I was mucking around with the Random Video Game Name Generator this arvo, and came up with 'Imperial Ostrich Hot Pursuit', so I speculated with a mate over MSN as to how the game would work and... well... he suggested a game in which you chase down arch duke ferdinand on an ostrich to assassinate him.
So I'm making it.
THe scenario? What if the assassins missed Ferdinand and gave pursuit - on Ostriches of course! Now the Arch Duek is well defended. There are machine-gun side car ostrichs and rocket warlsuses which drop exploding hedgehogs. And all the graphics are photoshoped (actually in Illustrator) from old black and whit photos. part from the ones photoshopped from colour photos. Which have been turned black and white.
Here are some images:


Ostrich Assassins!


Imperial MG Ostrich!


Rocket Walrus (smaller in game)

I've now got all the image together and will soon start the actual game. although I'll almost certainly add other crazy graphics later.

The name generator gave me "Wandering Octopus Fantasy" as a game name.

I feel all dirty now! :o

The best one though was Ninja Lawnmower Inspector: "Quaaaaaaaaaaaaaalcast!" ;D

Wicked!  :wacko: Very, very cool. That just begs to be built. Especially the side-car ostrich! :lol:

That name generator is pretty cool, too.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I had a go also, and my favourite three were:
unholy chipmunk conspiracy;
the six million dollar landmine dancers, and
mighty frog explosion.

good laugh to be had.
Cheers PW  :thumbsup:

My favs so far ahve been 'Bling BLing Biplane Quest' and 'Everybody hates the racoon farmer'.

And, of course, 'Smooth Jazz GT', the game our parents wish we'd been playing instead of doom  :thumbsup:

I've got most of the game play in place now, but need to make it more challenging. It should nto take to long, I'm just implimenting the perlious pits of peril

PW MSN's me to tell me that the "cyborg matador overlords" stand a good chance of stopping the frog express.
