Summary

Non graphical management sim game

Description
TL;DR Browser based management sim game. Open to ideas but could do bee colony survival I want to build some sort of non graphical management sim game, I'm open to ideas, but here is one potential: Bee colony survival and growth. Starting with the Queen bee and around 1k worker bees, build a hive and grow the colony. Challenges * the aim is to stay alive and build large and healthy colonies * temperature of the nest needs to be around 30 degrees C for eggs to hatch, this means a certain number of bees need to stay inside * bees need food and water * searcher bees will notify food and water sources, player can make decision on how many forager bees go and collect from those places. * allocate jobs to bees (see below) Jobs can be allocated, here are some examples of worker bee jobs: * protection (from things like wasps) * attending the Queen (she needs to be clean and healthy) * searching (food and water) * foraging - food - water * nursary (eggs and larvae need tending to) * mortuary (dead bees need removing) * cleaning * honeycomb building I like this idea because although it won't be totally accurate to nature, (in reality the worker bees jobs are alocated based on their age) it can teach a lot about bees and maybe the challenges they face

    Can the bees then become "sentient" and start eliminating humans in their area and enslaving them to tend to grow more gardens etc. then they can use the slaves to kill neighbouring humans etc. That would be nice also.

    @Ju5tJ3N that's fine, I'll probably start this without help, people seem to be upvoting so I'll give it a crack at some point

    I had something in mind that can be similar to this. I'm interested in how this evolves but I don't have time now.

    Also if it's non graphical, giving it some ASCII love would be cool.
