Ideas for 'Source'
Since my tutorial on Tuesday, I have looked into other ideas that could spark a character for a game environment. Any feedback would be highly appreciated!
Books & Short Stories:
- Phantom Tollbooth
- Peter Pan
- The Hare & The Tortoise
- The Cunning Fox & The Clever Stork
- Goldilocks & The Three Bears
- Jack & The Beanstalk
- Three Blind Mice
- Hey, Diddle, Diddle
- The Hummingbird
- A child's invisible friend
- A child's dream
- A child's 'hero'
- An Emotion/Energy
My Favorite Ideas
I like the idea of either adapting the characters Peter Pan, Goldilocks or Jack from the books; The Hummingbird from it's poem or a child's invisible friend. I would take one of these characters into a more serious manner than they are already portrayed; and change their whole persona to make a hero/heroine based game's character. Overall, 'The Hummingbird' poem stood out for me, it is very descriptive and very bold; and in my own opinion could evoke quite a unique character to create a game from.
Yes, I am small, but can you move like me?
Can you fly backwards and hum like a bee?
Now you can see me! I've stopped for a while.
How you admire me. See how you smile.
Pay close attention! Don't even blink!
Look at my colours. What do you think?
I hover just briefly to suck up sweet nectar.
I guess you could say I'm a nectar collector.
Aviation designers have learned a few things.
From watching me fly, and my light perfect wings.
You may think I'm cocky or too confident.
But sit and observe. It will be time well spent.
