This seemed like the best place to post this; art applies to video games.
So I have always wanted Code Lyoko to have an awesome game based on it and have recently become competent enough in related fields to actually do something about it.
My proposal is this: an open world based game heavily influenced by Persona allowing you to transition between Lyoko and the real world while playing as one of the main characters. You would go through school life in a fashion similar to the Persona games (abbreviated view of each day, occasional interruption for relevant dialogue during the day or Lyoko/XANA-related events). The game would cover the entire original series with a bunch of extra content thrown in.
Each day would basically work as the recent Persona games do - wake up, school, free time afterwards that you can use for multiple things - social interaction, exploration, training in Lyoko, etc. This would probably not include things such as studying, as I don't really feel like managing your time like that would be fun in a Lyoko game. You could suffer from sleep deprivation with excessive training in Lyoko, however.
The gameplay would be a unique blend of acrobatic platforming and combat, allowing a fluid combat system and freeform movement with ease of control. The physics would be exaggerated in Lyoko, but the same general system would apply to real-world gameplay as well.
I would attempt to add a cel-shading-type filter to the graphics in real world mode; no promises there.
How to manage a time sort of system is up for debate - allow infinite free time but only one activity per time period, maybe?
You would be able to take quests to earn money/items/experience/etc. I don't like a complete level-based system, but using experience towards new abilities and upgrading old ones is my plan.
You all would hopefully submit quest/event ideas (we would have more XANA encounters than just what happens in the show) and resources for use within this game.
So, what do you think? Would you be interested/would there be enough fan participation to allow me to make this a reality? I can't do it on my own, so if no one will contribute, I won't be able to do anything, but this could be an amazing summer project for me.
