View Full Version : Game Ideas I need Help

Thought id post it in the AC forums seen as this game that i have been thinking about and have put lots of plans down for is like a mixture between AC, Hitman and the movie V for Vendetta and i wanted to see what you people think about my ideas.

Ive always wanted to design my own game I do it all the time.

I have games like MMORPG/FPS's and FPS Cinematic game ideas where you feel more like part of the world where your character automaticaly interacts with the environment like as you walk through a door way and your crouched the game engine will know you want to be stealth and to add realism to the game your characters hands might rach out for the door as you peer around ect ect.

Any way here is my Game idea.

Game Name: Vagabond
Players: 3
View: 3rd person
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3.
Name of character: Don't Know

This game is based in the time period of 1666
There are three main cities. York, London, and Nottingham. The Old London Bridge is still up. You play as "Lord Acres" who is a wealthy man who lives in a mansion with his many servants in the centre of London. He is skilled in many different professions such as theatrics, sparing, he is a skilled acrobat, a fantastic psychologist and a combat expert [Assassin / hit man].

He has a variety of different disguises which he can use to fool people into believing he is what he looks like. His main costumes are his Lords suit and his thief suit and he picks up many different ones as he explores the cities. He is skilled in the use of a variety of different weapons from swords to dagger to cleavers to spears and many more.

He has his own stables and a large selection of horses from warhorses to racing horses each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

In your mansion your manservant "Quytyn Wyse" is also aware of your skills and your actions but is a loyal man who keeps your secrets quiet.

50% of each cities structures are enterable.

Each disguise gives the Lord a different style of movement, conversation and abilities as well as your superb traversing and combat skills.

S=start with.
Carry from 2 to 3 different disguises at once and up to 6 weapons and 3 items.

Merchant (Butcher, baker, fish merchant) [F]
Servant [S]
Guard (Guard, soldier) [F]
Priest [F]
Bard [F]
Drunk [F]
Lord (Normal) [S]
Thief (Alternate) [S]

Each disguise has many different actions specific to that costume like carry food and stack boxes, and for the drunks! Drunken Brawl which can get you arrested. But if this skill is overdone it could lead to your death. And as a grave digger you can pretend to be digging up new graves which you can burry people alive.

Situations: Nearly all situations can be dealt with differently for example. You might have a man as a target and you need to have him killed. You could either follow him and then kill him then try to escape or you could set a trap for him or, you could bribe a local guard to look the other way while you murder the target and get away with no penalties.

You can use your acrobatic skills to traverse down dangerous alleys and across roof tops quickly. Wall run and cliff hang and hide in the shadows. Or remain in plain sight in disguise or even set a trap up and sit back and watch from a safe distance.

Real-time day and night cycle, hide in chimneys while being chased to loose your enemies in the volumetric fog.

After every kill whether it was successful or not you can choose to leave your signature mark near the crime scene. Choose from a red, white or black rose. Pin the dead to the wall. Leave a glass of red or white wine near the dead body, cut the letters SV into the nearby wall or even the victim.

Your two main disguises, the thief and Lord suits both have individual reputations which change as you perform different actions. Have a good reputation as the thief and do good deeds or keep your murders concealed and guards and people may respect you as a thief, or murder and commit bad deeds and the guards and people will flee and even attack you.

Combat and Traversing:

Depending on your situation and position of your character and your disguise different actions can be performed such as performing a wall run or crowd stealth kill. Learning when these actions can be performed is critical to perfecting your goal.

I ahve other parts to this but thyre very simple and theyre like combat moves and small descriptions of the actions which happen depending on your situation but im not sure if i want to post them lol.

Please read it and see what you think. Plz post some ideas :P

I gues it is off topic but it does include ideas from AC and i dont think its too far off topic. And alot of other posts are off topic so :S

Sorry if you think this isnt the right place to talk about this.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/351.gif If people dont like multiplayer ideas wath will they think off this kind of things? btw I wouldn't buy your game sry it just sounds a bit boring... But it is an intresting and original consept

10-29-2007, 03:56 PM
This is a completly seperate game consisting of both the crowd elements. Freerunning, Discuiseing and being overall a sneaky Lord.

Just i enjoy coming up with game ideas and ever since i heared AC it inspired me so i did this.

Ist ok if you dont like it because not everything is going to be everybodys piece of cake http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif mmm cake :P

10-29-2007, 03:58 PM

10-29-2007, 04:24 PM
Now you have to add stuff to this idea :P and yes its possible to say it in one breath

10-29-2007, 04:34 PM
ARGH! It's impossible! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

By the way, that's an AWESOME idea you got there, aapleyard! But it'll be tough to actually make it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Anyway, great idea, mate! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

10-29-2007, 04:43 PM
Yay, i said it all in one breath! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Seems like a cool game, i would love to see a 1600s time period game. It would make an interesting movie, or IS an interesting move, "Vaga-BOND"!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

10-29-2007, 04:44 PM
here are some suggestions from your friendly neighborhood Spiderman http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

1.pick a better name. "Vagabond" made me think you were an assassin/hobo. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
2. You need to think of a story, a game that's just going around killing people or robbing someone is going to get boring after a while. I know what you're all thinking, but yes, GTA does have a story.

10-29-2007, 05:00 PM
It would be an interesting game if some of those elements were fleshed out.

A RPG/Action/Adventure hybrid. The key is to get it to work properly. Many ambitious games (cough S.T.A.L.K.E.R cough) come out horribly.

10-29-2007, 06:11 PM
I like the irony of vagabond and several of the costumes could be described as a vagabond so the titles good. The ideas not entirely original - if all the missions were assassinations it would basicaly be hitman with extra features, but its still a good idea. Overall I think if the plot looked interesting I'd consider buying the game.

I realy appreciate the comments.

I chose avagbond because the meanin g of the word is like a mercenary / person who is kind of a miss fit actiony guys.

Why do you think He called James BOND eh eh :P

10-30-2007, 01:07 PM
it is a cross between Batman with the mansion, loyal butler lots of horses (or cars) and made skills and he is rich with Assassin;s Creed as you are Lord Acres (one of AC cities) you had 3 playable cities (just like AC)

10-30-2007, 01:21 PM
VAGABOND=Assassin Creed it just like the same thing apart from the different outfits u can use

10-30-2007, 01:35 PM
the name of the character may be bond, vaga bond.

Races - Human , Djinns

Classes- commoner, magician,djinns,werewolf(lycanthrope)

Factions- Czech, American, British, Other place

Major Cities - Prague, London, American is unknown as of now



Human - magicians commoners are just the trade group they have no ranks

rank 1 = apprentice. rank 2 = magician level two. rank three = magician level 3. rank 4 = magician level 4. rank 5 = magician level 5. rank 6 = magician rank 6



This will be a strange concept to most but players can run the government. Yes you the players but of course you must be very potent person and theres like a .05% chance that a commoner will become a government leader like the Prime Minister. But theres a likely chance a magician may become a leader. But like all governments they may be taken over and turned into whatever you want like a dictatorship. If a leader is killed the killer may take over the government kill all its employees and put in whoever he wishes. If you are in charge of a country you may put war on another country.That would me no citizens would be able to go to that country if he/she is not in the military.



The military is for when your country is at war. The military is always there but only inactive if theres peace. If you decide to war a neighboring country your military turns active and you may abduct any of the commoners that signed up for it. Magicians may also join but it is unorthodox for high ranking magicians to risk there lives for a war. The only part of the military that doesn't go to war is the night police or werewolfs. they are the police like if a player commoner or magician kills a person in cold blood the night police may kill the perpetrater.That is why it is important if you wish to take over a government to do it in secrecy and not let to many members into your group.


Your Character

This is a strange proposal to mmos but in this game you have one life for a character. It is unusual to get murdered if you are a low ranking person like a commoner. But to make sure you cant be killed right when you start the game you cant be killed until your rank three or a night police. Commoners can get killed once you earn more than 50,000 dollars. There is more than one reason why I put in one life because if you are a mean cruel person in this game and your cruel to a new person well as the saying says "what comes around go around".So i wouldn't create enemies for fun. There will be a friend and ignore list for conveniance.There are many more reasons why you wont be murdered in the game but all in due time i shall reveal why

I copied this from a site I posted so its a little rusty. O and im not new im shadowriderjp but it wont let me log back on http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif o well have a good read, mind you i did not finish it. I based it off a book.
