1. What's my game about and why did I chose to make it:
My game is about risk and exploration. I've always been fascinated by the Ancient World. I find it wildly interesting and, at times, unpredictable. I am training to become an archaeologist. This game is meant to represent my tomb exploring fantasy. There's a new challenge around every turn. I wanted the player to have to make decisions. I wanted the play to rely on their reflexes. I want the player to feel immersed. My life is boring. This game represents its metaphorical existence...hopefully.
2. I enjoyed designing each tomb the most. I hand-placed each block, aiming to create a different feel and use for each room. I want the player to wish for a specific room and dread encountering another! I put myself into each corridor. The room design is where I managed to stamp myself into the game world. One stressful corner could be midterm week. One open, but dark, space could be the uncertainty of "life after college". I enjoyed making myself through the game.
