I just completed Origins and it has by far exceeded all of my expectations.
Origins has been my most anticipated game of the year, even above the likes of Skyrim, Dark Souls and Uncharted.
The game was perfect!
I really hope we get to see more of Rayman in this format!
I especially hope we get to see some DLC for the game, which doesn't seem too unlikely to me!
The way the game is set up means it would be pretty easy to add in new levels, and since it was originally planned as a downloadable game, the team must be comfortable with digital distribution!
I also hope the team gets the same amount of freedom with a sequel, letting them be as imaginative and playful as they were on this game!
I cant even imagine the things they could work in if they were given a bigger budget with the same amount of freedom they had to work on this game!
I have played the Rayman Origins demo on PS3 and it jumped to the top of my christmas list. I have been thinking about a possible sequel and I have come up with some ideas:
STORY- An evil volcano with a face on it and 2 floating hands (like Rayman's) is fighting a mountain (also with a face and hands). The mountain gets punches in the face and blown far away, it lands in the middle of a field without its hands. The volcano erupts spreading its minions across the land. Rayman, Globox etc find the weak mountain covered in enemies and agree to help him.
STRUCTURE- The first world is climbing up the mountain. After that you enter the hub (not a map that lets you select worlds), which is a mountain top with some cloud cover, snow, pecks and huts. At the hub you can go through portals to go to different worlds (which are maps). The at the end of every world instead of an electoon and mosquito stage their is a boss fight which takes place near varying forms of thermal vent (because of the volcano bad guy). After boss fights you get colourful rocks. Every now and again new waves of volcanic enemies fly towards the mountain so you need to defend it using the mosquito, after all 5 mosquito stage you free a nymph (getting a new power). After you get however many coloured rocks there are they combine to make new arms for the mountain. The mountain then charges towards the volcano and you go to the final world, the volcano. In this world you have 5 different levels to begin with which each lead on to the same next levels, in each of the 5 levels you break into the volcano in a different way, with the aid of a different Nymph (breaking in, using a disgise, digging in, dropping in and destroying the volcano's hands). Then you just go through the other levels and defeat the person at the core of the volcano, Mr. Dark (although you dont find that out until the end).
SOME WORLD IDEAS- Sandbox Desert. Toy City. Computer Core.
POWERS- All those from Rayman Origins, but starting with some of them. Double jump. Dig.
Ok, im out of ideas + I didnt explain them very well. But you should be able to get the gist of it. Let me know what you think.
need more rayman!
Yes this game was nothing short of amazing! So great I bought it for both my ps3 and 360 and earned all trophies/achievements on both systems. Really hoping for either some DLC or another sequel to this amazing masterpiece of a game.
