The trademark for Blinx the Time Sweeper; the forgotten mascot for Microsoft's XBox, has been dropped a few months ago. This means that the time-stopping feline will not receive his own game without another person or company buying the trademark from Microsoft. Proof of this news is found at the following link.www.thegamescabin.com/news-mic…
So what does this has to do with the title of this journal? Simple. I want to make a Blinx the Time Sweeper game one day, taking assets from the original mechanics and lore of the game while changing a lot of the rather cookie-cutter elements from it. This means that I would make the game as fresh and intriguing as it should be in the first and second games. However, with these changes there will be the chance that these new ideas may bother the fan base that has experienced Blinx before.
These changes will not be put into actual motion until either the trademark is bought by me or by some company and I am hired onto the development team of the game. Both are seemingly further down the road. Nevertheless, I have come up with a good bit of ideas, sketches, and concepts for the game that I have named "Project: Blinx" for now. One of them being a new weapon to give to Blinx to replace the vacuum being used by him. This is a personal change due to having a protagonist being a janitor of time is too little of an affect on his position in the game. This does not mean that the Time Sweeper concept is thrown out the window.
So far, I am working on more ideas and may even get a few posted on this site. I may even create a portfolio once I am given the chance to pitch this to a company. I have a "Dev Team" name as well that I will use in association to the game and other products I may make in the future.
Anyone who have any comments to say for changes in Blinx, whether it is positive or negative, please let me know. I would like to know more about the fans' point of view before I finalize any of my own changes to it.
