Brainstorming game 1

Game 1

- Off-road Hawaii

- Driving Simulator

- The game takes place on the islands of Hawaii, more specific on the various deserted roads and beach shores. The players will have a variety of off-road vehicles to choose from, including JEEPs, Monster Trucks, ATVs, Motor Cross Bikes, a selection of Military Vehicles such as Humvees, etc.
Goal of the race: Be the first to cross the finish line!

The gameplay will mainly be focused on the multiplayer part where the objective is to beat your friends in order to unlock new vehicles and upgrades. The multiplayer part can be local, online, or both. When a certain player level is reached, an option to customize your own stage becomes available. These stages can be shared and played online, thus creating an incentive for continual development of the game.


I believe the Open Source driving simulation engine TORCS will live up to the requirements of this game. It already includes damage and collision control, wheel properties, aerodynamics, etc. Further elements are easily added to the engine, so it should be possible to create and add new levels and vehicles. No specific AI is needed, and the graphics of the engine should be able to do the job.
