    Design Sketches

    I thought I’d upload a few of my sketches from the game design process.

    A list of initial game ideas on the theme "Tiny World". I ended up combining the "tower defense with pixel sized monsters" and "Insect cowboys on a bug ranch" ideas into one game.

    Here are some variations on how the cowboy bug game might have worked. My favorite was one where the cowboy is rounding up ants into a coral. I would have liked to do all of them and make it a bug rodeo!

    These notes show the gameplay that I ultimately went with. At one point there was a sort of terraced hill that the bugs would crawl up. That didn't seem to match the theme so I changed it to magnifying glasses.

    I hope you guys find this helpful and interesting!
