We would like to obtain pricing for development of a promotional game for our website. (tight budget, please be gentle : ) The basic ideas for the game are as follows:
The overall theme of the game is bow hunting. The graphics and sounds for the game can be simplistic and basic functions would mimic the "Bow Man" stick figure game: [url removed, login to view] Although We would like for the player to be able to control arch and power / distance of the arrow in some manner. (in order to hit moving or standing targets), it doesn't have to be exactly like that. The proposed game will not require multi player or player vs. computer options.
Originally we had pictured the player positioned on the far right or left side of the screen, sitting in a deer stand / tree stand. However, we feel that positioning the deer hunter in the bottom center of the screen with a first person perspective could work fine as well.
The forest / field in front of the hunter would have different animals walking through or walking in and standing (for a short period) at times / frequencies. (Whitetail Deer / Black Bear / Rabbit / Gray Squirrel / Wild Hog) Hogs would come through in a pack.
Animal Rights protesters would also be present in a small group with protest signs. The protest group would slowly work their way toward the hunter (possibly in the way the aliens move in the old Space Invaders game). If the group ever reaches the hunter's position, the game is over. When the hunter makes a successful shot on an animal, he would accumulate points and the protesters would be restarted from their original location (thus delaying their march to the hunters location). The wild hogs would graze in a group and move through at a quicker pace. If the hunter makes a successful shot on the largest hog, the herd will stampede the protesters, which awards the hunter a bonus. (However, if the hunter shoots a protester directly, he will receive a penalty and points are deducted ? with a sign or sound effect stating, ?Perfectly good arrow wasted ? Penalty!?).
Each time an animal / person is hit with an arrow, a small amount of blood should be present as with the ?Bow Man? game. We would like for sound effects to accompany the hits. (by the target and by the hunter).
The protesters should move progressively faster each time they are reset to the starting point.
We would like the final screen to include a refer-a-friend function and a logo link to the site.
Please let us know your thoughts and pricing on this project. If there are elements that add considerably to the price, or if you see areas for game improvement, please suggest an alternative.
Please provide access to work samples.
