Hi Everyone. It’s me, Chaotic. I know the emphasis right now on the site is Academy : Part 3, and I don’t want to take too much attention away from it, but I really want to do a small mid week post today to get some feedback on some ideas I’ve had. I started a thread on the new lagoon forum, but I want to get as much feedback as possible, so, I’m going to post here too.
Since Academy Part 3 is going to be released a week later than I had scheduled, I allowed myself Friday afternoon to return to Unity3D and experiment. Things look really good there these days. I’ve got a ton of locations, nearly all of which are ready to use in a full game.
I feel like the main reason I still haven’t put together a 3D game yet is that I still can’t quite decide what format the game should take. Should it just be a 3D version of one of my regular date games? Maybe, but they already exist. To make a game in 3D, it has to be worth the effort. If all of the content is just what I could have in a 2D game, then what’s the point?
So, here’s a list of format scenarios, each with their own polls. Let me know what you think.
This is the main idea I came up with that’s made me enthusiastic.
A date, but with a character you can fully significantly customize. That’s certainly something that can’t be done in my regular 2D games. Don’t expect a level of customization that you’d see in, say, Fallout 4, but I could certainly set it up so that you can pick :
- Face shape/structure
- Body shape, including breast size
- Skin color
- Hair style
- Maybe fashion style
I could also have you select personality, name, and should it be voiced, I’d give a few options for how she sounds. This might be a good way to include some more niche preferences without it being something everyone has to use, such as mature characters, particularly skinny ones, or particularly large ones.
My only real reservation with this is that I feel many players would really want to date their favorites, but in a 3D environment, such as Maddison or Rachel. One way around this could be to have established characters as the threesome options. So, while dating your custom date, you can run into Crystal working at the pool, or Rachel working a stripper, then persuade them to join you. Basically the same as Maddison or Rachel Part 3.
Just dating the established characters
You could either explore the game locations, find characters, then ask them out, or maybe pick the person you want to date from a phone and meet them somewhere. Either way, it would be regular dating scenarios, but in 3D this time.
The biggest problem with this will be coming up with 5 or more different ways that a date would progress in a certain location. Can there really be that many different ways that going to a pool with Crystal, Maddison or Erica can play out? I can see myself struggling with ideas.
It’s something I’ve done many times before. Having it all set in a 3D environment however will probably present fun, new ways of doing things.
I could also make it a combination of established and new characters.
Similar to above, but each date is released desperately.
Episode 1 : Date Crystal 3D
Episode 2 : Date Maddison 3D
Episode 3 : Date Rachel 3D
It would certainly give me time to come up with new ideas for how the dates can have different things happen, but at the same location. Basically, just a 3D version of what I’ve done many times before though.
There’s a WIP adult game also made with Untiy3D that’s been going for a while now. It called house Party and you can download and play it here if you wish : http://games.eekllc.com/
The plot has you joining a neighbors house party and trying to make naughty things happen. You can persuade the charters to get naked and…other things I’m told. I actually had trouble progressing with the plot for this game (if someone can give me a walkthrough, or at least tell me where the whip-its are, I’d be very grateful :)) .
Anyway, I could do a pool party game quite similar to this. 5 or 6 established characters (or maybe new ones) could all be invited to a pool party at your house. You can explore, help the guests, resolve any conflicts between them, give them all excuses to get naked etc.
This seems like something where making it in 3D seems worth it. It also wouldn’t be too big, or take too long to make.
A combination of some
I like the idea of a custom date, but I also get that fans of the various characters would want to see them. So how about 2 story modes?
Mode 1 would be the date with a custom character, along with familiar characters as options for the threesomes.
Mode 2 would basically be a remake of the first Photographer game. You explore the various locations, find characters, persuade them to partake in a photoshoots, probably by completing a small quest for them. It can then end in sex for them, either during the photoshoot, or at a party later.
Or maybe just a game that’s a remake of the original Photographer game.
So, looking at all of those options and their variants, if you could only have one, what would it be?
I’m also very interested in hearing any of your own ideas. To be blunt though, when I say this, I’m not really looking for storylines. I’m looking for ideas where the logistics of the gameplay would fit well with a 3D environment. Maybe something that uses exploration well, for instance.
Or, of course, I’m also interested in just hearing your thoughts on the idea of a 3D game in general. What does everyone think?
