Fall 2009 -- First Game Blogs

The Fall 2009 class size is a bit smaller, and we have five groups of three students each for the first games. Students were allowed to choose between a pizza box game or a grid game. Here are links to their team blogs as they develop their first game concepts:
  • Flying Toppings
    A skill based pizza-box game that resembles shuffle-board with pepperoni and sausage.

  • RU Rah Rah
    A game for Rutgers freshmen, who have to make their way to orientations on all four campuses to complete the game.

  • Rainbow Five
    A strategy game like "Connect Four" but you have to get five different colors in a row to win.

  • Quest for Dominance
    Four teams of pirates compete to find the treasure. Still in development (hence the non-pirate title).

  • Field Goal Frenzy
    A flick football game with a dose of strategy.
