Topic: Books That Would Make Good Video Games
This was such a tricky topic! I grew up with two massive gamer brothers (one even studied Games Design at Uni) but not even that could really prepare me for the trickiness of this weeks topic 🙂
I only managed 4 but I didn’t want to just add another one for the sake of making 5. Here goes though kiddos. As always click the book title to be linked to that books page.
I just recently finished this book. It is a middle grade book about a magic circus and a pretty impressive “Light Bender”. I think this would be a pretty good game especially for kids to explore the different attractions at the Circus and perhaps there would be mini games at each attraction. I see it playing a little like Spyro: Riptos Rage.
So much happens in book one alone that I think it would be a pretty interesting game to play. Each level could be a heist or an escape and you’d also get to explore Ketterdam and other places in the Grisha-verse so how could you possibly not love that! I see it playing a little like the Harry Potter Games.
I feel this will probably make a lot of peoples lists but I had to include it. I wasn’t overly keen on the book I found it bland and quite predictable but I would definitely love a game based on this plot. I can see it playing a lot like the kind of games my younger brother plays where you can walk around freely but their’s an ultimate goal such as saving people – wow that was certainly vague but I have no idea of any of the names 🙂
I love this duology and I think it would be a good game even if it was just an app. As the first book is a motorbike race across various countries the game would be more focused on this than the major parts of the plot. I know there are a lot of racing games out there but if you give this one a little of the plot and you played as Yael (a shapeshifter of sorts) that would be an interesting twist.
