Interaction With House and Team
Hello, I had an idea to make the game a little more enjoyable and interactive. I'd like to present a fake case to outline my idea, which would move beyond the simple facial expressions that player characters have in response to NPC's.
The case end diagnosis is a foreign virus found in some sushi a patient ate. Here is an example of how an interaction would go;
House: I think it's time for Strong and Silent to contribute. Any ideas?
Player Character has three options to choose for a response; one is correct, one makes sense diagnostically but is incorrect, and the third is a trick bad answer. So;
Dr. Morrow: Choose A. "The patient is a vegetarian and passed out. Check for anemia."
Choose B. "The patient is a vegetarian and passed out. However, some vegetarians 'cheat' and eat fish. Check the patient's home for stashed goodies."
Choose C. "The patient is a vegetarian and passed out. If they have only been eating veggies and soy and have kept up their protein levels through non meat methods, I would give them dye and run an MRI to check for a brain tumor."
All of these make sense within the case parameters, but each would have a different reward. Answer A could have something like a small med pack, answer B (which would be the "most correct" answer) could have a House Credit award or something similar, and answer C could have a small monetary award.
Bonus: House could make snarky comments to each of these answers before barking orders.
Please let me know what you think, and thank you for your time.
Pretty creative and interesting. I can't tell you what they will do, but all suggestions and ideas are considered. Thanks!
Absolutely. I honestly don't know how Facebook games work in regards to helping out and things of that nature, but I have written articles for comedy site Cracked.com. I am also a Workshop Moderator, helping people to make their pitches for articles in the correct editorial format, making sure their premise is smooth, things of that nature.
That said, I would love to help out with scripting for this if that is needed. I giggled myself to sleep last night thinking of House responses and doing research on medical things.
Again, thank you for your time, and I hope my abilities are considered if at all possible within the framework of your company.
Hi DawnMorrow2012 --
Again, thank you for playing and for submitting your ideas! They are always appreciated!

I also like the idea of my avatar being more interactive; the CSI game on FB has that feature.
