teh internets Idea Contest!
It's a hard knock life on teh internets, and it's about to get crazier. I posted awhile ago an early development video of what I've done so far (see the earlier upcoming games thread here). I've done a lot of work on it since then and I promise I'll post more video soon (like, probably later this week). But in the meantime, I need more ideas for things in my game!
In short, teh internets WILL BE THE MOST EPIC GAME of the 21st century! You fly your trusty roflcopter through teh internets, interacting with various objects. Your roflcopter is full of lollerskaters, and you can collect more lollerskaters for extra lives. You're chiefly concerned with picking up lolcats, but teh internets is a dangerous place so you also have to dodge popup windows, not to mention the place is crawling with trolls! You get points for feeding them cheezburgers, but you have to be careful because there are different types of trolls. The average trolls get smaller with each cheezburger, the ruthless trolls get bigger with each cheezburger, and then there are flaming trolls who get huge when you feed them, and they shoot insults at you.
The game is falling into place very well. I'm envisioning the gameplay to end up being basically a lot like in Run!, where you try to survive teh internets for a period of time and at regular intervals a new object (internet meme) gets introduced to the mix. The problem is, I need more good ideas for game objects.
So here comes the contest. I have 10 promo codes with your names on them! (Technically I don't have them yet, but I will once the game is in the App Store.) Post your ideas for objects in this thread and if they're clever, I'll use them in the game. If I use your idea I'll make sure to save a promo code for you when the game is released. And to keep things interesting, I'm limiting it to 10 good ideas, and I'm ending the contest at the end of next week, so Friday Oct 23.
What are you waiting for? I'm sure you've all picked up a thing or two in your time roaming the mean streets of teh internets, so put your knowledge to good use! Post your ideas here.
