I just posted some pictures from the ongoing process of making a digital game prototype for web and museum installation (play the fish Mara (she’s a Orange Roughy) in the deep sea). What is shown is the playable character Mara in two stages of development. The illustrations also show the most recent version of her “swimming” through some of the deep sea environment of the game. In the game Mara is moving her body when swimming and the white dots are floating around – this is maritime snow that can be eaten in order to gain more energy to swim:
I am looking forward to wrap up the development phase 2a during february and go on to the next phase of the project. The first playable prototype (project development phase 2a), for further testing, will be ready in the end of february 2008.
