Nutmeg and I jammed out the idea for a game the other weekend.
Today, we spent time watching giant squid videos on you tube. We learned about the physiology of the giant squid, and downloaded Unity 3d Free edition. Nutmeg also let me know that we're going to start with a fixed camera for side scrolling action.
Working name for this venture? Neptune: the Kraken. You'll control the Kraken on screen (which, makes you Neptune). You'll use the Kraken to smash boats, collect gold and gems and treasure chests, and you'll be running away from scientists. You'll have to wiggle your way through giant kelp. And like Temple Run or Run Kitty Run (or R-Type), you will keep scrolling.
