Interest Check for game
« on: February 09, 2015, 06:10:25 pm »

I had an idea of making a cat-and-mouse game where one character is hunting the other, while another is hunting him.

There will be four characters in this game. 3 Hunted and 1 Monster

Spoiler: Hunted (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Monsters (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Card Set (click to show/hide)

Interesting concept. I would be willing to play, but perhaps we need to flesh out some of the concepts first...

Yeah, I like the idea, but I can't wrap my head around getting it to work.

Definitely sounds interesting, and something I'd like to play. Details, though... details would be hard.

Sounds interesting, but, like the others', details.

Specifically how we would do the hunting, because if everyone knows where you're going, not much hunting necessary...

Well, I suppose we could set it up as a role playing game. Or maybe a RTD game...

Well that's what I mean; if it were an RPG would it be in spoilers, and other players aren't s'posed to look at them, or through PMs?

I've never played RTDs, but I imagine that would work for a game like this.

Sounds like it has potential, but it definitely needs planning, for fear of massive headaches.

For hunting, at the start of the game, you wake up in some unknown area, and have no idea what's happening, other than you feel like you're being hunted, and you feel like you need to look for something. You then begin looking for clues, which gradually fill in what you should be doing, or who you should be hunting. The monster's situation is similar, but they have the extra objective of hunting and killing the human survivor's, as well. The Master's goal is to make discovering the clues as difficult as possible, without making it impossible, and I plan to have his power scale throughout the game, have him start off small, and get bigger toys as the game goes on. As for turn systems, I'd like to use an uno card set as power-ups and points toward actions.

Would you prefer a PM system, or a spoiler system?

I'd go with a spoiler system; while a PM system would be more secure, it would make it practically impossible for anyone to watch what was going on.

Spoiler system would be easier to read for people not playing, but is prone to cheating. PM system would be a safer bet.

I'm pretty much of the same view, spoilers are easier, but PMs guard against cheating.

Perhaps it shouldn't be public which players are hunting who, but sent through PMs?
