Yesterday I went to bed in peace because I have already settled with a game idea and I’m now ready yo start working on it.
If you didn’t read it (and you are too lazy to do it now) it was basically to help the ESC key to escape from the F1..F12 keys by opening doors, avoiding those where a F* key resides and opening the ones where a regular “friendly” key is.
However, now I realize that the keyboard theme was basically because when I first thought of the idea, you would have to press on your keyboard whatever key was on the room you just opened but after I simplified the idea to use only ESC and ENTER to interact with the rooms, I’m no longer attached to the whole keyboard concept.
So, I would like to know what you people feel would be more fun? passing through doors where keyboard keys help you escape (unless it’s an evil Function key that catches you) or having the characters be anything else but keys? (like silhouettes or whatever I can think of) and throwing away the whole keyboard theme.
