OK so the theme is “Alone” (you probably know that).
So here are my thoughts after 1 hour of waking up/brainstorming:
- Survival horror, rather obvious but it’s still my #1 idea. It might be a lot of fun to create. I can make ZBrush zombies and monsters which I love to do But a decent 3D environment takes a lot of time and I’ll probably end up with a not very polished game (as usual).
- SETI. Find out if you’re alone in the universe. Nice but what would the gameplay be like? All I can think of is rather simulationy and GUI heavy which is not my style. (or shmup, now that you’ve found life, exterminate it! )
- “Home alone” themed tower defense. Might be fun
- Dating sim / visual novel. But I don’t have the right skill set for that (my drawings are horrible)
So I guess I’ll get started on the survival horror to avoid getting stuck doing nothing.
