Mashing up some stuff on a new game prototype

We are working on a new game prototype mashing up some well-known game mechanics and balancing the results to create something weird and exciting.

We have been working on a new game prototype for some weeks now. We cannot reveal its name yet, but we think It’s time to write about it and show you some things!

Designing on paper
This new prototype has a strong core mechanics born after some mashup experiment we made on paper. We strongly believe that working on paper is important!

Mashups
Mashups are a great way to work on game mechanics. You have two things that are well-known, you mash’em together and voilà! Luckily you have something entirely new and exciting.

Balance
When you have this mashup game mechanics, you have to balance it in order to make your idea playable, something that resembles a well-formed game with a clear set of rules. We have been working on this a lot, and we think our effort has paid off!

Grow a game
Now we are working on the prototype, tweaking every aspect of it and making our game grow around its core mechanics. A background story is emerging too!

So…
As soon as we have some things sorted out, we’ll show you more about our new project and talk about platforms and stuff! Stay tuned!

 

Tip: here you can check a weird soviet building that has something to do with our new game.
