Title: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Skylar-Wa on March 22, 2010, 07:02:02 AM
should there be a Uglies video game??? what is your opinion?

I sent Scott Westerfeld a game idea that i had for a Uglies Wii game. This is what i put:
"So here's my idea:

    * the game would follow the storyline of the Uglies (you live life like you're Tally)
    * it would be a Wii game that you'd use the Wii balance board with
    * the Wii balance board is used to represent you flying on your own hoverboard and on the TV screen you can see (from Tally's perspective) that you are riding a hoverboard and traveling through Uglyville or Pretty Town ect.
    * you can use the wii remote to represent your water purifier or as tools you would use in the Smoke like a knife or sumthing

It isn't much and I don't know if people have thought of this already, but I thought this would be a very cool game
where you can feel like your hoverboarding in a way."

leave your opinions and suggestions here :D

well that would be kinda cool, Although the most awasom version would be one of those arcade gamed were you ride a snowboard except it's a hoverboard.
Also I don't think making stuff like that is up to Scott.

i know but he could tell someone about it and he could tell the people who make games what the storyline is and stuff you know
and so he has rights and stuff
and i like the arcade hoverboard instead of snowboard thing  :D

Yes, I'd so play this! It would be so awesome! Some of the plots could be to stay hidden in New Pretty Town or to hoverboard above the river successfully. Great idea!

I think it would and wouldn't be nice. I don't think it'd be nice because I love it just being a book. :D
It'd bug me if people who knew NOTHING about the trilogy bought that game. Hm. :/

But seriously, that hoverboarding sounds like fun. :D
And you can experience being an ugly, pretty, and special, etc.
And then you can meet Tally, Shay, and...Dr. Cable hehe.

Hm...oh yeah and try that software that shows how you want your face when you turn pretty.
That'd be really adventurous.

Same with me, I'd get really mad if people who didn't read Uglies got the game...

Well, the company would have to market it to all their customers, not just people who've read the books. Probably if the movie was a success they'd make this. Because video games based on movies make more money, and are therefore more common, then video games based on books.

Okay, I'd LOVE to fake-hoverboard on the Wii board...
But Nintendo would probably mess up the story...

True, but I'd still gladly put up with the terrible plot just to try it xD

me too, and an uglies video game probably wouldn't be rubbish, it would most likely be fun
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????

thats a good idea
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Shay-la-wa on June 03, 2010, 08:20:47 AM
Well, once Uglies is a movie, Nintendo will want to make a game for money.
We'll probably have a game in 2011 sometime.
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Nina-Chan on June 03, 2010, 08:33:31 AM
maybe a little later
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????

Come to think of it, they'll probs have a new console out by the time a game would be released lol =P

I would definantly buy this game if it was put out in stores, even though I usually dont play video games!
I Love the idea of Hoverboarding, that sounds like so much fun!
As for whoever put the idea of the scanning of your face to show you in pretty form, that would be AMAZING!! That sounds so cool!!
If a game maker could come up with an Uglies game WITHOUT screwing it up, that would be awesome!
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Mara-la on June 14, 2010, 10:11:03 PM
Theyd need Scott's help for that.
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Chloe-Wa on June 15, 2010, 03:28:44 AM
They'd have to have scott's permission anyway, but his input would be limited probably

True.

I would so buy that game.

No offense, but games that are based off of books/movies usually end up as a flop.  I'd rather see Ugliess/Pretties/Specials/Extras as a movie.



Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: shadley on June 17, 2010, 08:52:08 AM
No offense but movies aren't really any better. And this is us just thinking of it going as best as it could.
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Shadow-Thief on June 17, 2010, 08:55:25 AM
^ haha, you're right.

But I mean, I play video games, and there is just something wrong about trying to take a book/movie and making a game.  It just doesnt work.

Now, putting a book to a movie format would work a lot better, except it gets ruined 95% of the time.

Post by: shadley on June 17, 2010, 08:58:14 AM
I get what you saying, but we are all just talking if it was like our dream version of a game adaptation, but your right they do usually go wrong. I personally think Tv show adaptations are better, but even they go wrong sometimes. :'(
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: Shadow-Thief on June 17, 2010, 09:09:33 AM
^ the uglies would would make a great facebook alternative :D

Think of it...sorta like a virtual social life.  Ever been on Playstation Home or Xbox live?  Sorta like that, but with the world and technology and themes of the uglies...
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: shadley on June 17, 2010, 09:15:11 AM
That would be good too. Sadly I'm against Facebook, it would be better as its own site, like World of Warcraft or other MORPGs(Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game)
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????

Where you get to create your own character as an ugly!!
Title: Re: A Uglies video game????
Post by: shadley on June 17, 2010, 10:13:53 AM
Yea and slowly make your way as Ugly, Pretty, Special, and then any of the cliques from Extras(such as manga-heads,tech-heads, radical honesty, etc.) ;D
