Next Generation: Character Control

posted by Ataaka on - last edited - Viewed by 292 users
How exciting would it be to actually control any character you feel necessary?

Yes...I know the programming would almost seem infinite. But, wow!.. would't it be nice to control Kenny or even Clem?

Also, just for giggles and grins, lets have a 'solo mode' where any character might be able to break away from a group and establish contact with other groups more suitable to the players alter-ego.

TWD is a very nice break from MMO's, and we really don't need that flavor here. I just wanted to dream a little on waking up into my own circumstances with the old school MUD choices:

You find yourself in a dark basement. Someone bolted the door from the outside. You are thirsty and need food too. There are strange noises coming from beyond a small window behind you.

*Go left down the alley and search the grocery store.
*Find out where the strange noise is coming from.
*Hide in the basement

  • I think being able to control multiple characters in a story is plain ridiculous.....if you want free roam then I'm sure someone can up with that game. This game is centered around Lee and Clem, like it or not.

    If not you can always play Left 4 Dead or Dead Island, problem solved...

    I don't believe he is suggesting it should be that way, just a "what if" and I have to agree, if the possibilities were open and endless, it would be fantastic as a story...but that's a pipe dream.

    It's been done. They made some of the puzzles throughout the game require 2 characters, and sometimes even 3 characters to complete.
  • Heavy rain did that awesome game
  • Not all characters. That's just boring.
  • ..Yeah, the programming would prrrroooobably be infinite.
  • i think if ttg make season 2 co-op between two people it's do-able.

    of course it'll be 3 months or more between episodes, but it will be pretty sweet

    to have someone else actually helping or hindering you along the way.

    how many would vote for ' ben like buddy ' i wonder ;)
