Who wants to make a game about the war in Syria?

Looking to build a team or have a job to offer?

I was thinking that we could make a game like Castlevania about the war in Syria. The reason is that the USA wants to invade because they want to install a pipeline called the...(wait for it)...Kirkuk-Banias Pipeline

Here's what it looks like:


We can call the game Kirkukbania and make the logo all Castlevania-like

Anyway, i figured that we could raise awareness about this new oil-grabbing war with a quick and fun game. We can make it a community effort.

We could use the map like in Castlevania and show it after every stage, going from Banias right to the source at Kirkuk or viseversa. We can make the protagonist be an oil-guy trying to conquer the territory to build the pipeline or a guy that is fighting the pipeline. I like the oil-guy idea, that way we can do goofy stuff like have an Oil Barrel act as the Holy Water, a Contract act as the Cross Boomerang and a Roll of Cash act as the Chicken

Enemies would include Iraqi soldiers and insurgents, Mesopotamia and Babylonian themed stuff and anti-war protesters with signs or something. Saddam could be a boss. Then repeat the same when entering Syria, but Assad would end up playing Dracula, but the hard version, not the One Hit K.O. version.

I don't program, but i can take time to put the game together in Construct as well as design the levels and stages, item drops and enemies, etc. I can also purchase Construct2 licenses for whomever is working on this. This would be a free game since the whole point of the game is to raise awareness for the real reason they are pushing for this war; the Kirkuk-Banias Pipeline.

So, what do you guys think?

I don't think this is the correct place for such a discussion and regardless of the reasons for what is happening in Syria, I personally don't think anything political/religious or so highly contentious etc should be on here as it only leads to disagreements.zenox982013-09-06 16:35:09
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

yhea, the wrong place to ask for that, you are not asking for help, you are looking for feedback to continue going forward with this project.

Write a Game Design document, google wikipedia for game design document and you find a good template, then come back here and I'm sure you can find some people who are interested in making your game

I agree that this is probably the wrong section to post this, however I think there's nothing wrong with making a controversial game to raise awareness of important issues.
