Feedback on experience depicted in the storyboard as an Open World Experience

Client 1:

I think the activity of this room would be fun. These yoga balls are just enjoyable and make everyone feel like a kid.

I would love to know how you want to communicate to people that they need to bounce off the bellies! It seems like without any other context, it could take a while to do it. It would also be great if there was a little more of a teamwork/cooperative element to the game. right now, each person sort of does their own thing on at a time. Is there a way you can force people to work together? Force them to communicate?

Client 2:

I really do love this concept of the giant sheriff with the bosu beer belly!

I think the only thing that is keeping it from being a 100% winning concept is not the giant guy with the beer belly button as the input device - it's the game that's going along with it.

What is unclear is exactly how someone crosses the room while bouncing off of these guys. What I recommend is take a much stronger look at how game play would actually function with these guys.

(Just spit-balling here.) Maybe you're locked in a jail cell, and they're on the other side of the bars - and you have to 'stun' them by throwing balls at them?

Think about what other games you might be able to play with something like that.

Reviewer 3:

This room idea plays off of a lot of stereotypes, and I'm not sure if that is a good basis for a room in the Open World Experience. Although bouncing off of yoga balls on the wall could be a fun adventure, maybe fitting it into a theme like cloud hopping or gum balls would be more of a theme and not just based in a stereotype.

Reviewer 4:

This seems like a lot of fun if people have the arm strength for it (not sure how many people can hold themselves up on a swing for a long period of time).

Reviewer 6:

It is an interesting game. Just remember to draw the string more descriptive.

Reviewer 7:

I think this challenge is a lot fun, especially for younger kids. I wonder about how multiple players will participate in the game - would they take turns or would multiple people be swinging at a time? (I imagine the first would make more sense). I would also be a bit concerned about safety, for example people hurting themselves as they swing from side to side, and then the durability of the beer belly men as people are pushing off with their weight on them. I think you could make the game a bit more interesting by playing rest stops along the way. For example a ledge that a player could stop at and throw the swing back for another player to catch up to them.

Reviewer 8:

The concept of Beer belly bounce is very exciting and unique. The game would engage player physically as every player has to swing and bounce on all bellies present in the room.

I have one comment:

(1) I am assuming that all the beer bellies in the room will be lit initially and as the users swings and bounces off the beer bellies the lights would switch off to communicate that the user has bounced off that particular belly. Think about how would the bellies would reset after the first user has bounced off all of them as the other users now will take turns to swing and bounce. There has to be some kind of way that would trigger the reset based on the number of users entering the room.

Reviewer 9:

Great story! It's fun and different! This is something I would want to try out. The story was clear and easy to understand.

Reviewer 10:

I think the whole idea for the room is absolutely hilarious and I love it. I think it is a very humorous take on the wild west theme that is very original.
