So for whatever reason I recently went on a Youtube binge watching a ton of videos on game design and artistic design. Based on the videos I saw I feel motivated to mix things up a little and try something more creative. There are a ton of point and click adventure games out there but what I have planned is a bit more personal. I am prototyping the idea of turning my own day-to-day experiences into a point and click.
For this game I am also adding music which a lot of my previous projects have been missing, and all the images for the game were taken with my android phone. Music plays a much bigger role in this game because there aren’t really any “game mechanics”. The game mechanic is the experience and how well it draws the play in. Everything I have now has been thrown together quickly just to get a feel for the gameplay, and I’d have to say I like what the prototype has had to offer so far. The images are a bit blurry but linking image to image through an option list of activities is a lot of fun and has opened more of my creative side than any other project so far.
So I will keep with this for a while and see where it takes me!
