Daily Design: Day 102

Daily Design is a series of game concepts devised daily through all of 2016. These are just basic concepts, designed based on three randomly generated words. Today, they are;

Moving, Incompatible and Shirt.

As such, the game I’ve designed today is…

Clothes Minded

Clothes Minded is a sidescrolling endless runner with a simple twist; the player can only bypass obstacles that are the same colour as the shirt they’re wearing.

This means that if they hit a purple barricade while wearing a purple shirt, they’ll pass through harmlessly. If they wear any other colour, though, the run will end.

The colour of their shirt can be changed at the press of a button, matching the face buttons on a(n xbox) controller, meaning yellow, red, green and blue. Pressing the corresponding face button will switch the player’s shirt colour instantly.

As the level progresses, colours will mix and match very quickly, forcing the player to adapt on the fly. There’s also jumping (RT) and sliding (LT) that need to be done regardless of shirt colour.

That’s it! Surprisingly short one today. I’ll be back tomorrow with another quick game concept. Thanks for reading!
