A Christmas Beat-Em-Up
I am unseriously looking for partners to help create my A Christmas Carol meets Dark Souls beat-em-up. It’s pretty simple:
Jacob Marley’s ghost shows up and gives Scrooge his challenge. Jacob then stands aside, but remains to sell potions and items throughout the night.
As the three ghosts appear, Scrooge fights his way through each set of memories, gaining precious stats along the way. At the end of each memory, must beat the spirit who presides over that stage—past, present, and future. (In the simplest version, he just fights the three spirits, ignoring the memories.)
The final boss is Tiny Tim, who can summon such minions as Bob Cratchit and Jesus.
There’s a secret level boss after you successfully beat Tim: Goose Boy. If you defeat him, you get his Christmas goose.
Or maybe I’ll just use this in a story, making games is a pain in the ass.
