Repopulation

I'm just a simple guy with an idea; nothing new. However, after looking around for an engine I can use to make a solid 2D game, I found this and came up with my first game idea. Though, some advice or extended ideas are welcome :)

The Repopulation - A game set in 2015. Mankind has fallen to the hands of the zombie virus. Now the player needs to create a camp that will house survivors and recreate humanity.

The game is fairly simple. You make a camp, and build it up. Add defenses, extend the camp, grow the population, and most importantly, manage.

Everyday, a zombie horde will attack your camp. (which is why you need defenses). The horde won't be really powerful, mostly to test the camp. Also, the camp contains a 'headquarters'. If the headquarters is destroyed by the zombie hordes, you lose the game.

There is also other ideas for the game, such as bandits and missions for survivors in your camp. But I'll stick with the basics for now.

Let's see how it goes.

Hey Athenagames!

You might want to take a look at this

It's one of the more awesome entries in the recently ended stencyljam, and nothing to do with me, but it definitely shows what you want to do is possible, if not perhaps entirely original.
Not being original is hardly a crime though don't let it stop you!

Thanks! I'm currently planning the basic first level designs. I'll work on the environment, then the actors/AI, enemies, etc. And work on extensions regarding to resources, management, etc.

Which will take a bit of time. Originality does not matter much; as long as the game turns complete and not rushed.

I would be willing to offer help, but seem to specialise in rushed and incomplete games >< lol

I had a idea like that but it was more of a tower defence game.  I would have people running from zombies and the towers would have to save them.  if they lived their supplies would be add to the camp. I drop the idea because I just don't have time.
