I just had this idear for a game after watching this japanes film called battle royale, first of all the film kicks arse and so I had to get it on DVD and secon who's watched the ring films as their brilient as well.
If you have not seen the film then this is the jist of it, basicly in japan a class is chosen at random to play in a game called Battle Royale. What hapens is they have to go on a deserted island and they are each given a random weapon, they have three days to kill each other and at the end it there is one suvivor the winer they can go home.
A brillient film and knowing the american film markt it will probaly be made into a western version like ring, if anyone has seen the redon one what was it like was it as good as the origional.
Anyway anoth about films down to the game idear
What I thought the game could be like is the thing game, at the start you have to choice to name the carecters in you game and set their veriouse levels, this way you can customise the games style of play and even shoot friends that are pissing you off.
Duering the game you have several diffrent options on what to, try and kill everyone and be the last one suviving and win, or work with others to find another way out like in the film. But if you work with others you have to try and keep their trust level high and make shour they dont lose it, you also have the bastard or bastards in the game who just want to kill everyone.
At the same time you have find food and make shour you thirsty, if you dicided to go on a killing spree every time you kill one of your class mates you get their weapon. There could be several diffrent maps to chose from and mabye if it was posibal make a level editor, that way people could make their own maps.
Basicly the game and carecters are total custimisibal, this could be almost my dream game, mabey I'll have a crack at it if I ever finish my curent project. Mabey some bujestions on other things to add to make the game more in depth and stratorgy like\rpg\shooter\puzzel, what ever
