NOTE: This just a fun thought exercise. Nothing actually serious. (Though it would be fun if it was...)
I've had an idea kicking around about what a TAPAS (or general webcomic) fighting game would look like. So why don't have a think tank to kick around ideas of how it could play, who would be in it, what character interactions would be in there, etc. So without fourth ado....
Gameplay: I'd think it'd be cool to have it play kind of like Marvel vs Capcom mixed with JoJo: All Starr Battle's emphasis on character interaction. Both players select two characters for a team plus a special assist character (Namely characters from the webcomics that wouldn't be playable characters) for the match. Gameplay wise, I'd think it'd play like a cross between a more traditional fighting game and the simplified button input of Super Smash Bros.
As for the special mechanics, I was thinking that each character would have a general shared control scheme with each character having a special ability unique to them (compare Injustice or BlazBlue). As for the super moves (Maybe call them Break Attacks?), I was thinking that each character would have three Super Moves: A basic Level 1 Break Attack, a more powerful and climatic Break Attack, and possible a Super Mode of sorts. I was also thinking that certain pairings of characters could unlock special "Cross Break" attacks in which the tag team preform a special team attack together. (The ones that don't have a unique Cross Break would just preform their Super Break Attacks after each other with special dialogue proceeding it.)
Characters (At least some of mine):
Sparky and Charlie: Masked Puppers (EGT)
Gameplay: They'd be a bit of a basic melee rushdown character of sort, namely focusing on getting close to the opponent and wearing them down with a constant stream of attacks with little to no ranged options. They'd also be quick and fast, but have somewhat below-average defense.
Gimmick: You'd namely play as Sparky, but your special ability would allow you to call in Charlie to attack from different angles, usually by using his Yo-Yo to provide ranged melee or restraining opponents.
Super Mode: Sparky summons Charlie for a bit to copy the exact same moves as he does with a slight delay (think Zero's Twin Dream attack from MvC) allowing double damage and easier juggling opportunities. (That, or he could use the Axel Stopwatch to slowdown time for a few seconds.)
Level 1: Sparky and Charlie both show up to preform a Double Pupper Punch, followed by a Double Pupper Chop, and ending with a Double Pupper Dive Kick Finisher attack.
Super Break Attack: Sparky and Charlie summon the rest of the Masked Puppers as they all preform the "All Pupper Kick". Bombarding the opponent with a meteor storm of dive kicks.
Voice Actor: Me (Or Greg Eagles)
Gameplay: A more all-around fighter with a mix of projectiles and melee attacks, though with a focus on melee. Specializes in quick, powerful sword attacks with some delay between them.
Gimmick: Flare can summon the other Dragoons (Takeru, Bryce, Huky, Selena, and Zephyr) to preform special attacks to asset. (E.I. Summoning Bryce to drill out of the ground to surprise the opponent or having Zephyr summon a tornado to launch them.) Each party member would have a slight cool down between attacks to prevent spamming.
Super Mode: Burst Mode/Berserk Mode (Or maybe he could summon one of his evolved armors)
Flare super charges his armor, increasing the speed and power and imbuing every hit with fire damage. However, he can very rarely enter berserk form, which causes him to lose access to his more technical moves and summoning ability. It doubles the damage both given to him and dealt out by him, making it very high-risk, high-reward.
Level 1: Flare supercharges and preforms the Dragon Drop on his opponent, coating himself in a dragon shaped aura of flames and ramming at high speeds. He can also augment the attack by summoning a teammate to preform an attack alongside him. (E.I. Having Zephyr enhance the final strike by creating a fire tornado afterwards.)
Super Break Attack: Flare summons all of his teammates as they all attack in rapid succession, endings with a powerful team blast attack.
Voice Actor: Billy Kametz (or Matthew Mercer)
I have ideas for Yvonne, Takeru Grey, and Alpha Alpaca, but I'm still working out their movesets.
Possible Game Name: TAPAS Cross Battles?
What do you guys think? Do you have any ideas? Can't wait to hear them! HAVE FUN!
