EVE Online Prequel Game for social media platforms?

EVE Online: Rise of the Capsuleer prequel game, for social media platforms

my idea is you start out as an Empire Citizen, Life in the Empire is ****, Some Things Have to Change:
One day You see an Advertisement for The Birth Of The Capsuleer.
At that moment You see Your future as a Capsuleer with Lifetimes Of Clones, Corvettes & Skill Books at Your Fingertips.

The Capsuleer Resurrection Suite. Awaits You…

P.S. Farmville Killer :-) o7

Meh just make an android knockoff of fallout shelter but have it be WiS. W.i.S "The DOOR finally opens, coming to Android. Soon™" Explore Jita 4-4, Build and expand your capsuleer HQ. Send out Assasin Bots to raid your neighbors loot stashes and hack the local markets.

Ugh I hope nothing of the sort ever happens.



edit: EvE has a depth and richness to it because of the 14 years of player interactions and what that has built this game to be. It could not be re-created. EvE isn't even the best game as far as games go, but imo it's pretty good. EvE is a special game because it's players have built it into that. It is precisely this rich tapestry that players have woven EvE into that is the exact opposite of the shallow, simplistic farmville junk. To want to water the EvE universe down to a point it could fit into the vapid mold of a social media craptacular "game" is almost a crime. /rant

I seriously doubt there will be something like this.

But I seriously dont know from where CCP would want to take future subscribers.

Maybe there is something in it?

But you know, they are making NOVA. FPS game in the EVE world. It may get some recognition. I hope. I hope they will get some "revolutionary" features there. Like a real world items that would boost your in game statistics. Amiibo like.Only figurines would have to be really good quality. So you could get it even for the looks. ANd it would have to boost only things in PvE if there would be such option.

The only prequel that would work for the Eve playerbase is a dystopian descent into madness and the slow climb out. Where you play a long term game much like civilization after the Eve gate closes, things run out, colonies die, and it is mass chaos and out of this some survive, forge new racial and cultural identities based on lore and the greater Eve storyline but still with some single or multiplayer freedom, while scraping a living and then into the grandeur of pre Jovian Eve and then meeting the Jovians, negotiating for the capsuleer tech and then finally being pod born.

There could be multiple chapters within that time frame to base several games or a series off of quite frankly at each major step of Eves descent into madness and rise out to glory and New Eden.Twisted

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

Had to end sometime.

The only kind of social media game based on Eve would be all Project Discovery stuff.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

Honestly, a RTS game about the great war between the 4 empires might be a good 'prequel' game. Do it like star trek Armada and have multiplayer matches with the 4 races (and the jove appear at the end) and you might actually have something.

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

Just something that doesn't fit the lore. At all.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

Yeah nice article. I am playing that game to see what it is about, up to 56 dwellers. Would I spend $ on it? Hell no. So far though it is like a facebook game but without facebook.

My Reply was sarcasm by the way. A better Bad Idea than the op.
