Just as I tried to overcome my sadness because of my friends heading back home to Turkey, I remembered that it is Sunday and that I have to submit a new game idea. Maybe writing a game concept will cheer me up a bit! Voila, her comes game idea # 2.
Game Idea #2
In Saviors! you control a rescue group whose aim is to provide human aid in distaster zones world wide. Your goal is to save the lives of as many people as possible in places hit by disasters such as tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, avalanches or volcanic eruptions.
The game has two levels of control: On the global level we see a world map which indicates regions that need help or are endangered by approaching disasters such as hurricanes or active vulcanos. Here we build new offices, purchase vehicles and technology, hire and train humans or animals, do research and cooperate with governments or NGO’s like the Red Cross. On the other hand, when we go on a rescue mission (the local level), we find ourselves in a neighborhood or zone hit by a disaster and we have only a few minutes to find those who still might be alive. By using our technology at hand, by deplying the right people and animals to the right place, and by gathering valuable information through interaction with witnesses, we try to locate as many of the missed people as possible and do our best to get them out there alive. Our success will also depend on the relations we have with the government and the NGO’s (like having more skilled translators or better first aid for the rescued).
Saviors! combines puzzle solving with tactical skills and stragetic planning. It sends you into missions that can both tear your heart apart and make you the happiest person on earth. You will discover that nothing is more satisfying and important than saving the lives of people and giving them a second chance. You will often have to mourn for those for whom all help came to late. But as you get experienced, you will achieve great things and win the heart of both, the governments, and more important, the public, which will not forget your heroic efforts.
