Game Idea!

Posted by Alert Games on March 18, 2010, 8:56 p.m.

new project i will be working on:


(yes i used to work on a scrolling shooter with this name, but this will be free-roam non-scrollingshooter-like)

IT IS KINDA GENERIC, but i dont see many online ones. One flash version was made kinda like it(but simpler) but it died with little activity.

Which I will need some help with. Its a relatively simple concept, but i think will be a success if quality work goes into it.

2 on 2, 4 on 4 or free for all matches with ships of your choosing! Matches can be objective or just deathmatches. You fire the ships primary and secondary weapons. You can also gain power ups either on the playing field or after a certain number of kills.

Matches will gain you XP, in which you can buy more parts to build your own ship with weapons of your choosing. Then you can face off with friends and other players with your own ships.

Heres a pic of my shitty spriting skills. but itll be fine for testing.

I got this idea of making it multiplayer when my friend was playing a scrolling shooter with simple gameplay, but simple almost shaded, vector-like graphics. Im thinking, not only could i make my own version, but why not multplayer?

So, good idea? Thoughts?

Also, ideas?

When I hear "free-roam," I immediately think of a very large world/space you can explore. How you could possibly fight two or three other players in such a large space is beyond me.
