If Earth gets messed then why would we go to another Galaxy, do you know how huge they are?
It would be easier just to go another planet within the Galaxy (e.g. Mars).

And I don't like the idea of the protagonist being human, it's too cliche, we beat the bad guy, the good guy always wins, the thing is, it's always biased towards our side: I'm trying to kill you because you did something bad to me and therefore I'm the good guy (the so-called bad guy is probably thinking the EXACT same thing).

Spice it up a bit:
  • NO human's
  • Protagonist is alien
  • Story is to kill the bad side, and as it turns out, you are the bad side and the other side was trying to protect the rest of the Galaxy from your side...

well, i never mentioned anything about a bad or good side. it's just i feel there should be a little bit of familiarity... of course that's up to the team not just myself.
like almost cool mentioned, it's probably going to be open ended... like fable, where you choose who you are... which is also the reason why i suggested a human protagonist, so you can choose to adapt to any place/race...

the reason for another galaxy is: the original idea of our game... which is that everything will be original... that way we can be creative... if the game were to take place on mars, there would be no lifeforms and it's not really habitable by living things (or is it o_O)

Well of course, we know that humans have not been exactly...good hearted in history.maybe the main charachter should be an alien.

or there couldnt be a good or bad side.just survival. and the enemy is the same.where you feel remorse for the enemy because they are in your same situation.  :-\

so is the storyline going to be linear, or open-ended?

Oh now I understand what you meant, I guess choosing better, and the story's going to be open-ended I believe.
The other Galaxy/Mars thing was because of the stuff you said about humans.

If this is going to be original then we're going to have to think of the 'craziest' things (un)imaginable, something the players will find very different from the stuff 'different' their use to.
Any ideas, I've got nothing good?

AAAGH!i just thought of something original...i think..but yes,som fictional/non fictional thing,like WWII,you play as an alien going underground with disguises and stuff,and killing hitler and them from the inside.hitler didnt commit suicide,he was assasinated..by an alien.too late for any more plots?

Yeah, and the alien was hired by the America's CIA, a few German's saw it but the CIA denied it, because they wanted to keep it a secret because the aliens asked them to because thousands of years ago, there was a war between Human's and Aliens.
And the main character (you) find this out as you read Alien history 'books' and older Aliens give you there flashbacks and the CIA give you information once you 'persuade' them.
But then the High Human/Alien Council of the Milky Way decide you know too much and decide to kill you and call it an 'accident' at work, finding this out, you go into hiding.

I would make for a good game, but then if we wanted historical accuracy (except for the Hitler assassination part), we'd ALL have to have knowledge on the subject. :'(

Extra ideas: the aliens live can for several hundreds of years in a lifetime, that's why the story takes place over 300 years (space travel isn't fast)!
Starting at WW2, and then ending at 22xx, that's where you go into hiding!
WW2 (and all that knowledge you find out about) isn't the only part of the story, you also have to protect your 'people' from invasions from other aliens (different species), and stop other wars between other species.

And: global warming was caused by several Alien spacecraft hovering over Earth, but having a spacecraft invisible creates a lot of heat, the CIA realize this and order you to move the ships away, but the rest of the human population don't know this and keep 'combating' Global Warming, and thus create a 'Nuclear' Winter. :o
The whole Earth freezes over and so the Aliens have to get every living thing from Earth to Mars, as well as most of the water (this is where the Humans find out about the Aliens). :P
Mt. Olympus Mons is no longer the galaxy's highest mountain.

BTW: this whole idea just came to me after im not a people person73 inspired me with his post. ;D
We should have a vote on whether we want this idea or something else.

well i think thats cool.but going too far into the future is quite cliche.so maybe year 2247 and WW8.We dont need to go very far into the future because every invention makes the world invent faster creating a snowball effect 8) . but i do vote for  this. ;).

and instead of mars how bout something in another solar system.like B328.sounds nice.

meybe the rival alien tribes are planting mutants and beasts on that planet.and sending bombs paked with mutagens.

and at the begginning of the game.You pick your player from this.


humans
aliensaliens other tribe

and then you choose from that your person.say 3 different humans.1st human unlocks the second.beat them and you unlock aliens.etc.

each one is like its own game.and their all interconnected.

I would make for a good game, but then if we wanted historical accuracy (except for the Hitler assassination part), we'd ALL have to have knowledge on the subject. :'(
and i agree w/ tanzim.my parents wouldnt like me researching the holocaust. :) good idea tho ;)
