Comments on function-related aspects

Client 1:

This is a well designed room. I think it shows a lot of potential. Should the zones that are controlled by each crank be indicated somehow?

Reviewer 4:

I really like how the cranks near each zone cannot neutralize the barrels next to them, so you'd need to use all players to get the zones neutralized. It might be hard for players to see the different zones divided by the wall, but at the same time, you can send one player ahead to check out the room before having everyone walk through the neutralized zones.

Reviewer 5:

I think the vision for the physical implementation for this game is well thought out and offers a good framework for successful execution. The barrels are very simple to fabricate, especially since they are a repeated unit, and the IR sensor scheme is another inexpensive way to do player sensing.

I think wiring all the barrels and running everything underneath the mat may be time consuming, and may be off limits for 5 Wits for fire hazard safety. If that's the case, perhaps illuminating the side of the room with the lighting would significantly reduce the installation time.

Reviewer 5:

The aesthetics of the storyboard/vision are also very well done. All the illustration/rendering is very clear and uncluttered and aids in projecting the key features of the room construction. The use of selective color for the key room gags helps to highlight exactly what is important in each frame. The human-use analysis to inform the shape of the crank is excellent and shows a good thoroughness in the design.

Very well done!
