- Quick brainstorming
In a game jam, we must do a small and efficient concept. We chose to make a scoring game, to give him a good life time. It was an unexpected and unusual theme, we had to give our game pitch 2 hours after the revelation of the theme.
- Level Design
Designing a city with a carefully placement of props to allow the player to score and win. If there is to much target, the game is too easy. At the opposite, the game is too hard.
- Game Balancing
How many score did the target give to the player, the score multiplier system...
- Unity C#
Coding the FPS controller, the toy gun, some AI and score system.
