View Full Version : HELP! For-Ron Paul(icy) Flash Game (concept)

07-20-2007, 04:46 PM
I've created a concept for a flash game based loosely on the last 62 years of American Foreign Policy.

"Opportunites" arise, presented by "The Director."

If you choose "Go for it," you take an action to promote your interests or stymie your enemies'.

Since our real life politicians always seemed to "Go for it" with the possible exception of during the Cuban Missile Crisis, it will be easy to write the script ;)

You start in 1945-46 and I at least want these events put into the game:

Decaying relations with Russia
Korean War
Saudi Arabia

My grasp of history is not comprehensive so if I have some of the stuff blatently wrong, please help correct it.

At this point I have very little more time I can put into the project and my knowledge of actionscript is not sufficient to generate an actual game either. If you or someone you know is capable of helping out with the programming side of things that would be really cool. Alternatively someone could pay a professional flash game developer to turn it into a finished product.

The game would follow a year-by-year progression in real time although it would pause during messages. The underlying theme would be that if you play it seeking to "go big" you'll likely end up with a large body count and an unfavorable reputation around the world. However since it is a game, it should be fun to play with it and try all kinds of scenarios of stationing armies, navies and air forces in random places around the world to see what would happen.

Also, I want to make it so that choosing the most hawkish options during the Cuban missile crisis causes mutually assured destruction. Also if one chooses not to support the Mujahideen and seek close alliances and military bases in Saudi Arabia, the 9/11 event should be nullified. Also the soviet system should collapse regardless of the style of play adopted although the dates may differ

I'll be happy to hear any and all comments but if you want to tell me I left off a bunch of important countries, I know.

Thanks in advance for whatever help you can supply! I'm really serious that I can't put much more time into it right now.

Send me a private message if you want the FLA file.

Apparently there's a whole wiki devoted to flash game development and it looks like there's a free set of tools available to do development with if someone is motivated and wants to put in some time.
