This isn't exactly a story, yet, but I thought it'd be a good place to post this. When I was a kid, me and my little brother would get on MS Paint and go to 8x magnification. Then we'd play a little game we simply called Space, where we'd have tiny little pixel ships to fly around, fight space bandits, and do maintenance on planets. Anyway, long story short, I dug up the old idea and I'm now making an RPG computer game based on those same ships. My problem is, I'm more of the Fantasy story-writing type, and I'm no Science Fiction freak at all. I have no idea what the storyling should be. If any of you are skilled in that area of expertise as far as storylines go, I would love to hear from you. All of you can add ideas. So far, this is all I've programmed into the game, and I'm stuck. It's vague, but I sort of wanted it to be at the first so you're not sure what's going on. It's centuries into the future, and you awaken. You are an A-8 Probe, constructed in the Perseus-509 Space Station in outer space. A man known only as "Dr. Aton" speaks to you on a computer screen and tells you that you were constructed to aid the humans indirectly from the space station and throughout outer space. Your first mission is to travel to the swamp planet Oronne to retrieve the Perseus-509 Station's defense turret, which malfunctioned and crash landed somewhere on the planet. You land on the planet, explore, and fight various alien creatures there, which aren't much of a threat. Finally, on a small inlet, you find the turret, still functional. As you take the turret(you can also equip it as an item for added accuracy), you start to move back to the takeoff site to return to space. Suddenly, you are attacked by a massive mutant alien. The alien was obviously once one of the types of creatures that you've already fought(called Oronne Turtles), but it has grown to immense size and is much more durable and fierce. It has shards of metal stuck in it, which may have caused its mutation. You defeat the creature with your built-in armament and return to the space station. Dr. Aton is impressed with you and apologizes, as you were obviously in for more than you had signed up for with the mission's difficulty. Pathetic, but that's all I could think of. Obviously, you'll be able to progress on to bigger space stations as the story progresses, as well as other planets. But I could really use some ideas and any suggestions as to the game's plot. Plot twists, surprises, anything like that is very welcome. I have the capabilities of making the graphics and programming easily, but that won't go very far if I don't have a storyline. Any help is welcome! Also, if you need to know anything about the mechanics of the game, (weapon types, enemy types, little quirks like that) if that will help, let me know. Thanks!
