>be decent programmer
>have free time
>no ideas

I want to make a browser game in Javascript, mainly as a learning exercise and as something to put on my github account.

But I'm an adult now so I don't have the autistic devotion and "passion" for games that so many shutin neets have.

What kind of game should I make?

Pre-emptive veto on the following games:
>a gf/waifu simulator
>school shoot-em-up
>beta uprising civ game
>>
>>25679987
make a browser moba
>>
>not making a dating sim

I've always wanted to make a physics engine, but I don't think Javascript is really built for that.

I have a few drawings of a game that uses circles and lines, and strange geometric relationships between you and the game.
Just a simple game with simple ambitions, but you play mainly for the weird and ever changing patterns and shapes that evolve as you play. Mainly just something to play whilst tripping

make a rpg about the path to wizardry. You begin your quest to gentleman supremacy with little in terms of magic, but after being rejected many times by women you can harness it. After reaching level 30 you become a wizard and can finally set out to destroy Chad, the evil douchebag who gets all the pussy.

What if we had a feature where you could build up a meter in debates, and when it's full you can summon your waifu to debate with you. (Literally any waifu, we'd go through all the waifu threfs, and add all of them, so you'd only have to choose)

Make a socially conscious, feels-filled, *important* game. Your hero is humorless, naive SJW going through the city to right wrongs. Except everyone else in the city thinks he's delusional and go on about their gritty business. Example,
>Our hero busts up human trafficking ring after watching the documentary "Taken"
>he does Liam Neeson impression in the mirror, then springs into action.
>Gets beat up and robbed by hookers.

All charming bit-cute style graphics and sound of course. The SJW rage will get clickbait mill going which means free marketing for you. I await my free copy and stack of cash.

Can you create a browser-based or android app kind of wifi controlled vibrator system?
Basically if a girl owns a vibe, the vibe can be turned on and off and the strength of vibrations can be controlled via the internets. Instead of with a remote control you physically hold on your hands like in hentai.

There's really no incentive for you to make a game. Just make enterprise software and make ezmonies.

How about a Ouija board game?

It's a single player game, the player is "The Ghost."

You play as a ghost who inhabits a Ouija board. Controlling the cursor, you spell out words.

Initially, you can only spell three letter words, but in later levels, you can do complex sentences and other spirit powers

Level 1 would be some dumb teenagers using the board.

Later level could be messing with a TV psychic during a seance.

The game is all about the NPC's reactions to the player.

You make the choices. Do you want to be scary? Goofy?

Play to find out.

>>25681174
The only one i found in existence is fucking expensive, it's called ohmibod and that doesnt even really do what im looking for. I wont spend more than usd 20 on this, i mean my vibe is only 6 bucks?

I sometimes work on vidya made in js. Making vidya is hard and time consuming, so i recommend doing small projects. Examples include simple card and board games, clones of older games like pacman or breakout, or a barebones MUD.

You will be pulling you hair out. Use requestAnimationFrame(functionName) instead of setTimeout or setInterval.

And making multiplayer games ramps up the difficulty ten fold or more.

Also, Chrome works best.
>>
>>25681044
You can do this with nodejs and either the usb library or a microcontroller via internet. I always had trouble with the usb library so I'm not much help here.
>>
i dropped out of college and have been a professional js programmer for about 4 months now. Link the repo when you start and i'll hop on board.
>>
>>25682034
Oh yeah, you can use setInterval / setTimeout, but they arent used for the general game loop.
>>
>>25681353
Why did you comment if you didn't read the rest? The pitch is for a *parody* of an SJW game.

Undertale isn't the best example of that anyway. Something like, "Waaaah, I can't find water for my village and cross the border because I got raped to death: the GAME."
>>
>>25682034
>>25682144
Thanks for the advice, I would have ended up using setTimeOut(). Reading the MDN article on requestAnimationFrame() now.

node.js is basically a thing that runs Javascript on your computer itself, rather than in a browser.

So instead of manipulating a web page you can manipulate your computer, like mess with files, access the network, set your computer up as a webserver, etc.

You could use any language though.

there is no way anyone who has studied CS can say with a straight face that those languages don't matter
