Thoughts on Theme

This theme is definitely very weak because it’s far too open for interpretation. “One Screen” is an incredibly vague idea.

The thing that comes to my mind is “hey. this is a perfectly valid excuse to do a neat pacman clone just to say you’ve done that in javascript even if it’s not really unique.” I’m trying to think of ways I can innovate or do something neat with one screen, or if there are any cool game ideas that I have. My plan is thus: try cloning PacMan in JavaScript, see what you learn in that exercise, deconstruct it, and see what you can do with that knowledge. Do Space Invaders, do Pong, do basic things so that I can learn how to manipulate physical entities using code.

The most unique idea that’s occurring to me and the one I keep thinking about is an Odyssey simulator. Give the player an interface that looks like an old-timey TV and give them the various screen shades – football, tennis, etc. – and let them play all sorts of different kinds of games using that ‘one screen’ with all the screen shades. I think that might be cute??

    damn well I guess we better scrap the theme for everyone because you don’t think it’s good

  2. gosh I was just being critical jeez just because i don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s not a valid theme. i just don’t like it and i’m not gonna pretend to.
