- Brief Description
In the search and rescue game, the player has the option to switch between a search and rescue officer and a tacker dog. The officer and the dog both have different sets of skills that help them to find missing people in the wild. The goal of the game is find the missing person before time runs out and they are lost forever. Each game is different, so the player must adapt to their surroundings and use the correct player to fit the situation to find the person before the time runs out.

As it stands right now, there are a lot of elements that need to talk together to create a cohesive game. For the prototype, it would stand to reason that only one character will be fully functional, so that core game play elements can be used. As a team, we will have to decide if we want to create the man or dog for the prototype.
