'K2 : The Climb' is a serious game made as a collection of different types of mini-games. The game teaches the players on the hazards and facts about mount K2 specific situations, while also teaching about mountaineering in general.
The project was made as a part of an 'intensive week' session and has been completed in 1 week in our University.
The game itself is a combination of number of mini-games (6 to be precise), and all of the mini-games are crafted around different categories essential for mountaineering. The purpose of the game is to promote mountaineer safety.
Before anything we kicked off our production of the project by performing target research on different types of mountains and mountaineering in general. Hand-in-hand we also worked on the initial design of the game alongside our research. But due to the scope of the research itself, our intended design went through many changes over the course of development of the project.
Reaching a staple point between the time-limit of the project and the research done, we began cutting down content from the project to make it better presentable, and better polished.
Though at the end while I do agree that our initial design was not implemented, and it kept changing day-by-day, but then again, we as a team had a unified vision no matter in which ever direction it changed to. We learned to adapt in many different ways in short development time of the project.
I was responsible for the research performed and also I worked on the game design and balancing alongside the research.
WHAT WENT RIGHT?
All of us maintained a unified vision throughout the development process of the game.
Intensive research was done on K2 and all information required for getting basics on mountaineering.
Efficient time management between different team members was maintained for the betterment of the project.
Focused on delivering a polished prototype.
WHAT TO IMPROVE?
No sound assets were implemented into the game.
