Writing Update #3: Let's brainstorm Locations together!

Recommended Posts

I got something rather strange and awesome, I think.

Last summer I visited poland, and was in my grandfathers hometown. a little nice village near the beach. There was an amusement park that went bankrupt. They sold all their stuff to the towns people for penny or something. So now this small and rather humble village is full of pirateships, dinosaurs and weird loud stuff. Its the strangest thing. It simply does not fit together. The amusement park is abandoned and desolate. and while this village should be the funniest place in the world, its somehow rather sad.

Its like the financial opportunity forced all this oh so happy stuff on them.

just my two cents

Here's another idea. Not really a location, but more like a universe "rule" - but a world where the timeline is a circle. So, if one lives long enough, they can see multiple outcomes from the same events. If that makes any sense.

That's sounds like a pretty amazing place. If they don't use this idea I might pilfer it.

Ventriloquist Dummy Factory.

Inside a vacuum tube system (similar to what they have at banks).

Through a battlefield where time has stopped at the height of the battle.

Inside a rain drop as it falls and drips through a tree and eventually lands on the ground.

A zoo.

A circus.

Tesla's Lab.

Da Vinci's Lab.

Wow, what a lot of great ideas. Kudos to the backers. Crowd sourcing at it's best. Ice level?

Have you ever seen the 'Backwards' episode of Red Dwarf? You know, where they are in a world with time going backwards. Death is celebrated, birth morned and i won't mention going to the bathroom. I think that'd be a brilliant scene. Some guy runs up shouting and you don't know what you've done cos you've not done it yet. Pretty hard to put into a game halfway through maybe.

this sentence made me think of the dream scene in Twin Peaks... which would be a pretty nice, but scary level...
