Rankings and Grades

Posted by

Over the weekend, as I was finishing up the mapping for the game, I had a brilliant idea! Well, two actually. I decided to add a more visual component for two of the more important gameplay mechanics: Maker Ranks and Monstructs Making.

I was sitting with my daughter and watching some YouTube, when I asked myself a question.

What would make the player more keen to play the game?

ITHen I got the idea to show a cool graphic, along with a cheerful sound to make players feel like they’ve accomplished something by gaining a higher Maker Ranking:

 

I also had the same idea about the Making System:

There’s an added sound effect at the end to make the player have an emotional response/connection to how they Make Monstructs. I’m banking on that to help players appreciate the game’s systems as more than just  chore to do.

I also decided to gate formulas based on Maker Rankings as well. This is also to the game feel more strategic and more layered.

What do you think?
