School Project | Gameloft Paris | Unity | Android
Mekabolt is a two-player physics-based 3D robot-building and combat game taking place in a quirky universe. The goal of the game is to push the other player’s robot outside of the arena.
We were tasked by Gameloft Paris to design a tablet game for kids aged 8-12 that didn't make use of virtual sticks or d-pads.
Before entering battle, each player can choose his robot and customize it with different parts, each one granting different abilities.
We were a team of 14 students comprised of 4 game designers, 8 artists and 2 programmers.
I was in charge of managing the team. My tasks included attributing tasks, managing the schedule and managing the pipelines. I also contacted a 3D printer and managed to get a 3D-impression of one of our robots for the final presentation, which I also led.
As a designer, I mainly supervised the Game Design pole and gave them the documents and ressources they needed for completing their tasks. I also trained the design team in multiple aspects like behaviour document writing and design methodologies.
