The team has now came up with our idea . Finnnnnallly !!!
The idea is to design a Grand Strategy game. After the endless hours of gibber gabber and unrelenting drool we did come up with some great , wacky and outlandish ideas but the overall opinions were swayed with a Strategy game.
This suits me and i am very happy to be able to work on our project when it comes to this genre. I love Strategy games like ….. Europa Universalis + Crusader kings series , Command and conquer series (not the 4th .. hell noo !) , ages of empires , Total war and the tycoon games . You get the picture i love these games and have burnt a very big hole in my eye ball playing them for countless days . ” just another hour “”just one more turn” … ( ayee right ! ( Scottish linguistics lesson 0.001) )
So our idea is to incorporate and merge ideas from 3 existing games which wee love in this genre and combine them into the master game. For this we have picked Europa Universalis 4 , Rome total war 2 , Crusader kings 2 and borrowed a feature from Mount and blade .
– Europa Universalis 4 – http://www.europauniversalis4.com/
This game inspired us in many ways . Firstly its an “Wowsome” game but its game interfaces and its user interfaces are exceptional So i plan to have similar features of there interfaces for my design. The map in which the campaigns take place is another great feature with being able to play any countries that is in existence at date of which you choose to start with. The countries are made up of provinces i.e. Scotland have 5 .

The game is very much like Europa universalis as its a paradox creation and is seen as a prequel. The feature that wee love in this game is that in a provinces there are 3 locations in which you have to take control of before fully taking the Provence in this case its usually a city , church/parish and a fort/castle.
The battles in this game are epic at times . You set up your army the way you wish i.e. cavalry on the flanks , spearmen at the front etc. And you pick what units to move and also there stance and special ability if they have one. The army is represented on the map as a single general and we like both of these ideas . As the general fights more battles the more traits they receive and skill they get at such things as fighting.
-Blade Storm- http://www.bladestorm.co.uk/
In this game you play as a mercenary and during game play you can battle with any unit taking control of it . i.e. walk up to archers and fight as an archers then a spearmen group etc. And basically control that group of units whatever they maybe. So a feature we will incorporate will be the ability to choose which unit to fight with and become the commander of that unit .
well that’s alot to take in but to me it sound great . also website under construction ….. happy happy!!
