CISC 226: Game Design


School of Computing • Queen's University • Winter 2017

Final Submission

Your final submission will consist of three parts.

  • An executable version of your game
  • A PDF version of your poster
  • A narrated gameplay video

Executable Version of Your Game

Create a build of your game for the Macintosh. To build in Unity, select "File->Build Settings". Under target platform, select "Mac OS X". Then click the "Build" button.

If it is not obvious how to play (e.g., the player needs to know keyboard shortcuts), provide a very brief document with instructions.

PDF of Poster

Provide a PDF form of the poster that you demonstrated at the show. Please do not upload the original PowerPoint.

Narrated Gameplay Video

Provide a video of your game including a recording of you talking over the video. The video should cover:

  • The key idea behind the game
  • The game's style and setting (e.g., platformer, puzzle game, shooter game, etc.)
  • The game's novel idea
  • Gameplay

The video should consist of actual footage from your game with audio voice-over. Aim for a length of 90 seconds to 2 minutes.

I have provided at the top of the page three examples of narrated gameplay videos. These were produced for a fourth year course, so represent the very highest end of what I would expect in CISC 226. Note in these examples how the novel idea is clearly explained and the gameplay is illustrated.

For a reminder of the technical aspects of making a video, review my instructions on how to capture and edit video. Please do not forget to compress your video using Handbrake.

Submission

Please submit your game executable, poster and video using OnQ. Submit one file to OnQ, which is a zip file with the following contents:

  • A folder named after your group. E.g., Final-KhadriMarnerMatthews.
  • Within that folder:
    • your game executable, e.g., gameName-KhadriMarnerMatthews
    • your poster, named after your group, e.g., poster-KhadriMarnerMatthews.pdf
    • your narrated video, e.g., video-KhadriMarnerMatthews.mp4

Evaluation

Before submitting, please consult the rubric attached to this assignment on OnQ to see how it will be graded.
