Hero Quest

Hero Quest, the 1989 fantasy board game from Milton Bradley, had been an obsession of mine ever since the middle of the nineties. So at one point I had to play with the rules and see what I could do to tweak them, which resulted in a slightly more complex (and largely unfinished) rules addendum, that added more interesting choices to the combat.

Monkeat 3 – Presidential Deb’Ape ’08

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”.

Monkeat

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, although I wasn’t in from the beginning on Monkeat.

Monkeat is a game about a man that slowly turns into a monkey while eating bananas that are catched in the air with the mouth. The design challenge was to: “design and implement a game playable with one button”.
