New Game Idea

It's my Battle Royale game for introverts. Players parachute onto an island then scramble to find a nice quiet place to handout with a small group of close friends and chat.

Rad idea, do you see it working as a classic graphic adventure or with a The Cave-y approach?
Or something totally different?

How about a Battle Royale game that has historic royal persons fighting for a piece of land?

I've played this game! It's called Improbable Island.

What about finding a nice quiet place where to be alone with nobody around? THAT would be for real introverts :P

The play circle could start really small, so you have to know the map really well to find solitude, then the circle starts to grow until encountering other players (outside of your small group) is nigh impossible... Last person to find a quiet comfortable place is the 'loser' (if we must be so crass as to codify such arbitrariness)

"... close friends and chat"
And relax. The goal of the game is: to relax. I like this idea.

I think it could work, if you can also commit suicide in several fanciful ways..

Would the environment be hostile?

Sounds like a virtual regulars' table for Monkey Island fans.
I'm afraid it would be too much a niche, though. Nonetheless, I think that your next game ought to take place on an island indeed - even if it's not a pirate game.

Haha.  That's about my speed of a game these days.  And I don't even have time to coordinate it with my friends, so I hope it's more of an asynchronous grog drinking thing.

I'd support it on Kickstarter. Me and my dog Pocho would play it, we like the idea. I'd love climatic factor on it, think about it, it would add much more introvertity and charm to the game.

It may be a joke, but I suddenly realized this is my kind of thing nowadays. I play games to stress out, not get stressed. I play games to escape reality. I play games that are quick and easy to enter and exit because of family life. There are few other things in life that offer the depth, yet simplicity to enter and leave, as a conversation with another human. Wow.
