Yarn Game Idea?

Okay, so here me out- this is going to be a mess of ideas :

I had an idea to create a game- based on “sewing” if that makes sense, where people are dolls, everyone has button eyes, you can sew and make things to progress during the game- maybe for “upgrades”?
Magic would also be in the game as well.

I need any ideas that people think of :heart:

I have NO idea what direction I want to go with this- but I’d love to hear other ideas to get the wheels turning.

Here are some pictures of things I have made- and details of how the game would look :

BUTTON AND NEEDLE


NAME IDEA

SEWING TABLE

A friend of mine suggested horror for the game genre- and if you can bounce of of that, I am not opposed to it!

You could probably make a game of sewing clothing like sweaters. But as time goes the tools you use advance and the amount you can make also advances like sort of a Sewing Simulator type of game. So like you start with like some very basic tools and a capacity to make about 5 clothing and then you sell them. Then you go to a store with the money and buy better tools or increase you capacity. with let’s say a basket to a closet. I feel like I might be abit confusing to understand. But I think you’ll get the idea. so yea, Good luck on the project idea you choose to work with! :slightly_smiling_face:

First of all, I just want to say I love the concept so far! As for ideas, you could make it a 2D adventure type game where you need to sew objects to get past certain parts of it. Or you could make it sort of like a tycoon as well, where you sew things to add to your house, but you have to earn the blueprints for them by doing something else.

First, thank you for the suggestion, second of all - that would be so much fun to make, and is definitely top of my list :laughing: As I said above I will update this when I go over all of the possibilities of what I could make. :heart: Thank you so much!

You could make the game kind of like Unravel or yoshis woolly world.

This would be a horror game to me as I hate button eyes.

Yeah it sounds like a horror game to me. The best inspirations you could take from this is Coraline & little nightmares. I don’t know why little nightmares came to mind but a game with that style would fit pretty nicely and coraline… you know if you watched it.

Mhm! I completely agree which is why I am not opposed to the idea. Coraline scared me so much as a kid haha. Thank you for the suggestion. :pray:t2:

this sounds like a really fun concept. Maybe a game like piggy or something where you could use like a sewing needle for a sword and you were a yarn ball with a yarn body?

Everyone says horror, but take a look at Little Big Planet or Yoshi’s Woolly World. Those games are based on the idea of yarn characters and they’re super cute / casual.

Ofc Roblox doesn’t have mesh deformation so you may not be able to achieve that cute squishiness those games have easily – probably it would require a lot of animation.

I agree- that is why I am still taking ideas. The animation part would be something for me to work on, but I am hoping it to achieve something like that or completely new. Thank you for the suggestion!

I think this is a unique and great idea. I’m getting the Nintendo vibes and Yoshi’s Wooly World vibes. I think this will attract lots of different age groups and audiences. What platform is your game geared towards and what platform are you prioritizing? Anyways, I think this looks great​:slightly_smiling_face: I can’t wait to see the finalized product that you create out of this unique idea. Well, anyways I’m looking forward to the final upcoming release of this yarn :yarn: game​:slightly_smiling_face: I hope this helped​:slightly_smiling_face:

You helped a lot!! I am trying to attract most audiences, so it’s a fun game for everyone. Kids might be more appealed to the “cartoon” and funny non-living characters like the yarn ball with button eyes :joy: then something fun and interesting for older players.

Forgot to add this as well- mainly computer and in the future mobile would be the next prioritized platform.

Not sure if this could help with some ideas! :teddy_bear:

Npcs are a good idea though-
