Blobvolution is my very first forum game ,so please don’t be too harsh on me if things go wrong. Not that it should, but anyway..
In this game, you start with two blobs(Duh).Using the “majority wins” rule, the blobs will perform certain actions. As time progresses you will make you blob grow legs, arms, and so on. So at the end what used to be a ball of meat turns into a ferocious monster, a peaceful herbivore,etc. Now to let me get into detail.
So, such as the name implies (Since Blobvolution is Blob + Evolution, FYI) you can evolve your Blob. So in the beginning, people can choose to make the blob grow legs, arms, two eyes, etc. And later on it diverges into hands, feet, fur,armor, and so on. Some small evolutions might be done the next turn, and some big ones might take a while. How many different things you can evolve on your blob at the same time, depends on your blob’s brain size. As long as your blob doesn’t go starving or whatnot, its brain size will grow every x number of turns. At the start, you can only choose 1 thing to evolve. After a few turns, its brain will grow, and
you will be able to choose 2 things, and it continues.
Now, one of the things your blob can gain is powers. This includes poison,electricity,fire,water,air,nature,ice and rock. Each of them takes a few turns to gain, and it modifies slightly your blobs personality.
Fire-Poison-Electricity : The blob is more agressif. It is more prone to attacking something when hungry. It makes a good guard for the nest, though.
Air-Water: Moody. Reacts more to events more than other blobs. Because water can be a calm little river, or it can be rain, or a huge wave, and the same explanation for wind.
Nature-Rock-Ice: Slightly less actif. Now you can look at me and say “Well, that sucks!”, but the reason for that is because it would promote growing in size, which I will get to.
Blob Size and Energy/food
Like all living beings, blobs need to eat. The more they eat, the more energy they can use up, so the more actions they can do. That means you CAN have the blobs do multiple things in a turn, it will just use up more energy. When the blob gains an excessive amount of stored up energy, it will grow a full size, giving it more health, somwhat stronger and more intimidating. I will have a bar up to show you each blobs energy level, so you know how much he is left to eat before growing.
If your blob is omnivore, herbivore or carnivore is up to you, and hwat it eats. If after two turns or so there still is no way to determine its diet, you can choose what it is when you choose the mouth type*
One thing I forgot to mention is breeding. Yes, Blobs can breed between each other! The infant blob, when born, will either be like the mother, like the father, a mix, or just a straight out blob (in which case breeding did not go very well) with some exceptions. Before breeding, the blobs must make a nest. Out of what? Whatever they can find. Lets just say a nest made out of bones gives a different one than a nest made out of branches or feathers,
I think I covered it all, now lets get to the game!
