    Hi everyone.

    A friend and I want to make a small game (like the stuff on addictinggames), but we have trouble coming up with an idea of what the game would be like. We want something simple, but most importantly, addicting.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm serious bro, Make it like the sims 3 where you you do sit around figuring out ideas by going to internet forums asking from top idea making internet forum people.

    :bowdown:

    You'll make billions of dollars.

    I've wanted to make a game my whole life... my dad's cousin worked for Psygnosis back when it was around, worked on Lemmings & original Wipeout games... he always told me that he'd take me to E3 when I was a kid, that never happened :rofl:

    I'm currently attempting to learn C, then I'll be moving onto C++ and then C#. So if you need any help writing this game, ask me in a year or two :hs:

    But yeah, you really need a plan first. Do you guys know any Flash? Sounds like the most common method for easy, addicting online games.

    Braid was definiely inspiring, Brinkman... I got the same feeling from it you did... knowing that Jon Blow spent ~$100, 000 and 2 years working on it is a little intimidating though :o Seems like a huge risk to take.

    A shockwave flash game, although rpgmaker games are pretty fun. We just don't have the time for a full on rpgmaker game.

    It's weird



    But I like it.

    Any other ideas?

    Bloons (Definition of an addicting game)


    If it matters, we are probably going to use Android to program it. It's very similar to Java.

    What about one where you have to check RSS feeds and if you read something too late everyone laughs at you for not knowing the new American Idol.

    How about a game where you are a cool-ass dog, with a mini-fun. You're like a gangster dog(dawg) with the the hat and everything. You look cool as fuck, and you mission is to blue up an army of innocent kitties. However, when you reach the last boss he is pissed at you and turns in to longcat, and bam, an epic battle.

    Seriously why would you want to make a game if you don't have an idea? I mean, chances are you don't know HOW to make a game...so now you've got 2 dudes, that don't what type of game they don't know how to make..but are sure that's what they need to do.

    Plus come on, if someone really had an idea for an addicting internet game...do you really think they'd want to just hand it over to someone else to go make money off of?

    If you're making a post like this, you definitely don't have the brains to do this.

    I make tons of games both multiplayer and single player. I just imagine how I want the game to play in my head, and then I pretend to play it. It's so cool because I can make anything happen! My games usually have the best graphics in the world! If a friend wants to play, all they have to do is imagine the game in their own mind. We have a blast playing against each other on our Saturday gaming nights. The only tough part is deciding which of our games to imagine next. It helps if you get some LSD.

    If I recall correctly, he said he spent most of it hiring some guy to draw, by hand, all the games art... other stuff was music licensing. Not sure if that included his own wages... would be less impressive if it was.
