Level Design

levels2

We designed various levels based on the typical and classic events of campus life. So far we have implemented three levels:
Level 1. School Song Learning
Find an answer board in the library and then fill in the blanks with lyrics of School Song.
Level 2. Radio Direction Finding
First listen to three audio signals and then search for the correct stations according to the audio signals.
Level 3. Crazy Express
Follow the prompts to pick up your express package in time.

In each levels, players try to complete missions in the given time and earn certain rewards. They can also collect props that facilitate their completion and have to avoid different kinds of obstacles.

Environment Design

scene

The game scene is set up in the Zijingang Campus of Zhejiang University, the campus which freshmen study and live in after entering ZJU. I created and organized a virtual campus in the Unity3D. We decided to present it in a cartoonish style, thus a perfect similarity is not necessary. However, we managed to provide a vivid and immersive experience for players by emphasizing on certain features of our campus, such as the location and shape of The School Library, Moon Shape Building and The Theater.
*Some free/authorized resource from network are used in modeling the game scene.
