Thinking Out Loud: Survival Game play design 

published by: Alec One
date: 10-May-2017

Condition:

  • If: Life, health, relationships, and work are survival games.
  • Then: What are the rules?

What:

  • updating…
  • Life can be experienced through the framework of game design and gameplay dynamics.
  • Game play: survival

Why:

  • updating…
  • Game frameworks have clearly defined rules of the open-world environment.
  • The rules are easy to locate and understand.
  • Game-play frameworks can be used as variables to enhance experience.
  • The “survival_game_framework” can be used to understand the concept of how people work or “time trade” in exchange for money.

Example of How this can be applied:

Game world environment:

What is the Goal:

  • Survive as long as possible.
  • Earn money (hourly rate for trading time).

How:

  • Skill exchange.
  • Physical exchange.

Resources:

  • People.

Item crafting:

  • Surgery.

Resource management:

  • Time.

Loop pattern in open-world environment…


My Understanding:

  • updating…
  • The gameplay structure used to create survival games is an effective way to better program life’s daily challenges.
  • What is the ultimate purpose for life? My answer: Experience.
  • If I can better program my daily encounters and create individual challenges to achieve, then my life experience will be reproducible.
  • If my life experience is reproducible, then I can manipulate the variables.
  • If I can manipulate the variables, then experience can be manipulated.
  • exit
