A game idea I've been mulling over for about a week now. The game takes place on Earth, and the planet's destruction is an accepted fact, expected to occur within a week from the game's start. When all players have taken their turn posting, a day has passed in-game. This may end up meaning the game can finish in exactly 7 days, though I won't push for that. You can choose to be yourself or someone you've made up. The time period of the game is effectively the present, so humanity has no way to escape the doomed planet. This obviously means people are varied in their reactions to the events, but bear in mind how little can occur within a week. As much as necessity is the mother of invention, how likely is it that any one person* can solve the problems of; Getting a successful human breeding population off of Earth Getting food humans can eat off of Earth Finding a planet capable of sustaining human life off of Earth Getting humans to that planet All in one week? The planet's inevitable destruction was discovered several months before when two comets collided, and their combined mass (about equal to the moon) was shown to be on an altered course to Earth that was 98.7% likely to occur. Seeing as the best solutions to humanity's plight were purely theoretical, a reasonable amount of people behaved...reasonably. As in, accepting their fate, making peace with their lives, etc. These people are the "Zen" class. A certain population began to panic, unable to reconcile their pending doom - they are the "Hamlet" class. You are clawing at your own past to right wrongs, or backtrack to see what choices could've been made to hypothetically improve your current nearly-over life, according to your perception of self. Certain others began acting out personal fantasies, treating their last days like a videogame. These are the "Id" class. The world is ending, why not rob a bank? Money's meaningless, who'd miss that useless paper? Yet another population of supremely paranoid individuals started leveling "I told you so's" at literally everyone else - they are "Dicks." Everyone ignored what you were saying. But who's wrong now?! Of course, those with a type of cosmology that reflects assumptions of an apocalypse used this real event as proof of their collective faiths, but still would act in accordance with the first four mentalities. So, are you: Zen Hamlet Id or a Dick? I'm sure there are further questions regarding the setting that I haven't addressed, or perhaps possibilities within the game I hadn't considered. However, *There's an as of yet unknown way to "win" this game. It's a team effort. Any takers? Some minor edits: size of comet, retraction of superfluous class description.
