Let’s do this…

I have a few game ideas for Beneath The Surface, but they all need a little more thought before a game will come of them…

My first instinct is to go for a water based game, either taking place under the water, or just on top and the major threat is just under the surface…

If I go this path, I want to have a PC that is not a human based character – No diver, no subs – so I would have to go with a fish…
Perhaps this fish is tired of living beneath the surface, and wants to escape, which the player helps with by guiding them through levels, evolving the fish, and getting them out.
Some sort of “Thomas Was Alone” story game, just without the awesome voice over.

My hardest idea is probably more suited to a jam team: A Film Noir point and click murder mystery adventure, where there is something more sinister going on Beneath The Surface.
This would need good writing, good art, and a fair bit of programming to get the game working… I really only have time for one of those things…

Or, some sort of underground exploration game, 2D side scroller perhaps, where the player is looking for something – a cure for a disease, or maybe the source – and it can only be found underground…

 

We shall see… It is time for a shower to wake up properly, and let the subconscious do its job for a while…

I’ll be using Phaser for this entry, Photoshop for any art, and audacity for sound…
