I have had many ideas through the years but it was only last night through a half dream that I shot out of bed and thought to myself that is actually a brilliant idea for a game and I want to play it now!. I am going to write this idea here for two reasons.
1, theres a chance a game developer could read it and start making it so I might be able to play it in 5 years
2. I want to see if im deluded in case its not a good idea at all, in either way I would like to state to any game developing company out there that I do not want any intellectual rights to this idea and I pass any ownership to the idea to the company that makes it and all I want in return is a free copy when its finished. Here is the idea.
It is a zombie apocolypse, now before you moan and exit the web page let me tell you why in this very busy setting how this will stand out from the rest.
You start off as a group of survivers surrounding a run down shack in the middle of the countryside. You are armed with basic weaponds and zombies are all around you. With you is a team of AI builders which while your are takeing out the zombies starts building a chain link fence around the shack. This takes time as you defend but once its build you can shoot from inside the fence as the fence can take damge over time and need maintenence. While this is happerning you also need other people to go fetch food and water and first aid ect. As soon as the fence is up you are then able to harvest the wood from the tress and so on, this gives you more build options to create farms, wells, better walls so you dont have to go out of the compound as much. Once you reach a certain size for the compound and you have built a good few facilities and a strong wall you discover a trap door in the shack that leads to an underground bunker full of building material, iron steel ect. The game then picks up alot of pace and you will need people who join you online to contribute in building projects as well as defend. Once your small shack has become a fortress an economy kicks in and you can start an economy trading ect with other fortresses in the area. To a point you could even attack and take over another teams fortress. Once your teck is high enough you can build underground trams to each others fortresses and so on. As you can see a zombie survival shooter evolves to trying to make a permanant home, then to a point were your fighting other people for surpremecy while defending from zombies, (these zombies of which get stronger and more muteted bosses come to try defeat your defences) untill your a city hub with an economy taking in survivers with the skills you want because your place is so good. A company could do monthly subscriptions or your could buy production power, gun power or even the tech or matieral to build with. I think it is a huge money maker and with everyone into zombies so much it would be a best seller.
