I want to make a webgame that uses the arcade tokens, or perhaps uses the prizes you purchase. Or both.
One idea is: maybe the prizes you buy are actually seeds, and there's a Farmer's Market game where the seeds can sprout and be sold for more tokens, or kept as a different sort of prize. Plants can have a smiley face on them. Or maybe a different face if you don't tend to them properly?
So you would buy, e.g., wheat seeds on the website, plant them in the game, and you can either sell the wheat for more tokens or keep wheat as a decorative prize... Maybe if you collect enough ingredients you could craft a muffin 😛
I kind of like this idea, but I would have to plan a lot, and make vector art for a bunch of plants which might take forever. I'll do some experimenting with it.
Inventing original game ideas is tough! That's why so many of my games are remakes. Maybe I need to improve my game engine more, so prototyping new ideas is easier. Or use a different engine such as PixiJS. I tried Phaser before and didn't like it, but the Pixi documentation looks better.
