I quit making social apps.
Okay, now that I got that out of the way, here’s my idea. I’m making a Pokémon-style business RPG. The name I’ve chosen for it is “Noob, Inc.” since you start out as a n00b businessperson in the game. There’s no signup or any social bullshit. You just pick your name & whether to play as a male or female character. That’s it. There won’t be any in-game purchases (“Wait for 24 hours or pay $XXX to continue now”) or annoying ads. The game won’t need an Internet connection either. It’ll be just like the old days. :)
I’m still working on the storyline, including character names, cities, & the names of other non-playable competing businesses, but it’s going to be pretty much an open world & you can roam around. I don’t want a typical game where everyone only speaks English. The characters will be of various nationalities. In fact, you’ll come across some who only speak their native language, so you’ll need to somehow translate what they’re saying!
To spice things up, I’d like to include the ability to trade stuff between players. Not everyone has the same stuff. Your copy of the game might have resources that someone else doesn’t.
While in alpha, the game will cost $1.99. It’ll then be $2.99 once it’s in beta, & $5.99 when it’s out of beta. I don’t know if this game will ever even be released. I’ve never made games before, & they’re really not as easy to make as they look. So, here goes nothing.
