I've been working for a while on improving my previous game, creating new gameplay elements, building a world, introducing more mechanics and infusing more depth to the game itself. I'm now working on the meaning of the playing experience, on what the player will feel when he will play the game and what he will learn. It's about time I introduce a story into it.
What I’m asking of you, noble reader, is today to be my guide. Why not use the internet and its web of connections, ideas and imagination, to build something new and fresh? If you feel creative today, read the following, and not only “like it” or “dislike it”, but think of what it means to you and try to create your own “bowl of ideas” from it.
a - A journey looking for the meaning of the soul. The experiment of a scientist trying to find the meaning of the soul. A journey only Me (as the ‘scientist’) could accomplish. About skepticism, and the scientific aspect of our lives versus our beliefs. Should we expect proofs for everything?
b - A journey into the human mind. The brain and its neurons, web of connections, and memories. Am I just memories? A journey in our own minds, to dig out the soul.
c - A journey every one of us has to do, in order to learn about life and our existence. A journey that will change our vision of the world, and maybe our purpose. Should I try to elevate my soul?
d - A journey that will make us think about our own beliefs about life and the nature and the destiny of our very own soul.
So please! Feel free to comment on these ideas, and add your own! It doesn’t have to be precise, general ideas are the best, let it be abstract, themes and subjects, questions and intrigues.
The people with the very best ideas will of course be shown in the credits of the final game… or more :)
