Today in Class we focused on Task ‘E’ and ‘F’. This module is about RPG’s (Role Playing Games) and we are to start a design process that is based around a storybook in which we picked randomly out of a box. My Storybook is ‘The Wind in the Willows’; I’m quite happy to have this book as I am quite familiar about the storyline and the characters, also as soon as I knew what book it was that I got lots of ideas popped to mind. The brief wants us to look at all aspects that would be in a game and use them in our design process of creating the game towards our random book. I’m looking forward to putting a twist on The Wind in the Willows as I have a few ideas on the environment possibilities as well as how the characters can fit into those environments, on the other hand I intend to keep some of the storyline the same and also the character personalities.
First of all I have created a spider-diagram from my current knowledge of the book and also some information from online websites and reviews. As I need to read the book again to gain more knowledge I will create a post soon that shows my research from the original book by Kenneth Grahame.
In this spider-diagram my research shows 3 categories. Characters and their Traits, Environments and finally Existing Works/Adaptations. Below shows a list of what will be staying the same and what will be changing.
Staying the Same
The Characters Personalities
The Type of Animal
The Characters Looks
Vehicles and Objects
