Activity 3: Gameplay & Player Stories

The core game play for our games will be focused on conversations with characters in the game world and making hard decisions where someone will lose out possibly yourself if you think it’s for the greater good. The game will give you decisions where you have to either help someone by sacrificing something of your or ignoring them to keep that small benefit you have. The game will push the player to make difficult moral decisions however if the player sacrifices themselves too much or ignores all others there will be consequences.

10 player stories

Sally is a girl who is just entering adulthood and therefor has a lot to discover about living on her own making hard life choices etc. Because of the focus on self-discovery we wanted to make games that make the player choose between many different moral choices small and large, these decisions are what will captivate Sally and many players like her.

Story 1 – this story focuses on the sacrifice of one’s self in order to help someone less fortunate than you, this story will interest Sally because she will have to question herself “is helping someone worth giving up my money when I don’t know them”?

Story 6 – This is similar to the last story in the way that it makes Sally question herself, if she wants to help the sick she needs the money which she can only get from doing something morally the opposite or she could take the money she earns from helping the enemy and use it for herself.

Story 10 – focused on money again Sally will need to question her morals and whether they are worth giving up on in order for her own survival.

All three of these stories are focused on questioning your own morals as we have identified Sally as someone who is entering a new stage of her life she will have to make these decisions as well as understand her own morals and what really worth holding onto and knowing when to let go of something for the greater good.
