Studio Final Project Pitch

  1. 1. Immersive Web Games:Movin’ on up and out of the Flash ghetto<br />J.L. Laquinte<br />
  2. 2. What this project is.<br />My project is to create a digital narrative in the form of a game.<br />This 2D action and adventure game will focus on recreating the immersive experience we get from console games (Nintendo, Playstation, etc..)<br />I would like to challenge the negative criticisms of games made in Flash and address the question of whether Flash games can provide a fully immersive narrative experience in the same way a console game can.<br />
  3. 3. What is a “Flash Game”<br />What do we think of when someone says Flash Game?<br />
  4. 4. “Flash Game”<br />‘Robot Wants Kitty’ by Hamumu Software<br />
  5. 5. “Flash Game”<br />‘ImmorTall’ by madpixelante<br />
  6. 6. “Flash Game”<br />‘Heli Attack 3’ by Square Circle Co.<br />
  7. 7. “Flash Games”<br />While many of these are enjoyable games the player is also being presented with stimuli like webpage ads that take them out of the game experience<br />
  8. 8. Other Mentions<br />Even though they have good games making game number 25,652 isn’t an aspiration for me.<br />
  9. 9. Is “Flash Game” a dirty word?<br />‘Flash Love Letter’ – Danc<br /><br />
  10. 10. Is “Flash Game” a dirty word?<br />Commentor on game developer Richard Davey’s blog<br /><br />
  11. 11. Questions that keep me up at night<br />If console games aren’t at a point where they are largely considered art, where does that put people who make web games?<br />Are web games advancing the field of gaming and executing the idea of meaningful play?<br />
  12. 12. Lets make Flash Games<br />- I’ve started a digital narrative created in Flash that is in Alpha Mode. It’s being programmed in Actionscript 3 and it uses the Flixel Framework.<br /><ul><li>The audience will be primarily gamers, people who enjoy narrative driven games, or people who just enjoy digital narrative.
  13. 13. The genre is fantasy/adventure. The main theme of the story is pride and betrayal.
  14. 14. For my final I will produce the first 30 minutes to 1 hour of gameplay.</li></li></ul><li>Lets make Flash Games<br />What will differentiate this from other flash games?<br /><ul><li>I plan to employ techniques to move away from the common experience of web games surrounded by ads.
  15. 15. The final product will take multiple hours of playtime to complete.</li></ul>-Through the time it takes to play the game and proper use of story telling I am hoping to generate a cathartic response from the gameplay.<br />
