Ever heard of the million dollar homepage? ([url removed, login to view]). I want to create the million dollar game. The idea is to have the million dollar homepage as the background "universe" of a computer game. I am thinking something along the lines of subspace ([url removed, login to view](computer_game)) but even simpler. The graphics do not need to be at all impressive and the gameplay only needs to be very simple. I want a game that is addictive but not visually impressive. Tetris might also work, building up adverts with the blocks.
Importantly the user should not have to download the game. This is going to be a part of a much larger website and I do not want the user to have to install any software. I was still hopeing for the game to be multiplayer but I'm not sure if that is possible?
On the specifics, I want to sell the adverts in pre-determined blocks, not pixel by pixel, the customers should be able to bid against one another for these blocks and they should be refreshed periodically, say every six months for example.
The game will be a small section of a much larger site and it must fit into the template of the site. I was really thinking about it as a Java App.
If you have any other ideas for a game it doesn't have to follow the subspace or tetris themes. Suggestions are more than welcome, especially if they are going to be much cheaper and easier to make. Gameplay must be tried, tested and good. The game should be controlled be the keyboard and clicking on the adverts in the background with the mouse should follow links given by the user.
