The Adjectives’ G2


In space, nobody knows you’re a dog.

Game Idea:

Players each control a single fighter jet sized ship. The goal is to destroy the other players. The gameplay is a dogfighter in space with 3 degrees of freedom. The map(s) is an asteroid belt with a few man-made structures. Game modes is free-for-all deathmatch. Player ships all have 2 weapons each: a machine gun and a fire-and-forget seeking missile. Players have flares, afterburners, and reverse thrusters. Players have a large shield buffer that has a larger hitbox and does not regenerate. There are pick-ups for ammo, shields, and health.



Controlling the fighter is supposed to be really responsive because the game is a fast-paced, low-health, arcade style dogfighter. Being able to maneuver effectively is supposed to be fun. The other fun factor is beating other players because the multiplayer is local only.


Target Experience:

Focus is on the controls and feel of the fighter ship. Players will be able to maneuver around obstacles to dodge players. There will be GUI assists to help aim because the other players will be relatively far away.


Group Members and Roles:

Andrew Whelan: Menus and GUI.
