Instructables: The Game!

I think it's a great idea, but I wouldn't even know where to get started on the technical aspect, nor the legalities involved. The game is basically a walk through an instructables-inspired home-built city of interesting devices and systems all loosely (or even exactly!) based on actual instructables. During the games as you explore you stumble on different tasks that you have to complete. You find parts to complete tasks scattered about the city, or win them for completing smaller tasks. Thoughts?

actually even if no one is going to work together with me I could make the game, only then I'll make it like click-and-do, so like if you're in a room you can click on a door and you go through it. That's faster to make and those games can still be really cool.

I'm experienced with Adobe Flash and I can do design so I could participate in the making process if it's a collab.

you just lost the game
Your idea sounds really neat.

I'm currently developing an instructables game, but more along the lines of a mario-type game. No release date. Perhaps an alpha version this summer.

I thought about a side-scroller... I think that would be the best format to tackle things like Rube Goldberg machines. My idea is just a shadow at the moment. I could probably flesh out an entire game, but I don't really have any programming knowledge so it's a pretty big hurdle without collaborators.

Perhaps a format like Phun would work for building things.

Phun looks really neat! Thanks for the link!
Ha ha! My plan worked! You are now addicted!
Hmm, I'm using game maker free version (yes, I know that's terribly uncool). It has a nice drag and drop interface, with options to use code in it.

But what you are describing sounds more like a MMORPG-way beyond the scope of either that program or anything I can do. You're right, collaborators are definitely needed.

May I ask where your username came from?

MMORPG would sure be interesting! Way to make it really interactive and alive! Would be cool if it was possible as open-source. Keep me in the loop about your alpha! :)
