Want to suggest/request a game idea?

Postby IrrelevantComment » Sat Jan 12, 2013 3:51 pm

Thought I'd compile a list of advice for anyone wanting to suggest or request game ideas.

  • There are loads of people with ideas and few people who can actually implement them - remember that your chances of anyone choosing to implement your idea are quite low
  • Rather than let no. 1 discourage you, instead focus on making your idea more appealing.
  • Maximise your target audience. What I basically mean here is try not to make your idea target a very specific group of people by choosing an obviously specific fetish. Given the nature of the site, you can obviously get away with furry stuff, but if you pick something like impregnation be wary of throwing off potential developers.
  • Think it out. Don't give us one line of a vague concept that's been done plenty of times. Describe a well thought out concept with details of how the game would play.
  • Make it novel. If something is unoriginal or overdone, there are few people who would want to do it. If it is similar to something already being created here, then consider offering suggestions to the creator rather than trying to start a rival project
  • OFFER A DAMN MECHANIC. This is more of a personal one than one I think everybody would agree to, and maybe stems from how I view games and game development. Suggesting a specific IP or character is of absolutely no benefit to me whatsoever. Suggesting a sexual interaction between characters or a fetish is of no benefit to a game. Katsuo's sig contains some very wise words: "Don't create a porn game if you're only interested in porn." A porn game is a type of game, and a game is nothing without an underlying game mechanic, no matter how much sex or how many characters are in it. No, a slideshow is not a game.

well, I was thinking in maybe a game with all the characters the team made so far, a game similar to the mario is missing or LoK, but instead of the normal "bosses" like the koopa family you'll have to fight the characters already made by all of you, i think it would be interesting to see some final cat fights followed by some "good action" (IYKWIM), and that way everyone's work would be acknowledged and will appear in one single game...

what do you think... o.O

Well I think that you should not post your game idea, into a thread that tells you how to submit game ideas while ignoring most of the advices of the "how to post your game idea" thread. :|

and btw combining everything would make the art styles of different creators clash (not good). Not everyone is using the playshapes models as an base.
1 game (oh I mean story slideshow -_-) and 5 flash loop FINISHED...fuck yea

Sorry, Charmdler. We get a lot of ideas in this forum, and you can probably see how many of those ideas were turned into games (only the ones which were turned into games by the people who had them).

Most people on the forum have lost patience with people who only post ideas, namely because they have more ideas of their own that they haven't implemented, and don't have time or energy to implement the many ideas that are posted. That's why I stick to constructive feedback.

I think to make idea come true people have to get respect of other people, if so - the game will be made.

What do i mean - some body draw good, so he post hes art and some body see it and say wow !!! It is cool - who is this girl - may be it is possible to make a game with it. It is possible that a lot of people who likes that art and its creator try to make the game and they make it. Or some times do not.

Or for example some good novel - that is popular and a lot of people read or see it - for example i do not know Alice in the wonderland, Metroids and etc.
It creates a group of people who are interesting in one idea and can work together.

Even some not professional picture for example can have an idea that can motivate more than 1000 words. Becouse it looks funny for example. You see it and think - lol it is funny may be i can make some thing with it and some times it works :mrgreen:

Just for example when i see picture in attachment i decided to make prunk on some kind of games (yes i know it is not perfect but i think that it is a little funny :mrgreen: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=2968):

So as you can see it is question of motivation and peoples who will make it. If people have free time and like some thing have performance to make some thing they will may be do it :mrgreen:

For example on Gorepete :mrgreen: - he has his own idea, programming and art+animation abilities so he can do it himself.

Some peoples have not art / animation or programming abilities - so the idea have to be funny and interesting for all of them to motivate and make something. And it have to be easy to understand. May be i am wrong - but it is only my opinion so :roll: I am not pretend on new idea of new worlds order, i only say that some times it can work some times does not :mrgreen:

I already suggest this idea about all characters and making some kind of one big LoK world but it does not get accustomed :roll: :mrgreen:

The answer is not single-valued. Some times ago i test some algoritms that can work for that purpose - and it works. The same algoritm is now working on my site. I can manipulate any part of it - take values from any flash on it so it is possible.

But yes another probem that it have to have a lot of people work to make some thing like that - and may be it even have to be the same AS version (I test only AS3 fo not test AS2)- comunication to send and get correct values from each flash and etc.

So for now yes it is more easy to say - becouse for projects like that it have to be a lot of people interested in project and very good communication :mrgreen:

And if even do not talk about a lot of people working on project - we already have problems in communication - becouse UTC problems / no global idea / Language barrier and etc :mrgreen: Even in team work it is problems some times becouse of it. But for global projecs it is work teams with teams - it is even impossible to make for one team i think (if there are not 50+ people in it :lol: )

All I can say is, you will most likely don't get anyone interested in making your idea in to a product, if you can't offer any help. You also need to be able to help in a way that many other can't. Anyone can write a story, anyone can share ideas and anyone can play-test a product. Of course, when it comes to story, there is always people who can do it a lot better than others, but anyone can put words on a paper one way or another. If the story is just a few sentences, then that is fine because many games, especially porn game doesn't require anything deep. It can always be nice to have something, but again, not required to make a game.

If you can either draw, animate or program, then you can provide something that is a lot more useful to get someone interested in helping you out. I'm not just talking about things such as stick men, a two frame animation, or a programmed play button. It have to be something some what decent for anyone to use it, and that is what is different between the things above. If you can't do any of that, and you say that you "have no talent", as I have seen many say, then just try to learn something before request. No one gained talent out of no-where, people learned these different things, and so can you if you try.

Don't create a porn game if you're only interested in porn.

It must have taken me 3 months to figure out a string was in java. Must have taken me 6 months for me to make simple programs. If anyone doesnt have talant on this forum it's me. That being said I am the best programmer on the forum. Every one loves my games and I'm the greatest!

I had an idea about making a smartphone LOK app, specifically more for iphone users. I used to program and design iphone apps so I have knowledge of how to do. I thought it would be a kickass idea, what do you guys think?

So CoC has a android version and well i'd never use it on my phone. I personally don't want to risk some one finding it or some other odd thing. That being said if for some reason i did want to play LoK on my phone then i wouldn't know what to do and i'd likely try to get the normal SWF file running on my phone only to learn that it doesn't work that way.

Basically if you have the skill and you want to do it, go for it! I just wouldn't uses it normally.
May i suggest a password system? Maybe requiring two passwords: one made by you that's vary easy, and one made by the user which could be blank. If the person doesn't know both passwords then it wont show anything that could lead some one into thinking it's porn.

A made AS 3 version of LoK to test it for that purpose - what can i say. It lags when it is in swf (its size is less then 2 mb) - so it will not work as apk with out optimization. I have such a fact - you can optimize size or speed. If you optimize speed - you get more size, for example you can get 100% speed but your game will growe to 50 mb may be.

Or you can make it small like 2 mb and it will it all CPU - this is flash restriction on optimization :mrgreen:
Android apk i test on some of my old stuff - with Adobe Air.
But there are a lot of apk for androids that are even more then 100+ mb so yes it is possible.

Foe apple i do not know - i do not like them so even do not test it in this OS :mrgreen: :roll:

By the way BlueLight - why do not you like to learn flash ? :mrgreen:

Because i'm a snob that crashed and burned when he tried to learn Flash. That and i just dislike aspects of it. Add to the fact that flash software is the slowest for me.

I already have a basic idea of how I would do it and I know it can work. I just wonder how it will run on an iphone. I'll maybe make a basic test app first to see how it runs.

Could you cut down file size by re designing the models to take into account that phones have smaller screens?

To my knowledge yes. But I would basically redesign the game from scratch for it to be even able to run on the smartphone. I don't think converting a game straight into an iphone app would work, so basically I would be making a completely new LOK game.

I could also make it compatible with ipad.
