After the industry panel, Only 5 Game project left. Unfortunately My project(out of box) doesn’t get in the final. So we have to join a game team which game is still alive.
The survived five games are Crash city, B.E.S.T, 360 over-sense, Fire fighter and ochre.
The game team I finally joined is the game Fire-fighter which gameplay based on the sound. The core mechanic is player need to listen to the sound to locate the people who trapped in the fired building and help them get out.
The reason I choose this team is because I have done the sound based game before. I am kind familiar with this kind of game design.
The week after the GDC. Our Team have a meeting. We talk about the direction we want to go in the future.
The first thing we make sure is that we want to transfer this game in to a entertainment game. Not Serious game any more. And then, The background change to the Colombia era. And the main character is a child soilder which want to be freedom.Player need to control the kid to escape the army and avoid being detected by the enemy solider. It’s a Anti-war theme stealth game. And We think there are a lot of game we can learn design from it. Such as Thief, Metal gear solid, Dishonored and the Last of us.
A good start. Next week’s work for me is do some concept art for the game.
The second week after the GDC is the spring break.
I bought the UNO Game in the Smith’s market and enjoy it with my roommates at home.
Uno is a very popular card party game worldwide. It’s really really easy for everyone because of the simple rules. And also it’s a 2-10 players game. So more people can join the game. We really have fun with it.
What a good game!
what a nice week!
Do what you want to do. Don’t forget who you are and your original dream. Follow your heart.
Never give up.
The designer of the game “That dragon, cancer”, who made a game in order to memorial his son (passed away). The things I learned from him is the Game media is a good way to express yourself.
The greatest thing is I meet so many indie game developer this time. The developers of the indie game “Gemini”. These guys are all come from china. They are starting their own studio in NYC. It’s very glad to meet them and talk with them. After I meet them I found that I belong to them.
The only company I talk about is that game company. They are hiring audio designer right now, and also if someone want to try some other position, you can recommend yourself.
Honestly to say, I don’t care the job. I want to do the indie stuff. I want to spend one or two years to be solo.
Don’t waste your time if you guys know what exactly you want.
