I’m currently making a FFA “battlegrounds” type game and while I was exploring games for inspiration I went down a rabbit hole and realized almost every battlegrounds game is an exact copy of each other, scripts and everything, so I was wondering did some big game scripts get leaked first or is everyone fully copying each other mechanics? (Hoping this is the right category)
I have also seen something similar with simulator games. With the UI and gameplay loops of many different games being nearly identical.
because ever since The Strongest Battlegrounds came out, people have wanted to copy it to hop on the money train.
I’m not sure. If you want to make a unique battlegrounds game, you should have a unique combat system/mechanic.
If I were to make a battleground game, I’d give every player the ability to fly.
People just try to get as many visits as possible with putting in the least work. Someone probably came up with the original scripts and mechanics and shared them with other people who then copied them.
