Hawkhead Bay - Five Minute Map
Friday five minute maps are fairly self explanatory, though sometimes they don’t happen on Friday, and sometimes they take a little more than five minutes. If you make a five minute map please send me a message or tweet me as I’d love to see other people’s attempts.
This map is inspired by last weeks Friday game design challenge, Mega Axe. It is a quiet Celtic fishing village hidden in a wooded bay, where the main character’s adventure first starts.
Last week’s Friday game design challenge, which was to design a game called Mega Axe! What a great name :)
I had some disparate ideas that I could have made more cohesive but I still like the style and silliness of each of the axes.
This week’s Friday game design challenge was on the theme of Cyberspace!
Asgard Firewall is a game about allowing or denying traffic to the user computers based on its keywords, and fighting the viruses that threaten to destroy you!
The first Friday Design Challenge we came up with, in the kitchen while drinking tea.
The challenge is to come up with an awesome name for a game first, then design the game.
This one was Uppercut Baker, which turned into Uppercut Pizza, a game about keeping pizza dough up in the air, akin to those plates spinning on sticks, except you do it with awesome uppercuts!
The idea for this was made up by three of us together, but I made the silly art.
Last week’s Friday Design Challenge
At work we have started doing a challenge to design a game based around a title, last week’s title was Royal Janitor: The Resistance
Its a great fun thing to do, and my work mates also come up with some great one-page pitches!
