Community Game: Super Holy Roller 3D!

Postby samw3 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:00 pm

A simple to make, tongue in cheek, bowling/pinball type game.

SUPER HOLY ROLLER 3D!

Roll your disciple down the aisle of the Mega Ultra Contemporary Worship Center, dodging pews and ushers as you race to the altar!

Try to get there in record time, but watch out for Bibles along the way! They trigger enigmatic bible trivia questions that count against your time!

Feel the rushing winds of Emotional Experience pickups! But be sure not to quench the spirit by running into the stuffy old fundamentalist!

Coming to a LifeWay store near you!

Questions:
+) Who will be the project lead, what are the project leads qualifications (prior CDN Speed Challange or SpeedGame involvement, other work experience)
The project lead position is open on this.

+) What coding language will the project use
Javascript or C#

+) What engine will the project use (if not building one from the ground up)
Unity 3D (free download)

+) How will you be managing source control and access to builds
I recommend GitHub, Google Code.

+) Summarize the idea for the game
A bowling/pinball type game with pickups and obstacles. Single level with some random elements. Timer. Optional post score to Facebook/Twitter.

+) Small scope design; a game that could be completed within 3-4 months.
This is a pretty small scope for Unity. Easily doable in 3 to 4 months.

+) Browser playable; so more people can play it easily.
Unity supports browser playability

+) Open source; so people can learn.
The code will be hosted on a public, open source code repository.

Assets Needed:
* Title Screen
* Holy Roller disciple texture to map onto a transparent sphere.
* Wide Pew model
* Aisle Carpet texture for floor
* Cathedral skybox
* Altar model
* Stuffy Fundamentalist model with a shuffling animation
* Usher model: holds out offering plate, side-stepping animation.
* Bible pickup model
* Bible Question backdrop
* Emotional Experience pickup model
* Particle effects for collecting pickups and the win condition.
* Title Menu GUI elements

Sound effects:
* Hallelujah (used when starting and finishing the race)
* Something stuffy said by the fundamentalist
* Pinball sounds for when you ricochet off things
* Whooshing sound for Emotional Experience pickup

:D could have several levels..

for example level 1 is baptism, 2 is 1st communion, 3rd is marriage, 4th and 5th baptism. 6th level and on is optional? so gives missions/reasons to get to the alter?

would it be all serious or humerous? for example you get to the alter and wife and kids turn out to be demons?

:lol: well you mentioned having to anwser bible questions? a funny implement would be the bibles are hurled at the person, if it smacks you, you have to anwser a question.

be funny if for example your wife is demonic and the pews come together on opposite sides the isle to try and crush you inbetween them.

it has the potential to be halarious like once you finish a level he turns see's whatever, shakes his head and is like god help me! then you have to go back get to the starting point, and get a minister to unposses your wife and kids. :lol: be funny if the minister gets there shakes his head and runs. you can have unlimited fun with this.

The whole idea of a community game is pretty awesome. I'd like to help out in any way I can. I'm an amateurish programmer and designer, only a few years in. However, i have a good eye for aesthetics and am a natural problem solver. Also, are there any completed community games i can check out?

The only one we've completed so far has been Bible Dave, and that was ages ago.

This is just a recommendation. Mack is currently collecting ideas for us to vote on. So, feel free to submit an idea.

God Bless!
