Honestly I don't think that there are really many ideas around which are worth stealing. We are talking about rudimental game ideas, not the business plan for the next Facebook :-)

Nah, plenty of great Ideas everywhere. Sometimes, something that doesn't seam like anything original or worthwhile, can be a missing piece of your own idea.

Another idea: Squirrel survival game.

Ive read in a couple places lately that 'you shouldn't be afraid to put your ideas out there..' , reason being that you get useful feedback from showing off your project, and anyway people are too busy working on their own projects to be interested in stealing other people's ideas...

Personally I have mixed feelings. I think feedback is definitely useful, but it almost feels like you're giving away the golden goose by sharing all your artwork ideas and game concepts in 'post what you're working on' -type threads.. my 2c



Yea it could go both ways. I am not saying share all of what you're doing until the game is ready for launch. unless of course you aren't going to sell it, then it doesn't matter. But obviously you will have to share with some people like testers, and other people that you have demo the game or else you may be making a game nobody thinks is fun.

So there will be lots of guns, martial arts, and blood. You will go up different hotel floors or apartment complex floors, havent decided on the theme yet.

Or another theme will be you are a Marine invading a bunker in Afghanistan and are trying to get Osama as you go down further in the bunker there will be suicide bombers and have to break up the terrorist cells and leaders as you progress...I have probably a year to go, but I am excited for this, if it turns out anything like I envision it to be could be cool.


I love The Raid, just saw the new one and it was freaking awesome!



Sweet, I haven't seen the new one yet, looks amazing though. If this game is done right could be sweet, I'm talking about a pixelated art style and throw in some unique ideas I have with that martial arts. Hopefully in the next couple months I will post a demo

I have some ideas, and some of them are original ideas (I think), gameplay mechanics etc

but I'm not able to make any kind of graphics (absolut zero skill on visual arts!) and that is killing me
