Okay, so basically I need help formulating some ideas for my game. My main idea is that you play as the Grim Reaper, and you have to go around and reap people that are ready to die. I am trying to think up some storylines and stuff. Any form of idea is helpful and appreciated. I can send my "foundation demo" if you need it. Thanks in advance!

Depends if you want it to be serious or more on the silly side of things concerning the story

What if you take control of the person that will be responsible fot the other person dying?
You'll have to "defeat" him, so he dies, and then, you, as the grim reaper can take his body, mhahahahaaa.

I'm thinking of mostly serious but with some comedy aspects

Well if you go the more comedic route you could go with a storyline how death needs to fill his quota of souls or get fired from his 'job' - would also give you a goal to work towards.

If you go more serious well, the story could be about Death feeling remorse and learning to accept his role (by highlighting the positives about dying as a mercy)

that's of the top pf my head anyway

Have Pestilence, War and Famine be Death's coworkers, as NPCs. I second the notion of this being Death's job, and him/her being behind on his quota; you could also give it a bit of a corporate spin for purposes of satire.

I like the idea of Death being behind on work, and I also like adding the other three horsemen. I was already thinking of adding some sort of combat system... I will make sure to put y'all in my credits of course :)

If you want to include a combat system, you could Death have fight peoples guardian angels before reaping them.

This way you could also add some good story devices, like an antagonist angel who grew to fond of someone Death had taken from him/her and now tries to take revenge by helping other people resist Death or trying to rally up people against him or stealing/freeing already dead souls ... something like this.

The other way around Death also could grow fond of a human not wanting to take their life or giving them the option of joining him instead of going to hell/paradise/whatever kind of afterlife you want to have. This way you'll get another party member and also could let some story happen: Of course it's forbidden to things like this because humans can't handle the power or try to rescue their relatives who are still alive etc. and that's what eventually happens and then Death has to deal with it ...

There are a lot of possibilities for this topic :)

Ok, so you're the girm reaper. Who is your boss? And how do they benefit from the reaping? Answering those questions in an interesting way should get you to an interesting story...
