dreaming about game idea

20 minute nap and i came up with a decent idea for a game.

MMORPG set in the Roaring 20s, with Gangsters, the whole point of it would be to become the biggest mobster.

you would start out a teenager doing petty crime, and with experience grow up. start out using your fists, learning to pick-pocket and swipe wallets, learn to drive, and learn to hold a gun eventually (after buying it).

i dont plan on making it, or even seeing it made (ever), but i thought i'd see what you guys had to say.
Mafia was fun.

One feature of the MMORPG could be to wage gang wars against eachother and fight over cigarr and booze smuggling. Car chases with the goons hanging out the windows shooting with tommy guns.

Damn this sounds like fun!


F@H - Is it in you?

having an economy setup would be quite good... make a heck of a lot of difference to the entire player experience... especially if it was a dynamic economy...
it does seem like GTA, but this would me a MMORPG, also set in the 20s instead of the 80s/90s. You could learn techniques on IceBlocking, or cementing people and dumping them into a river, Organizing Underground Casinos (speak easys), stealing liquor, knocking off banks and the sort..

the only thing i see being a big concern is the typical MMORPGs have ammulets and rings and all that.. what stats would be there

· Vitality - Life (adds life + stamina)

· Cunning - Brain Power (how technical you can organize a robbery/death/pick-pocketing/booby-trapps)

· Mechanical - Mechanical Skill (building car bombs[skill lvl decides blast power/radius], using guns, building secret compartments in cars/breifcases)

· Strength - sorta like Mana, decreases when Running, building bombs[how fast you can build them]-ect, stealing a car, yada yada

wow.. i want this game!

i can picture the interface looking like "the sims", and you can build safe-houses, and get people to build you "clan/mob houses"

when your in your gangs stronghold you can read books(+cunning points), play pool(+cunning points), swim/work out(+str points), work on cars (+str).

bribe the police to chill out when dealing with your gang,

bribe the electric company to have a power-outtage at the police station when you plan on robbing a big-bank,

bribe the hospital to look the other way when one of your gang members come in.
