Comments on function-related aspects

Client 1:

There are still plenty of technical and functional details left undefined in this storyboard. Pinning down key gameplay decisions such as whether or not a player must retrieve launched balls will be critical to executing this design.

Reviewer 3:

I liked the storyboard for the game. I think that increasing the chaos is a good idea -- having the bouncy balls fall all around the room would make it more of a scramble. I also think you can play around with flashing lights and noise when the lightning bolts "strike" the tentacles.

You could also play with shooting stuff up at the top of the walls (at an angle) which would use gravity to create the chaos.

The storyboard should have been the main attraction on the page though and the white text was hard to read on the website.

Reviewer 4:

How do you ensure activity from the other players in the room. They can simply stand next to a button and push when it lights up. Leaving the shooter all alone. Also what prevents everyone from throwing the balls themselves. Also a caution that 5Wits gave about having these be taken out of the room.

Reviewer 5:

Overall, I like how dynamic and exciting this game would be! I think there are some kinks to still work out. Like you say in your explanation, I think it will be very difficult to reset the current configuration. Also, what stops a user from just throwing the ball rather than using the slingshot (but then again, throwing isn't necessarily a bad thing). Also, since there is only one slingshot, it might get boring for people who are not manning the slingshot (and in this way, it makes sense that you would want all the balls to be scattered around, giving more tasks to other players, but as I said before, it's not easily reset-able).

Reviewer 3:

I think the storyboard was well done -- i was able to understand what was happening and the illustrator made it cleaner and easier to understand. I think you could have made sure that between the sections on your website the room looked similar -- it was different from page to page.

Reviewer 5:

Making the storyboard on a computer rather than drawing it was effective -- all of your drawings look clean and are easy to follow, good job on the drawings of the storyboard!
