PEG, translated in Dutch is a bad spelling version of pech, meaning bad luck. Lucky for us PEG is an acronym for Project Entertainment Game.
A bit weird name since games tend to be entertaining by themselves, no need to put it in the title again! But who am I to criticize project names 😛
The idea of this project is that tomorrow everyone pitches his/her (ultimate) game idea. I already got a few ideas lying around collecting dust but…. Idea 1: Impossible with current level of technology (in case you have a working holodeck please contact me 😉 ) Idea 2: Kind of want to keep this for myself. But the basic idea is turning Legendary Hatters into a game.
So I’m left with the next thing on my list, idea 3. Which is Dhovakiin!
Thats right, the game I worked on for a few days but dropped due to lack of programming knowledge!
Ill talk about the game in a minute. What happens after the pitch is that the ‘jury’ selects half of all the ideas, pairs two people together, and they are the selection jury for their idea/team! After that the game needs to be developed in half a year, and in 4 development ‘sprints’. Somewhere in between a game publisher comes in the picture. So if its good enough (a sellable game!) it might actually get out in the world!
I just hope for the best with my idea. Here it is:
Take the shout words from Skyrim, combine it with the spell casting system from Magicka, and put it in an adventure platformer.
The level has no pre-defined way to solve, the player has to use his creativity to get to the end.
There are as you can see in the (pre-alpha) screenshots I made (in my previous year) 7 base words, they define the base action of the shout. Other words change the effect, or potency.
As far as I know there is no big story, apart from a very basic idea that a Dhovakiin in 2012 fights for freedom from the evil villains which have taken the workers at Gars Incorporated (no, not Mars! :P) hostage. And for some reason our protagonist likes a Gars every now and then.
So humour and creativity saving the world and giving us back some candy bars 😛
