L3 Games Design: Task 2 – Game Concept (Greek Gods)



For my game concept I have decided to use the greek gods and I have chosen Zeus, or his sibling Poseidon. Each of these different Greek Gods have different abilities. Zeus is the god of Sky and Thunder, therefore those will be his special powers during the game. On the other hand, Poseidon is the god of the sea, earthquakes and storms, making them his special powers within the game. Each God will be against each other although they are siblings it doesn’t end well for one of them.

Zeus was the God of the sky in ancient Greek religion, who ruled as king of the gods of Mount Olympus. Zeus is the equivalent to the Roman God of sky Jupiter. Zeus is known and respected as the all-father who was chief of gods. Even the gods who are not his natural children address him as Father, and all the gods rise in his presence and Zeus having his symbols as a thunderbolt, eagle and a bull.

Poseidon was the God of the sea in ancient Greek religion, all seamen worshiped him. His weapon was a trident, with which he could make the earth shake, causing earthquakes, and shatter any object. He was second to Zeus in power amongst the gods. Poseidon was hated by many other gods and combined with his greed he was hated because of his attempts to take over cities that were run by the other gods.

The concept for this game is to achieve greatness and to conquer all. Your character, whether that be Zeus or Poseidon is to make your way through all cities defeating anything that is in your path. Along the way you will come up against obstacles or opponents but the only way to conquer all and become the best is to defeat every opponent you face. Furthermore, when travelling through the cities there will be chances to re-generate your health and to gain power by collecting different things.

Becoming the God of all cities, that is the objective of the game, there are two main character to this game, Zeus, the god of the sky and Poseidon, the god of the sea. After all these years of Poseidon being second to Zeus, Poseidon has finally had enough and wants to be on top and rule the cities, although Poseidon is the brother to Zeus he sees him as one of his enemies now is his quest to because the god of all gods.

The aim of the game is to play as the character zeus and work your way through all cities and defend all towns and cities from the opposition. Within the game you must climb on top of the buildings and reach as far as you can to make sure no enemy has conquered your town.
