    Not many people post threads about ideas they had but I do so I made this thread :D for game ideas, even if no one else uses it I sure will ;)

    This thread is a place people can share ideas they had for game/parts of game or maybe for something else as long as it uses unity.

    Please dont steal any ideas posted hear, but if people do post here remember that they could be stolen.

    I will kick it off with an idea for a Pokémon-like game for phones and whatnot.

    The idea is that a terrorist group releases a group of genetically modified monsters to destroy the world and its your job to round them up, you would play as a young knight who just graduated from knight school and has just left for his first quest when you see a giant monster destroying the knight academy, your mentor tells you to go get help and he will go to try and stop it.

    you go to the monster lab which made the monsters you find there a tied up researcher who tells you what happened and once untied gives you a device to hold the monsters in but tells you that they must first be weekend and that a mere human cannot do it, but due to all the monsters being freed he only has one left which is a week one, instead of leveling up you would get different DNA strands that can give your monster added effects and ability’s.

    The graphics would be very similar to Pokémon HG/SS and D/P

    I have an old project and once I’m done my current project it will likely become this game ;)
    what do you think of the idea?

    I have a new game idear.. It free to take copy or whatever. Have enough idear already :)

    My idear target is young girls. Because it about horses.
    (Have a daugter)

    You start by creating your first horse. Different colors, hair, sadle.
    Start in a stable on a farm like place.

    You can groom, clean head, clean the horse at all fit on the horse.
    Go out on a field and ride around, and do whatever you want free style.
    Train with the ​​horse in a barn or field.
    Register for tournaments.
    Where to get points you need to do what a person say/write on screen.
    Go the right way with the horse, make 8 edges, circles, stops, Jumping over fences.

    The is some games that does 1 of this things but i hope for a more dynamisk gameplay and more.

    Those aren't in line with the great visions and dreams I had for that blockbuster idea :(

    Ok at least make in-app purchases, so you can buy additional fire hydrants and dust bins etc to wizzle on.

    This is one of a million ideas i have for a game:

    Name: Beyond the Darkness

    Game Type: FPS

    ESRB: Mature

    Story: Year 2039, NASA confirms that there will be a strange phenomenom which consists of the Moon blocking the Sun in a very unusual way, which makes sunlight completely dissapear from Earth for 1 year, electricity won't work, no internet, no signal for cellphones, you are an unactive US soldier named Dennis Reeve, 27 years old, the day this strange thing happens, scary dark looking creatures start falling from the sky, this things are referred as the "Blood Zombies" they are furry, dark hair, red eyes, big theet and have large wings, they look like bats, in human size, the thing is, Dennis' girlfriend gets kidnapped by the Blood Zombies leader, Thuhm, a normal looking person, he has grey skin and has a weird looking device in the back of his head, possibly something that controls him, anyway, Dennis gets into Area 51.9, a secret US base that has experience dealing with the Blood Zombies, they've taken this Area as their base on Earth, so, Dennis gets inside and tries to find her girlfriend Dina, then, he finds out that the Blood Zombies' originally are from the Moon, but not only that, they can control the Moon, they've used it to be able to get to planet Earth and get their revenge for being used as test subjects on area 51.9, because sunlight is their biggest weakness, when they get struck by sunlight, they melt. So, Dennis makes it to the control room and fighs Thuhm, and finds out he was the Area 51.9 man who worked as the group leader of Blood Zombies Test, his real name is Isaac Gould. Anyway, Dennis almost defeats Isaac, but then, the Thuhum escapes in a weird looking flying ship and gets lost, then, Dennis takes control of the Moon and makes it move away from the sun, the Blood Zombies melt and everyone is safe... for now.

    I considered making 3 or 4 games, i would also include online multiplayer and a Survival mode where you have to fight Blood Zombies hoards until you die.

    So, what do you think? Would you buy a game like this?

    I had an idea a few years ago that was inspired by an episode of Star Trek:TNG. In the episode, the Enterprise was badly damaged. The crew was separated (Picard in the elevator with children, Data and Riker down by engineering, etc). They had to solve various crises by working together even though they couldn't communicate with each other. Good episode.

    Anyway, I thought that was an interesting idea for a game. What if you were on a ship, and it was badly damaged. Most of the crew is dead. You have various environmental challenges to overcome and emergencies to fix (the engine core is overloading, can you prevent it from exploding? The orbit is unstable, can you get the systems back up enough to correct it? How do you put out the fires, cross areas in vacuum, get the lights on, etc). What if your damaged ship was boarded? That sort of thing. Kind of a player versus environment sort of deal.

    I even went so far as to write up a short treatise on it at one point. But I'm never going to make it. Far too many game ideas in my head in front of it :)

    My idea: mix Castlevania: Symphony of the Night gameplay and genre, with the combos system of UMvC3 and DmC(the old ones... and maybe the new one), with some level changes like in Contra 3 for the SNES.
    mmmmmm............

    I have a cool idea that spreads out into 4 "Books" and past that, but are really stories, there isnt really a written book but i have the whole story down. I kind of need help with the structure of the missions but i got the main plot points. Here is a written trailer i came up with, i guess:

    Book 02: United We Stand

    CollectionData_Subject00//Runeth//

    Subject 00 was captured 456 hour(s) following His previous escape. In accordance with the Emperor, Subject 00 has been locked away within maximum security levels. Subject demonstrates rapid cell regeneration; giving the Subject accelerated Healing Abilities with unparalled Stamina. The Subject also possesses genetic material considerably similiar to that of Subject Rien, the Emperor's Resolution to Immortality. ERROR! Unknown Bio-signature detected in the vicinity. Identify yourself, Human.
    "They call me, Runeth."
    //END TRANSMISSION//

    What do u think? theres alot more but this is in book 02, so sorry if u dont understand whats going on. But yea, there is 4 books for sure and they each have their own motto or theme:

    Book 01: Dawn Of a New Era
    -"There are two sides too every story- Light Dark"

    Book 02: United We Stand
    -"Can Friendships last Forever?"

    Book 03: Revelation
    -"True Friends will stand by your side, no matter what"

    In Book 04 I will let the majority of the community decide by voting for what path the story will follow from 3 different parallel universes, each with their own twist and unique ending. Thanks for reading lol i know this was a long post :)

    Not a game but an idea, A program that can dynamicly creat essays based on a topic and a book/other thing, how it works? well, there is a big database somewhere of essays and then you take them breaks them up takes ideas, word them differently and structure them differently then the program comes in(that would be done by employees, or buy a computer if you are good :D) it takes a book, then ideas based on the topic like say it is "In Gattaca society has moved beyond racial discrimination but have evolved to define people based on there genes" see, the program could pick out words(could just be a database of English teachers favorite words IE "powerfull") in this case they are "society, moved beyond, racial discrimination, define people, genes" by searching for these it will get all the information that it needs, then it can start making the essay... once it has made the essay it checks that the same essay has not been done recently or geographically close to the user.

    volla! a essay, ready to hand in the next day :p I'd of purchased this for lots of money and i'm sure other kids would as well.

    When I was a wee lad of 13ish, there was this awesome 3d shockwave vehicle versus game on Miniclip.com. I can't find it, I haven't been able to for years.

    But in it, you basically build start with a base of a vehicle with crappy weapons, crappy armor... all that stuff. You then fight against people online in 1v1 matches in an arena and kill them with your weapons. You do this to gain money and buy better weapons. Upgrade from a blade at the front of your vehicle to perhaps a buzzsaw or something. It was fantastically fun.

    I want to make a game like that but with tanks, and not just 1v1. There would be big free for all arenas, team maps and all that. Last man standing style for the game.

    You have a room mate, he has a job, you don't.

    Each level has you placed in a sandbox environment where you must sabotage your room mates ability to goto work before he wakes up.

    You must not get caught, you mustn't wake him up and you need to finish before he wakes up.

    When he awakes he will proceed to get ready and goto work, if he is unable, you win.

    Levels get harder, time limits get smaller, you start in different places in the sandbox environment etc.

    Reminds of a spinoff of the movie Pitch Black and Half Life game somehow. :) Pitch Black, which of course spawned the Riddick movie which is arguably one of the Best Sci Fi movies to date. Arguably that is.

    Parody game:
    Slender: The Eight Pornos!

    You play as a teenager in searching through some woods for eight porn magazines that are stapled to trees for some reason, but the creepy old man lurking about isn't making it easy.

    So here is one of my game ides:

    Genre: 3rd Person Sandbox Game


    It's the year 2417. You are [HERE COOL AMERICAN MALE NAME]. The world has changed. There are no woods on the planet anymore and the whole planet consists of cities. The cities are cut off from the outside world. It's like the German Democratic Republic - noboy can come in. Nobody can get out. It's a very dark future. The people who tried to escape were killed or arrested. The mankind now has a new planet to live, but only rich and famous people are able to pay the costs of the trip to the new planet.
    You are a recon of a secret US Army organisation with the missions is to prevent people escaping from the cities. Your father was a soldier too but he died in a terrorist attack on one of the presidents of the United countries of the old World (UCOW). One day you had a mission in the sahara. Poeple wanted to escape from africa to paris. In paris is one of the 3 world portals to the new world. It's a huge gate with a laser transmitter. The mission was an ambush and many of your mates at the army died. You tried to contact your base but nobody answered and you nearly died.
    When you woke up you escaped with one other soldier to your base where one of the terrorist leader and your commander were. He said that you'd have to actually die. He explains how the UCOW want to control the whole old world and the rebels has to be killed in order to ensure that control. Nobody of the soldiers know that. Your friend and the commander get into a fight and you escape. From this point you want to take revenge and overthrow the UCOW to save the world...

    Sorry for my bad english grammar. :( I live in Germany and I'm still learning the language.

    KHopcraft, are you talking about Robot Rage? It was removed from MiniClip in 2008, but is still playable at that link. I remember playing that back in the early 2000s.

    Edit: never mind. it no longer can be played.

    A game that hooks up to the player with electrodes and shocks the player for making mistakes until the player develops super human reflexes and problem solving skills. Then the player is assimilated into a drone and brings the game to other people to play.

    Here's a great idea :)

    Imagine a game that plays like this game but instead of what is used we use these it would sort of look like this lol but with less lasers or campness.

    Well anyone interested lol?

    I'm working on one like that right now. Exploring what makes "non-combat" games fun and basically taming and riding animals is what I ended up with.

    For the dog peeing I had a game idea similar but you're a cat and your attack is spraying a cloud from your butt, then you have to patrol your block marking your territory and fend off some dogs. lol
