Hello!

I am looking to develop a game in either Unity 4 or XNA Game Studio, and I think I have thought of a rather good idea.

Basically, you can switch lights on and off, and as we all know, moths like light. There are some moths in the play space - you have to guide them over a certain area by flicking lights on and off. If there is one moth and a light is turned on, the moth will fly straight to it. If there are several moths, the moth that is either furthest away from or closest to the light (you will be able to flick between these two options) will fly to it. It will be level-based, and have a kind of grey-scale theme to it.

tl;dr version: You make moths try and get to an objective by turning lights on and off.

Anybody interested?

Hope I got this in the right section :/

Never considered enemies, good idea!

Other ideas:

Make the Moth's "Swarm", or act like a "flock" There are algorithms for this that are relatively simple behaviours for each.

Then the game becomes "get at least X Moths to the goal" or something; and you would lose moths from enemies or hazards, such as candles.

Would be ok time killer, but only if it would be cheap/free. Getting it to Steam would maybe get it even popular.

I doubt that this would see much success outside of the mobile market. So, develop it for Android, iOS or both, if you're feeling like making it successful. It might include learning either Java or Objective C though, although I don't know as I don't do mobile development.
AND and OR should be renamed BOTH and EITHER.

Sounds pretty fun. I would play it if it was free or if it turned out to be  really good maybe $5 or something.

I would play it if it was a flash game and i happened to find it somehow.

But i wouldnt bother downloading it, paying for it and i doubt anyone is going to even tell me about it...
