BE-a-StOther Games

Have you ever wondered what it is like to 'be' another creature? To see from their eyes, to move their body, to perceive the world like they do?
It's a fascinating concept to me, as is the idea of reincarnation, which suggests that you could actually 'be' other creatures after you die. This game explores those concepts.
Basically, gameplay would involve taking control of one creature and exploring the environment using its various skills; some could fly, others could swim, or dig, or move rocks, or climb, or even talk or wield equipment. But this creature would have limited HP and a lifespan, and once your health was down (there'd be a lot of predators) or your time was up, you'd die and go to 'Heaven'.
Once here, you'd find your way to the Afterlife blocked by a gate which you're told won't open for you unless you are a 'Saint'; a title earned only by those who have sufficient life experience.
So you need to go back down to the physical world, to reincarnate in a new life, but the thing is, you can incarnate as any other lifeform that you'd 'unlocked' and the gameplay would be different for each one. You'd solve environmental puzzles by incarnating as many different lifeforms.
The game wouldn't focus on difficulty like Raider, but ambience and the thrill of exploration. The game would be low on text or explicit GUI features, to hopefully give the sensation of playing as a mindless animal.
I intend to create a simplified version of this with limited forms and levels, which I'll release, and if it's popular, I could do a more in-depth sequel.

Hmm... Would this be more like your other RPG games like MARDEK where the layout is a 2D, 3rd Person view, or more like Spore where the layout is a 3D, 1st Person view. I played Spore and it was MASSIVE, as in the world was (as far as you could be bothered to go to) endless.

Would the game concept of the 'going to physical world to reincarnate' like you go in as a spirit, and 'attack' a creature to get your soul in it (gosh, we are now Annunaki) and then carry on, or be more of a rebirth from 2 other parents?

Ahh! I found the link for the idea for the 'reentering the physical world' thing. Here is the [LINK] .

When you start, you are a spirit thing and then you enter a machine and control it. When the machine is about to die, you just become that spirit again and enter another machine. It's rather simple, but it works. The only problem is that it is a horizontal 2D shooter. So I don't really think that it would work for this game.

I'm so EXCITED for this, Wolfie! Maybe more excited for Beast Signer, but I LOVE the concept of this! And i'm really glad we don't have to pay anything for this. Too bad it joined the (sadly) extremely long list of "Abandoned" games with no spot on the List at the bottom.
Also, a suggestion: Maybe you could get a Flash animator to make trailers for your games and stuff and post them on YouTube or something to increase your popularity?

I have to say I'm really excited for this one. I mean I'm excited for Mardek 4 this games. Both at the rate of your current games will be a long time before either come out and I would much rather see atleast a beta version of this inbetween the miasmon projects your planning on doing.

I was actually thinking of a game like this before I joined this site. ( Which makes me such a fan of Pseudo's work because he makes games so very in-depth, and I'm sure there's a game here for everyone.)

What I really like about this game in particular is that it won't be based on difficulty, but on (quote-on-quote) "ambience and the thrill of exploration."

I always ponder the idea of being in a wild animal's body and learning how It's day-to-day life goes by. I have high expectations for this game, ( and I'll probably not be disappointed by the time it comes out.) I understand that this is going to be finished after Beast Signer, am I not correct? Good, myes, I look foward to it very much!
( And may I add that I'm catching on to the 'lingo' here fairly quickly and I can't help but use it in my own typing.)

I'd say this would be quite a challenge to complete, but simply incredible once/if completed. Would love to see your interpretation of this, though.

I think that the game can be intresting, also I like to explore all the world in search for hidden spots, or simple a interesting particular, so I think this can become one of my favourite games, but since you don't wan't to work on it very soon I can't be sure.
(For ho didn't get why the titleis wrote in that way: It can be read as Beast, but also Be a St., St. means saint. Get it now?)

Yes, the game sounds nice. It would be fun to take care of an animal from their view. Oh, and, I don't think it's read as "Be A Saint". I believe it is read as "Be a Beast".

Well, the point of the game IS to be a Saint, so it makes sense if the title tells this to the players.

I love ~exploring~ games, and the thought of playing inside an animal has bottled me up with exitement! However I have a few questions.
: Will the graphics be your normal pixil, or will you enchance the gameplay?
: Will there be things like heart attack or fleas?
: With moles and other blind creatures, how will you *see* with it?
And, of corse, the much asked question:
Will there be fantisy creatures?

For some reason, when I read about the 'reincarnating' to solve different puzzles, I thought of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Also, how you said "once your time was up" helped too.

This would be surely a great game. Since YOU will be the monster and not the adventurer. But you would fight other monsters or just adventurers? Would you have a party of other monster friends?

Hmm, I don't believe humans will be in the game, but, in their own way, the monsters playable ARE the adventurers.
