When I realized I was going to be working on my senior project, got to work on a few things I knew I was going to need. A game idea, documentation templates, and a plan.
Before the semester even began, I was excited and ready to go.
I took advantage of new features available through Google Drive, including the app “Gantter.”
Fun with charts aside, I quickly developed a game concept. Because of the rich history I have been developing with my sandsea setting, I chose it as the setting for my senior project game. The title of the game is “Sandsea: Shadow of Umbri.” It chronicles the journey of an escaped slave as he fights his way out of an oppressive and militaristic country.
For obvious reasons, it became apparent that very few of my classmates were as prepared as I was to get to work. I’ve already penciled down the basic mechanics of the game. Now, it’s time to fill my design document templates.
