Hi all,

I have been working on an upcoming online HTML5 game which will be called Arson.

The game is 70% complete and here is a general idea of it, but take it with a grain of salt since I have cut down a large portion of the game due to time restriction:

Fun fact: I have been working on this every single day since 28th November 2015! (45 days)

I plan to keep programming for 365 days.

The game.


Arson is a game concept I will work in the near future and I am really excited about it. :)

I am going to create a new game engine from scratch again and this time, it will be faster than my last game.

The game will also be available on your internet browser, Windows PC and Android, at least this is the plan for now.

It will be playable on most mobile devices if played through the browser version.

A very early screenshot of the game was my initial idea to start having some interest into the game.

Have a look yourself and share your own thoughts! I will be uploading new images and new features as development progresses.

I have still not started working on it though!

As you can see from the screenshot Arson is the guy shooting.

Two types of enemies will take place in the gameplay. Grounded enemies and flying enemies.

The game will also have its own virtual currency, which will be used by the player to buy new stuff.

The weapon choice is made at the start of each level.

After the player chooses the weapon, there will be no choice anymore.

The player also can choose not to choose any weapons at all.

As the player levels up, the weapons evolve.

My initial idea was a combination of Borderlands and an old game where you could choose the weapon, but I do not remember its name.

The dog and the eye, I know that they are so ugly for the moment, but they will change as the game dev progresses.

The player will also completely change with the boxes, so for now they are just a concept.

The weapons will have probably 3 effects. Slow, burn and poison.

Slow will slow the enemies.

Burn will burn an enemy while leaving flames behind to burn others.

Poison damages an enemy but it will be stronger than Burn as an effect.

The gun will also have a shooting angle. It will also have autoshooting.

There should be a village where Arson tries to save his underground or home, or maybe he goes on adventure.

The story

Arson is a guy who was playing with different toys but he always dreamed of playing with a gun.

His parents were very cautious that he does not play with guns because they are dangerous.

But as time moved on, Arson did not lose his passion to use a gun.

The world suddenly was part of an evil toxic infestation and weird creatures started to show up.

So one day he finally found a gun in the basement (have to think about this) and decided to protect his family with the weapon that they did not want him to use. 8)

The family was terrified by those mutants, but Arson did not care about it and kept going.

He tells the family that he has to move on and goes from one place to another to help others.

This is as far as I want to tell the story! :D

The marketing

The marketing is an important part of making this game and keeping the hype alive.

I will continue to post on different forums, mainly english, french and italian forums.

I cannot do this alone so I would be grateful if you help spread the word!

As for the time I would want to spend on promoting the game, I would say whenever I have free time!

Total forums expected that I will write about the Arson video game: 100.

The development

The development would normally be the most important part as far as I am concerned.

I will program the engine then create the game using it.

As for the assets, either I create them or I find some assets which might give the feel of the game.

Since the game has to be played on all types of devices through web, it will take a little bit more time to adapt the game controls.

I would expect total development time: 6 months.
