I’m sourcing some creative commons audio from ccmixter.org for my teaster. I’ve managed to find a music clip which will be pretty effective in setting the mood for my teaser. I’m going to see if it has any clips of a clock ticking that I could use. I’ve also found a website that converts text to speech, so I’m also using that to create some audio. In final cut pro...
I was just going back through my notes from the lectures, about the players being active participants in the narrative, and I realised I hadn’t really given the players a ‘character’ as such. So I went back over my plot and tried to think of a reason why these particular players have been contacted and why they should be involved in the game. Then I came up with the idea that the...
This is one of the sites I used as inspiration for my Research company website http://www.nhmrc.gov.au/ It’s very official looking, and the colour scheme is good - its very clean. Here is my mock up so far - I’ve used the clouds in the background because I want players to think this company is working for good… the clouds represent optimism I think.
Inspiration for my legislation posters that will be placed on noticeboards in the CI faculty building. I want them to have a genuine government feel so I’m using examples that I could find from government websites. I’m also looking at examples from charities.
Blog mock up
This is what I’ve done so far on my blog mock up. This is the blog of John Martin. I wanted the blog to create a feeling of what life might be like in the future time. There are some images of protesting, buildings demolished, police, etc. I used creative commons images from flickr and played around with them in photoshop to get the right look and feel. I’ve made a countdown timer...
This is my logo for the Pullman Research group. I wanted this group to look legitimate and trustworthy when players first land on their website. This is why I’ve used the colour dark blue, which is associated with reliability. I also worked in the DNA strand into the letter ‘P’ which gives it medical legitimacy.
I came up with the name of the religious extremist group by looking up words that mean to try and take over something. Usurp was one of the words I found. The meanings of this word fit perfectly into what this group is trying to achieve. I also liked that I could use a play on words, and call them the Usurpents, because the serpent is often associated with a wily, malicious person, or even the...
When I first started thinking about the theme ‘A Better World’ I started brainstorming about what would make my world better on a personal level. One particular thing that sprang to mind was music. Music is such a huge part of my life and enriches so many of my experiences, and I thought, if there were more music in the world perhaps it would be a better place. In my brainstorming I...
Sean Stewart - Lead Writer for 'The Beast'
Some interesting comments on immersion and letting the players put the pieces of the narrative together by leaving gaps on purpose. http://www.seanstewart.org/interactive/args/
