Hi everybody, today i’m presenting to you a prototype that I’ve been working on for the past week during the rapid prototyping phase of my course.
So the brief for the rapid prototype meant that i had to make a game that was entirely keyboard operated and could only use 4 color’s, it sounded challenge at the start but it was actually very easy to be honest.
The first problem that i had though was designing an economy for my prototype game (pictured below) basically i modeled my prototype of the movie The Matrix but redesigned it to work as it’s own title, i’ll explain a little as to how the diagram works now.
– People produce power.
– power runs to the factory and nursery.
– the factory produces nursery robots which along with the factory produce more people.
– and every now and then the resistance steal humans.
So from that i went in to Photoshop and designed with an idea of what i wanted the game to look like and seeing as how you’re going to be playing as a robot it sort of made sense to not have any visuals (why would a robot need visuals?),anyway this is the design that i came up with.
As you can see from the design I’ve tried to design the game to look like an old DOS computer as i wanted it to have that retro feel.
And finally here is what i’m up to with the actual game, I’ve actually finished the prototype and still have a week left before the next brief so i’m going to get a week to spend polishing my game and optimizing the script, anyway here’s the current version of my game, hope you enjoy!
