Knightmare video game idea

Post by nin_ken_dog » Tue Dec 13, 2005 4:04 pm

I think that if Knightmare was ever to return, this would be the ultimate thing to do for fans. A video game similar to this:

http://ps2.ign.com/articles/496/496333p1.html

Imagine speaking to the characters. You could have some options like how far a character would sidestep when you told him to sidestep or configure certain options to certain words. You could also play it over the internet. One player's screen is nothing but the floor, inventory, life, and level number, but is able to hear commands. The other player can see everything including an icon of your dungeoneer. And after it's all done, you could watch your whole journey via recorded segments.
Say hello to the goblins and ask them if they would like a good present.

Great idea, I think that would be brilliant to play, if it was good enough quality. Probably for now the closest thing to being a dungeoneer!
This really shows how much technology has changed since Knightmare was first produced.

Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy it here!

I've been creating a 2d/3d version of Knightmare.
Using TV sound/picture footage, I have managed to create a convincing adventure game.

It replicates the TV show to quite an extent with realtime running life-force, quest bar (as seen in the later series'), and character dialogs.

Both old and new rooms feature from "I'm a troll, roll de roll", Corridor of Blades, and even that famous Ridolfo/pooka scene! (I like-a-da pookas!!)

There's a Treguard intro, menus, clue items, blockers, geists, spyglass and a whole lot more!!
I'll try and keep you updated.

I'll email screenshots etc on request as I don't have any on the net yet!

regards every one and hope you have something to talk about now!
Keep a look out for my Knew Knightmare PC game!!
V1.0 coming soon!!!!

I suggested another variation on this earlier, but I guess nobody liked it :'(

There was a reality-tv (bleurgh!) gameshow in which contestants (in two teams) entered a virtual world and competed against each other. The world would also be accessible to the public similar to WoW. Obviously alot of what the teams encountered would be scripted/driven by the program, but there would be some public/player interaction too.

Would be cool to get to sell your apothecary items to a passing dungeoneer ;D

What I want to see is a Multiplayer game, where you can have up to four palyers (1 Dung, 3 Adv) the person who plays as the dungeoneer would have a blank screen, on which they saw what was in their hands, a representation of their feet/hands moving, and a list of keys
(Jump "space", Item 1 "1")

The advisors woulod communicate using an integrated voice chat program, and failing that typing messages.

Of course if Insight or other seeing spell were used, the Dungeoneer would see as the advisors did.

Some helpful voiceovers from Treguard...

mixed in with the voice reckogniiton software and perhaps the Televirtual Text to Speech engine...

On the reality tv note, wouldn't it be cool if we had a KM world that celebrities competed in (much the same as WoW), and we watchers could log on, generate pookas and other characters and use our skill lists to stop them finishing the game? :o

Certainly is, it's just you don't have to be talented to be a celebrity these days, I'm afraid. :-[

yeah- I kinda noticed.

I mean, Chantelle-

alright, she's quite fit, but even the Brollachan's got more brains than her!!!

Oh- and look at some of the music around today?

pussycat dolls?

Cheap Leo-sayer dance remixes???

Chris Brown

..i mean- who?

(not the lighting dude from Knightmare!)

I'm a rap and dance artist and I studied the music business for 2 years at college and I aint got no where yet!!!
(see my site: http://ww.freewebs.com/djoska)

Oh- and the amount of confusing kiddsies programmes on the TV now- all cheap nasally-american voices and the same animation styles!!??

And have you seen what some of the kids are watching on the BBC-
Tracy Beaker, Basil Brush, Ker-ching! (???)

they have the same cast members and all of the (sometimes spoilt, slutty, or annoying) storylines give us the little ratstas we have writing on our walls, messing about on our railway lines (I am a railwayman), and randomly "Happy Slappin'" people!!!!

Did you hear about the boy who watched Jackass and killed himself recording himself with a camera hanging himself from his bunk bed!!!!!

TV IS DANGEROUS!!!! (and often stupid)

...but I do like Jackass. Wee man- I want one of them!!

pahh- had to get that out!!!



ANYway, last night was spent programming the trial-by-spikes puzzle.

It looks good!

And I worked on the card puzzle too- drawing the playing cards was the hard bit!!!!

And the litle goblin runs after you and falls down the hole if there's one!!!

And the sewers of goth looks impressive!!!

OMG that boy's loud!!!!!!! (just watching on Challenge!!)

"YEAH- YOURE IN A ROOM, AND IF I SHOUT LOUD ENOUGH, I'LL SCARE THE SKELETRONS AND LORD FEAR WILL BE ABLE TO HEAR ME!!!!"

alright, alright!!!

You should put that in the game, somehow.

If there's any time that you have to enter your name, program it so that if you put in "Gideon" you get an extra "Oh my god!" counter which increases at random. Every time it passes a multiple of 10 a skull ghost appears... or something similar.
