Good job guys (and the sounds was a lot better then the CAA broadcast).
I was also thinking along the same lines as Nate as far as a Christian game goes. Though I did also think Omegas had considerable merrit (though would require considerable creative writing). I liked LA's general idea, but it seamed like there would be a lot more that could go wrong with the model or become overly controversial.
The idea that I have been mulling over would be sort of like Nates, but with a bit more story involved.
I would pick the life of King David as the story, though you play as a no-name character who exists at the same time as David and watches the events of His life unfold next to him. In this sense the player wouldnt nessisarily be able to rewrite the actual story told in the Bible, but would be the players eyes into that world.
Sort of the Medal of Honor way of progression, but not an FPS. Where you storm the beaches of Normandy, but your indevidual sucess cannot change the story so much as it simply determines whether you can move on or must repeat the event.
Lets say the main character starts as a soldier in Sauls army facing the Philistenes, and witnesses Davids defeat of Goliath and follows David as one of his Men of Valor from then on. Through the wars David is sent to fight for Saul, to Davids time in hidding, and even to Davids assention to the thrown.
At each arch you see the story played out in front of you, but the majority of your active roles are like those of Dynasty Warriors where you fight through the battles Gaining new warrior skills. Ofcoures the battles them selves would be more interesting with objectives (such as protect David or Defeat the Gate Garrison) to progress through rather then simply hacking and slashing continually.
I think it might also be worth the effort to give the player some interaction into the story. That is, not to change it, but by giving correct answeres at the correct times, would warrent bonuses in weapons/armor or strength. Either as rewards or skills earned.
These questions wouldnt be of the Bible quiz nature, but more along the lines of giving apropriate sugestions as events unfold. For example, while David is hidding from Saul in the rocks and is given the opertunity to Kill Saul. Do you sugest that David Kill him, or not? Either way you choose the story still progresses with the same result, but you may gain rewards for finding favor in Davids or Gods eyes based on your judgements/wisdom.
Anyway, this is still a rough idea. But I thought I would share it anyway.
Like I said, nice job guys. I look forward to some game reviews/ recomendations in the future.
