I got this game idea into my head but I probably wont get around to making it quite yet, cause of school and stupid things like that.
Here is my idea: There is a sort of galaxy and in the galaxy are solar systems. You start on a planet in a solar system on the outer edge of the galaxy and have to work your way to the center of the galaxy by colonizing planets.
I know this sounds a lot like No Man’s Sky but I think doing this game in 2D and actually having some decent game-play will be cool.
So, you start on a planet and you get, say, 5 ships to start with. You then gotta use your mouse to click and drag (like a slingshot) to shoot each ship off to the other planets. I could also make gravity factors so that the ship paths can be altered by nearby planets. Once a ship hits a planet, a colony is built there.
Here is the iffy part. I’ll probably have to make enemy AI colonizing ships against which the player must compete so that they do not colonize all the planets before them.
I will also have different ships with different flying and colonizing characteristics that get unlocked after a certain amount of planets have been colonized.
Like I said before, I probably wont be able to start on this game for a while but I will create some sketches &c. so that this thread doesn’t stay too bare.
