I think every video game nerd wants to make their own game at some point. I always think about strange little game concepts, but I really don’t have the programming and design skills to make a game, let alone the time. But I did want to make some sort of game concept video.
This idea came from a single question: what if Lara Croft was a real person? She would be really different! She’d be a middle aged, heavy set woman who spent most of her time in a classroom or a lab. She definitely couldn’t run and jump and would be against guns. So I incorporated magic and companion animals to help her with the hard stuff.
Initially I envisioned it as a puzzle platformer, but it could be an action adventure game, too! Let me know what you think of the concept, and if you’ve ever wanted to make a game and what it was about.
