Decisions, Decisions

This week was essentially a brainstorming session to decide what we would make for the semester. We didn't have any restrictions aside from it needed to work on a mobile device. We perused current popular mobile games as well as discussed what sort of mobile games we had all played in the past. We came up with two final ideas:

The first is a fusion of some of the team member's old favourite time wasters. These were Shopping Cart Hero and Johnny Crash Does Texas. The game concept is that you shoot a chicken (and possibly other animals) out of a cannon and use your finite energy to flap your wings and keep yourself aloft while avoiding obstacles. We temporarily named this Fowl Flying.

The second idea is a puzzle game where you play as a hamster in a ball. You can rotate the world to view it from different angles as well as flip it to change the gravity. You can also manipulate and roll the ball itself. This was mainly inspired by puzzle game Monument Valley. We temporarily called this one They See Me Ballin'.

Once we had decided on the games, the artists took a little time to throw together some mood/inspiration boards so we could get a visual feel of each game.

We also decided on a team name, Pigs in Blankets for no other reason than they're both delicious and cute.

Until next week!
