UWS Project – Imperial Crusade-map concepts /ideas

Q {-Which side of a chicken has the most feathers ?-}
A {-The outside-}.
What is the relevance to do with this blog ? None!
Now that’s over with The other weeks task was to come up with a map. This took longer as expected as there were other University actives to take care of like passing assessments ” wooohoo”
 So the process of coming up with a map was daunting as there was so much freedom my mind did what it does best under those circumstances and draws a blank while sticking out its tongue at me! “na na na na”
 I started off by looking at maps of the world and then as an Idea I though of cutting out country shapes and doing things like.
1) Sticking them upside down
2) Inverting them
3) intersecting them with each other
Placing them randomly almost creating it into an alternative earth.
You get the picture. So I then decided to search and see if there was any map creators out there and by luck there was a few.
This particular one I found was a bit rough around the edges. There was a vast amount of options and settings and by the elimination process your map came out in various and numerous sizes and shapes.
The program which I used you have to pay for so I quickly found a few suitable maps in my opinion for concepts before the trial ran out .
We as a group also had a few slight changes to the game document as it goes with certain mechanics, gameplay and exactly what countries there are and why there at war.
The original Idea was our Team were going to pick 2 countries each (6 total) and write a little about there culture and why there at war with the other.
But now we are thinking of changing  them so its like there emerging from 3 different empires which are breaking apart. This isn’t final yet as this design keeps having twists and turns each day.
I will keep you’s posted.
By the next blog I will have selected 1 map and Named it and show off the 3 Old empires and will also link them into a small story line so it kind of makes sense .. “I hope”
-There after that I take the maps further into detail showing provinces , Key Point Locations and areas of trade.
-Also a small description on units and explain there differences – I.E why is a guy with a Katana better than a guy with a bread knife .
These are the main goals for the next blog , maybe the next two blogs as the document is getting typed , shortened , expanded and re-typed every other day so its hard keeping up and quite fatiguing.
As always thanks for reading , like , share , comment , subscribe and don’t hesitate by dropping an email if any idea you like or don’t like or even have , all is welcome…
Thanks for reading Guys ! Kind Regards Ricky

DNA Games Studios UK -original name – reflection on university

Alrite Amigos (AA)


A great start from me and the guys Ryan Anderson and Mark De Folco-McGuire (more like De fecto).

Our enthusiasm and combined whit got us off to a flyer !!

With the ideas pouring in to what our game could be . Like a big  melting pot … typically of cheese….. but hey I like cheese..


The great thing about My team is wee already know what our roles will be when coming up with our concept as wee all know our strengths and weaknesses , wait no  I mean lesser strengths ! Boom man-chat !!


So its already taking shape with crazy yet rock-face beautiful ideas flowing, 

but that will be finalised in my next blog on our UWS project for DNA Games. 


Also the idea of DNA Games which I supplied seemed fitting and original . What is  your thoughts on the team / company name ? .


also a little moment of reflection … I had to do some work with sound waves and involved such things as drawing them , always a buzz … and doing equations and all I could think of is ….. I actually  miss physics it is Awesome or as I say WOWSOME .


Another was a small chat via lecturer and class .. simple he asked what music do you love which inspires you ? .. loads of Elvis and Hendricks flying about with Mozart(wolfy)  etc. .. me just prior to leaving the car Biggie smalls was playing its all i could think of ha !
