I have this new idea for a game. Tell me what you think about this:
Ok, this would start out as a flash game online. Basically, it is a robot combat game where the robots you fight with are determined by your computer's specifications. For example, if you have an HP computer with a core 2 duo processor and an integrated graphics card, you will have a different robot than someone who is playing on a Dell Xps with a quad core processor and a GE-force 8600. With a system like this set up, people would be able to compete and see who has the best computer specifications. Each piece of hardware in the computer would be scanned, and this would happen using one of the programs in which the user sends a report on their system specs to the program itself. Likewise, each brand and model of hardware would have a corresponding part to be fitted to your own robot.
So, in this game players can battle 1 v 1 in an arena, or they can choose to band together in groups of maybe 10-15 players. These groups would be set up to fight against "bosses," which would be robots formed using the system specs of modern supercomputers, like those at google or the National Security Agency. In order to defeat the boss, you obviously do not have to match the power of the supercomputer, though you porbably would have to have quite a few quality computers.
I envision this game looking something like Castle Crashers in its early stages, but maybe moving onto a 3d style later. It would be called something like "Spec Mech 2009."
