Task 1: Game Project Plan. Deadline: September 11.
Specify the game project that you intend to develop and the game technology you intend to use. Describe your core game-play focus, trying to illustrate what kind of game you are developing for feedback. A starting point in your search for game tech. may be this list. Choosing wisely will save you time and effort. You must use a game-dedicated tech. or a media framwork + physics framework.
Describe your plan for game progression and in-game tutoring plan. What are your current thoughts on these subjects for your project. Progression is how the game evolves and in-game tutoring is how the game teaches the players during play. A very good explanation of this is in the sequelitis videos.Make sure you understand these concepts, your final hand-in must have addressed both these issues ikn a non-trivial manner.Deliverable: Submit your report to the BOX invite (dropbox alterantive) you'll recieve to your student email.
