Im gonna start this up again seeing as the site went down and the thread disappeared before. So what genre would your comic be if it was a video game?

Burtonville would be an action rpg.

I made this:



Not excited about it anymore seeing as its old news but it would be cool if any of you wanna do the same.

Hhhm…I'd say No Talnet would be a hack and slash side scrolling game.

for my current webcomic? I think that'd be difficult as it's designed to be a set of short stories. MAybe some kind of episodic adventure game (perhaps myst-like point'n'click thing) revolving around some tome of strange tales or whatever, haha.

It'd be a very bad game, but roleplaying, I guess…? Yeah, probably. A lot of my characters were originally inspired by Harvest Moon characters after all. I'm really hardcore.

RPG/Shoot ‘em up. Definitely. In fact, I’m working on something like that right now. Won't be a bullet hell shooter though… I'm not good enough to make those yet. Too bad when I do start working on it I fall asleep and end up with QWERTY on my forehead when I wake up… O_O

The comic we're working on was a game. If the comic became a game, it'd probably be the same type: pen n paper rpg. If it had to be an electronic game, then a text-based game like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

I have no clue. I've never even thought of that.

Currently it would probably be a very very very bad fighting game or first person shooter game.

But future installments can be a realtime strategy game (like Command and Conquer or Starcraft) or an adventure game like Solid Snake or something.

I dunno.
NOW UPDATING!!!

'Many Tales of Minigirls' would be an eroge (ero game).

This is a really interesting thread! Honestly, I'm not a gamer by any means, so I've never thought about it until I saw the thread title haha.

BTRN is kind of primarily a drama, but I can't imagine dramas make very good games, excluding those anime visual novels but that's debatable. But, because of the “political activists” aspect and the fact that basically all major fight scenes are fought with arms, the first thing I thought was, first-person shooter haha :D

It's ironic, though, because I tried an FPS once and was absolutely terrible at navigating it. I wouldn't even be able to play my own game…

I figure All Saints would probably be a mix of third-person shooter and hack-and-slash fighting; something like Gears of War 2 meets Prince of Persia (the original trilogy, before that aweful Xbox 360/PS3 version). Plus the soundtrack would probably be mostly heavy metal songs.

A niche exploration rpg with maybe a random generator for when the player enters the Subterranean each time. It would make sense, since that's how it already works, more or less.

That, or whatever Metroid is considered. Exploration platformer adventure? I would go 2D in this case.

Edit: Oh, you know what? Survival Horror might be the best genre when I think again about it. More Silent Hill than RE.

Mine would basically be GTA4. The plans I have set out for it, though it would be a GTA4 with a bit of war involved.

Point and Click Adventure reminiscent of the old Lucasarts DOS games. And yes, Insult Fighting would be included, damnit.

Puzzle game! I like puzzle games. ^_^ I'd prefer a series of different puzzles, perhaps in a themed world. It could have a story mode, I guess. I'd like that for either of my comics. (Used Books would also work as an RPG or adventure game, and the cast is big enough that it could be a fighting game – but I like puzzle games.)

Gelotology has no story, so it wouldn't need a story mode. It might be more of an “explore” kind of game set in a big lab or university. There might be puzzles or things to solve in different rooms. I remember playing games like that when CD roms were first available.

The most obvious genre for Shades would be an action/adventure game but, given the back-stories I've developed for each of the main characters, it could also incorporate some RPG elements.

Ideally, it would have a different style of gameplay for each of the “flashback” sequences. I could see some missions working as stealth sections while others could almost be old-school platformers. Oh, and a driving section which would let you take control of Boudicca's “chariot” … Hell, I'd buy it!

I think a puzzle/action-adventure would be an interesting way to go for Carnies. Horror survival simply wouldn't work since that genre needs a dark and serious atmosphere for its scares to work and there's very little about Carnies that's serious.

Mind you, setting up a tabletop RPG could also be fun. I'd pretty much just have to design all the traps, come up with some rules that'd be unique to the game, figure out some enemies and then let players loose in my universe. Actually, that'd be something to think about for later on…

My comic: No Heroes would be kind of like a mix between Mirror's Edge, Fallout 3 and a very old game: Baldur's gate.

In the beginning of the story, kind of where No Heroes is now, it's about one man running from the law. this turns into one man fighting animals and people living in a post-apocalyptic world and finally the end of the first book will be a group of people going on a quest.

the second book, and then of course the second game, will be back to fallout, one man looking for revenge…

It'd be really cool if I could put my characters into game characters, I think the idea of No Heroes on the X360 would rule…

Apocalypse 2030 would be a mash-up of several different genres, open sand box, shooter and action/adventure. Think of GTA in a post apocalyptic world run by corrupt leaders and nuclear wars.

A Hard Boiled Detective would translate near perfectly to the Point and Click adventure. In fact, I've been wanting to make that for quite some time, except I haven't even managed to learn AGS. Probably never going to happen.

Mine would be rated NC-17 for sexy situations.

Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

My comic The Wanderers would be an RPG kinda like KotOR in my opinion. I'll probably make a poster thing like same later.

Then it would be banned in Australia… Because only little children play Vidya games here and if an adult were to play a game with sexy stuff in it then they'd automatically transform into a rapist paedophile, zoophile, necrophiliac psychopath.

So lucky us.

…But then it's a humorman game so no loss.

Yeah, at first I thought it was annoying having an American xbox in Australia (can't just go to an EB games and buy anything, have to get games online) but now I've realised I'm lucky. Also US games are cheaper.

and to stay on topic, my other comic, Out There, would probably be a point and click game.

At twice the price that you'd pay for US game. :)

Yep, You're way better off. ^_^

I go into EB games for convenience and because I'm stupid. and impataint and only ever buy games on impulse.

You could make some of Pinky TA into an OK shooter, some of it into a reasonably fun mecha sim, and the rest into a really dull RPG.

Well, Smelly Brownies The Video Games nearest equivalent would be Viewtiful Joe.

And that would be AWESOME!!!



As for Shaman Quest, while it would be cool as either an RPG or an action-adventure game (like God Of War), I would like to see it as a fighting game:

A shooter, but with mission objectives, ala ‘Splinter Cell.’ With the added dimension of building creatively, a bit like ‘Roller Coaster Tycoon.’
