Happy Stupid Game Idea!

Post by Pepp on Mon 26 Mar 2012 - 1:59

Insectivore
Because We Consider the Insects

Preamble
This thread is solely made because I get a partial idea this morning about a game, strategy game like AOE III, whose civilizations are insects. When you kill a unit, it can slowly decompose, but before it did, you can gather it like a food source. Flowers contain honey, that can be nutrition if kept inside granary and switched (takes time).

Resources: nutrition (resemble food), material (resemble wood), population, honey (resemble coin)

There are 5 civs, both of them shared same units:
1. Worker: Work like settler in AOE III. Cost 100 nutrition, worth 70 nutrition.
2. Queen: Work like town center. Can move slowly. Train eggs, that have to be keep on holes. To activate cost 1500 nutrition, worth 3000 nutrition.
3. Drone: The ones that used to activate young queen. Cost 800 nutrition and 200 honey, consume 50 nutrition per time, worth 500 nutrition.
4. Soldier: Melee unit. Cost 200 nutrition and 50 honey. Worth 300 nutrition.
5. Larva: Let me say children. Comes from eggs that hatched from holes. Have to sent to barrack (become soldier or scout) or to chamber (become worker, young queen, or drone).
6. Scout: A scout. Cost 100 nutrition and 100 honey. Worth 150 nutrition.
7. Young Queen: Let me say like a town center wagon. Can fly. Have to be f*cked by the drone ( :lol: ). Cost 750 nutrition and 200 honey. Worth 1500 nutrition.

Every civ shared these buildings:
1. Queen Hall: Place where the queen reside.
2. Holes: House, place to keep larva till they are old enough to be sent into barrack or chamber.
3. Barrack: Place to grow the larva into soldier or scout. Also to train mercenary.
4. Chamber: Place to grow the larva into queen, worker, or drone.
5. Granary: Place to keep your nutrition and honeys. It can switch nutrition into honey or vice versa.

Civilization:
1. Black Ant
Resemble all black colored ants, despite their taxonomy or real habits. Uniqueness: Attacker civ, soldier cost far cheaper.
Bonus:
- Queen lays eggs faster
UU:
1. Bullet Ant: Pikemen unit. Cost 400 nutrition. Worth 300 nutrition.
2. Jumper Ant: "Archer" unit. Cost 350 nutrition and 50 honey. Worth 150 honey.

2. Honeypot: Ant that will increase honey inside his body when he eat. To get the honey, he have to be harvested by worker. Cost 100 honey. Worth as much honey inside his body at the time.
-----------
3. Weaver Ant
Resemble weaver ant genus. Uniqueness: House provide more pop, can build farm.
Bonus
- Gather from leaves faster than any other civ.
UU:
1. Farmer Ant: Ant that can farming. Cost 120 nutrition. Worth 80 nutrition.
2. Harvester Ant: Ant that can harvest leaves to be planted. Cost 120 nutrition. Worth 80 nutrition.

Other food sources:

Some things:
1. All animal consume nutrition or honey, so if you have nutrition or honey number 0, your insect will be dieing.
2. Lunch Time clock: every 3 minutes, all animal will consume their food (nutrition or honey).
3. Larva has metamorphose meter, so if it is come to zero, it will turns into worker or soldier (possibility 3:1).

- For Drone, fertilizing a female
6. If your colony has no more nutrition or honey, there will be a cannibalism in your colony.
7. Queen, after being fertilized, will be unable to move fast. It can lays up to 1000 eggs.

Here is the maps:
1. Swamp
Some trees grows up on the deep for insect water. Some frogs and fishes hides under water. There are some leaves to be used as boat, or flies to be enslaved.
2. Vineyard
A vast field of grapes. You'll find that you can easily get honey, or clapped by human...
3. Home Sweet Home
You're inside an old fashioned house, maybe on the roof, or under table. Granny and child will be problem for you, beside their dog and pet spider.
4. City Park
Some people goes picnic and they are good resource source for you. However, they bring an insectivore, dangerous enemy to you.
5. Backyardigan!
You're at backyard, with a sand pond, some child toys, and place to fight for.
6. Desert
A desert, some tarantula under the soil, or scorpion on the dunes will be problem.
7. Pond
A beautiful Japanese pond to fight for.

Another dangerous animal: The Japanese Hornet

Basically you'll need a very large and powerful army to destroy even one of them!

And he stays to let this idea of game as idea of game, not IDEA OF MOD. WTH will happen if AOE III include some giant INSECTS?!

And eh, I do some biological research and found that Hornet can be independent civ, as some of it life socially.

Well, building an insect culture isn't as easy as making man's culture. Man's cultures are clearly has some big similarity, but insects, no. Some of them are truly different.

For now, here are the list:
1. Ant Class (not culture, as the type of building made by weaver ant in the real world is different with the other class): 3 civs.
2. Termite Class: 1 civ
3. Bee/Wasp Class: 2 civs.

We don't need termites, they're blind and only 1 kind (I think).

And Wasps are more related to Ants than to Bees.

They're blind, that's why they have to train some cockroach mercenaries :lol: .

And no, there is no wasp civilization for now, but they can be added...

Here are the answers why I added termite:
1. They are mortal enemy of the ants.
2. They life socially.
3. They are small enough.
