It’s finally time for me to share my first game with you all, I know it’s not the best game in the world but I can’t explain to you the joy and pride that I felt developing and designing a game from scratch which can be played and enjoyed by others (even though there’s always plenty of room for improvement!)

What is Maze Runner?
My game is based on a book about a boy who wakes up in a small civilisation, called The Glade, built in the middle of an enormous maze. The boy, like the other people who are already there, can not remember how he got there. The only way to regain their freedom and find out what happened to them all is to escape the maze, which only allows them to enter it at night. However there are creatures, named Grievers within it that awaken at night and kill anybody they see trying to find the exit to the maze!

If you are interested in making games then why wait? Unity3D is free and there’s so much content to help you online, so go for it! For more details on how to create games for beginners read my article: http://www.gameskinny.com/yljvh/how-to-make-a-game-a-beginners-guide

More info: I made this game in late 2012 during a Media L3 Diploma. I actually asked my teacher at the time to swap around some units and send me to another college so that I could have a crack at games design/development and I adored it! It was hard having to catch up with the rest of the class who were doing a full course in games design because I had to create a game at the same standard as theirs in 6 weeks compared to their 6 months. So this is what I came up with and I’m pretty proud of it! I achieved a Distinction for this!

Blue lake is a beautiful place to swim. Never mind the rain! No sea serpent in sight unfortunately.

Killing time on a 7hr coach journey creating my first illustration on my phone.  

Meet Aero Girl!:
Her hair of chocolate bubbles stuns enemies with its sweet scent and is so airy that it enables her to float for a short while to flee from battles! 

Super effective against: Emotional people who are attracted to the dopamine-releasing affects which are potent within her chocolate. 
Hungry people!

Weakness: Hot temperatures, fire type attacks.
