Genre: Fighting

game genre with possible significant changes or important points


individual gameplay mechanics and mechanics categorized by system

  • Emphasis on Controls, game Balance and Movement during combat
  • Combat
    • increased distance between opponents, promotes increased movement -> use long range weapons (like guns)
    • combat takes place in a large area, opponents can break off from one another and move to different opponents (locked one-on-one combat mechanics, just like a typical fighting game)
    • customizing movesets/strengths (stats) opens up gameplay possibilities, but putting moveset control into the player’s hands may reduce the finely tuned balance between characters, and increasing random chance
    • Flying while fighting, or maybe falling (like while parachuting) -> this would be very sensational, but unrealistic
