Video games. We like em, we develop em. But after a while, you come to expect certain things from certain genres.
An RPG game usually involves a story. A platformer usually has a bunch of jumping. Horror games have scary monsters. Indie games are likely to play on expectations, and be pretty short. But what happens when they do something else?
Imagine an RPG with no story, just a nameless character fighting people. A platformer with little to no jumping challenges. A horror game with nothing to run from, An indie game that plays it straight. These don't just think outside the box, no.
Ooh! Title drop!
Game devs. I'm asking you to make a game that defies the boundries of the genre. Play with peoples expectations. Take a format, and do something completely different with it.
