Board Layout

So over the last week, I’ve been getting some feedback from friends/online. The main thing that popped up is that I need to start testing this game now! I’ve heard some stories of people having to re-do a ton of illustrations based on how the game changes. Hopefully, I won’t have this problem with the characters as I really like them so far and I can’t see what would need to change (fingers crossed).

I’ve starting working on the board layout in more detail. There are 4 zones, The Reaper Zone, Dwarf Zone, Queen Zone and Elf Zone. I’ve briefly talked about how the blue team are from the ice world (blue panels), and the red team are from the ‘nice’ world (red panels – a better name is clearly needed). Throughout the game, the player can switch either Elf/Dwarf zone into their own world (kinda like the upside down from Stranger Things). I’ve shown how this would work in the .gif below.

I’m gonna start printing all the prototype stuff out this week and start testing. I’ll do a separate post where I go into the zone specific elements.
