I wouldn't make any game. I can't even figure out how to get the cursor to display relative to the entire screen and not the window. I can't even make a proper game loop. I use swing shit.
I hope someone makes your fish game, OP.
the greatest fish game was already made.
Spore's first lifeform stage but with fishes
That fish breeding game where you mixed breed to achieve different species of fishes and sell them as deluxe fishes while balancing the maintenance costs
It would be about exploration and the gameplay would be the simple "eat something smaller than you to grow slightly bigger".
The game starts out at fairly shallow water close to a beach where you can see the bottom with coral reefs etc and the surface in the same frame. But you gotta go further from the beach to find bigger fish to eat so you can grow, and deeper and deeper once you get big enough and the game suddenly turns into terrifying deep sea survival horror.
Best not to fuck with that fish cause it looks like something out of a horror movie.
You know that fishing part of Animalito Cruzando? (What us Spanish call Animal Crossing)
So yeah just that part. With the museum with the fishes there if you donate them.
Also why is Firefox's spell checker so bad? (Spanish guy here)
Was thinking of this as well, but why not explore the fact that some fish travel in schools and stuff, with Pikmin-esque controls.
Disorient enemies by swimming wildly and navigate through currents and stuff.
Survival against other fish
Survival against weather
Survival against humans
You have to eat, rest, breed
special unlocked modes include
Extra unlocked stages include
Mafia / Yakuza / Secret agent / VIP person tank where you see cool, funny, sexy, and or wild action events go down every once in a while, sometimes your tank gets shot, knocked over, or humped against.
that was a sea horse game, my bad
I actually had an idea about a sardine that gets lost from its school and has to swim through the ocean to get back, avoiding spooky sea creatures along the way. The final area has it avoiding the most dangerous creature of all,
Mother nature is a fucked up bitch
when your fish dies without offspring you can go to their and see horrid demonic and twisted fish forms, to try to reclaim your second chance, its randomly extremely hard or easy.
If the ice caps melt the sea will be our cage, and these things the wardens.
The future gets bleaker everyday desu.
