Hi! I’m making a new game similar to / inspired by Candy Box 1 and Candy Box 2 with the theme of a potato factory, but so far all I did was make a system that gives a potato to the player every second . It would be helpful if you guys suggest some ideas, any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Hello! It’s great that you’re working on a new game! Here are some ideas to add to your potato factory game:
Different types of potatoes: You can add different types of potatoes with unique attributes and values, such as sweet potatoes that are worth more than normal potatoes, or exploding potatoes that can damage the player or enemies.
Items to collect: You can add collectible items in the game, such as special potato bags that contain rare potatoes, or tools for the potato factory that can improve potato production.
Enemies or Challenges: Adds enemies or challenges that the player must overcome, such as faulty potato processing machines or potato-eating pests.
Potato Factory Upgrades: Add upgrades to improve potato production, such as new machinery to cut and process potatoes more efficiently.
Mini-games: Add potato-related mini-games, such as cutting and peeling potatoes as quickly as possible, or throwing potatoes into a basket.
Rewards: Add rewards for completing certain tasks or challenges, such as experience points or coins to buy upgrades and items.
Story and Characters: Create an interesting story behind the potato factory and add characters that interact with the player.
I hope these ideas help you develop your game. Good luck!
What sort of ideas are you after - different options once you’ve collected a set number of potaotes? Extra minigames? Have you tried using ChatGPT for ideas?
Thanks for responding! I need ideas for the entire game, right now I’m stuck and don’t know what to add to the game.
try making it first person
ChatGPT’s ideas will be repetitive since it takes “inspiration” from data collected meaning someone else already said or done it.
but it will seem better first person
well try adding a timer like you need to give as many as you can until the timer runs out of time
Hi! Can you explain to me what you meant by first person?
oh well like first person as if seeing in some ones eye
look up first person game
Oh sorry I misuderstood you.
that is a first person game
Oh, well you can make one
I could but I really want it to be like a text adventure game similar to A dark room
Hi! You could make factories that the player can buy to get more potatoes per second, maybe they can upgrade them, you could also make quests that the player could play to get potatoes or unlock more items. You could add a shop to buy gears and loot with potatoes. Good luck with your game!
the best first person game I played is called Portal you can find on steam
