>>14878>psychonaught where the effects are different drugs (as long as it's not made by a 13 year old)
Its funny because I have definitely thought of this. I mention coding only because I am also really inspired by LSD Dream Emulator, So I really like the idea of being in a 3d world. That game has many downsides though and I dont like it as much as Yume Nikki. Besides the 1St person perspective I really like the randomness of the rooms.
So you could do something like maps have slightly different appearances based off the effects you have used recently (which could play into the psychonaut, schizophrenic, daydrreamer angle. Wouldnt be hard for me either). Things like draw distance, color of lights, color of fog, number of sprites, and even textures could change. Among many other things.
I would introduce a lot more dead space though and looping levels, thats all standard.
This is all just theory rn though. Future planning I guess. I actually really like the "randomness", so long as its not "Zomg" random or "you have a 1 on 10 billion chance of this happening" random. I think its OK in moderation but I want to primarily focus on something that provides a unique experience everytime it is interacted with, while still maintaining a cohesive feeling.
