Daily Design: Day 262
Daily Design is a series of game concepts devised daily through all of 2016. These are just basic concepts, designed based on randomly generated words. Today, they are;
Toss, Badge and Farewell.
As such, the game I’ve designed today is…
Early Retirement is a small game designed for tablets or mobiles. It’s about cops who are retiring for being off the rails, and they’re handing in their gun and badge.
Or they would be, if they weren’t so badass. Instead, they throw their gun and badge on the desk and walk out, off to dispense justice without the help of the law. Then the next cop will come in and do the same.
The player takes control of these wayward cops and attempt to throw their guns and badges on the chief’s desk. This is done by swiping upwards from the phone, trying to land the badge and gun in specific areas to increase their score. For example, landing a gun inside the chief’s glass will score extra points.
The player does this until they miss a throw, which results in a game over. Players attempt to build a high score through a combination of trick shots and “survival” by making sure no throws miss.
That’s it! Busy day, so it’s a very short one. I’ll be back tomorrow with another quick game concept.
