There has been a new team project undergoing at the University of the west of Scotland (UWS) / (ofof).
It has been undergoing for the last few weeks but only recently has it being in proper development.
This time we will be making a game rather than just designing the document for a game.
The choices we came up with were simple and they had to be as we only have 10 weeks to do this in.
The choices from the brief were to either do a report or make a game. Its pretty obvious that a lecture / lab full of Game development / Game technology students were going to pick. Well if ye didn’t pick a game/software your really not in the right business.
Like I said we made the decision to make a game. The choices in which followed by that were to make a 2D game and something a little different and the best choice was to make a 2D Top-down view of a turret defence game.
I had been chosen to do the graphics and designs of the games assets like the sprites of the bugs,turrets and the games user interface (GUI) as well as the logo.
I then went about throwing together a quick game design document to get the ideas rolling… Game names , themes, enemy’s , mechanics and things of that nature. It looks ugly but its still good to get things started .
Out of the ideas the team voted for Bugs/Insects to be the enemy and what turrets we would like in the game. The Name BUGINATOR seemed fitting and that’s what were rolling with!.
To begin with our initial idea is that there will be 3 enemeys and 4 turrets. And the enemy’s will attack in waves. This may tweak as things go on but its what our initial game will have.
The game will be made with ( Construct 2 ) by our programmers of Game Tech (Christian + Sean) , and the sounds by another Game Dev student (Jordan) under the banner of Nevrax.
We also plan to put Buginator to Facebook !
The next blog I will show off what enemeys and turrets I have came up with.
Thanks for reading .
