Non-Video Game Design Project - CMPS 80K
The goal of this project is to develop a game that is not a video game. By making the game not based on the computer, it places the focus of design on the rules, and how the rules affect gameplay.
This is a team-based project, so you and your team members work together, collaboratively, to develop the game and its rules.
You can develop any kind of game, so long as it does not use a computer. Some possibile categories for your game include, but are not limited to:
- Board game
- Card game
- Puzzle game
- Car trip game
- Party game
- Game played with a group of friends
- Game show
- Role playing game
- Children's game
- A "forbidden" game, like "spin the bottle"
- Drinking game
Guidelines for the project are as follows:
- The game must have a name
- The rules must be typed, and fit on no more that 2 pages (10pt or larger, multi-column is OK)
- Game elements (game pieces, boards, cards, dice, etc.) are not part of the 2 pages
- No restrictions on game media (cardboard, cinder blocks, plastic, leather, it's all OK)
- No restrictions on game genre.
- Game must be original. No minor variants on existing games.
- Game play must not involve breaking laws or campus regulations (the "Don't get your professor in trouble" rule)
See the template for details on what you need to turn in when you finish this assignment.
