A Game of Hedonism
So, I have come up with the idea for my next game. I’ve started playing with the mechanics of it, registered domain names, and even done some basic data imports.
Here is the basic premise: Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-Roll.
Here is a longer premise:
You are a member of world-famous, insanely popular rock-n-roll band, and this is your final tour across the United States in the year 1977.
It is basically a Choose Your Own Adventure game where, instead of traveling through time to grab a photo of an archaeopteryx, you work to make your way through your tour without getting fired, busted for drug possession, or getting caught by your spouse while having sex with groupies. Or getting addicted to heroin, or catching herpes.
It would be a short-term, casual-player game, with all sorts of humor. You could also play it for only five minutes at a time or even play through the whole 180 day tour in one go.
It would also be. . . adult in theme, since it’s difficult to write a game where you can increase your points by taking heroin before you go onstage will be accepted by the soccer-mom set.
I am currently struggling against my tendency towards complication. For example, do I track your addiction scores? Do we walk through the tour day by day, or only performance by performance?
So here is a question for those who might know about such things (since I can’t seem to find a thing on the FB site):
Is there a restriction on Facebook applications being about “adult” themes or not?
Here is another question:
Would you play such a game?
