ok, that would work. By the way, when I said "If anything it'll be because of a 'virus'", I didn't mean a computer virus, I meant a disease type virus, like resident evil. What do you think?
Perhaps the clues are hidden amongst certain enemies that you have to kill. Maybe they are all over the map, and you just collect them as you go along. The last piece could probably be protected by a boss. The clues could be pieces of parchment, ripped out of a secret book that tells you about the shotgun and various other myths of the game.
Also, I need to work out where the main levels are... which is to do with where the turrets etc are.
Lol. You really want a comment on that virus don't you? Very well. You obviously need some sort of a cause for this virus...Aha! Perhaps the Glitch was supposed to be a special person from that city, but when he glitched, that whole city changed, and thus it is now "infected", or glitched. Or, maybe a curse was placed on the city because the people in it did something horrible, and were punished. Or maybe the people in it were practicing magic, and they all got together to create a spell that was supposed to cure the world of all ailments, including evil, but they weren't strong enough to maintain the spell, and the whole spell unraveled and reversed what it was that it was supposed to do, and created a blight on the city before anyone could contain or stop it.
Coming up with ideas for this game is so easy Now that I think about it, coming up with ideas for most games are easy.
