Here’s a quick progress video for an idea I’m chasing down.
It’s the core mechanic for either a school RPG or a dreamy adventure game. In either case, the idea is to have a poetry jam where the player has to know a poem well enough to pick the next lines at speed.
For the RPG, I think what I want here is to have the player and the opponent exchange verses; if the player fails a verse, the opponent automatically picks it up, and vice versa. The winner is whoever does it better.
I’ll post more later if this idea bears fruit, and if it doesn’t, I won’t!
