Following on from Monday’s announcement, it’s time to kick off a new Question of the Month series for 2019 which will see the community come together in a virtual development studio. Every month we’ll be asking brave volunteers to come forward and share their ideas for a single element of a title so they can be blended together at the end of the year to create The Ultimate Video Game. Read on to find out more and how you can take part.
The development team so far:
The game so far:
This month’s game element:
January’s game element is: setting and themes.
Your ideas this month should be focused on the world that The Ultimate Video Game is going to take place in. It could be a huge, sprawling fantasy landscape full of imaginative wildlife; a gritty urban slum where everything is grey and hard; a garden in your own home town where plenty of adventures could take place. Or perhaps even a black rectangle where nothing but different-shaped blocks exist!
If your setting doesn’t take much describing, feel free to also tell us about the themes you’d like to explore. Will you look at love, friendship, cultural or social issues? The nature of gaming itself? Or do you just want The Ultimate Video Game to be something fun? The only thing we ask is that you bear in mind the first point in the following section and stay focused on January’s element.
Good luck to everybody who’d like to take part this month. We’re looking forward to hearing your ideas for The Ultimate Video Game!
