Jumping off of what @Hobusu said here:
I like this idea, here’s how I see it playing out.
- Definitely should have each person have a go at designing their own character, unless they want to bring co-designers in. Design by committee doesn’t seem like a great way to do things, unsure if that was intended in the original idea. At any rate, it feels like a good idea to have a “game jam” approach where people just throw stuff down.
- With that in mind, I think it’s better to invite designs from a particular series/film/franchise/what-have-you, because then you don’t have umpteen different (but often similar) takes on the same core concept. That could be pretty fun.
I’d definitely have to give this a shot; I have a lot of random ideas hovering around in my Google Drive, but don’t have the confidence to bring them out on the forums. Having a lower-pressure atmosphere for it would be a nice way to encourage me to try things out and get feedback.
