Readme subject: Gaming & Ludics At what point do games become art? - Visuals - Sound - Story - Feel - Message
I missed the pointI will stick with the “games” topic as I have a lot of experience in that area.
Games that caught my attention Desert Bus Cowclicker
Thought about a game like these, but the opposite Instead of the only goal is to raise your score by clicking, you complete a variation of goals but your score remains at 1. Instead of playing to unlock things, the longer you play, the less things are available. All about smooth, nice feeling gameplay rather than scores and achievements.
Too simillar to endless games (adventure/rpg/creation games)Make it about something controversial and popular, such as war, politics, censorship etc
SOPA! At the time of planning it was big It will always return Use parody games to argue against SOPA
How would I parody it? SOPA is all about censorship so:Censor things that dont need censoring?Create something fully censored?“Break the law” of SOPA and copyright infringement, but censor it...
Popular games series - censored Beep out iconic music
What game should I “copy”? The legend of Zelda (The legend of SOPA) Sonic the hedgehog (SOPA the hedgehog) Super Mario bros (SOPA Mario bros)
Could I rip off a whole game? What things could I censor? Faces Music Levels Objects Menus
What could SOPA stop? Characters, but fan art? Gameplay mechanics? Would games companies support SOPA or not?
The music “beep” out certain parts? Recreate entire sound with beeps for instruments Have fan-made music that is open-source Have open-source music on the same page as game, but not inside it
Art censorship Level censorship? What characters are iconic enough to censor? Blocks faces with black blocks or blurring?
Name changing “Sonic” and other characters are owned by SEGA and Sonic Team. Should I change them or cover them?
What am I trying to show? SOPA would give companies too much power and control over everything. Its too late to introduce censorship with all the content already available. People would always find a way around SOPA.
