(Tower’s waaay too early in development to even consider suggesting collaborations, so I’m just going to consider this a general discussion thread.)
Some people don’t like collaborations usually because they break the art style of the game or sometimes come off feeling like an advertisement. For me however I think it depends on the games, and Tower Unite would be a great fit. GMTower was pretty much a huge melting pot of content from other games and that felt natural. That being said, what are some games you’d want to see do a collaboration with Tower? How would their game affect tower and vice versa?
For a detailed example, I’ve been playing a lot of Viscera Cleanup Detail lately and the two games have a bunch of possibilities for a collab.
For example content from TU put into VCD could be:
-Hospital from Virus as a playable level where players need to clean up after the mess caused from a game of Virus. (Cleanup virus corpses/blood, bullet casings, guns featured from virus, etc.)
-The level could also feature unique trophies based on iconic items from Tower, such as a catsack for example.
While content from VCD put into TU could be:
-A level from VCD modified and reworked for either Virus or Zombie Massacre.
-Several iconic items from VCD sold as decorations in condos. Disposal Bins, Buckets, etc for example.
-Several iconic weapons from VCD sold to play with in plaza/condos. Mop, Sniffer and Laser Welder for example.
-Optional Janitor outfit for Male & Female playermodels.
Few minor examples could be:
-Payday gang masks as accessories for playermodels from Payday 2.
-A reskin of the Unit Bills weapons to resemble Dosh from Killing Floor 2.
-A companion cube prop and Aperture Science outfits from Portal 2.
You get the idea. What are some games you’d want to see do a collaboration with Tower? How would their game affect tower and vice versa?
