Today I was walking through Bluewater, which for someone from the country is an unnecessarily large shopping centre, which got me thinking about building a simulation.
The idea is a shopping arcade, or mall if you prefer, infinite in size and procedurally generated by random or manual seed. In theory it doesn’t matter whether it’s a shopping arcade, town centre, airport, etc. Its an infinite area that’s procedurally generated which I can build a game on top.
Shopping arcades are usually full of zombies in games, so maybe I can do something different. Perhaps a stealth game where you have to avoid the authorities and steal items to gain points. Or maybe a horror survival game where the arcade is full of monsters.
Who knows, something fun though.
