A possible 'People's History Game'

Recommended Posts

For those of you live in Canada and watched the series 'Canada a peoples history' on CBC, do you think it would be interesting to have a game of this documentary.

Well if yes, here is my idea. There would be four major Campaigns : The Natives' Campaign, The French Campaign, The English Campaign and in the end the Revolutionary Forces' Campaign.

The gameplay would not be like that of normal RTS. You would have to train your normal villager into a fighter or a peasant. to get more villagers you  would have to give them families and in time the population would grow. The nicer and richer the city/village the better the growth rate. The different civilizations ( four here ) would have different types of formations and different weapons. Although they could have some common ones. Also the battle should be more realistic and would have the concept of 'Morale'. There would be also trade otions and diplomatic options. Perhaps a few ghosts for fun  ;D and some other cmmon RTS features.

Why ghosts?  And why link it with the documentary?

The ghost was a joke and the game is to be made based on the documentary ( just supposing ).

Surprised they havn't made a game based soley on the Canadian history.

But then it might not sell well.

Although colonization is a good game :)

Wish they would release an up to date version. :(

Whoever has seen the documentary would really love this game, but as all game industries are u.s biased they would not make a game about Canadian history.

But our history would make the greatest of games as there were a lof ups and downs in it. The Govt. subsidize it so that everyone could play it ( hey the subsidized stupid cartoon named 'Arthur', not that stupid though ).

doh! There's a similar game already called American Conquest. It was made by the same developer as the cosscaks - GSC Game World. Anyway it's about colonisation. You can choose to fight for the natives, or for the conquistadors. The game roxx, and it's 100% historical!  ;) www.americanconquest.com The game features 12 nations: USA, England, France, Spain, Aztecks, Mayans, Delavars, Sui, Ink Empire...and more.

It's simple - the intro movie tells you the shoirt piece of tryue history and in the end it says "Do you want to change the history?" and the an indian jumps out on a house and takes down a spanish musketeer with a tamahawk  ;)

Wow it is a great game.

But we still need a game that is historically accurate.

Historicaly accurate...well...there're alot of games actually Aoe2, Total War series, the games I mentioned before - they all have history accurate campaigns. And in Cossacks you can even play historical battles in multiplayer. And they are historicaly accurate. Simply, the army that historicaly lost the batttle has goals like "Hold that point for 5 min" etc...

No I mean with these stories ( The North and South American hostories ).

Well there was a campaign of Aztec empire in AOE 2 but other than that nothing much.

Why not a one about england's history of stealing other people's countries with the cunning use of a flag? Or in the case of India, a motherload of money.

Hey you have to know exactly where to hit not only what to hit with. As a matter of fact if you can buy their leaders or lawmakers you could probably rule most of the world ... except Japan they are too much honorbound and fanatics to keep their country free.

I would buy an RTS based on Canadian history, Maybe it could be set up like AOE 2?

Just as long as the player could Be a canadian commander during 1812 when the american invasion was tricked into retreat by a bunch of Canadians in British uniforms. ;D
