After a much needed mental hiatus I am back on track with my Zombie Survival Project that I've mentioned in previous entries.
The game is set within Eden City, a once beautiful town that has become a zombie filled hellhole. Now you the player must take command over a group of survivors to find hope in these dark times.
The player will get to design their own avatar, a basic staple for RPGing. However, I need help deciding the rest of the party...
The player gets to pick 3 survivors from a list. That way you can build your starting team according to how you'd like to play the game.
The player is assigned 3 survivors randomly. This adds variety for every play-through since the chances of getting the same team twice are low.
The player designs 3 survivors to join them. This combines the concept of play variety and player choice.
The player starts solo and must actively seek out allies throughout the city. Gameplay may be harder as a result.
Note that any survivors I've pre-made that can be recruited each have a personal backstory regardless of the options chosen above.
These are my main ideas I'm looking at implementing and I'd love to hear some opinions. Please discuss below. Also feel free to ask me questions that may be relevant to this topic!
