Some more thought tonight, its going to be like a vertical "racing" game, that you sort of throw your students down these narrow rocky canyons in order to graduate, they hit the walls, break bones, lose limbs, and dodgy ragdoll kicks in as they sky dive to the base, even though its not realy skydiving, i dont give a shit.  Its more like realy poor planning on the schools behalf what and where they are diving into.  You need at least 1 intact bone for the student not to pass out, and hence graduate when you hit the bottom, and the game will also be timered so using the parachute to early is bad.

Now google tells me the human body has 206 bones, so thats the hp stats done, im going to use silhouettes for foreground stuff because i wont finish otherwise, and dodgy vector styled backgrounds in a sort of low res mashup.  Hopefully I can include limbs being snapped off, a bit of silhouetted gore, all the good stuff.

Ive got 3 levels concepted which are different themed "classes", each with a different difficulty setting, whether more or less are done is realy up to time.
Each student in theroy should offer something different gameplay wise, but thats a extra for now, ill stick to getting the core dodgy ragdollTM engine down with some rocks crumbling when you hit walls and shit, after the art will be the easy part. 

I better get programming, was tossing up tgb, but going with mmf2 since ive used it b4, more later.

So apparently im "Sick", this is what im doing, screw it, ive coded it.  For once in my life im not going to turn the art into some pixel perfect polish run, just keep it low colours, simple as hell, resembling a flash game or similar. 

The babies will be screaming at first, but once they hit a few rocks im sure they will shutup a bit haha, side note, babies have more bones than adults, you learn something every day.

Sweet box, I love the baby in the corner with the flight goggles, and how you didn't get rid of the text on the left.

This is amazing  Shocked

It also kind of reminds me of an idea I've been kicking around for a game called Pinbaby, which would basically be classic pinball with a ragdoll baby, but there would also be nasty traps that you have to keep the baby away from.

This thing is all flavours of awesomesauce. I never thought that flinging a baby down a canyon would be so much fun! And it educates people on an important lesson, too: No matter how hilarious it is for a baby to smash into the sides of a canyon, it's bad.

Thanks for the good stuff!

Ok now, anyone have any solid ideas how to expand the difficulty/longevity?  I don't really want to turn this into weaving through almost impossible bends etc, as that might get frustrating, but who knows, feedback DEFINITELY welcomed.  Ive got 3 themed stages, and I sort of wanted to work the features into them so it was less of a afterthought.

Ok so theres the snow level, first thing i thought, was a fucking avalanche would rock, so ill try to add it, this would make it the hardest of the 3 levels, the music for this level is the danger zone.

second is the tropical stage, will be themed to "playing with the boys", again from topgun, hooooopppppefully, if i can pull it off, id like to do sort of vines, maybe rope bridges that you can crash into if you choose the wrong path, I thought volcanoes would be cool also, but I cant think of a really effective way to implement that one.

Last is the stage you saw, desert, which is the easiest difficulty, with very little in the way of obstacles, i was thinking about adding some ragdoll birds that you can sort of plow into, that would be a laugh.  This level will have "mighty wings"playing.

FEEDBACK ME

Ragdoll birds would be awesome. :D

I dunno about anything else. Maybe like...little sets of flags, like you get in skiing or something, which you don't *have* to do but you get extra points for?

Perhaps a small altitude meter on the side that you have to keep track of in order to deploy a parachute towards the end of the level.  Deploying too early would cause your points to tick away to nothing, plus maybe your chute could tear off on obstacles so you'd plummet the rest of the way with no chance of finishing gracefully.  Pulling it too late would result in smacking the ground too hard, but a graceful landing would result in some sort of bonus.

There definitely should not be some kind of alert when to pull your chute, though.  It should be something the player has to keep an eye on himself.

I agree with shinygerbil, too.  Some sort of flags to navigate through, or maybe collectibles would be good.  Like milk bottles or something.
