Daily Design: Day 310
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;
Swap, Back and High.
As such, the game I’ve designed today is…
Switch is a team-based fighter about teleporting. Players always work in pairs, and their goal is to eliminate the enemy team.
Players have only one offensive ability – switching. At any time, either player in a team can press a button to switch positions with their team mates, which will destroy anything that was standing between them. The idea is to position yourselves in such a way that an opponent is between you, then switch to eliminate them.
Players also have several ways to traverse the environment, such as being able to wall-run and double-jump. This is because they’re wizards, I guess. The game is third-person and each player can see their team mate at any given time, but still require a good deal of coordination to utilise their abilities well.
That’s it! I’ll be back tomorrow with another quick game concept.
