GAMBIT GOTW Podcast 2: Shadow Shoppe

Shadow Shoppe podcast with Gambit Art Director Jason Beene.

What is the Game of the Week? THIS is the Game of the Week.This week's game is SHADOW SHOPPE!

With the intention to collect data on how people associated character traits with body shapes, Shadow Shoppeis a casual memory game set in a small town that has lost their shadows. The player takes on the role of a temporary apprentice to the shadowmaker and has to help create and return the shadows to the townspeople. Shadows are created by assigning a trait (or traits) to a projected silhouette; shadows are returned by selecting the right shadow based on the given request.

Over 6 weeks, beginning, Monday Oct. 5th, the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab blog will be hosting a game of the week extravaganza, highlighting each of our 6 summer prototypes for a week at a time. This week's game is SHADOW SHOPPE. The Game of the Week content can be explored at http://gambit.mit.edu/updates/gotw/. We will be posting behind the scenes coverage of our design process, including video, postmortems, concept art, music, early design documentation, commentary from scholars and press, and much more. We hope that by exposing our process to the public, we can encourage innovation in game development and game studies, for industry and academia alike. Come and play. We have made some games for you!

Video Produced by Generoso Fierro, Edited by Garrett Beazley, Post Production Sound by Abe Stein.
