HorseFeathers:
Next semester Im taking a Strategies in Game Design class, and according to my friend who took it last semester, the final project is to make a small game.
I thought maybe I could stimulate some thought by letting yall in on it :P Got any ideas?
Since I havent even started classes yet, theres no rush, and the final project will obviously have to be mine, but it seemed relevant so I thought Id let yall in on it :P
I hope this is the section to put this in.

Update! 8-24-09
First day of classes! Omagawsh!
So anyway, I had my first session of the game design class, and frankly its not looking as good as Id hoped. Not the course itself, but theres a bunch of guys that kinda bug me in the class...and we have to work in groups. Not cool
Personal crap aside, the class doesnt look too bad. I guess we are going to be working with a 2D program (I thought Richard would get a kick out of that :P). I dont know what the program is yet but he says its got minimal coding so it shouldnt be too bad.
My original ideas for games are far too complex for someone whos never developed any part of a game before, and probably too much to finish before December, so I started staring off into space and feeling around my brain for other ideas.
So far all I got is this: a 2D (or 3D) turn based fighting game, in which the player controls 3 spacey ships. Im horrid at drawing machines, but Ill try to work on some concept sketches to hopefully better explain what I have in mind.
Im still going to have to see how things go, but it seemed like a cool idea so I thought Id toss it out to you guys, and keep yall updated on how the class is going.

Update 2, 8-24-09
Apparently we have to use a program called Torque. I have no idea what it is but my friend who took the class is telling me to gtfo while I still can. Any comments/suggestions?
