During the third semester at the IT University I had a course on experimental game play, where we were to design and implement games based around different design challenges. My areas of involvement included design and quality assurance, as well as doing research for Monkeat 3’s political topics.
Monkeat 3 – Presidential Deb’Ape ’08 is a debating game with characters based on the candidates of the 2008 US presidential election. The goal of the game is to promote awareness of the candidate’s different political views and standpoints. It is a two player game. The design challenge was to: “design and implement a persuasive game on a ‘serious’ topic”.
