Hunger Games Concept Idea.

Recommended Posts

At times my mind often wonders and one of these times happened while watching the film The Hunger Games. For those who haven't seen this film the basic storyline that matters to this post is.. Its set in the future and after a Civil War the country is split into different districts, 1 to 12. District 1 being the richest district, district 12 being the poorest and every year they hold a competition, The Hunger Games. How this competition works is 24 people, 2 from each district are entered into a last man standing styled death match. Now what idea I had while my mind wondered would be to create a turn based game similar to the plot of this film.

Basics...

Having ran a through thoughs through my mind this is how it would work at the moment. The game is based on 4 week rounds. Pretty much all the time of this 4 weeks is spent training up your chartacter on a text based system with some graphical interactive features for training etc. Also in this time the better you do, you'll earn special items when entering the competition like a sword or something along them lines. After the time spent training your characters is done, you will be pitted into the last man standing styled competition but it will be district against district, so all district 1 members fight district 1 members.

Competitions

How the competitions will actually work is on the last day, they will be entered into the competition. When in the competition players will be displayed onto a large map, they will have to travel around this map and kill all the other players until the last player is dead, if they want to go offline they'll have to find a place to hide so its harder for people to find them, obviously it make take longer than a day for the competition to finish depending on how long it takes for everyone to die.

Districts

How districts will work is when you first register you are entered into district 12, the lowest and worst district which offers you the worst oppertunities, to move up districts you must win your districts competition then the next round you'll be in the district above. For people who didn't win the last 5 alive will recieve extra points for next round and the district 1 winner will win a cash prize built up by donations.

Obviously this is a large project but it will be something I want CookieGaming to look into in the near future. One thing I was just wondering, as a breif plot what do you guys thing? Is it a good idea and could it work? Also would anyone be interested in joining on helping when the time comes to set it up?.

Thanks for reading,

Razor.

Please use paragraphs, it's hard to read blocks.

I do like the basis of the idea, but it'll be hard to execute in an enjoyable way.

How is the map system going to work? Are all players hidden and you're able to just freely walk around? Or are you limited to moving 50 spaces a day? Is it going to be real time? How can you 'hide' without making it unfair on those who stay online 24/7?

Map system is going to work like a large map which players can move around, objects on the map etc and for players to hide they won't be totally hidden. Say you decide to hide in a tree, which she often does in hunger games, you'll be high up in the tree but obviously people walking around on the floor will be able to look up and see you and shoot you.

As I said whats there it just a basic 5 min brainstorming session, everything still needs expanding on greatly.

tbh its a good idea but say you do district 1 - 12 like the movie then you would have to have minimum of 12 members join up each month wont be that fun so for each district you would have to have at least 2 members per district then again you could get them members also with the movie it was good but in a game what would be the point of having separate districts as there is only 1 winner you would think each district would work together to win as a team not for 1 person to win also when your putting users into districts how would you select to evenly select users as you wouldn't be able to let the user choose and about registration you couldn't let users join half way though a month everyone would have to join on same day i would say rethink and extend the idea alot

 

P.S i dont care about punctuation it the internet FFS.

Punctuation I can live without.

However please take the care to split your comment up into sections, our eyes are comfortable when we read small chunks (think newspapers.)

Whereas the infamous 'Wall of text' is, well, difficult to read.

As I said, the ideas are still not fully finished, there is still alot of work to do on them and to start off 1st people who join will enter district one, until they have say 20, then then next will join district 2 and so on, making it so that maybe our first ever round we have only 3 districts in competition but each of them have 20 members each. Everything can be easily solved.
