  1. 1. By: Ylva Sundström ylva@xox.se
  2. 2. Introduction to gamedesign • I didnt know what to expect from this course before I started it, but this is, in short terms, what I feel I have learned: • The most important thing I learned taking this course was the many different ways there are to look at games. I feel more able to see differences. • I belive I have a deeper understanding now about how a game are built up and what to think about when analysing them.
  3. 3. Heroes of Might and Magic III • I chose to analyse the game Heroes of Might and Magic III, and the subject I picked was: “Understanding rules and narrative”
  4. 4. The Game Heroes of Might and Magic is a strategy game from 1999. It is made by New World Computing and the 3DO company. • In the game you are supposed to win against other fictional heroes by taking all their castles and kill all their armies. • You play either alone or in multiplayer mode. • There are six different types of castles to chose between, all with different looks and different creatures.
  5. 5. • Here is some pictures from the game.
  6. 6. The previous was a scene from one of the castles, and this one is from a successful battle .
  7. 7. Heroes of Might and Magic are supposed to be a kind of popular game if you read a little bit about it. And it was interesting to test my own oppinion by analysing the game deeper.
  8. 8. • The subject I used to pick the game appart was rules and narratives. I read about how rules work and what they are. I also tried to understand the exact meaning of narratives, how it effects the game and the potential problems. • I realized that there are a lot of unneccesary and really enoying narratives in my game. • Also that there needs to be a good balance in the rules so that the game is neather to hard nor to easy. • And, to be able to do all this, the creator can never forget who the game are made for and that it is made to be played by, hopefuly, many people. The creator needs to be open for new ideas to make a game good and has to test it on many types of people and in many stages of the making.
  9. 9. As I finished writing my analyse it came to think about that I really used to like playing Heroes of Might and Magic III (I still do.. ) But now I think that it is a little bit to big, to many opitions with the same outcome. Though it is entertaining to play HOMM, now I see the mistakes in the gamedesign more clearly.
  10. 10. Well, hope you all found it interesting to read and that your own game was fun to play and analyse! / Ylva Sundström
