Default If there was a Foster's Adventure Game

Awhile ago we were all talking about what genre of game we'd like to see a licensed Foster's game as. We all know it would never happen, but alot of us agreed that a classic adventure game (like Monkey Island, Sam & Max, Grim Fandango(woo all LEC ref's)) would be the best bet.

Now lets say we were making such a game, what kind of puzzle would we throw in?

I'd like to see some loosely episode based puzzles as well as some original, the first one I can think of off the top of my head is one where you (You'd prob be playing as Bloo or Mac... Or maybe more characters in a Maniac Mansion like fashion) have to trick Madame Foster and Frankie to cook something other then IT.

Really there are lots of fun thing's you could think of for puzzles! I had more ideas when I came up with this topic, but right now I'm kinda brain dead (middle of the week, oi)

So lets hear your ideas, that are probably a million times better then mine!

Since I am working on my own game (well I *was* working on it, but I'm just so dang busy) I've already thought of some good puzzles. But I can't tell you guys, lol, since I still want to release the game. But yeah, a game with puzzles to solve would be great.

A point-and-click game sounds like a good idea (think of the concept for the Wii or the DS, and you know what I'm talking about).

Also, it should have at least an original plot, but at the same time, it retains the humor, characters and storyline from the show.

To me, that's how a Foster's game should be.

I could code a Interactive fiction Game using TADS. I learned v3 of it for my Project course to finish my Programing degree. but since my writing is week I would need someone else to write the story, proofread and assist in the nontechnical creation process.

Adventure games are great!!!!

Foster's version of AD&D! We sit in your mom's basement eating icrowave burritos, light up some pachoutli, put on a Uriah Heep album, and roll us some d20!

no need for that,
Just use the game TOON from Steve Jackson.
It is better than D&D since you just steal the dice from Yatzee

Hrm... If anyone wants inspiration for a puzzle game, play Clickdragtype. It's really, hard, and awesome. ^^
http://fizzlebot.com/cdt3.php
It requires Internet Explorer or there will be some glitches...


...but anyway, puzzles for Foster's obviously must be doable by some 9yo, and I'm not saying a 9yo can't complete ClickDragType, but it is way too hard for most of them. Somehow, I think we could do some Tile-Swap game (like Bejewled) with Goo's little IF's.

Edit: I remember playing Scooby-doo Gameboy games which were completely about solving 1 biiiig puzzle. It could be something like that maybe!
