With the new advanced logic systems and "top-down" veiw, I will make a gerbil interaction game where you are playing as a gerbil from an overhead veiw and interact with objects and creatures to complete quests, escape the gerbilcage/labratory/the bowels of a vaccum cleaner.
interacting with other gerbils will affect your "freindship meter" with that gerbil, for example: stealing food=3>: (s, attacking another gerbil=5>: (s, giving another gerbil a yummy nut=3: )s and "greeting" (you need to have gerbils to know what it looks like) another gerbil=1: )

different gerbils will have different abilitys and personalitys.
heres some of the personalitys I've come up with: friendly, mean, rival, nervous and curious.
these are some of the abilitys I've come up with: digging, greeting, grabbing, advanced control of interactive objects, fighting, running, speed burst/power slam, stealth, eating and chewing (I have frequently described gerbils as chainsaws with four legs and a tail!)

there could be cyborg gerbils too, with special abilitys like laser-eye vision, X-ray vision, rocket boost and grappling hook (for grabing objects in horrible gas or grabbing and smashing enemys into stuff!)
:kz: <-- are you the gerbil known as stinky the nut theif? :( <-- uh, yes :kz: <-- EXTERMINATE, EXTERMINATE!!!

please leave suggestions for more stuff I could add (like new abilitys),
I will give credit to anyone who submits an idea that I put into the real thing :idea:

Sounds nice!
But... did you just call RPG's... tedious?:(
Let's see how Rock reacts to that.

I don't know if this will be possible in number 2 but if you could "recruit" gerbils to follow you or do whatever would be cool.

I forgot about the add a gerbil to your "posse" part! silly me :rolleyes:

once you have befriended a gerbil to 10: )s, it will be join your "posse".
posse members will help you befriend other gerbils (even entire groups at a time by befriending their leader), defend from attackers, attack enemys and help gather food (or objects).

I will make it so you can make commands to your posse through the direct control seat: (directional buttons) up=befriend, left=follow/retreat, right=gather and down=attack/defend.
the leaders of other groups will have a speicial indicator over them showing you who to atack first/befriend.
