So I have some ideas about what I want to do for this multi modality project but no real set goals in mind. It all really has to do with if I have the time and capability to pull any of my ideas off.
One of my first ideas was to make a first person perspective video using a GoPro and creating something like this or at least the execution of it. I was thinking of incorporating something like a video game inventory that the “player” could pull up and use “tools” to solve different kinds of problems. Could even do just a day in the life of a student or through the eyes of a student as well and incorporate certain ideas from different readings that we’ve read through the semester. It just sort of depends if I plan everything out well enough.
Another idea was to make a type of board game based off a lot of the ideas around multi modality and what students can do with it. I was thinking of using certain games like Pandemic, Harbour, and/or others as an inspirations and a basis for some of the game play elements that I would want to incorporate. (Videos are kind of long but the first few minutes show how the game is played).
My idea was for this to be a game in which there are four players or four students and their job is to cooperate together to complete a final class assignment and to use different skill sets, strategies, and tools to accomplish that. The idea would be to have certain cards that would pose hindrances, challenges, or be helpful or hurtful items that could be used to take on the big assignment. That was just one of the things that came to mind of a type of game I could possibly make.
I was also thinking about simply making a simple video game myself using something like RPG maker or the like but what it would be about I’m not sure plus there is the difficulty of trying to code everything and the issue of time. Like the board game idea, I was thinking of following a similar approach but it would be a more individual experience rather than a collaborative one.
Obviously I won’t be able to do all of these but these were just some of the things that have been running through my brain.
