…and I’ve got it! I kept thinking of all kinds of weird gameplay fusions I could perhaps pull off, as that approach sounded like the most fun, but just now I started to get back to the word “hybrid” itself and all of a sudden X-Files sprung to my mind and that was it.
I’ll try making a game where you take control over aliens visiting Earth, harvesting DNA, perfecting an alien-human hybrid and trying to subvert the world’s governments. Basically a reverse X-Com game. I think I won’t bother with turn based missions. Just the “globe” portion of the game will do.
The gameplay will be quite basic, though I think I can make up for that with outlandish story and presentation. I’ve already got all kinds of sick ideas swimming in my mind.
This is gonna be fun!
