Needed Idea for challenge

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Mon Mar 06, 2017 2:47 am

I feel that I am fairly good with the whole c2 thing... I have one problem though. I have no idea of what I should do. I need a challenge such as a (game type) in (time limit) or something along those lines. If you have any Ideas please let me know. I would love to be able to make something else and refine what I already have but I have no ideas for future games. :?: 8-)

You can do a game jam, there will be the Bad Box Art challenge on gamejolt starting the 24 march. (ends the 27 march)
You can find a cause you want to make people aware of with a game. this game is about chicken food

Or you can do a space shooter in one week, with 3 levels and a final boss. Put a version available on the web, the scirra Arcade for example.
You won't earn money, nobody will play it but you will have a finished game.
Repeat the steps 100 times and Hideo Kojima will call you to ask advice for the Metal Gear space shooter for the Iphone 85.

I know. Create a Giant Segmented Winged Dragon Coiled up Dog Turd version of Flappy Bird where the obstacles are a bunch of Match-3 Blocks and Zombies.

You're not the troll here, I guess.
The game Fast Food isn't far away from the cover but still the cover is weird.

"When in doubt use Global Variables." I agree. :D

Depends on your definition of "Trolling" I guess.
In this case I think he's really just uninspired and looking for ideas from someone else.

I've done a bit of trolling myself about 7 or 8 years ago. Trolling used to be an art.
Deliberate misdirection; Leaving people in a heated argument among each other.
Ah those were the good old days...

These days anything can be considered 'trolling', from a person (none-deliberately) being ignorant to expression of an unpopular opinion to simply disagreeing with someone else to spreading hate. That last one has to be the lowest form of things people consider 'trolling.'
I just went off the rails.

Anyway, OP, to answer your question, try playing some free games online. The ones from Gamejolt/Itchio/Kongregate heck maybe try some of those abandoned games in the Arcade...
These usually contain great ideas that haven't been implemented for mass appeal yet.

Agree

to OP

easiest way to find ideas, 1 what Mr Plant said, play different games.

easiest then that while you play games, set a goal in your mind, or on paper, similar to "category of game i want to make", "my target towards my dream game" "must have zombies, turrets, naked aliens, upgrades, lots of upgrades ,etc" you got the idea.

without a target set you wont get anywhere.

youl probably get ideas ... but they'll end up dumped cause you will want to try all of them. stick with 1 then when your finished with that move to next 1. and then youl be finding a way to get the best ideas out of each context in every days actions. like poor water from a glass can be a 5 minutes game. breathing air. avoid eating flying while you bike riding etc etc.


also i like to place my games in a targeted order:

Find 1 idea online or brainstorming and mold it to your needs, even improve one already existing game.

Sketch of game idea on paper or text editor.

Elements/graphic assets/sounds(creation or placeholders till u get something original)

GUI/HUD(user interface and game overall look)

Gameplay(here we fill in the game idea)

Optional Features(upgrades/purchases etc)

Optimization - make game run faster/gameplay be more natural/

Polishing - polish mistakes in coding,assets etc.

Release - YAY!

Next project!



OR scrap all i said and just go here 49 ideas for games.
