I've been messing around with this idea for a while now. It's basically an Old Man and the Sea in space.
An underwater harpoon game based on matching your speed with the momentum of bigger and bigger fish- but in space.
I'm now researching a sort of 60's scifi style for this. Think lost in space meets life aquatic in space.
I've also been messing around with some terrain creation code, so it could look very pretty(with someone on board for art
Here's a basic prototype I've been kicking around that I'll use a lot stuff from.http://pebblebuilds.weebly.com/
Hoping to get someone for sound on board, i don't want to steal music.
Can't wait to start, the 20th - 27th is a perfect week for me too.
I'll be using Unity4, GIMP, and Blender.
