Week of 4/27

MakerFest projects for CDAT students are due at the end of the week.

We will give students an open work day Monday, as they will most likely not have one in other classes due to EOCT's (Milestones tests).

Starting Tuesday, you will be writing a REAL game concept that will be reviewed by HiRez Studios.  Here are the initial details:
  • Using Unity, come up with the concept for a 2D game.
  • SMITE is one of a few HiRez studios games, so keep in mind the style of the studio.  What 2D game would compliment their current work?
  • Create a backstory, a storyboard, some general concept art (or similar characters to what you will make).
  • What are the rules of play: how to win, lose, what type of social interaction?
  • Working title?
  • Form your team and brainstorm today.  Teams are limited to 4, unless you can justify a skills/work assignment for more.
  • Tomorrow (Wed.), give me your ideas so far, make sure they are in WRITING on a team-shared site or document.
  • Have your final presentation in a format that someone else can just watch/read.  Could be a video, Google Slides, your choice.  One of the game directors at HiRez will be evaluating them.  Any game could be developed, so it's not just one winner!
  • Make a case why your game is unique, interesting, and why it would get users/players.
  • Final presentation:  Friday, May 8.
