Route 50 Dressup game!

I blame Frosti, Swotsy, and Grovyle for this idea.

Possibly in flash. It could be a really fun and silly way to get people into the mythos. Dress up your own persona, other characters, etc. People could request--or even commission things to add to the game, and it could receive updates whenever a bunch of cool stuff has been added. Or whatever! Hopefully, different people would like to contribute.

Hey, this seems like a great idea! It's simple, but people could have fun with this game. Also, maybe you can upload whatever monstrosity you created, and then people can see what you made! (kinda like Powder Toy)

Then again, Flash may sport a versatile and really flexible coding language, but not many people know how to use it as they prefer the more advanced gaming platforms ^^" Well, at least I don't know anyone that has any experience with Flash.

"but I'd assume there's some way to transfer other files into flash, yeah?" <- Pretty sure I spotted an Import function in Flash when I was taking a tour of CS4 XD

We tried this once a longgggg time ago. It didn't end up working out well...I think conflicting art styles and lack of interest maybe? I don't remember too well. Not to be a debbie downer but something to keep in mind. The eevee project I think did well so it's probably possible. Also i'm not sure how flash works, but the artists I believe would be limited to using that only as their program?

Whoa, good points. You'd have to ask Frosti and Swots--this is their brainchild--but I'd assume there's some way to transfer other files into flash, yeah?

I'd assume so? But i'm not so sure. But yeah to make it work with collaborating artists will be difficult. Because we have a wide range of art styles and all. But having many artists would help with the large amount of customizing it seems you guys wish to have? Also if you did "commissions" for it, would part of the commission go to the site or all of it? Or all to the artist, or possibly multiple if the person who is putting it all together has to add it separately. And things such as will it be possible to make those items only available to that person? Or will they be available to everyone and is it really fair to have them pay and have everyone have access to them? Other things to consider.

My thought was that one person would make the base for the person, and then other people would make clothes designed to fit on that base. As for 'commissions', I'm not really sure how that would work. Possibly with credits earned just through being active, as a sort of incentive to post/comment/whatever.

However! I have no experience with flash, or with dressup games. I'm not entirely sure how to make this all work.
