High School Architect

Postby Rune » Fri Jul 26, 2013 4:22 am

Even incomplete, I am very happy with Prison Architect, and the way Introversion has captured many of the nuances of prison management.

What do you guys think about a High School Architect game? Would it be appealing? Would Introversion do a good job of it?

It's not a bad idea, but it sounds like something that no one would want to play simply because of the name and concept. Gameplay-wise it'd probably be fun. Either way, IV will not make this game. (but depending on the game's eventual moddability, someone might use PA for this)

So maybe with a different name...although "High School Architect, by the makers of Prison Architect" is pretty catchy, I think. It would certainly get people to take a closer look at it.

Chris has, in the past, expressed a desire to move forward, not sideways. Sequels are a sideways move. They lack creativity and innovation, and don't represent what IV seeks to be (assuming that my understanding of past statements is on the money). I believe that the phrase is "IV don't do sequels."

Aren't schools just like prisons anyway with generally less murder.

Also make it a sports sim :wink:

It would be interesting however to through out the idea/ other 'theme' ideas in the crowd funding and see what gets the most attention.

A requirement by microsoft to get Darwinia into XBLA.

It was also a spin-off, not a sequel.

I almost pre-emptively discussed Multiwinia. First off, as was pointed out by Xocrates, it was a requirement of Microsoft to get Darwinia onto XBLA. Everything on XBLA needed to have multiplayer at the time. Second, it isn't really a sequel so much as tacked-on multiplayer content (that is a pretty decent game on its own). Finally, I get the impression (though I could be wrong) that Chris really hated working on Multiwinia---it really seemed to sap his energy and patience. It wasn't what he wanted to do, but what he had to do.

I still can't tell whether you're mocking yourself, you're being serious, or you've never been serious about this.

100% serious The school aspect would just focus more on the sports sim strategy.. Even though you do have to make sure your star player's grades stay up :) *switch his economics class to gym

Teacher spy that puts out a pop quiz on game day.

Heckling parents that lower confidence.

Hot girl cheerleaders that bend over at opportune times.

How about, instead of a weak little quip, you actually write something worth reading.
