Homework 3: build your first object(s) in Blender

Homework 3
Assigned: Sept. 4, 2012
Due: Sept. 11, 2012

In this homework, you will construct your first object(s) that you will use in your game. Each team member will build a different object, or set of objects. This (these) object(s) will be formed from spheres, cubes, cones, cylinders (in any combination). You are required to do some extrusion and subdivision. Teams should discuss this homework and how it relates to the planned game. However, each team member is responsible for building his/her own object(s). Use your imagination. Look through Youtube/google to get ideas.

Expected deliverables:  (total grade: 100%)

  1. A blender file with your objects  (50%)
  2. A description of what you have done with Blender in your Blog (labelled Homework 3) (25%)
  3. A description of how these objects fit into your teams' game (25%)

Other optional ideas: add one or two lights, add a second camera.

Homework 2: Meet your team

Homework 2
Assigned: August 30, 2012
Due: September 6, 2012
  • Now that your teams are formed, meet with your team (in person, via Skype, during lunch, before class, after class, etc.)
  • Develop a game concept that includes an objective, desired experience, desired audience
  • Provide a very rough idea of the story (this will be developed throughout the course)
  • Give me an idea of the characters in your game
  • Describe the above in your googledocs notebook document. Perhaps each your contributions in a different color? Make sure you include your team names, your domains of expertise, what you hope to accomplish during the game development.
  • For now, leave the googledocs game document alone. Once you have a better idea of your game and its structure, you will update the game document.
