Ok I will admit that I am a prude but I think that if we haven’t already we should establish a line of what we can put into this game without being graphic. Personally I think the game should max out with a rating of T. I will include more M rated concepts below I think we should avoid.
Intense Blood and Gore. I personally think that a hard T level of blood should be enough for what Thrive is going too do. I don’t know much about game development but in order to add in massive blood splash and gore that would stain the world the devs have to do more work than it would be worth.
Sex Scenes. I don’t know if everyone agrees with me but adding sex scenes into this game would probably be uncomfortable. I personally would be uncomfortable with clicking a button that starts a Walking with Dinosaurs style sex scene and I know what your saying I’ve gone too far but avoiding this might actually be the best choice. You could make a version similar too spore’s mating mechanic but it has more innuendo and instead of the creature laying an egg it goes up to the mate and the camera cuts out before they begin. This could possibly be easier to animate because the game would have too figure out how the creatures would do it before running the animation.
Private Parts. I don’t think I have to point out it would be uncomfortable to see your creature’s parts blowing in the wind as it walks around. I know some of you are saying this makes it less realistic but Walking with Dinosaurs, Beasts, and Monsters never included the private parts and they where all hyper realistic. I think this is an aspect I shouldn’t have to argue about.
What do you guys think. Is there anything I didn’t cover you think we should avoid. This is relevant to every stage but I think it is most relevant to this. Feel free to start similar topics about other stages.
