tfw no Gulyabani game based on the book.
A 'who is the killer?' type of multiplayer game with horror elements.
Set in the 70s inside a mansion with 8-10 players.
One player is chosen as the killer and two other ones as his henchmen. Their goal is to kill the key players every night. Only killers can see who is the key player.
Killers will disguise themselves as 'Gulyabani' and his evil gnome buddies to spook other players.
It is possible to kill every player inside the mansion but it'll raise suspicion and bring the final day closer.
Players can either sleep or roam the mansion at night. Constant roaming will decrease your maximum stamina and will effect things like chance to fall down when running or seeing hallucinations.
Players have the ability to scream when they see one of the killers. This will wake up every sleeping player.
In the final day police will come to visit the mansion and will make a choice with the players on who are the killers.
If the key player is killed then the killers will win no matter what the outcome is
It is possible for players to gang up on killers and remove their mask

The baby thing mentioned
Like four cannibals being able to keep a bunch of human beings under their house that only rise up and fight back once they see the two main characters
These people are all starving, meaning they would be inefficient as food
No more animals despite animals often-times being more resilient than humans
Humans being alive at all if literally everything else is dead
Fruits like apples occasionally get found despite it being explained that literally everything but humans are dead

It doesn't make sense other than as a metaphor for human resilience and mourning.

Book.
The cover art is based on a scene where a group of the Church Knights is going through an old battlefield and trying to find a dead king. One of the guys knows a small amount of necromancy, and is able to call the dead - however, not everything on that field is human. So they find one of the large mounds, and decide it's worth a shot - and it turns out it's a fuckhueg demon that they accidentally bring back from the dead, and have to kill again.

Sparhawk, the main protagonist and the guy depicted on the cover, is using the spear of the royal family of the nation, which is the only weapon they can use to kill it, since it has a magic ring hidden in a space between the shaft and the tip. The spear was originally just a shitty spear that one of his ancestors picked up on the battlefield after his sword broke, and eventually, only that guy (also named Sparhawk; everyone in his line is named Sparhawk) and the King remained. The two switched weapons, so the king used the spear and the ancestral Sparhawk used the king's sword, and every since, the two families became inseparable until just the generation prior.

The books themselves are kind of generic in terms of plot, because the author was a Lit professor who realized that all of the really successful books did sort of the same thing, so he basically wrote a book using "generic fantasy plot" except with a bunch of cool characters. And then he did the same thing a bunch of other times, with the Elenium (and its sequel series, to a somewhat lesser extent) being the best. Not exactly hard reads, but they're fun to read, unlike most fantasy stuff you see nowadays.

Christian Foster

The real gimmick isn't even the fights - though those are great, when they happen - as much as it is the travels. A lot of stories have the characters go from Point A to Point B, as the plot goes along - the Elenium, sort of like LOTR, focuses a huge amount on the journey itself. The difference is that, while Tolkein was an amazing worldbuilder and focused mostly on that, Eddings tends to ignore things like the local countryside, and focuses on things like the characters bantering in camp. Since the story pretty much follows Sparhawk, a huge amount also happens off-screen, only to get told about with embellishment later - and oftentimes with someone else saying something along the likes of "that's not quite how it happened."

That's not to say it's all travel, of course. There's a lot of time spent in the cities as well, where the dangers shift a lot. Yeah, sometimes there's a fight that breaks out or whatever, but it all depends on the point in the story. You still get a few nice exchanges:

group comes up to Fantasy Rome with a priest in Book 3
soldiers working for the current antagonist try to stop them
the not-Percival of the group comes up to the leader and asks him if he's going to stop them from their mission
guy says yes
not-Percival takes out his fuckhueg lochaber axe and decapitates the guy
immediately makes everyone start praying over their "misguided brother"
others in the group patting each other on the back for having "successfully corrupted him" into being as much of a murderhobo as they are

Reading it is sort of like reading something that uses dramatic irony - you as the audience already know about 90% of everything that's going to happen because it's all stuff that's happened in other fantasy stories. What makes it work is that you actually want the main characters to have a happy ending, and you want to see bad things happen to the bad guys. It's kind of the opposite of something like Uncommon Time, where the people who deserve to suffer get out just fine, and the people who did nothing wrong are forced to suffer the most, and it just leaves you with a bad feeling. Perhaps more importantly, that 10% that is a surprise becomes all of the better because of - because the story convinces you that you know everything, it's a lot more of a shock when something comes out of left field.

Admittedly, I might be doing the same thing - the books series is fun, but I hold no illusions over it being great literature. Even my descriptions might be exaggerations as to the quality. But it's a series I read in 5th Grade, read again 8th Grade, and have read every few years since. Probably will do it again soon, after having brought this up.

Mistborn
Some individuals within the setting are born with the power to ingest and 'burn' specific metals for specific effects: Pewter makes you strong, tin enhances vision and hearing, Steel and Iron let you pull and push metals around.
Steelpushing is literally a direct push away from your center of gravity, if it's anchored or weighs more than you do, you are pushed away
They use this in the books constantly to achieve a psuedo-flight with coins and shit
All sorts of neat setting shit surrounding the importance of metals and the like
Notably a female protag who isn't libcuck as fuck

I would love to see a massive range of Discworld sim games. You could take so many approaches to it too.

Ankh-Morpork simulator. Do Vetinari's job and see how long you can juggle all the guilds and keep everything running smoothly when magical and socialogical disasters happen every other week.
Small God simulator. Start with little miracles and build your way up. More believers = more power. Watch out for the other gods!
That kind of thing.

I don't mind the addition of the nosalises or that you kill more people, but a lot of the supernatural shit came short. Khan was a lot more interesting in the book and stuff like the cannibal tribe was cut completely. The Kremlin monster was a complete disappointment too.

The teams that worked on STALKER got fired after each installment if I remember right. The ones that worked on SoC got picked up by Deep Silver to work on a similar game.

The Road Vidya.
Not the dullest shit ever
Oh boy, I can't wait for a true-to-source-material game where I spend hours walking down ruined Roads and have to tell my son that unfortuneately that half a tin of beans he's eating might be all he gets for the next day.

The Road would literally be a terrible vidya because the only way you'd be able to properly make it into a game would be as a walking sim with long portions of the game involving you just walking along a road being depressed. Sure the whole using wooden 'bullets' to make your revolver look like it's fully loaded so you can intimidate people thing might sound like a cool idea, but if you translated the book into a game you'd get to use it maybe once or twice every hour or so and there'd be no other action.

In all honesty, "The Postman" would make a more interesting video game, and that would trigger /pol/ because it'd have Feminists be the good guys.

Wasn't the Myth series loosely inspired by the Black Company? At the very least it's got a high fantasy setting with a massive war going on and the focus on smaller groups of mostly mundane soldiers.

Sebastian Bennett

Starship Troopers. The book, not the movie. Gameplay as the different branches of the military, but with a strong focus on the jumping troop. Power armor done right, fighting truly alien life that's trying to destroy humanity and actually causes serious damage to Earth. A war that's truly brutal, and there are battles that you cannot win, only try to survive. Some tense levels where your army is searching for the bugs and your unit is spread out quite far (but within jumping distance) and the enemy could attack from underground anywhere at anytime, and may even make use of diversions and decoys. You could play different roles in the operations. You'd have to defend pickup points from aliens when it came time to retreat. Spooky underground levels going through dark confusing labyrinths where you know the enemy is near you, watching and could attack anytime from any direction, or every direction. Good flamethrowers and explosives, leaping infantry doing one man bombing runs.

Story would focus on duty and honor, and struggle against the odds. The power of a band of brothers who would die for each other.

Eventually you could be promoted to field commander, still in combat but responsible for coordination of a team with XCOM/Fire Emblem style teammate permadeath. Sending squads with different strengths/gear to handle different threats or aspects of a mission. Or maybe you'd be in charge of just one squad, and still be taking orders from a higher up coordinating the larger scale battles.

Thanks, couldn't remember what they were called.

Anyway yeah you're right, but the bugs had incredible numbers and were willing to use nearly suicidal tactics to gain an advantage. As I recall in the book the war was pretty evenly matched for quite a while, until near the end when humanity figured out a new type of planet wiping weapon that was effective against the bugs, but even then there was a long struggle ahead.

Aliens that after being lightly triggered suffer a gender change (genderfluid Kool Aids). They get easily PTSDed for dumb shit like being alive
Main antagonists: Their social and political [dis]organization revolves about a quality called sfik, which combines face, authority, and ferociousness. Sfik is gained through victory in combat, or possession of something of value, or just the respect of others: followers with strong sfik give more sfik to their leader. A kif that loses sfik is likely to have its followers either defect or kill it. As a result, the kif are prone to change sides at the first sign of weakness. They seem to have no other moral values; they are pirates and cannibals, and are generally deemed troublesome by the other species.A very accurate description of female social behavior IMO

Don't listen to these anons, DUST is great and it effectively turns fallout nv into a survival horror with rpg elements. It was really influenced by the road and a boy and his dog. Though avoiding the absurd amount of tunnelers in the beginning is tedious.

The real disappointment for me was how little it captured how dire and shitty the situation was. Like the tunnels in game felt smaller and less dark than I'd imagined. And I really felt like the dark ones were presented weird.
But I suppose already knowing what they were trying to do didn't help.

TBH, Starship Troopers is a more military/political philosophy book rather then an Action book, a majority of the book takes place in boot/officers camp and flashbacks to Civics class.

That's fine, I don't mind a change of pace. I suppose the only thing that worries me is sounds sort of like it ends on a cliffhanger never to be finished.

how often do books become video games when there aren't movies based on them?

Nicholas Campbell
Nicholas Campbell

The book has a few main sections, but it doesn't leave out most of the main bug assaults, is probably saying how a game developed around the book won't have everything and/or only focus on one part of the book.
As far as the ending goes there isn't any real cliffhanger or spoilers.

the road was a fucking shit book

not often
only one I can think of is the metro series and even then the second game isnt based around the second book but the third game is suppose to be more similar to the third book

the third book annoyed the shit out of me, everyone was so awful and unlikable

Crossed is enjoyable until you get to the current year shit. I love how even edgy comics become feminist propaganda.

It's a great book worth reading, but the ending is sort of disappointing if you're expecting to read until humanity's eventual victory or defeat. But like that other user said, the story isn't really what the book is about.

I completely agree with you. I can't really recall many points in the game that felt truly claustrophobic, and stuff like tunnel madness wasn't a thing at all. They could've done a lot more horror with it.
spoiler
I read the book after I played the game. Was still disappointed by the adaption.
I'll give them credit for nailing the general atmosphere and lifestyle of the people in the metro. They didn't miss the mark completely.

It's really, really not, unless you read it in junior highschool or something. But the main characters are all genuinely decent, knightly people so that can actually be kind of refreshing depending on what else you've been reading lately.

Lucas Morris

oh yeah
I'm convinced that obsidian are going to be allowed to make a disappointing RTWP rpg with this at some point. By now it should be obvious that every writer in their office has read & absorbed it and tries to mimic it's tone.

For that reason I'd prefer that almost any other game developer on the planet made a malazan game instead. Warhammer total war might have used the Malazan setting in an alternate universe & been better for it.

I don't know anything about Crossed and wanted to read it, but what the fuck are you talking about ? I don't want to read this if there is that kind of SJW shit in it.

Caleb Mitchell

From what ive gathered from anons and the occasional LOL threads posting pics of it the one making it has gone full kool aid but the earlier work is just edgy shit without the SJW stuff.

Carson Hill
Carson Hill

I don't know how well Malazan would have worked as a Total War since it's not like there's really all that many factions with significant armies at any given time, plus all the really interesting stuff happens on the interpersonal scale. I think it would probably work great as like an RTS/RPG on the scale of Dawn of War 2, where you rotate through controlling groups of characters from different parts of the story.

Brayden Morris

I believe the world/history was built for a tabletop gaming group the author ran with some other guy, and then several years later he turned the setting into a novel.

Andrew Cox

The plot is based on a GURPS campaign the authors played, the first novel was at first a movie script before being rewritten as an actual book.

Yeah, Myth was inspired by Black Company.
Myth trilogy on GOG never ever ;_;

a third person stealth game then once shit gets real it turns into a action game and you have to bring down big brother

the telescreens could act like security cameras and you have to sneak past them by hugging the wall underneath them

Survival horror sandbox game.
Resident Evil 4 style of game play.
Basically follows the plot of the book but adds a few new things in.
Day to night transitions. >Vampires come out of houses during the night and makes traveling more difficult.
Can use vehicles, but need gas to power them.
Safe houses for night time, but have to maintain repares from vampires doing damage to them.
Can use garlic and UV laps as weapons.

Call me a faggot if you want but I think pic related could work in an almost Bioshock/systemshock-esque fashion. Just make it as dark as Garth was clearly intending it to be instead of babbies first sci-fi fantasy like scholastic made it.

I don't know what the book is about, but if what is saying is true, then it literally already exists and has existed for several years before NMS was even announced. Too bad it's p2p now.

vampires taunt you at night

Accidentally stay out for too long gathering supplies and night comes
Creeping to your safehouse trying not to make a sound
Turn around a corner and accidentally flash vampires with your flashlight
There must be dozens of them
One of them turns around, points at you and gives a frightening yell:
<"HAHA YOUR FAMILY IS DEAD AND YOU'RE A BITCH"
Everyone laughs at you
Run to your safehouse and cry yourself to a game over

I should get around to reading the other books too
Yes. Yes you should. There is some wack-ass powers introduced in the second trilogy, not to mention the banana shit they do with guns + allomancy. Main character has Steelpushing and the ability to make himself lighter or heavier, which scientifically makes bonkers amounts of nonsense - and yet this fact is actually pointed out by an in-universe character who is researching allomancy.

Look, a setting based on the real entire setting would be AMAZING, but it will never happen.

In Ringworld, some humans and aliens explore an ancient alien artifact: a ring-shaped space station that is 1 million miles wide with a radius equal to the distance between Earth and the Sun. It spins to provide gravity and the inner surface is almost entirely habitable. Aside from the Great Ocean and the Other Great Ocean ((surface area of about two Jupiters each), it’s a cornucopia of different terrains; boreal, river, plains, desert, etc. It’s the PERFECT setting for procedural generation and would–statistically–NEVER run out of new things. You could space 1 million people evenly across the ring and let them travel for their entire lives and not one of them would ever meet another. On top of that, the Ringworld was created by those ancient aliens and populated with their offspring, but when their empire fell, the Ringworld was left to the ravages of evolution for hundreds of thousands of years. So in the books (there are four) the crews meet a whole slew of different bipedal humanoid aliens (green giants who’ve become partially photosynthetic, “vampires” who always live under the perpetual shadow of the floating cities, straight up “regular” humans except with no noses, otter-people, etc. All that could be procedural, too.

The series went downhill after the second book, I think. They were page-turners with enough infodump to sate that sci-fi worldbuilding autism and then the next two weren't nearly as good. Known Space in general is a good universe though

Monster Hunter International.

original X-Com clone with building multiple bases
game starts in 1895
as time progress not only do your hunters age and have to retire new weapons and calibers are adopted
at start of the game you can determine if this will follow history, plausable alternate history (the US could adopt lever actions, 276 pederson, 280 British, the AR10, ect.) or just totally random (Battle rifles are invented in 1910 and become the primary infantry weapon within 5 years)
this will effect ammo availability and cost
can take contracts from local governments that give you guaranteed income in exchange for not being able to pick your battles
