Game Plot/Story Idea?

Postby Shadow » Mon Jun 28, 2010 9:04 am

k, well my friend over in new Zealand is making a 2D game, and he needs story/plot ideas. If ya need to talk to him personally he has XFire, so add him at tricon2elf.

He needs these ideas by 2 weeks, he's interested in this site, but he can't stand text-based rpg's he prefers game rpg's. HOWEVER, it would mean a lot to us both if you could help us out, since I have no imagination WHATSOEVER. =D

Hmmm....... you play as a space marine who is sent out to fight off a legion of giant bugs, aliens with lasers, and giant space worms. You can fight in both your ship and on foot. When you are on foot, you can pick up enemies' weapons and when in space, you will recieve power ups from destroying the worms.

Sound good?

Rather cliche, but it works.

Forgot to mention that =D It's a 2D adventure. he's got the player model done collison and a few other things, but he has no story, so I told him about RPGTopia and he asked for ideas since we have all these RP's and Ewars etc etc.

Hello I'm Tricon2_Elf

Ok he didn't really word it correctly. I'm making a game as a test of my skills of programming and and i don't want to make a crappy one with no storyline or anything i want to make a fully done game but it has to be 2D currently i have collision working and its movement style is like of Pokemon or Zoids on Game boy it has no features at the present moment other than you can walk around it has animation of the player and that collision is working im hoping for an idea of which to base this on and also i do have a player sprite but a new one is going to be made i currently have someone who will create the sprites for me and 'Shadow' here said this site would be great to harvest ideas for this game. I wish it to be a adventure and have a separate fighting style not like Zelda the Four Swords but like Final Fantasy and Zoids.

So long sentence short: A 2D adventure game which involves a separate fight style
And can you refrain from using ideas as said before by 'Godzilla Forever'
Also if i don't like the ideas ill just make my own :P

A good story needs these basic ideas: Introduction to the plot, problem or conflict encountered, rising tension as the characters try to figure out the problem/solve the mystery, and a nice big climax, where they
a) find something/reveal some secret, and solve the problem
or
b) leave you hanging, and open to sequels
