I, too, love it when a game can actually creep me out and scare me (and Jonathan Boakes is my hero). I like playing in bed with all the lights out.

And-- Wysewomon-- I think your idea is AWESOME and oh SO needed. (Could Shulamith Firestone be in it?) As it is now, adventure games and, maybe in SOME RPGs are the only places to hope to see healthy, non-stereotypical female characters.

But I would make a game about Real Estate Agents.
I think THAT would be SO incredibly wonderous!!


Okay... I'm kidding. I would like to see a thriller about a bizzare serial killer where you get into his mind and explore some of the horror that drives him (like in the movie "The Cell" but done better).

And I would FOCUS on a good story, good puzzles and the relationship between them.

Hey Dar!
I was thinking along a Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon, or James Patterson's Gary... Gary... Gary (somebody).

I don't think you need gore at all. In fact, I find the suggestion of horrors you ARE NOT shown affect me MORE.

I have MANY game ideas in mind, but would need a programmer to put them together.
I'd focus on the art and looks of the game, (which is the part I'd want to do) the story line with mystery, and the puzzles.
I'm not into scary as much as intrigue and I'd like to add the ingredient of humor!

I agree. A Doctor Who adventure would be superb.

think

If I could make a adventure game I'd expect it would end up being suspense based as well.

Probably have to do with surviving in the land of the dead, sort of a Dreamfall meets Grim Fandango. I'd want it to have a real Alice in wonderland sort of feel to it but at the same time be very dark.

a couple years ago I started plotting a game that was kind of like a cross between The Mists of Avalon and Beyond Atlantis In the beginning, a priestess returns to her sanctuary from a pilgrimage to find that the place is deserted and she then has to go through a bunch of trials all based in the mythologies of different cultures to find out what happened and rescue her sisters. I think I had Australian Aboriginal, Native American, Celtic and Japanese Shinto sections, corresponding to the 4 directions and 4 elements. But I couldn;t figure out what had happened to the priestesses either! So I gave it up...Maybe some day I'll go back to it or find someone to collaborate with.

I would love to see and adventure game based on any Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child book, especially with Pendergast. Imagine the possibilities!

Been rereading the Virginia Lanier novels about Jo Beth Sidden and Bloodhounds Inc. Has anyone ever written a game using a bloodhound? Of course it would have to be a mystery game.

How about the show the Lost Room as a game, or has that been done. There is lots of goodie to make puzzles out of there. You know that show did seem familiar. I thought I played that game once.

Joan-

I agree with you, by the way have you read Douglas Preston's new book, it is great, but Pendergast is the best.

In a Dr Who game one could actually walk into the Tardis from outside. That would be pretty neat.
