As we continue to develop games for the Nook Color, we’ve been hard at work bringing new experiences and new ways to play games. The following images will show you a teaser of what is to come from one of the teams at Toy Studio. What makes this game really cool is that we originally tested the concept by creating a very simple prototype with some odds and ends we had around the office.
These random arrows are part of a new game we are working on. It was a test that was passed around the office and we all got to get a bit of flavor of the game even before we got to test it on a Nook Color.
Many don’t realize that it is possible to test video game design concepts without ever writing a single line of code. It is a great way to see if something is fun or if there needs to be revisions. With a little bit of imagination, a trial run with a pen and a sheet of paper can be a pretty good indication if you are on the right track or not.
The images you see here are from the super early stages of a game that will be released in the near future on the Nook Color App Store. The game looks entirely different now than these beginning stages, of course, but the finished game will make use of arrows. Now that the game is nearing completion, we were able to take a few Nook Colors to a local coffee shop and let some people play of the game with all the fancy (and downright stunning) graphics.
We’re really excited about this game and can’t wait to show you more about it soon!
