Visiting Vilnius

Imagine that culture department (or tourism agency) came to you and asked to create a game for the tourist. Of course there are limitations. The most important one – game has to be small, tourist don’t have a lot of space in their bags. So think about something like in Tiny epics or Button shy games. Game shouldn’t have a lot of components, that tourist wouldn’t loose them by accident. And the last one but not the least one – it has to represent the city tourist are visiting. 

What kind of game would you make?

I love to watch car racing on TV, however I don’t have any racing games in my collection. So, let’s create one.

Drag race is the best kind of race. It’s just you and the road. There is no turning or braking. Just pure speed. You. Road. Speed. 

Let’s start the race.

Bear beer deer ear tear V2

A few days earlier I presented my idea for game: Bear beer deer ear tear. It is two player tug of war game. I though to myself, how would I make it 4 player game? I had to throw out all old mechanics and create the new one. Let’s talk about it.

Bear beer deer ear tear

Don’t get drunk on the beer, especially if you are a deer. Bear might snack on your ear and the only thing you could do – is to shed a tear.

Desert Salad

I want to create a game which you could play in the plane. I think the game should meet the following conditions:

    • Take little space: you don’t have much space in the plane, only tiny tray deck.

    • Should be for 2 people and only 2 (I don’t think that I am ready to start making solo games, however I did make solo adventure games in the past).

    • Game should be interesting enough to play for an hour or so. 

In this game we are making fruit salad, we are throwing five types of fruit, but you can’t throw the same fruit twice.

Let’s talk about public transportation one more time. I explained the theme in the original post and later created second version, because I didn’t like mechanics in the original. Let me present you with the third version. 

In this game, you take a task of caching people, who don’t want to play for public transportation. Bus stops at 4 stops, but you can choose to check only 2 of them, be wise about your choice, because other players will also want to check the bus.

Tickets, please V2

I presented original idea in Tickets, please a few days ago. I really liked the theme (well, of course, I did came up with it), however I wasn’t satisfied with how game play worked, so I decided to scrap the game play and start over. What if we leave the same theme, the same graphic design, but create new, different mechanics?

Let’s do that.

Tickets, please

article Ideas calendar_today 2020-12-31 20:53:08

Background for idea. Different countries ensure differently that people who use public transportation pay for it. I know that in UK, when you enter the bus you show the ticket to the driver. I never tried not to show the ticket, so I don’t know what they do in that case. Probably shout at your and go berserk mode.  

In the country I live, there is different approach. We use e-tickets. It can be on a card or on the phone. In most cases driver doesn’t care. However time to time the whole bus is stopped and when the team of three people (who look like security of the mall) climb into the bus and ask every one: could you show your tickets please? How often you can encounter them? Depends on the time you are using the public transportation and the route you are going. Sometimes you can meet them everyday, other times you can see them once a year. They somehow sense when you are late for the meeting, so they always stop the bus in that case and make you even more late.

And of course, if somebody has no ticket, he must pay a fine.

BTW, how do they check if you are paying for public transportation in your country/city?

In this game, you will be the guy/girl who is checking the tickets of the passengers and your goal, of course to catch the ones who ride with no ticket.
