  1. 1. 1 Qualification Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production – Games Design Y1 Unit number and title L3 Unit 70 – Game Engines Start date Tuesday 2nd September, 2014 Deadline Thursday 18th December, 2014 Assessor name Jordan Eastwood & Iain Goodyear Assignment title Unit 70 IG /JE1 – INDUSTRY ANALYSIS AND DESIGN BRIEF The purpose of this assignment is to: Unit 70 LO1: Understand the purposes of game engines. Unit 70 LO2: Understand the functions of components of game engines. Unit 70 LO3: Be able to use a 2D game engine following industry practice. Unit 70 LO4: Be able to use a 3D game engine following industry practice. Scenario Analysing the Industry is important to create a basis of thought and development, Analysing the technology is a tool to that development, a bridge to help unleash and support creativity and to give a Games Designer the freedom to express their imagination. You have started up your own Game Development Studio and your new product has sparked interest across the industry. You will formally announce your company name and game you are working on with multiple major publishers. You will have to pitch your understanding of Game Engines alongside this. Publishers will expect an in depth written analysis report on your process in research for game engines, including their purposes and functionality via Industry Terminology. In addition to this, they will ask to view your game prototypes produced in Game Maker and Unity. Publishers have also requested the development workflows to analyse that you can develop a solid game prototype. This will have to include industry standard techniques and terminology before they can give you the funding for your product. They will ask you to look into the areas of:  Self-Analysis  Development theory and application  Technology Analysis and work plans They also want you to develop a new prototype using the Unity 3D Engine while sticking to the same design process as the 2D engine. This should also include a thorough 3D workflow and design plan to support your prototype when presented to one of the publishers.
  2. 2. 2 Tasks Grading Criteria Mapping Task 1 You must produce a report to show case your process of thought on how you came up with the engine for your product; this includes looking at the purpose of game engines, functionality of game engines supported with industry terminology, analysis and research. When evidence is produced it must be uploaded to your blog in the task 1 section. The title of this blog post is: The Purposes and Functions of components of Game Engines. Unit 70 P1/M1/D1 Unit 70 P2/M2/D2 Task 2 This task must include an understanding and playable 2D level to industry standards using the Game Maker engine. Evidence for this task should also be accompanied by an extensive 2D workflow that showcases the ability to adhere and develop to industry level standards. You will need to produce a short desktop captured video to evidence your 2D game in play. When evidence is produced it must be uploaded to your blog in the task 2 section. The title of this blog post is: Using a 2D Game Engine. Unit 70 P3/M3/D3 Task 3 This Task must include an understanding and playable 3D level to industry standards using the Unity 3D engine but should also be accompanied by an extensive 3D workflow that showcases the ability to adhere and develop to industry level standards. You will need to produce a short desktop captured video to evidence your 2D game in play. When evidence is produced it must be uploaded to your blog in the task 3 section. The title of this blog post is: Using a 3D Game Engine.
