While I was reading a book about 1st century Rome, I thought of an idea for a game. Picture an action-adventure game, with RPG elements based around the whole idea of gladiators in the Colosseum. At any time during the game, you have access to 10 or so Gladiators. Each would be unique from the other, having a different weapon set, gender, race, or skill set (think fast and weak vs. slow and strong, or close range vs. long range). The main bulk of the game would consist of 3 different types of events: 1) Battles between gladiators. These could be 1 on 1, 2 on 2, or even more. 2) Battles between gladiators and entire armies of soldiers or other such typical fodder. These events would be akin to most hack and slashers. 3) Battles between gladiators and exotic animals. I'm talking lions, rhinos, tigers, elephants, deer, panthers, bears, dogs, and anything else ferocious. All of these events would be available online, so friends could compete with or against each other. I suppose there would also be a shop, where you could spend prize money won in events on glorious/sexy outfits, new weapons, and more. How cool would it be to take on a couple of angry elephants with 3 friends? Of course, the game would be rated M, so none of the gore infamously associated with the Colosseum would be left out. I know this isn't the most spectacular idea, but I think it could be somewhat mindless fun. After all, this period in time hasn't really been touched upon by many games, so the setting would be fresh and interesting. Anyways, what do you guys think?
