The follow is the list of final thesis projects from our graduating class of 2015-2016. These games are available on their respective sites.
A Godlike Good Kid is an interactive comic book experience that will take you on a journey through an enigmatic, magical world. As a “God” of this world, help Faye through her misadventures and unravel the mystery of the lost memories. Imagine Telltale-like storytelling, where the player’s point of view is beyond the fourth wall, and your actions change the world. A Godlike Good Kid was made by Shen Luo, Xi Kang, Nikhil Bagul, and Karn Kual. The game is now available on Apple App Store.
A Tale of Toys and Terrors is a tower defense card game made by Jonah Nobleza and Team Feed. The game takes place in a child’s bedroom, where the player must strategically place toys in order to stop the scary things that come out of the closet. The game explores the maturation of fears: The first enemies are things like spiders and clowns, but eventually the player faces more abstract fears like ‘rejection.’ Using a novel mix of card game and tower defense, Toys and Terrors is a thoughtful and stylistic experience. You can download the game at itch.io.
