A few weeks ago I posted my LD32 entry, PLASMA, a prototype of a multiplayer mobile game where your unconventional weapon is your “plasmartphone”. It was a more a proof of concept than a game. I’m still working on it but here is a bit more playable version :)

How to play ?

  • Take you phone (Android, iOS, Windows Phone) with internet & GPS activated
  • Take a few friends with their phone (it’a multiplayer game)
  • Go outside, in a parc for instance, take your distances (10m at least) and start the battle !!!
  • Shake your phone to load, point you phone in another player direction & touch “Fire” to shoot

Warning !

  • This is still a prototype, I need feedbacks on every aspects of the game 😉
  • Compatibility : I’m trying to develop a multi-platform game using HTML5 (including geolocation & compass API), Google Map V3 API & FireBase, but some phones might not work well if they are a little old.

Not a game yet, but after 4 hours, I have an idea down and the main mechanic implemented.

Funny thing is, I was thinking about this game for the whole week. I was lucky that the theme fits the idea that I want to implement so perfectly.

So the idea is this: a top-down action game. Normal stuff: walls, enemies that shoot you, weapons. I was thinking about something a bit like the air combat of Xenonauts.

But here is the twist: the rooms and dungeons that you fight in are generated randomly, based on your geocoordinates! Is the current level too easy? Go to a nearby coffee shop and see if you can find something better. Need a green key? Somewhere in the way between your house and your supermarket, there may be a dungeon containing it.

Your world and the game world, connected.

Now to make that game happen!
