This game design document was created by Charles Palmer, Jenica Jones, Cameron Spurlock and me as part of the LTMS 531: Designing Serious Games & Simulations course in the Learning Technologies Master of Science (LTMS) program at Harrisburg University (http://www.harrisburgu.edu/learningtechnologies). The course is in the Serious Games & Simulation concentration in the LTMS degree.
The students and the professors worked on the project together as a way to further explore and practice game design concepts introduced in class and through readings. The practice game design also supported the development of skills that students applied to their own game design projects.
We partnered with IBM to establish the game concept and communicated with IBM representatives throughout the semester to receive feedback and discuss game design strategies.
