had a cursed game idea
anyway my idea was
a rock band clone but the drummer's timing windows are really, really lenient, and the tempo changes to match the drummer
so you're not trying to keep an actual beat, you're trying to lock in with the drummer, who should in theory be keeping an actual beat but who knows
that's my idea for a game no one would want to play
@absturztaube i think the main problem is that it's just a rhythm game but worse
@absturztaube because everyone else's performance is tied to how good of a drummer you have. if your drummer sucks, your guitarist can't make up for them
it's kind of how it works for real bands but that doesn't make it fun in a videogame
@monorail too real???
Oh sounds like fun team-building stuff
@katrani seems less like team-building and more like "yelling at your drummer simulator 2012"
But you gotta trust the drummer to keep a beat you can folllow and they gotta trust you to keep up!!
@katrani that's also true of regular rock band, it's just that one player failing doesn't directly hurt the others
Why do you not want me to like your idea lol
@katrani because it sucks! i thought of it and went "lmao that's TERRIBLE"
