Time for another game idea, huh. I was thinking of doing a social game but figured that I should mix it up a bit, considering that Medium Mix-Up, my last game, was a social game. I’ve decided to start working on an idea that I’ve been sitting on for a bit.
I want to make a 1v1 match three game. While the concept isn’t exactly groundbreaking, it’s always something I’ve wanted to see. There are so many match three games out there, yet none of them have versus elements. At the very least, it’ll be fun to put a new spin on a game design classic.
As for issues, there are a number of them. Foremost among them is how to make it an actual strategy beyond matching pieces and making sure you don’t set up your opponent. Always make sure to think beyond the primary gameplay loop. I’ll probably add characters which are stronger with certain matches and a shield system, both of which will add an element of selective matching.
I’m not quite sure how I’ll implement the board refill, but that’s a week two consideration.
I’m planning for the flavor to be magic again because fantasy is just generally awesome.
I’ll leave it at that for now as I consider all my options. Get ready for some exciting reports by week two!
