More Thinking, Less Coding
October 21, 2013
We are nearing the halfway mark of our final project but to be honest we haven't finalized on the game idea. We went on an excursion to the arcade and spent roughly 8 bucks each, trying out the games the arcade had to offer.
Here's a picture of Chun Mun and Viet Tien having fun playing Bishi Bashi:
Initially we wanted to emulate the game Gyro and make a multiplayer version of it. However, after further consideration, I found it inappropriate and people would get bored easily and called for a discussion with the team.
Our target application has to be:
- Multiplayer (Support up to 10 concurrent players)
- Newcomers who just joined the game should not be too disadvantaged
- Make use of a mobile devices' capabilities
The games that came to my mind that fell into this category were multiplayer First-Person shooters such as Counter Strike and Team Fortress 2. A team-based shooting game should work for us!
Here's a sneak peek at what we have for the project so far:
Looks pretty okay? I think so too. Let's see what we can come up with in the next 3 weeks. (:
