Yes, even if genius exists, big games originate from somewhere. Whether it's a second try by a studio, or a deja-vu idea that "clicks" in a developer's head, there are plenty of different situations! Pay tribute to these unidentified titles that have made a living.
Minecraft Infiniminer (l'avant Minecraft)
Minecraft is a video game staple from "survival | Sandbox." But did you know that it did not originate directly from Notch's creator? It's a construction and mining game where two teams must compete to earn the most points. "I realized when I saw Infiniminer," he says. On his blog, he admits that he was a bit irritated.
Narbacular Drop (l'avant Portal)
The two blue and orange portals, the saying "the cake is a lie," and the fact that we have just created a really interesting concept for the game Narbacular Drop. The game has nothing to do with it, although it does exist.
King's Field (l'avant Demon's Souls)
Demon's Souls is still the starting point for Dark Souls, although it is not the same as Demon's. Even before his arrival at FromSoftware in 2004, the Japanese company has already got its hands on King's Field, a first-person action-RPG with a lot of hidden secrets.
Battle-cars powered by Supersonic Acrobatic Rockets (l'avant Rocket League)
Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars did not last long in the hearts of gamers. For good reason, Rocket League is the same game, with cars having to score goals at full speed. "It's basically the same game," says Corey Davis of the GDC.
Spelunker (l'avant Spelunky)
Spelunky, a PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Arcade title from 2012, is a simple game that requires you to go through caves, collecting precious resources. You can earn bonuses (whip, bombs, ropes), and try to get the farthest. In short, it's a nice game.
Ingress (l'avant Pokémon Go)
Did you find Pokémon Go revolutionary at the time? Imagine that three years ago, in 2013, Niantic already published Ingress, a game that consists of two factions: the Enlightened or the Resistance. During each cycle (there are 50 per year), the team with the highest score wins.
