Leviathan Video Game?
« on: October 06, 2010, 09:53:16 AM »

So, we've got a topic discussing how cool Leviathan would be as a movie. What about a video game?

Personally, I think it would make a fantastic MMO.
You could have your own character, choose to be a Clanker or a Darwinist (or neutral, even), go on adventures, take part in the armies of either side and move your way up in the ranks... nifty stuff like that. :D

It could also be a really neat single-player game, too, though.
Something like where you could play through either Deryn or Alek's story, following the book plot. :D

The settings would be really fun to explore in a big open-world video game! And who doesn't want to pilot a walker/airship? That would be awesome.


I'm sure we've got plenty of gamers here, and I'm curious about how you'd feel about a Leviathan game! Let's go! :D

I agree. It would be really cool.

I'd definately buy it... and then spend countless sleepless nights trying to wrap it. ^^

I hate video games..

... But I love Leviathian so much, I'd definetly buy it and play it. And I'd probably get addicted to it ^^

Any sort of particular style of game you think it would be suited for? Realistic-ish graphics, more cartoony or anime? First person like a shooter, or third person like most RPGs? (Me, I'd love to be able to pilot a walker in first person- like, you'd just see your hands on the controls, and the landscape out the viewport. Fun. :D)

Hmm... third-person for most of the time (so you can properly see the undoubtedly gorgeous environments, all modeled on Keith Thompson's art, of course!), but switching to first-person when you're aiming a weapon or somesuch.  Or piloting a walker. :)

I'd like an MMO, but something like fable (if anyone's played it) would be good.

A different character with a gas mask on. Switch from Darwinist to Clanker. First-person shooter is better

Or it could be a game where its... 3rd person view when you're walking around and stuff and when you get inside a walker it  turns into 1st person view :)

These are all epic ideas. As for me, just as long as I can play as Alek.  ;)  With a cute Loris on my shoulder.

Dr. Barlow's eyes widened a bit. "What an odd suggestion."

"Mighty unsavory," her loris said.

Just so long as the loris doesn't give you "helpful advice"...  I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to kill those !@#$ fairies in Legend of Zelda:D

Hahahaa~ I totally know what you mean. xD (not about LoZ, specifically, since I don't play those, but most little helper thigns in games are freakin' obnoxious. e_e)

The loris should just sit there giggling creepily/adorably. xD
