My Game Concept - Onbound
Hello, I've been imaginaring my game for my future. I'm not really good at drawing or 3D programming, so I wonder if the game devs out there would be interest or recommending me what I should change or something.

Since I can't really do anything, I put my game's ideas into a novel for the plot of this game. My game named Onbound, it suppose to be a choice-making game, but I put the ideas in my novel on Wattpad.

Plot: A teenage boy named Alexander Skulid, who doesn't seem to have a good life in his reality world, so he started imagine himself in a world without anyone judging him. With all the suffering and depressions he have face, such as family problem, get pick on by bullies and cyberbullies, he decided to hang himself in the dark locker room where he fully death-inside. It wasn't end there; he thought he would died, but mysteriously went to a world full of bizarre creatures, called Dreamals, which are humans (and sometimes anthropomorphic animals) made out of magic. All of them can spawn and remove their wings, but Alex doesn't know why he doesn't have his power, so he met other Dreamals within a community called Onbound, where all the Dreamals were controlled by a leader-rank (called Ancestor) Dreamal named Curiosity Lovelorn. All Dreamals were controlled by emotion chips, won't be able to shows pain, sadness, happiness, or even angerness. Alex seems to enjoy his life in Onbound, but not until a mysterious Dreamal, who doesn't confirm their information, told him that this place had someone who did not in control like him, so he tried to find those people and escape this community from being perfection. Unfortunately, it wasn't easy; Lovelorn have her community full secure and really hard to get out, so Alex and his friends go on an adventure on the planets, full of extraordinary things he haven't experience before.

Graphic: I think making graphic for this game seems really hard (or all graphics are hard), so I decided that maybe a simple animation I found for my inspiration:

Feast (by Disney): The animation takes so much efforts for a heart-warming short film, yet simple animation. Yes, my characters, humans, anthropomorphics, will have black pupils with no furs or much details. Click here for example: <YOUTUBE id="xS4Bq37EtGI" url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS4Bq37EtGI"><URL url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS4Bq37EtGI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS4Bq37EtGI</URL></YOUTUBE>

Here's A Plan: Another good example of simple animation is this short film. Their anthropomorphics characters are good and the environments are beautiful, like Feast short film. (I couldn't find the video so just search Here's A Plan on Youtube)


Choice-choosing: This concept is inspired by Telltale Games and Detroit: Become Human. Each choices, like conversation, did not affect the characters' relationships, but instead have choices shows up besides them like DBH. For example, Alex need to choose who should sacrifice, it would affect the future choices in next chapter or farther more. The concept also have tracking map that for players like branching map in DBH. If you choose something, you won't be able to rechoose it again. However, you can reset the game's file or chapter and make another choice. If you want to erase the previous chapter but you already complete the latest chapter, those two will disappeared and make you rechoosing again. For example, if you reset chapter 5 that you already completed chapter 6, that chapter you just finished will erased too.

Dreamals: Dreamals are the characters that are be able to do more than humans does. It can comes in any form: Elf-like human, feline, canine, wild animals, and even fish. But cannot be insects kind because insects are their livestock. Yes, Dreamals' foods are insects, whether it is butterfly, ladybugs, spiders, dragonfly, and caterpillars are their consumables.

- Dreamals' abilities: All Dreamals must have their special elemental power to represent themselves. They must have their symbol to represent their power, like on their clothes or their wrist. Their powers are limited, so if they are out of power, their wings and power will ran out of energy. The current Dreamal must content something to represent their power, like if I have a fire power, I must content something that provide heat.

- Dreamals' wings: All Dreamals does have wings to fly or travel. As a little, their wings would be small and weak, but it'll get big and stronger to use them anytime. Bird Dreamals already have them, but the rest of the creatures does had the same thing. There are variousion of wings, depends on their theme, elemental, and personality. Wings can be sensitive if it damaged or cutted. Like kite, if a pair of wings have a hole in it, the Dreamal wouldn't be able to fly easily. Not only for purposeful usage, but can spawn or vanish them so they wouldn't damage their wings by crushing or such.

- Dreamals' age: The age of all kind of Dreamals do have aging. They are usually takes like 5-10 years to age 1 year (5 Year = 1 Year older). Dreamal can't appeared as a person in the planet that easily. Instead, they're borned by a creature called Eileithyia Butterfly, a giant butterflies that can give birth to the new Dreamals who already shared a gene from their Dancestor (which is my next concept). Ancestor Dreamals are currently unknown how they are borned, but the possible reason is the longest living Dreamal since the planet is not even built. Lastly, they can only max age at 70 years, which is Ancestor age.

- Newborn: As a baby creature, Dreamal don't have parents. Unlike humans, they can survive without milk or nutritions. When they are 3 years old, they've born with a sharp teeth to consume anything as they pleased.

- Giving Birth: Dreamals cannot mat each other and give birth to a child. Only Eileithyia Butterflies can giving birth the child for a family. When a baby Dreamal were borned, they were put on adoption and depends on other Dreamal would adopt them.

- Anatomy of Dreamals: Dreamals doesn't have some body parts humans does. Such as nipples and belly button, they don't have any intestine to connect when they're only an insect. Like butterfly, they also can grow their wings if they're older. Their skin are softer color then their blood. Depends on their elemental, the skin are based on personality and power. All bloods have different colors, their taste and smell based on flavors. For example: Indigo = Berry Yogurt, Red = Cherry, Rust = Cinnamon, or Jade = Sage. Unlike some Dreamals, they have some extra body part like mutation or hybrid. Unlike humans, Dreamals doesn't grow with an anus or testicles for extracting the waste. Instead, if they've consume something, their food will digested into gas that coming out of their mouth, so they can only burp.

- Type of Dreamals: There are many kind of Dreamals. Humanoid Dreamal have almost the same ability of humans, but Animal kind Dreamals are like anthropomorphic species with wings. Like Zootopia, they have some special animal "aspects" in their lives. Such as dogs, when they saw something distract them, they would run and wagging their tails as they're playing catch or chasing. Sloth, too, have some special animal aspect; they're slow on everything itself but nothing else. Like, when they're going down, sloths for itself seems like slow motion, but doesn't apply to other organisms.

- Dreamals' language: There are variety of Dreamals' language, based on animal kingdom chart. Each languages are differ from species, like canines known only wolves, dogs, coyotes, or similar creature that consider canine, but feline only knows their own kind. Most of the time, they would talk like humans, but rarely talk secretly in Dreamals' language.

- Dreamals' livestock and animals: Creatures besides Dreamals are bugs and insects as a pet and animals. Mostly ladybugs and beetles are close to be a dog or cat. Caterpillar, millipede, and centipede are close to be snakes; some are poisonous and acts like them. Butterfly and winged insects are close to be birds, you know, they have wings too.

- Ancestors: Ancestor are Dreamals' brother or sister. They're part of their family that borned before the current Dreamal. They must share the same genes, gender and same species to be a true Ancestor. Personality and theme doesn't mind, but as a family is an important part of identical Ancestor. Ancestor must be 70, which is max age, to move from regular Dreamal to Ancestor. If they want to give birth a Dreamal, an Ancestor need to let the butterfly sucked their blood to get the gene, then give birth the Ancestor's brother/sister somewhere else.

Gameplay: I've been thinking that if there are no choice-choosing scenes, there would be objections to do during the game. All playable characters that you can have need to have purpose on doing objectives, like if you want to light up a dark place, you must use a light or fire elemental character in order to continue. The game will be in third person, too, like Detroit: Become Human.

- Animal Aspects: Some characters' species are different than each other, but have different purpose. All animal Dreamals are be able to run on 4 legs, unlike Humanoid Dreamal, but Animal Dreamals are comes in variety of species. Dogs can digging the dirt surface unlike cats, where they can run and jump on the roof.

- Combat: There are some boss battle scenes in Onbound, but convert into an interactive cutscene that let you press the buttons that show on the screen. If you don't press it, you would fail or receive a game over. The instruction is easy: press the button that shows up on the screen as quick as possible.

- Game Over: There are various death that lead you to Game over. If you choose a wrong choice, you would end up died. Not only the choice, boss battle or do nothing can lead to death.

Characters: These are my characters for the game Onbound. I haven't plan who are they and what are their backstory, so I put all my idea in the novel to reveal my characters' personality and appearance. Note: I made some rough design for all of them, so they would turned bad because I don't know how to draw.
