Hey guys,
I may be able to get a game made over the summer.
Probably something like a flash / ipod / android game.
Simpler would be better. Something with some type of ERBness added to it would be cool.

So heres the plan.
Come up with ideas for games here. I will try to get at least 1 made via some people I know by the end of the summer (September).

Your game ideas have to be very specific. They have to include:
what controls will be (for a touch screen)
Is the game multiplayer or single player
How the game will work, what the games about, give examples of how the game will work, be specific, why people will like it, etc.
Graphics will be terrible. Maybe even stick figures ;)
So don't try to rely heavily on graphics.

Soo try and come up with some good game ideas! I will see what I can do with them.

Of course, all games would be free to download/play.

I think a combination between Super Smash Bros Melee/Brawl and ERBoH would be cool.

Yes, but please design specific details to the game for me ;)

And I'm not sure how long it'll take to make. So please be patient :)

I'm going to go from basic to advanced

I'm going to do a simple walking,collecting game like Super Mario Bros.
Then I'm going to add attack buttons for all characters.

Dont you need some type of permission to use the Epic Rap Battles Of History title, and most ERB characters? Ex. Vader, Kirk, and Cat In The Hat.
Ps. If this does get done, could I be a secret character as well?

I am willing to do the basic graphics if someone is willing to animate them. Also here are some ideas for characters from the ERB (All I can draw, again, if someone can animate them):

John Lennon: Shoots rainbows and other LSD like things.
Beethoven: Some type of "Fury" mode.
Nice Peter: Guitar weapon.
Epic Lloyd: Just punches but twice as powerful.
Mario: Coin tossing and fireball.
Luigi: Coin Tossing and ice ball.
Mr. Rogers: Invisibility.
Mr. T: Mohawk Gernades.
Chuck Norris: Grows into a giant and shoots lighting but can only do it once for 30 seconds a match.
Columbus: Sword.
Kirk: Phaser.
Wright Brothers: Jumps up and bombs with plane.
Bill O' Reilly: Can rise from dead once.
Hitler: Army of Nazi attack where they come for one move, can use 5 times every 2/3 minutes.
Darth Vader: Force toss.
Lady Gaga: Agility or Speed using roller-blades.
Sarah Palin: Rides moose for 45 seconds.
Justin Beiber: High note sing stuns players for about 12 seconds.
Gandalf: Pounds down staff and does damage to all players, can use three times.
Dumbledore: Teleportation by clicking mouse twice in what direction. Can use whenever just cause.
Abe Lincoln: Block attack with skull.
Hulk Hogan: Fury mode.
Randy Savage: Bull Running attack charge thing.
Albert: Electricity attack.
Hawkings: Machine Guns attached to chair.
Genghis Kahn: Extra-durability.
Billy Mays: Oxyclean attack where he sprays it in opponents eyes and they are paralyzed for 10 seconds.
Vince: Super-speed.
Easter Bunny: Explosive eggs.
Ben Franklin: Jump attack and can hang in air with kite.
Kim Jong-il: Rocket Launcher special attack.
Dr. Seuss: Is kind of like Pokemon Trainer is Brawl and does not actually fight. Has Cat in The Hat do it.
Cat in The Hat: Paw swipe.
Thing 1 & 2: Frenzy attack.
Shakespeare: Can blow opponents back such as what he did to Dr. Seuss in the rap battle.
Napoleon Dynamite: Can throw dynamite that at first does not explode but then later on after 4 seconds.
Napoleon Boneapart: Can shrink and grow back doing a super uppercut attack.
Leonidas: Can do an awesome Sparta kick and knock people all the way over across the screen.
Master Chief: Jetpack and Plasma rifle.
Micheal Jackson: Super hump.
Elvis: Glare mode where people are paralyzed from his beauty. :)

I am a cartoon artist such as Gonzossm on Newgrounds so I can do this. Just need some to be able to animate there movement. I can also do backgrounds.

We should be able to have DLC so if a new character comes I can add it in and such.

That was a lot to write.

For this game, A 2D Super Smash Bros. Brawl type that is multiplayer.

I will start on some rough drafts on some characters and such. Maybe a background or two. In black and white right now and will be awesome.

Castle Crashing, if anyone heard of that game, you could use it as a basis of your game,

It can hold unto tons of characters and some secret ones too,

It has pretty good gameplay too :)

Epic Doctor X

I can picture the game like a SSBB game.


Controls:

Up = Jump
Left = Left
Right = Right
Down = Crouch
W = Up attack
A = Left attack
D= Right attack
Enter = Melee attack
Space = Long-range attack
Shift = Special attack
Escape = Pause
Control = Mute


Storyline:

When you start the game you get to choose Pete or Lloyd.
You can change between them every fifth round. If Lloyd or Pete's not
batteling, then the guest star is counted.

I you finish every level without skipping any texts or muting anything, you
get the "forum" bonus. Then you get to battle every group, including every member
in the group

It's currently a Platformer and it's going to get upgraded with attacks and cutscenes as I go along.

You Mean Castle CrashERS? I Love That Game, And It Would Make QUITE The ERB Game. But It Would Have To Be A Flash Game Instead Of On The iPhone, And It Would Take Forever To Make.

Heres a picture of Hedgoeg's game so far:

I also forgot to save it, so all I am stuck now is a SWF, can't turn back to a FLA.

I'm guessing I will need to restart the whole process but this way, I can actually give a better touch.

So people stopped responding to this thread so I thought I would bring it back up. I am making the art right now, focusing on Chuck Norris, The Wright Bros., and John Lennon. I will upload those tomorrow hopefully.
