    awesome idea vyzor. i like it a lot. the art work makes it a lot easier to conceptualize also. love it.
    what if you moved your space ship around slightly using the gyrosphere (is that what it's called) to avoid bees a little bit. i just imagine the honey comb powerups being SOOO satisfying to get, because they look so tasty and shiny and awesome

    thats a great idea. I would be down to help in the dev of this if i can. If i had to say something, I feel like the idea of endless is especially good. Just think of flappy bird. yesterday i read that it makes something like 50000 dollars a day in ad revenue, which is fucked. And think how simple it is. Its just endless. And i know its perfect for a phone game because its easy to pick up and begin and jujst yeah. Endless is great.

    Deass! So do you guys want to start working on this? It's something, like Brandon said, is easy to pick up and play. Sitting on a bus, start playing some Bee Whiz. Situations like that.

    Since I don't actually develop, I don't know how hard this would be to program. But honestly, this doesn't sound too hard at least. Not to mention I just found a program called Unity, which is free to download, and made specifically to develop games for iOS, Android, Blackberry and the likes.

    http://unity3d.com/unity/download/

    It's apparently easy to use according to a bunch of posts about it. So instead of using Java or whatever it is you guys use, this would work perfect!

    Razz funny you mention that, I was actually planning on using unity to make this (i've been playing around in it/learning it for the past few days)

    thats actually hilarious that you would bring unity up.
    wanna get started on some rough draft concept art duncan?
    over the break we can discuss things like possible bosses/upgrades/game mechanics.

    a game where you have like a huge randomly spawned map, and there are all these NPCs that start out as cavemen and nomads and shit and they start to try and build civilizations and cities and shit with the resources around them and you play a 'god' role where you have to try and kill them all off or something. so it's like the opposite of origins lol.

    you would get points from doing shit and then you have to spend your points wisely, like you can start a disease somewhere and hope it spreads or like sounds wolves out to a camp or something, or make it so two villages start hating each other and they go to war. omg it would just have such awesome AI. doesn't that sound like one of the coolest games ever?

    Ya sounds pretty decent! That would be a game I could spend hours on it sounds like. There's a few games out there where you play the role of god, but no game where you're just trying to fuck everything up as him.

    The gameplay is also not like your idea anyways

    the idea also kinda comes from that disease game on iphone. but in ours you could also like spend a shit load of points to erupt a volcano or cause a tsunami or something, would be soooo awesome lol.

    It would probably work this way; you start with a set amount of points, and you have to spend points to kill NPCs in a way that will cause as many deaths as possible because you get points for killing them, then you have to keep reinvesting those points until you successfully kill them alll. If you run out of points then you lose. (so like, if you don't spend your points wisely, like infecting a non-high traffic area with a disease, or cause a tsunami in a city that has helicopters and an easy way to escape or something, then you wont make enough points back from the ones you spent)

    Definitely a great idea for a game! Ya when you mentioned the disease thing i thought about that phone game lol. Kind of reminds me of the disaster parts in sim city too, a.k.a the best part about sim city.

    Oh, and I just drew up a bunch of different Bee designs for Bee Whiz a second ago. I'm having a hard time decided what one I like best so i'll let you guys check them out when we get the chance

    WOW, that makes it sooooooo fucking easy lol.

    The way I was doing it before was a lot dustier. Fuck paint/paint.net.

    When I go to work on ORiGiNS sprites again, i'm going to transfer all the old sprites to this format

    yeah I was so surprised lmaaoo I always thought photoshop was shit for pixel art, so this was like woaaahh. makes it easier for us to make sprites with transparent backgrounds also.

    oh yeah, guys, I have an interview for a developer summer position at that game company in london this thursday, wish me luck :p I guess I passed their coding test.
