Top down survival, recolect resources in a lost planet to return, of course there are swarms of monsters, worse each day.
Repair survival, you have to spend your time correctly between repair an important object, upgrade, collect money, everything while each day more and more enemies come for you.
Yeah, could do something like the opening scene of No Man's Sky. Crash landed on a planet, the ship engines damaged and fuel is lost. Need to collect resources to repair the ship and find fuel to get off the planet. Could also be that the ship is damaged beyond repair but there is an other faulty ship so we need to fix that one up by collecting resources and carry the parts of our ship over there using an inventory, limited or unlimited.... As we carry the parts could fight some monsters just to make the travelling fun. Could also add some monsters that comes for the ship during the night. Day time collecting, crafting, repair night time tower defence around the ship we are fixing. Or similar to Riddick, if we launch the ship then monsters coming so we need to play a little tower defence only during the launch at the end as a closing scene if we fail at this point, game over.
Could also make it so after certain amount of time monsters are coming anyway for the ship or when we launch the ship, or a storm is coming in X amount of time and game over if we late but then monsters coming if repair done and trying to take off...
Could also add a leader board to see who was able to get off the planet faster, since it would be an example/tutorial for the community, 4ian could host it maybe?...Don't know.
We can definitely use the musics shared by Eric Matyas. His got some really good songs. Only need to credit him...http://soundimage.org/
FPS Creator does have some decent sound effects which is free to use. Including it for none commercial purposes should be fine.https://github.com/TheGameCreators/FPS-Creator-Classic
being a top down pixel art I'm sure it would be relatively easy to do and find staff.
We could also make it sort of like a flat isometric style.
Not nice but fit the purpose and it would allow us the mix side scrolling platformer, isometric and top down view assets. It doesn't need to perfectly fit.
I do also own AssetForge, I could make some simple assets with it in minutes even isometric ones and by reducing the resolution could make it look pixel art, not nice of that but would be pixelated https://assetforge.io/
I can recommend this tool to anyone, really awesome.
