Video Game Idea: "Sesame Street Party"

    Here's an idea I have for a Sesame Street video game. Sesame Street Party. It's just like Mario Party and Muppet Party Cruise. There would be a handful of game boards for the main play, and several places for the characters to land on. Like Mario Party but unlike Muppet Party Cruise, a mini-game would begin after every player had their turn, and like Muppet Party Cruise, each mini-game would be hosted by a different character and also allow the players to unlock a video clip.

    The players would include:

    Big Bird
    Ernie
    Bert
    Elmo
    Zoe
    Cookie Monster
    Grover
    The Count

    The main games would be:

    The Street: with a board where the player can go all around Sesame Street, including the side across from the normally-seen buildings (mostly modled after the buildings seen across from 123 Sesame Street in Follow That Bird rather than Elmo in Grouchland) and Around the Corner. If you land by oscar's trash can you get points taken away, but if you land in an area where you encounter Mr. Snuffleupagus, Guy Smiley, or Telly you get extra points. If you land in a spot where you encounter Lefty you get a few choices of what you want that you can spedn your points on (these objects include an extra turn, have another player lose a turn, and gto get ahead of the next player).

    Ernie and Bert's Apartment: play around Ernie and bert's apartment, where you play in the living room, bedroom, and bathroom. You get extra points if you land on Ernie's Rubber Duckie or Bert's bottlecap collection, but lose points if you land on his paper clips.

    The Count's Castle: Play around the counts castle. Get extra points if you land on a number (the number of points you get depends on the number you land on), and lose points if you land on a letter.

    Elmo's World: Play at Elmo's World. Get extra points if you encounter Dorthy or Mr. Noodle. Lose points if you encounter Oscar who is hiding somewhere.

    I'll list soem mini-games, hosts, and bonus video clips later.

    Good Idea

    This sounds like an interesting game Minor if you can find somebody with access to a video game making company pitch it to him/her it's be interesting to try to play it

    There's some good stuff here... Would prefer the Clay Bust of Bert bonus clip for the Face Lift Magic game, and the Dental Care Pageant clip for the Tooth Care game instead.

    Also, you might want to change the hosts of the first batch of mini-games so that there's a greater diversity of main and obscure characters involved... Not just the main characters as the main game players and hosts of their own mini-games. Unless this is how it was done in Muppet Party Cruise, in which case, kindly disregard.
    BTW: It's "three" legged racing, just so you know.

    Also, this reminds me of an action/adventure alphabet game I made for SS, filled with Muppet and human characters. Could expound on it in another thread though.
    Thanks for sharing this idea with us MinorMuppets.

    Muppet Party Cruise did have main characters that the player was able to play as host mini-games along with those who diddn't. Of course, for my Sesame Street Party idea, most of the hosts would appear in the games as well, unlike how in Muppet Party Cruise very few mini-game hosts appeared in the mini-games (most of them just introduced the games and announced the winners).

    Another idea that I had: once the main game is finished, there would be an award ceremony hosted by Guy Smiley, who gives awards for all participants (whetehr it be first place or last place). After this, some other characters would be begging to play, and then the player can have the choice to play as Herry Monster, Prairie Dawn, Biff, Sully, Rosita, or Sherlock Hemlock.

    Some more ideas.....

    After the first round ends and other characters become playable, Lefty would hold up a small password, so if the players want to play as one of those characters without having to play another game, they could write down the code, and go to a password area on the main screen where Lefty would appear and ask for a password, after which the player can type the password in. There could also be a password to unlock all video clips featured.

    In addition to the video clips that become unlocked after playing certain mini-games, each big world that players play on will unlock three video clips each once the game is over. For the Sesame Street world, the clips would be Wheels on my Feet, If I Was a Cloud in the Sky, and the skit where Big Bird tells the viewers to hold a grown-ups hand when crossing the street. For Ernie and Bert's apartment, the clips would be the skit where Ernie has Bert stand outside the apartment, the skit where Ernie decorated the apartment for the viewer, and the skit where Bertplayed a Follow the Arrows game. For The Count's Castle, the clips would be The Song of the Count, the skit where The Count hired Ernie to answer his phone, and the skit where The Count's sheep go on strike. For Elmo's World, the clips would be the Sesame Street News skit where Elmo invented the reporter game, In Your Imagination, and Elmo's Song.

    Each game and mini-game would have instrmental versions of classic Sesame Street music. The Sesame Street board would play the Sesame Street theme, Sing, The People in your Neighborhood, and What's the Name of That Song?, the Ernie and Bert's apartment board would play One and One Make Two, Rubber Duckie, Doin' the Pigeon, Everybody Wash, and Dance Myself to Sleep. The Count's Castle board would play The Song of the Count, The Batty Bat, Count Up to Nine, and The First Day of School, along with the usual music heard in many Count sketches. The Elmo's World board would play the Elmo's World theme, plus the kazoo music heard after Elmo announces what he is thinking about, and Elmo's World-style versions of Sesame Street, Rubber Duckie, C is for Cookie, Monster in the Mirror, and Somebody Come and Play.

    I'll list what songs play during the mini-games later.
