The game is based on boating and sea life. The name of the game is ‘Flee d’ sea’ as me and the team thought it was appropriate for the target market age range. I have researched, explored and designed elements of the game and the characters to create a fun but educational game for 11-15 year olds.
MY ROLE & SOFTWARE USED
The proposed game is an educational level based survival game, played on mobile devices.
The aim of the game is to avoid the obstacles and if that isn’t succeeded then to answer the questions, based on a subject of your choice.
This will allow our target audience (11-15 year olds) to enjoy the game while also learning about their subject.
Here are the sotry boards for creating the game:
The levels to choose from will vary in difficulty and distances getting longer and more difficult each time, with new obstacles and enemies. The enemies in the game are another aspect that make it more difficult. The obstacles and enemies are : the kraken, icebergs, penguins, islands(at the moment), shipwreck, sea monsters and whales and so on.
The story of the game is that the character the player chooses is trying to escape and get to safety without failing on the way. The player can chose and combine different abilities fromt he characters and boats in order to survive more in the game.

For the logo part of the project I has different ideas which I tried to do in Illustrator, but the final one that seemed like it ticked all the boxes was the one you see in the right.
It has multiple elements that I’ve put a lot of thought into such as the relationships between colors and what they mean, along side what is their connection to the game and the characters. Furthermore I thought about elements that would represent the game.
What came to my mind was the elements : boat, sea, sun, cold water, warm sun, the wheel of a boat,sword, map, compass. I tried to chose between those elements and create a logo, representing both the pirates and the ship captains and here is the result ! 😉
