Justice Pageant - Professor Cubeykins

Postby Brocklehurst » Tue Jul 12, 2011 10:35 pm

Been lurking the forums for about a week now and this seems like an awesome place, so I decided to come up with an idea for a game and post a thread!

My game's basically a 2.5D sidescroller with a Kirby-esque gameplay element.
All the characters in the game are cubes and the main character can change into them at will, with each character having different abilities and such... I was playing with the idea of Justice and I thought it'd be funny if it was something trivial and small. Like maybe the main character's car gets stolen and he chases after that person, but it turns out in the end it was just a piece of food or such that he was bothered about.

I've been working on the games framework (making in Unity) and sketching up some ideas for the main character:

I may change him, but it's loads of fun thinking of different characters at the moment, so I'm just gonna keep doing that for a while ;) haha

Will post more as I progress.

I'm loving that sketch. Have you thought about making the main antagonist another shape? That's probably a bit gimmicky, though. Perhaps he's a sideways cylinder, and he only stole the car because he thought the wheels were his friends. Okay that's a bit far fetched.

Looks like it's gonna be a fun game. Can't wait to see it unfold.

Sounds awesome, especially for a game with such cute graphics.

Still working on this! Mainly been working on the 'engine' if you will; decided I'm going for a Lego Star Wars/Batman/etc style camera view - so basically 3D with a set position camera that moves around to designated spots... I felt the 2.5D view wasn't going to work with the game mechanics I have planned.

Basically you'll be walking around places solving puzzles by picking up people and changing into them; so you could pick up a builder and start placing blocks, etc.

Here's an early little teaser screenshot:

I like!

For the story, if you're going for something silly then you could have the professor see someone with a very similar mustache. He gets furious and claims the man is committing mustache plagiarism. The rest of the game is you trying to chase down the man to bring him to justice.
