I am very new to Blinks, I only discovered them yesterday when my wife told me she had found what she wants for Christmas. Since seeing them my mind has been abuzz and I have come up with a quick game idea. I have zero programming experience so I don’t know how hard this will be to pull off.
I am totally new to the community so I’m not sure if this is a normal kind of post, but I guess I am looking for 3 things:
- Has someone already made a game along this idea?
- Does this seem like a game others would be interested in?
- Can someone with programming experience give me an idea how difficult this game would be for a total novice to make?
So, onto the general game idea!
It is a push your luck style game themed around mining and exploring a cave. The cluster of blinks represents a section of cave wall. All blinks start blank and one is randomly a hazard while the others contain gems. You click a blink to reveal what it contains. After revealing each blink you have the option to bank points and reset wall or continue. As you continue the likelihood of high point gems increases (first choice will only reveal low level gems, but as you go one the chance of high value gems is greater) and the chance of picking the hazard increases (simply going from a 1 in 8 chance of being picked to a 1 in 7 chance and so on).
I hope that all makes sense. I look forward to any questions and responses!
