Okami is a nice idea(I wonder how many people still remeber this game) Japanese myths and Marvel/DC are always good but they are pretty common But what about postapo? This one is always in fashion and it can be presented in many ways, You can always add some fantasy to it and make fantasyapo, or something.
Postapo is a shortcut for post apocalyptic, like games: Neuroshima or Fallout. It can be easily and freely modified, added some fantasy etc. I asure You if You would be able to think of something with postapo and mix into that idea some fantasy, it would be a 100point score shot
Well in todays times what idea is not beaten to death? It's pretty hard to be original, I know because I sit on the net everyday looking for arts etc. But mixing technology and magic is a hard topic but if well made, is a sucess. Ever heard of a game Arcanum? it's a good example.
Ideas can be reused if done well. Not to say modern gamingis noyt done well it is, I am just tired of seeing it.
Arcanum? Nope. I am not much of a gamer anymore since I started at Ringling. Far too busy doing homework and working for bills and such. I am pretty far behind the curve as I also only have a PS2. Though I have watched my friends play these games many many times.
Perhaps some Ghibli, Okami and Marvel? Those are all pretty popular and I know you love Okami a lot as well as the other two. Plus Marvel stuff in your style is really cool and I think it flows well in Okami and Ghibli as well. ;A;
