Hey guys. Recently I started to develop a mini-game called Last Standing. It's a retro arcade game similar to Pac-man, with a twist of having to fight (or avoid) zombies.

Here's a small preview of what I have so far:

Originally it was intended to just be a short fun bonus thing for the player, but I'm wondering would this be a fun idea to develop as its own standalone game with more mechanics such as:

-Finding and rescuing survivors
-Multiple guns and items to use to fight zombies
-Puzzles to solve on levels
-Limited inventory to carefully manage

What do you think? Would you play a full game like this?

The new game Dark Deception is doing something similar. You might wanna try looking at it and see what they're doing. That said, this shows lots of promise.

Ah yes, I've seen that game.Thanks! I think the most difficult part will be getting the action battle system together.

I really like the idea and the video looks already good. I'd be really interested to see the idea fleshed out and turned into a demo.

Thanks I am working on a demo now. Hope to have something more to show very soon.
If anyone has any interesting ideas or suggestions I would be happy to consider them!

Looking forward to a demo to try it out! I'm assuming that the power pellets in pac man will be bullets for the gun to take out the zombies for a limited time?

I'm thinking of multiple types of power-ups, like one to move faster for a limited time, one for stronger bullets, etc.

1st iteration on castle interior in Tiled.
I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.
The self-righteous indignation of family when you expect them to pay back money you've leant to them never ceases to amaze me.
Gamedev for relaxing? yes or no?
