I recently got an email asking what kind of spin off game you would like to see for Smash Up. This made me curious what others thought about the subject.

Personally I don't think any of the factions are really strong enough to stand alone in a bloated gaming market. How many games do we see get released a year with themes such as Cthulhu, Zombies, Wizards...

There is one game I would like to see though. I'd love it if they made a game similar to Heroscape using the various factions in Smash Up.

So what about you? What kind of spin off game would you be interested in?

I always thought an anime would be perfect for this.

Game of factions.

A song about smashing bases.

Wargame would be a natural match.

I would take two routes:

1. Focus on one of the more unique factions/combos, such as Bear Cavalry, Kitties, Sharknadoes, Plant Zombies, etc. to make a strategic game. Maybe Everyone is a manipulative Kitty with 9 lives competing to sit in the arm chair, or maybe Bear Cavalry must face off against walking sharks in an area control game.

2. Take a single representative minion/personality from each faction and create a game where players work together with their unique character and abilities to accomplish a goal. Doesn't have to be cooperative; perhaps players get control of 2 or more factions and play competitively.

I wholeheartedly agree. The Smash Up factions are based on tropes and are basically parodies. Making a game about one of these factions and treating them as property of the Smash Up creators doesn't feel right to me, considering their popularity is based on the popularity of the things they reference. You can make a game about aliens, vampires, man-eating plants or whatever, but how do any of these benefit from being "as seen in Smash Up"? They're not as seen in Smash Up, they're as seen in the referenced source material.

I would love some Kind of YU Gi OH Anime with Smash up.
Animated Creatures or so.

Or something like this ps2 Game where the Cards came to live with the Camera.
