So I recently watched the video in which Jools was asking what type of games that consumers and renegade fans would like to see, before I begin I'll just clear a couple of things up:
1. Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section, on initial glance this seems the most appropriate place to post a suggestion or idea.
2. I'm new, and this is my first post. I hope I don't mess this up!
3. I apologise too if this is a bit essay like, it's just that I feel like I want to share my thoughts after playing three great titles on the DS.
Upon reading some existing suggestions in which some people are sort of saying make this but for ds make that but for DS I think this won't be possible due to patents/copyright issues. I also don't like the concept of porting a classic game or another game from an existing console, especially with regard to the 3DS as it could potentially end up like the 3D movie industry in which everything is done with a machine and no real skill or effort is put into the work to produce the 3D effects/imagery/craftsmanship.
Without knowing the full power of the Nintendo 3DS and hearing that it's hard for developers to get their hands on the hardware itself I also believe it's possibly too early to try and suggest potential games until the true power of 3DS is known.
I am a firm believer of sticking with your bread and butter, while diversity is good, it's not always the safest option and can lead to long-term issues. Many people are aware of 'shovelware' ds titles that exist that were rushed games and didn't really find a core of gamers which contributed to their poor performance in the ever-developing video games market. It's not going to come as a surprise to some, but I believe that the Dementium franchise should go 3D!
It's really got all the potential attributes for success at a 3D level, with oncoming sprites in 3D and improved graphics/audio and a more powerful system to work with. Elements such as being able to jump and frighten the player can be done so with more effect, the idea of a huge mutant coming out and attacking me really excites me while being slightly unnerving at the same time.
Those who recently watched the nintendo tokyo press conference will have noticed the way the 3DS can be moved to work with the surroundings it's inside, imagine if you can turn your own rooms into lairs filled with monsters that need putting to sleep once and for all. The possibilities are certainly there to be explored.
I think for the game to really fit in with both the aims and possibitlies by the existence of the 3DS multiplayer gaming would need to be encorporated. I'm by no means an expert but I believe co-operative play could be something worth looking at for a game like dementium. Aswell as some competive modes too perhaps going through previous levels with rewards for completing the fastest or without dying etc.
Dementium 1 and 2 were really great games and I think a 3D edition on the nintendo 3DS would be welcomed with open arms by those who are familiar with the previous games, to bring in new customers the options with stereoscopic 3D horror and surprise will certainly lure in people who may not have played the previous games too.
Would love to hear some thoughts and opinions on this, thanks for reading (if you did) kind regards.
