This is an idea I like to give out to any indie horror video game developer who is interested in this idea I thought up. I don’t have the skills to make such a video game, but to anyone that does, I will happily give this away freely.
This idea was inspired by indie horror games like Five Nights at Freddy’s, Duck Season, and Bendy and the Ink Machine. The story goes that the protagonist found this unpublished comic book series about a dark superhero (like Batman, Venom, or whatever superhero you refer to be scary). Urban legends tell that the comics are cursed, and anyone that reads them will be hunted down by a twisted and horrific version of the superhero. Like how other horror stories go, the protagonist gets curious and takes a look inside the comic. Shockingly, he finds the villain of the comic is the protagonist himself and it foretells his death by the hands of the superhero.
The goal of the game is to follow the plot that is foretold within the comic while attempting to avoid the superhero who’s out to kill you. Depending on your view of the game, it will include like solving puzzles, mastering stealth, use various tools to your advantage, running and hiding, but most of all, it requires the player to remain calm. Otherwise, its game over (jumpscare or otherwise).
Please comment on what you think of my idea for a horror video game.
