Watchmen - Archie Adventures

 
The ARCHIE vessel, carrying Nite Owl and Rorschach, is battling the Giant Nuclear Squid on the New York streets. You must defeat the Squid and prevent it from capturing the people in the street, even as they protest ARCHIE’s presence!

Given the task of creating a rapid prototype using an existing IP, our five-person team dove into the Watchmen canon and immediately gravitated to two things - the ARCHIE vessel, and the Giant Squid. The Squid does not appear in the film, but is the climactic destructive force in the graphic novel. We felt that using this creature would up the cool factor of our game and offer a fun arcade experience that anyone would be attracted to.

The addition of an ironic situation where the people you are saving are, in effect, getting in your way and complaining to you (see design document), fits right in with the persona of the IP and the worldview of its most sympathetic character - Rorschach.

My contributions include:
