60 hours

Game Designer (Systems Design)

Team of 7 People

Description:

Build Your Own Game (BYOG) is a game development sprint in which game developers get together, team up and make games. BYOG will last 60 hours in which teams will do focused game development and build prototypes (aka proof of concepts) to showcase and pitch game ideas around the themes of the sprint.

The final themes for the sprint were: Death, Stealth, Gods.

We had to come up with Game Concept on the above themes.

Game Info:-

Overthrown is a 3D Isometric, Turn Based game that takes place within the Greek Mythos and its gods.

Gameplay:

Hades, as the God of the Underworld, creates a variety of traps and monsters in his perfect dungeon to stop and prevent the player from reaching him.

The player takes control of Thanatos, who enters the Underworld, and makes his way to the end of the dungeon.

He must manage his Godly energy, for if he runs out of it, he will be unable to make any actions, which can mean a loss since it disables him from taking any action. Not only that, when a monster dies, it releases energy which can be absorbed by the gods.

Thanatos, in addition can change himself into a non-living form of death, becoming a ghost, in order to navigate through certain traps.

Responsibility:

  • Game Design (Turn based Systems Design, Score System, Combat System design).
  • Game Balancing.
