Quiz Night! is the product of a one week game jam held at Media Molecule for the

Imagined Futures event in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz.

I worked on this project together with the lovely Peter Field, Sarah Brin and Oli Grant.

I was in charge of the art direction, environment art, character design and character modeling 

and the entire team collaborated on the narrative design and script,
which was a great experience.

As only one week of development time is very short, we approached the theme

of "Imagined Futures" in a slightly unconventional way. We decided that we

wanted to do all of our imagining through dialogue rather than visuals.

The entire game would take place in the familiar setting of a pub during the weekly quiz night,

but in the distant future. This way we could hint at how the world had evolved though the questions

asked and the answers given during the quiz rather than creating lots of elaborate art and gameplay. 

This choice meant that designing the gameplay mechanics, environment art and characters was quite straightforward which allowed us to spend all the more time on writing the script together.

My main takeaways for this project were the importance of choosing what to show and what to tell, working smart rather than hard when it came to our design decisions, and that good story and writing ideas can come from anyone on the team when you collaborate.
