I had this idea of a game blah blah blah. In summary, a 2d pixel sidescroller adventure game, it would be a reverse Louis and Clark expedition. You would start on the West Coast of the USA and travel to the East Coast (which is not what Louis and Clark did I know). Basically you would start on the cold rocky coast of Oregon next to your small boat. the first few scenes would perhaps be ascending up the beach into a field with a mountainous back view and then into the trees which get thicker. each scene would be 300 - 500 (ingame) feet in length and would consist of a backdrop (which may be used more than once on close scenes) a foreground (where you would be walking) 0 to 3 conflicts / objectives / misc things to spice up the game (such as a note/grave/carving which you could read, a bear or other wild animal which would block your way, a natural terrain barrier, Indians, abandoned buildings, belligerent people, hurt people, etc etc). No fighting or health bar would be involved, only avoiding death. I would expect to make the game about 50 miles long of 300'-500' hand drawn tiles.
here are a few concept drawings of what I would expect the game to look like. Enjoy.
Some annoying asshole blocks the way
Cave in the mountain
THIS IS ONLY A CONCEPT, DO NOT EXPECT THIS UBER-AWESOME CRAZY GAME TO COME OUT IN YOUR LIFE TIME, THE GRAPHICS ARE TOO ADVANCED.
Does anyone know of any games like this? Similar in any way? Would you play this game? Does it have replay value?
