’A Luta – The Struggle’ Game Prototype Project

The purpose of this project was to create a working prototype based on a game design document created by the students during an earlier module.
The theme and story of the game center around the story of Jose Maria Joao, an Angolan refugee, who is now living in Cape Town and is famous for his training and daily runs up to Table Mountain. Jose fled from Angola after deciding not to be a part of the war and the killing anymore. The game took that part of the story and turned it into a game.

The students had to build a game production team, set up the game design, programming and graphics departments, distribute the tasks and start working according to the production schedule.
The game prototype’s goal is to prove if the game concept works and do first tests in terms of playability, game features and graphic styles.
The students had two weeks to get the job done.
