Interesting to here your working on a game. The problem is
while you have given us an idea of the plot and setting
here, you've not given us any idea of what sort of gameplay
your thinking of.
The plot and description, kidnapped girl, rescue mission,
evil wizard, haunted mantion could apply equally to a side
scroller like Q9, a first person action game, a puzle game
like chillingham or even an interactive fiction text
adventure (many of the old infocom games had similar plots),
a set of arcade games where you progress through different
games in different environments, space in vaders bat
shooting in the forest, ghost busting in a cave with bopit
commands, timed run past bursts of lava etc, this is
afterall how Hunter works.
I'm afraid unless you give us an idea of what type! of game
your planning on creating, not merely it's story line, it's
a litle hard to give suggestions.
In fact the only suggestion i might make is that kidnapped
girl plots are a litle sterriotypical. This is afterall the
age of Princess Laya, LAra croft, Zena warrior princess,
Samas from the Metroid series and probably a good few more
examples that I could think of if I had more time.
Beware the Grue!
