Game Ideas: The Lost Room

Post by Twilighte » Sun Apr 29, 2007 12:52 am

Just watched the only 6 episodes of "Lost Room". Very cool series and would make a fantastic Oric game.
The story surrounds a key for a motel room that doesn't exist. However the key can be used in any door to access the room. From the inside the door will take you to any door in the world. Since 1961 Objects within the room have gradually spread accross America. Each object has a different effect. Objects are things like the comb (freezes time), the bus ticket (takes you to route 69 in Gallup, new mexico), etc. Their are around 100 objects. Objects may be combined to give even more weird results, like the watch and the knife give the person telepathy, etc.
In an Oric game scenario i'd envisage the new Isometric Engine being used, with settings in the room, and in the various scenes cut from the episodes.

Never heard of, I guess you refer to that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lost_Room.

Sounds like an intriguing idea, but sure can do an interesting game, would probably need lot's of text based/dialogs explanations to explain what happens when using an object, where you are, what you can do, etc...

Perhaps a complet full page inventory page to manipulate and combine objects ?

There seems to be a lot of this going on here. Does anyone know WHY these bot's exist? I mean...what's the point?

One simple game that made me think a little bit to Dr Genius Manor and your project is "Dr.Stanley's House 1" that can be find on android platform. An Oric port could be rather interesting.
Try it

Thanks to that bot, I learned that beloved Twilighte is also fan of Lost room ..

I also like that mini-series so much.

It was named after the big "Lost" series The original name was planned to be "The Motel Man" but they changed it to "Lost room" just to call attention of fan of "Lost" even there was no relaiton between those series.

I was also interested in Lost room just because of "Lost" . But I liked Lost room also so much later.

Even it was just a series of 3 episodes (or divided into 6 episodes with each long episode is divided into two ) it could be prolonged for years as the materials and the idea is so rich to cover many seasons..

As jonathan described, It was related with a "haunted" motel room where you can travel to and from that room to any place with a door having a key. The objects related to that room was scattered to the world and gives super talents to their owners.

Maybe we can work on it to create an Oric game as Twilighte described..
