I was thinking about how I could integrate some innovative gameplay into my Blood 3 project, (www.blood3.50megs.com ... Warning: Popups-a-plenty) when I came up with an interesting idea for a game.
I think a horror game that plays like a classic slasher film could be quite fun. One undying enemy that stalks the player throughout the game, kind of like RE3, but he/she/it'd be the only antagonist. To keep the game from getting boring, perhaps there would be a tactical aspect to it, like talking to locals for information on how to defeat the enemy, using the environment to set up defenses/offenses, having a "trust/fear" system among allies like in The Thing, randomization, etc.
It could work in a number of different genres, survival horror, real-time strategy, even first-person if done right.
Just wanted to get some opinions, ideas, criticisms... I'm focused on Blood 3 right now, but perhaps someone might read this and say "Hmmm..." :P
