Animorph Game?
« on: April 03, 2009, 01:48:57 AM »
Anyone else wish that a new game would be made using animorphs? I played the old ones for game boy and psx, but I would really like a game where you could actually get all the morphs you want. Its one thing to read it, and i always thought that the show was cheesey, not to mention that so much more could have been done with it, and the effects were cheap. But I would like to play the game where you could go and pick your morphs and they all have different abilities... Like a open RPG game. Any thoughts on this?

I'm making a board game for animorphs (although it'll be a while before i finish it)...does that count? that's about the best I can do with my limited knowledge on flash and stuff...

hmm... an intriguing idea... i reacon the best way to make an ani game like that, would have to be something like Oblivion or Fallout 3 (free-roam, sand-box gameplay) with GTA style physics... like you can't morph in public, you have to be where there is no people (like an alleyway) and of course, there has to be the 2 hour limit

I've told my brother Mr. Guy he has to make an Animorphs video game.  He wants to make it like another game called Mirror's Edge, where you are the character and you see through their eyes.

Well that does sound like the way to go. It'd be like the books in that sense, which would be downright neat.

I have played the PSX one and the GBC one and the PC one had the board game.

the GBC one was alot like pokemon didn't like that you could only keep certain morphs at a time.

I always dreamed of a Super smash brothers style game With Animorphs XD why IDNO I just thought it would be fun to play

Though I'm studying more the 3D Graphics side of game design, I do want to try my hand at making an Animorphs game once I get into the industry. I know the standard of how to make design documents, though for a sandbox type game (which is what I want to do), it'll be really time consuming. (Design docs can get HUGE, depending on the complexities of a game...)

there would have to be some questions answered...

like, would you be able to control the other animorph characters? what would be their role in the game?

first person, third person?

how would you narrate the story? in game cinema scenes?

how much of the book series would you want to cover?

would it be free roam, sandbox play? (which is what everyone seems to want though i think a controlled way of playing might be just as fun, or you could have both!)

 I think an animorphs game would be awesome. though some things need to be defined like how to acquire morphs, how the game menu would work, and stuff like that.

like i said. a GTA style free roaming, sand-box style game. the game would be narrated through cinematics, i myself prefer 3rd person, but if it's like oblivion, you should be able to change from one perspective to the other. now, just to make it clear, i'm now just throwing ideas into the open. For the other characters, they should be done with either copmouter controlled AI (i've seen some awesome AI in some games) or via on-line gaming... whaddya think?

I think a good AI should do the trick. I mean, AI has gotten crazy advanced lately. And then have the option of co-op or online.

ya know, that could work... i mean, look at the AI in Army of Two... that AI is friggen crazy cool... it even adapts to your tactics... like if you are goin in all rambo, he stays back to cover you, but in you stay back, he'll try to advance... it's pretty cool what they do... especially since it's all unscripted...

Yeah, kinda makes me glad I didn't go into programming, though... I mean, can you imagine needing to program something like that? @_@. I only know a bit of Visual Basics, Flash Action Script, and HTML and even that's almost too much for me.
