    So my stepdad, sister and I are writing a text-based computer game for my 8YO brother's birthday. Basically it's this random guy (my brother) wandering around an abandoned town "fighting" monsters by answering educational questions. Sneaky and underhanded, we know. [​IMG]

    The game has three levels, and we've already written a chain of caves (level one) and an abandoned house (level two). Anyone have ideas as to what level three should be? It's silly, but I'm stumped. [​IMG] We were thinking a forest, but that seemed too close to the caves.
    Any and all ideas are welcomed.

    *Nods* I like this idea.

    "What are you doing, Evelyn?"
    "I'm looking up ideas for your game." OH, SHOOT!! I AM IN SO MUCH TROUBLE!!
    "What game? You mean the treasure hunt?"
    "Yeah, that." Phew. Thank God he wants to do a treasure hunt party.

    I like underwater. You could also pick in the clouds. Or perhaps in an old factory. I used to love games where you could wander through factories with all the machinery going [​IMG]

    I think under water is a GREAT idea!! Also the forest... could have the trees be alive.. maybe some forest critters be involved.. (racoons, squirrels, deer.....)
    Even the sky... up in the clouds... where he has to hop from cloud to cloud and answer questions while dodging birds.....
    What a great present!!! [​IMG]
    ETA: I see Ray mentioned clouds already! [​IMG] OOps!
