Week three started off with myself mulling over the theme for an app jam that we are part of this week. The goal is to stretch myself and see what I can put together in a 40 hour period. The theme is Guide – Opponent – Restricted. I feel a bit nervous at first but got started after listing to videos from Martin Cooke and Michael Cook. They offered some good advice for prototyping my project. I will use some paper style prototyping with photoshop and try and code wise, get the world environment working.
I have thought about the theme and looked at it using synonyms.
Opponent – resister corrival rival contestant competitor
Restricted – limits limited segregated authorized
I also a few ideas from games like Flower, Sky and The Pack. Exploring opened play and how the game character interacts with the game environment. So far, about 10+ hours in just playing with different ideas.
I have also been looking to how cloud anchors work and have put a link below for catch a quick overview of what it entails.
