GAME DESIGN DOCUMENT
A casual puzzle game for everyone. Its purpose is to make people think about manipulating the environment of a level in different ways to form different paths to victory.
Different paths to victory
Perhaps other "flash game" websites
There is no intentionally designed storyline. Make of it what you will.
There are no intentionally created characters.
This is the real meat of the project. Everything hinges on how intuitive levels are to complete. The environment is one of simplicity, in order to emphasize a puzzle's solvability.
Primary mechanic of tapping with finger/clicking with mouse. In doing so, the player manipulates the visibility of objects in the scene so that they can reach the goal.
Basic shapes and colors. Stark contrast between background and foreground. Outlines.
Sound and Music
Slow and drawn-out. Calming. Make the player feel as if they don't need to rush to complete the level.
User Interface, Game Controls
Clickable/Tappable UI - buttons on the edges of the screen. Simple one-sentence tutorial at the beginning of the game.
Currently no plans to include features that help accessibility.
Those seeking a handheld distraction while commuting; those seeking a small challenge or mental encouragement in the middle of a boring day.
