  3. 3.  Couch-style gaming geared towards arcade players ages 13-35. Fast-paced rounds = arcade game (<5 mins) Competitive multi-player, pick-up & play gameplay Much like Mario Party, Super Smash Bros. in couch gaming aspect Appeals to gamers who like (across hardcore & casual market): ◦ Puzzles ◦ Strategy games ◦ Stealth games ◦ Arcade games ◦ Competitive games (pvp) Very accessible due to arcade-style game (sold via XBLA, Steam, PSN, etc) High replay-ability due to players creating their own levels/games

  6. 6.  Third person gameplay focuses around Thief Body created with low poly count in mind. ◦ Modeled in order to deform properly when animated Character has backpack which powers phase- shifting ◦ Activated by display on the left armband Focus for character is in base animation for navigating the levels: ◦ Run ◦ Walk ◦ Phase shift ◦ slide
  7. 7.  Techno/Hi-tech/Furturistic feel Ambient techno/mechanical background music ◦ See demo for example Sound FX will be futuristic: ◦ Turret moving/firing ◦ Camera activation ◦ Laser activation ◦ Wall toggles ◦ Phase Shifting This fits with the overall artistic design of the game and the main story/theme
