I'm not particularly a gamey person, but I do play a lot of Civilization on Mac. For anyone who doesn't know, basically you become an historically famous leader of an historically famous empire. You start with one settler and one warrior all alone on a tiny corner of the world. You have to explore the rest of the world, discover technologies, destroy barbarians, interact with other empires and city states (this includes trading, making friends, spying on and going to war with the other leaders) The ultimate goal is to lead your empire "to victory" And one day, suddenly, my stupid brain goes; "This would make a really good movie" (I'm a screenwriter) And the ideas been niggling away at me ever since. Picture this;Alice wakes up with no memories on the shores of a forest lake. She quickly discovers that there are several hundred people in the forest surrounding her, all of them resting as though they were asleep, but Alice can't seem to wake any of them. The first four to regain consciousness claim to have no memories either, but it comes evident that each one has been highly educated in one of four ways: Militarily, Economically, Scientifically, (can't think of a word for it) Foreign Relations (yes, I know it sounds cheesy). Over the next few days as people begin to wake and set up basic shelters to establish survival during the first, brutal months, Alice takes over as the leader, slowly an unknowingly building herself an empire. Finally, unable to face away from the truth any longer, Alice assumes full responsibility of the people she holds under protection as their queen. But their not alone on the forest lake, she is sharing this new world with three other fledgling empires and each of them poses a different threat to her fragile nation. Worse yet, it seems the only way to lead her people out of the dark and into a new era is for Alice to remember the past which seems to have been erased from her mind. *** Rough, to say the least, but you get the idea. Opinions? What does everyone else think? I know it's strange but I think it's cool and I'd love to see it on screen (someday), but I'd like some second thoughts. -Katie P.S. Fun question. Which computer or video game would you most like to turn into a script/novel?
