I respectfully decline. I've never been one for collaborations and after the whole Pet Project fiasco (for me anyway), I'm very likely to never do a collaboration work again. I'm still pretty sure that people are going to rage at me when I release my (now)separate pet project here in a couple weeks...

But the tournament idea with comedy... I dunno. You might be able to draw me out with that one. I don't really get out into the community that much, so this would be fun and interesting for me. My work schedule is even clearing up soon. Although it would be more effective for me to simply contribute my resources for open use and experience to help build a ladder. Sigh... I'm torn.

I say we follow the MST3K Mantra for that one. All anyone needs to know is that multimple characters from different universes are together and they are about to do stuff together.

How about something like "Big Brother" treating it like a reality TV show, except with less drama and more monkeying around.

If you don't mind, I'll sum up what the game's points are based on general consensus:
  • Humor/Adventure metagame using characters from both released games and current WIPs on LSF
  • All participants will donate 2 of their characters for use in the story
  • All art and writing styles are welcomed, as the game will be very modular
Tentative features are:
  • An original protagonist that is created specifically for this game
  • Lots of branching
  • Festival/Character popularity battle royale(?)
  • Reality TV
I think that's pretty much everything that has been suggested.

Now to add in a suggestion of my own: base the story on the Hero's Journey. It's a universally known story, and yet it has plenty of room to add twists to it. It can be very lighthearted, like an overly exaggerated quest to find something regular and mundane (like traveling throughout the world to find the perfect pair of shoes). As the original protagonist travels, he (or she!) meets the characters from LSF games. This doesn't need much fighting to take place, as it can be like a giant sidequest.
IDK, does that make sense?

But then I suppose we might not be limited to one type of setting depending on how the mini-adventure transitions are written?
If we go with my suggestion, then setting transitions won't look so strange. We can go from under the sea to outer space if we wanted!

Trapped in a TV set with a cat pacing on the remote?

I feel like some kind of Big Brother thing would actually be beautiful ;A; Everyone creates a character each, and it's all just about how they interact with each other and whatever else happens to them all....

I've always feared shows like that, but if it's for this, I go hide in a quiet place and youtube it so no one can hear me scream. 8)
Oh, and it took me a couple minutes to realize you weren't talking about the government...

Here's a nice example of what Big Brother is like (It's in spanish though, and much funnier and bearable than the real show) :

Oi. I think my vote's going to the channel-flipping cat idea. Though one of the channels could have "Big Brother" on it. Or Survivor or something like that.

Not to rain on the parade, but we need to stick with ideas that are workable. I like the TV idea as long as it's no wilder than that.

If we stick to the adventuring idea, then the game could be a TV show following that adventure, and maybe whenever that cat steps on the remote, the scene changes (along with an art and writing shift).
