Awe

Board Game

Board game prototype I created in two weeks, as part of my application to Aalto University. The theme of Awe led me to design a world building game with a 3d layered game board combined with a resource-management system and a deck of cards.

Player feuds are put in the center of the design, as is the functionality and tactile pleasure that comes from building the world. The player chooses to become an awful or awesome god, either expanding their influence by building new lands, or causing trouble to the rest of the players.

During the prototyping and testing phase, I modelled and 3d printed the necessary tiles for the game, from scratch.
