Comments on function-related aspects

Client 1:

These designs are neat, but how are you going to apply them to the jars? The tea leaf jars are a TON of work. Is there a jar you can buy? How are you going to apply a graphic on a curved jar. That is very hard. If you are going to build, I recommend making the jars boxes.

Reviewer 2:

The analysis and conclusion for using wood seems like a good idea to keep the jars from getting destroyed or hurting the players hands. Other than the wooden jars, the storyboard makes sense and seems to contain reasonable objectives and cues. The rest of your work was form related, so I will leave more comments there.

Reviewer 3:

The storyboard is clear and the gameplay makes sense. How will you make sure that users don't spin the jars in a diagonal position so that two patterns are showing? Is there a mechanism to make the jars stay parallel? Also how will the jars reset if one is left diagonal?

Reviewer 4:

LOVE your exploration with different styles. They all look great. It is going to be tough finalizing on one. Looking forward to the final chosen one.

Reviewer 5:

I like your research into tea jar shapes and surface treatments. I can see how using a lightweight wood or maybe even plaster model could make it durable for gameplay while imitating the real thing. You could even take an actual design like you showed and see if you can't "skin" the model with it. I think that would look better than the patterns that you found.

Comments on form-related aspects

Client 1:

The look is really cool. I tend to think that the designs are probably on the difficult side for guests to solve (too subtle). Overall, I like the look, but I would try to simplify where you can.

Reviewer 2:

The history behind the jars and many patterns are interesting to look at. The use of more muted colors goes well with the feel of your room, and the different patterns will allow color blind players to also participate fully. I particularly appreciate how all the animal patterns seem to match as a set and have similar styles. Overall the themeing of this room is nicely done and consistent and your drawings for the design of the vases will fit in nicely. The last panel in the story board mentions taking a photo of the guests, and for that I would mainly wonder how the guests will know there is a photo being taken and how they will know which direction to face to face the camera.

Reviewer 3:

Excellent renderings! I like how you explored different patterns and styles of jar coverings. How will you decide which patterns to use? Will jars all have the same pattern, just in different colors or will patterns also be mixed up?

Reviewer 4:

It would have been helpful to see how each design looks on a jar to get a better idea of how it may look like. Neverheless, i still think the illustration looks great!

Reviewer 5:

I like what you did with the jar silhouettes. I also liked how you kept the 4-sided nature of your game design, which I think makes it easier for players to realize they need to rotate the jar.
