Title: Fan Idea: THE iDOLM@STER Online
Post by: ninjamitsuki on July 11, 2014, 04:32:06 am
My idea for how a MMO version of iM@S would be like... Just a pipe dream, this is never going to happen in a million years.

In the iDOLM@STER Online, you don't produce 765. You don't produce Cinderella Girls, Million Live, or any of those. Instead, you create your own idol in a very in-depth character creator. You can choose from dozens of personalities and voices for your idol, and even play around with the pitch a la The Sims 3. And of course you can make more than one have a unit.

The gameplay will be much like the console games, including the raising and communication, except with a multiplayer aspect. When you go do a festival, you're actually competing against another player's idol. But you can also make friends and collaborate with other producers, such as pairing up your idols with them.

Costumes would be given out through gachas, and you can also get special idols through gacha, including 765 idols.

The song selection would be all standard songs from the console games like Go My Way, Kiramekirari, Ready!!, you know. There might be a song gacha, too.

Huh. Why has this not been made before? This is actually an amazing idea! I'd love to see this idea expand and even know about some customization options and some cameos from some characters from the franchise. Good luck! ^_^

Good luck? I am not even going to attempt to dream at creating this, this is just my theory/wishful thinking of what an iM@S MMO would be like.

Sorry, force of habit. :P Either way, I'd love to hear more about this.

Hm, well more fantasies about this kind of game...

I'm trying to think of what the social aspect would be like. You do play as a producer, not an idol, but there should be a way to distinguish each player from each other. I was thinking of having the design for producer be like the fanon/puchimas version, with the big P for a head. Except you can customize the color scheme of the P-head producer, have the option of being a female producer with office-lady attire under the P-head, and you can buy all sorts of crazy hats for your producer to wear. You just pimp your producer with hats and accessories, pretty much. XD And I imagine there would be producer hat gachas. The way producers are distinguished is through the color scheme and the hats. There would definitely be Namco themed hats, like Klonoa's hat, Prince of All Cosmos heads, Wonder Momo and Dig Dug helmets, etc.

Aaaand. I don't think the game could be limited to female idols, maybe you can make male idols, too. And units don't even have to be limited to just one sex, you can try making units of mixed sexes and see how that turns out.

The default floral/luxury/starry costumes for your custom idols depend on the personality picked. All tsundere idols have this design, all dojikko idols have this design, etc.

For the Producers, maybe having your P's cell phone playing a big role? As in, you can meet other Producers, exchange "phone numbers" (really exchanging usernames for a friends list) and call them at any time for you to possibly collaborate between idols for a festival or something. I dunno, I'm just throwing stuff out there.

WOO! Gender Equality!
