Collaboration with Games

On Wednesday we got the opportunity to sit in on a Games Studio 1 class. In the class we looked at choice vs chance, different types of choices and different types of information. It was extremely interesting as I have been interested in games and game design for quite some time.

In addition to this we were given the option to collaborate with a team to make a game based around the “Turned Based Citizen” brief. I jumped at this chance and have been placed in a very good team with Shaun, Ben L and Harley. At the moment we already have a basic concept for the game, although we still need to flesh it out in order to pitch it on Tuesday.

My role within the group will mainly be art direction and animation. We have very different learning outcomes so I will be able to hit a lot of mine without taking any away from them.

I will be doing the following things:

  • Art direction, colour palettes and character concepts
  • Some character and environment modelling
  • Unwrapping
  • Texturing
  • Looping and transitioning character animation
    • Walk cycles
    • Action cycles
    • Idle animations

    In the end, have you done many of those tasks that are listed here as things you will do for the games projects?
