Movies and Film

When obtaining game ideas from a film (or movie), we want to utilize the film’s premise (plot, theme, and action) and not its character names, costumes, creature design and look, and names of places and objects.

The film Alien has a unique character (the alien), a specific spaceship design, a famous cast, and particular character names. If we want to mimic Alien in our game design, first we would call our game something interesting and descriptive like Space Predator or Space Cannibal to get the audience, publishers, and stores interested and to give a preconceived notion about our game.

If we decided that our alien creature was to look like a carnivorous dinosaur, we might title the game Space Raptor to bring in the Jurassic Park audience. We would design our own alien, perhaps describing it or using an artist to sketch our scary alien vision. We may use the crew dynamics of the film Alien like each member’s rank, sex, age, and race and then change the character’s name and face design to differ from the film.

In our pitch to publishers and in future sales and marketing material, we would utilize the Alien basis to correlate potential sales, audience interest, and a marketing strategy. We would obviously claim that our game is scarier and better than the film that spawned two sequels, Aliens and Alien 3, as well as several lesser rip-off films. Our pitch would include the facts that in 1979 Alien was the top-grossing film and in 1997 Alien 3 was that year’s top-grossing film. Also based on the film data, we could list the demographics of our audience like age, sex, income level, and international appeal.
