If I were to create a video game, I would spend a hell of a lot of time coming up with a great idea for it. But right now I can't get this bad idea out of my head so I'm gonna write it down. Hopefully this will let me forget about it. I don't have a lot of the details nailed down so bare with me.
OK, it's called "Darksliders".
Its a game about an army of evil (and dark!) sliders. I mean sliders as in the White Castle burgers of course. The game will even sport an official license by White Castle.
The antagonists will be none other than two skateboarders. Mark Gonzales who invented the "Dark Slide" grind, and Rodney Mullen who perfected it. There will be some kind of evil partnership going on there, I'm not quite sure how it will work. Probably, Gonzales will be the evil mastermind and Mullen will be the guy that goes out and does dirt to the protagonist. whenever Rodney Dark Slides a bench or something, an army of evil White Castle slider hamburgers will emerge.
Everyone still following? Good.
The protagonist role will be handled a bit like the recent Call of Duty games, by which I mean it will switch between multiple protagonists on multiple fronts. One of the main protagonists will be comedian Joe Rogan of Fear Factor fame, of course. Fear Factor Fame provides some nice alliteration. But anyways, the second main character would be Dave Snider. I just really really want Dave in a game as you can tell by one of my lists.
There will be cameo appearances by many many stars such as:
- Tony Hawk
- Ryan Davis
- Will and Norm (from Tested)
- Mike Glodberg
- Chuck Norris
- Harold and Kumar
- Lou Ferrigno
- Billy Ingram (founder of White Castle)
- and more!
Don't have all the details nailed down as to exactly HOW these people will all appear.
The game will be mostly linear with branching elements. It will be a third person action game essentially similar to Gears or Resident Evil 5, this was chosen purely to show off Dave's character model as much as possible. Weapons will include flamethrowers, shotguns, chainsaws, etc. Of course eating the slider enemies is an option that will have a risk vs. reward element to be later announced.
The White Castle official license element will be implemented in several ways, including a coupon for 50% of any meal at White Castle. Coupons will be included in each new copy of the game.
Were not talking about DLC at this time. :P
This is getting really long so I'll leave it at that. Would you guys give this game the thumbs up or shoot it down? What would you add or change? These are important questions people.
