that leave enemy damaging lasers in your wake, to magnetic paddles and slow motion, to turning your bullet into a multi-enemy cleaving saw-blade.

Graphics would combine Pong's/Space Invader's retro style with colorful flashy ability effects

Ark would be a 2D sidescroller in the graphic style of Home or Lone Survivor. Gameplay wise, it would be a Metroidvania-style story driven sci-fi game focused on exploration and discovery, with a tone and atmosphere inspired by movies like Pandora and Moon. No platforming, or combat, maybe some light logical puzzle solving. It would be set on Ark IV, an interstellar generation ship traveling to mankind's new home.

Each playthrough, the player would awaken as a new randomly generated character, and you only have one goal: travel to the control room, check the ship logs, perform a diagnostic scan, and then return to your stasis pod. Complete that and your playthrough is over. You only have a limited time to complete this task before a biological failsfe kicks in and you black out

But it's not that simple. There's an entire ship to explore, and as you explore, your maps is filled in. Leave it behind for the next awakee to find because if you black out, the next person will have to locate and retrieve the map from the spot where you fainted

Exploring the ship would reveal a number of different stories, from the reasons of why we left Earth to the darker mysteries of Ark IV...like why exactly are you programmed to black out. There would be no dialogue or text boxes, stories would be told through the environment and atmosphere. There may even be random events that pop after certain intervals of awakenings, like another stasis pod opened and empty, or the diagnostic scans detecting a foreign presence onboard the ship.
