GameMarker Final Project
Gamemakers Unit Final Project – 200 POINTS
Due Date: Monday, December 5th, 2016
During the week of December 5th, we will designate two to three class periods as “GAME DAYS.” You must have completed (by Monday, Dec. 5th) a finished, playable version of your game.
Remember your choices:
Choice #1: Your group must create an original game from the ground up. By that, I mean that you will create all original pieces, provide the rules, and test the game yourself to ensure that the game play is successful and that you can play the game to completion. You should strive towards creating a game that is appropriate for class and one that can actually be played by your fellow students. We want to play these games!
Choice #2: You can also choose to modify an existing game. For instance, in high school my friends and I combined “tennis” and “volleyball” to create “V-Tenny”. There was an entirely new set of rules and the game play was a new experience. Make sure that your modification is changing the game significantly. For instance, if you took Monopoly and added some new pieces or designed your own money…this would not be acceptable.
Keep in mind: You must choose to create a game that can be played in class. Also, keep in mind that we will need to play your game multiple times, so if you have items like trivia questions or elements that could “run out” …you need to provide for as many players as possible.
You can: Use pieces from other games to help create yours. For instance, you can use a board or pieces from another game…however you should put original graphics wherever you can.
Your game must:
Gamemaker Project: Persuasive Presentations – Commercials
100 points – Each group must be ready to perform or present their commercials on Wednesday, November 30th.
Keep in mind that this presentation of your game should be crafted like a commercial that you would see on television. This is not a time to go into specifics about how your game works, meaning explaining all of the rules. If you think about it, most commercials for games and toys do not waste too much time with these details. Usually commercials stress how much fun can be had with the game and what kind of people will enjoy it. The goal to remember is that you have this limited time to sell your game to your audience. You need to make it sound like the best game ever! You will get a chance to further explain your game (rules & instructions) to the class at the start of the Game Days. Instead, these commercial presentations should be creative, quick, informative and entertaining.
These commercials will STRICT minimum time constraints. Each commercial must be at least 60 seconds long but CAN NOT EXCEED 90 seconds. Coming in under this time will cause you to lose a considerable amount of points, as will going over the allotted time.
Your commercial must:
