An Inspiration to Create a PC Game Plot
I am a ‘bad boy’. No I was born a bad boy – at least that most of my folks know me for. I was a bully since I was a kid in elementary and I almost got away with all the ‘bad things’ that I did to other kids. I did it all for fun. You may call me a sadist, but it is true that I developed pleasure from seeing other kids suffer. Nevertheless, you can bet that all that shit had to come to a stop at last.
But not that early, I continued this behavior even when I went to high school and finally to college. While in college, the behavior had generated to something else. Here, instead of kicking the asses of other boys, I derived pleasure from doing stupid tricks which eventually embarrassed others especially freshmen.
And while in my third year in college, I got an unexpected contest. It came from a college staff who knew about my shitty way of getting me feel a ‘hero’.
A Good Game is all in the Plot
It all happened during an inter-college’s event whereby I happened to pour some juice ‘accidentally’ on the pants of a colleague just because the colleague happened to be in the company of some girl whom I felt was too good for the boy. I don’t know how this incident spread so fast but it happened to reach a college’s official who gave me a chance to redeem myself by doing something which would really prove that I warranted to be the bad boy of the school – else I had to face disciplinary action. (There was this culture that there must be a bad boy known by all-except the authorities).
I never would have liked to be sent away from school for my behavior so I accepted the challenge. After giving it, much thought, I decided to create a story line about a bad-ass villain. It is this story that I intended to give to a third year colleague who was doing Computer Engineering to develop a video game.
As all good stories are, there are some elements which must be presented – the most notable is the heroic character. My hero was supposed to be a real bad-ass just like was.
In Gaming, A Hero is About Conflict and Victory
The whole project took me almost three weeks- a week short of what I had promised the college staff to have the project ready.
During this time of brainstorming and developing a plot about a naughty kid from a poor family who decided to join a criminal gang to make ends meet because he couldn’t access good education because of lack of school fees. The boy had several of his gang members caught or killed by cops but he always got away with it even when apprehended by authorities because of the lack of enough evidence.
The after two years in a life of crime, he meets with the sheriff’s daughter and falls in love with her not knowing that she is the sheriff’s daughter. After a couple of months knowing who the girls is, he is astonished because he knows pretty well that the sheriff won’t approve the marriage because of his criminal record which the sheriff know about.
