Back again with a mid week blog post. It’s not too common, but I do do them every so often.
Some of this, some of that…
Some of you may have seen the Lara Croft character I posted on Tumblr on Friday. I decided to go ahead and do a short comic with the character.
I think where my own preference lies in terms of my next game is that I want to do something with some sort of action sequences. No necessarily something involving guns, the driving sequences in a Nascar game would also be a good opportunity, similarity fight scenes in a superhero themed game. It would be the next step in my games evolution after I added the third person camera angles option in Leanna. In this case you’d get the occasional ‘cinematic’ sequence of ten or so images, but most of the game would still be first person.
I’ll decide for certain over the next couple of weeks, but what I’m leaning toward right now is actually a Lisette and Maddison game for the members section, then a game with action sequences for a big free game in IRAY.
This could either be the game in the Nascar setting, something with superheroes, or a pseudo Tombraider one. Or maybe something else, of course.
With the Nascar setting, I already have a basic plot set up as well as the main character. I’m not too sure what role the player would serve in it though. The character’s introduction to the world so far is a bit too similar to what happens in Leanna, and I’d like something different.
For superheroes, the player character is actually the aspect I’ve thought the most about. You’d start of fairly neutral, but throughout the game your karma reflects your decisions. You can end up as a hero, or one of the villains. Different karma levels (evil or good) would open up sex with different characters, and even the tone of the sex – being intimate with a villainous female characters would be very different to sex with one of the morally upstanding ones.
If I went the Tombraider route, obviously I’d have to change some stuff. It’s a copyrighted franchise. There’s a 3D graphics artist I admire who goes by the name Epoch (https://www.epoch-art.com/). He had a pseudo Lara Croft character he calls Clara Ravens. Something similar could work, but it would still have to be different – I don’t want to just copy him. We can obviously have exploring tombs be a part of the plot, but there’s opportunities for other things, such as high class ballroom parties, hanging around her mansion etc.
So that’s where my mind is right now. I’m enjoying playing with ‘Lara’, but I might just be getting over excited because she’s a new character I just created. I’ll see how I feel about everything in a week.
So, would you be interested in a game with ‘Lara’?
Try not to think about it in a ‘versus’ sense where you would prefer one of the other premises instead. Just, in principle, do you think she’s hot, and does the basic idea sound appealing?
