Title: We should make a Romanov Video Game
Post by: Gorseheart on August 26, 2010, 06:08:05 PM
Thanks to these forums people come together, and we all have different talents and such. Wouldn't it be cool (if possible) to make a historically correct video game, or just write how it would be like.

Example, if I were making this game I'd start it off with a brief slideshow Historical thing about the family, then you can play and talk to anyone of NAOTMAA and/if/or their tutors around the palace. You do small tasks like, take a photo, find a doll etc. And at the end of every level, you receive a photo of the family from the year you are playing. And the game will eventually end (after going through series of historical events) at the Ipateiv House.

I can just imagine, if you play Alexei, he can only run into so many things before he gets bruised. There can be a level of Anastasia trying to get him into a crowd and what not.

Well I don't mean that this should become real, I just hope it would. But in the mean time, lets just imagine it!

I would name it The fate of the Romanovs or something like that.

Yeah, I can imagine that, and with mini games too,(depending on what chapter you're on) like when Nicky save Anastasia from drowning! I think some of the chapters you have to ace to get to your lessons on time, or all sorts of stuff! I think you can really build on this, after all, most video games are short and have a ton of holes in them, but with the Romanovs, you can just keep on building to it!

I don't know, if I saw such I game, I might want to do what James T. Kirk did with the Kobayashi Maru scenario, namely change the rules so I could save them.

That's true, TimM, I wouldn't really want them to die, I mean go through all those levels and have all your characters die off would seem like the "lost weekend" in your life: It's there, and you don't want it to be there....
It'd still be a cool idea, though! I wonder if they could make a Curse of the Romanovs (book by Statin Rabin) movie and/or video game! It's still a fictional book, but I really thought it was a good read, and love'd to see it go far.:)

That would be interesting... I would learn how to play video games for that!  :)

I've been wanting to play Tatiana in either a fighting game like Melty Blood or in a Final Fight clone.

I'd also love a very-well-done OTMA anime series.

What outfits do you think of them would wear for level one?

Well, depends on whether the whole game is set during one year, or each level is a different year. If it is the latter, what year were you thinking of it starting at?

I was thinking whole latter, maybe the year would be 1909 or 1910. What do you think?

Well, I was imagining it starting earlier, like, before the 1900s, even. Just throwing it out there, but maybe it could start when Nicholas and Alix meet, so it would make more sense to people who do not know anything about the Romanovs...  :-\

That's cool. After the Jap-Russo war and before the Bloody Sunday massacre too?

Post by: MademoiselleAndrea on August 27, 2010, 09:22:09 PM
I don't quite get what you mean...weren't those two events both in 1905? and plus, N&A met in 1884...
The Bloody Sunday Massacre would be scary, I don't know if I would play that part, (if you can skip parts in video games, of course. I'm practially clueless on these sorts of matters, as I've never played one before...)

Oh, here I'll explain, usually, if a video game has a back story, there's usually a little video or slideshow and story about the game.

Post by: MademoiselleAndrea on August 28, 2010, 11:03:25 AM
Oh, I see. So...if it were starting around 1910, what would happen? Visit to Germany? Or everyday activities around the palace? And what time of year would it be?

Gorseheart, Love the idea of a Romanov video game. What about Sims 3?

I wish they would make a all-exclusive Romanov sims 3 expansion pack, and you can download actual buildings, and play either of NAOTMAA, and converse with servants (they make them look exactly or hopefully like them) Because, for me when I build the Alexander Palace in sims 3 (my thread sims 3 alexander palace) i am dissapointed because the ceilings do not go as high as the actual ones at AP do. I wish the sims 3 could make accurate furnishings, and buildings, and you could be anyone of the imperial family. lol i have a lovely imagination :P

Yeah! Like the game starts of through the children POV and you can do small tasks around the palace to complete a level and go to Germany (or something like that)

I want one for Playstation 2, Wii, and Ds! :D Take it everywhere, and hopefully there's enough levels to never be bored of it! (Unlike Grand Theft Auto, I'm super bored of that game! Lol.)

You want a Romanov video game? Then I have good and bad news for you. ;-)

Good news: There was an Anastasia video game for Playstation 1 based on the movie (but not on the original movie it seems). Unfortunately I don't have any further information about the game but I doubt it's historically correct. At least it's Romanov related. ;-) Here's a pic:

Bad news: It's a very old game (and wasn't popular). I guess it's extremely hard to get.

Thank you! But we're conversing about what would make a great game. What do you think? P.S. I remember a PC game of Anastasia based on the movie. DX

Oh gosh, that hardly would count as a Romanov video game, it's probably so innacurate that if I ever tried to play it, I would explode, or something.  :P
I mean, honestly, look at her clothes! And her hair is black. Besides, it's too cartoony for my taste. It might be fun for some, but who knows... :-\
I wonder, could someone with good computer skills, (not me) make some example pictures of a really good, historically accurate Romanov video game, or something like that? ??

I know. I just wanted to say that there are Romanov related video games.

The game I posted is most likely more suitable for younger children and I would never play myself. But I think it's nice to see that there are Romanov related video games even if they are directed to a younger target group.

Oh yes very! Sorry I didn't get what you meant by that. My apologies for sounding brash!
