Making the Computer Provide Useful Feedback

The reason we prototype is to test an idea before fully committing to it. Ideas that sound amazing on paper may need a lot of tweaking, or may work great except for one big loophole. They may be completely infeasible, but through prototyping lead to something even better. By analyzing gameplay and making adjustments where needed, you can make a good idea into an amazing game. In this last week of Rapid Prototyping, you’ll be verifying the functioning of your procedural level generation and analyzing your prototype for any other conflicts in gameplay. Of course you’ll need to identify solutions for those conflicts should they emerge, and further prototype solutions. Some prototypes are made only to test an idea, while many go on to become the game should the idea be successful. Your prototype will be a fully playable game, ready for you to expand and iterate upon.
