How The Funding Will Be Used

With all of your generous funding, we will hire real game designers and real app developers to complete our game. We will most likely need to spend the rest of the funding on hiring a pretty decent lawyer because Nintendo will probably be after us… but we fight for what the Emory students need the most, no matter the price.

Game Analysis (Complex, using rhetorical analysis)

This game is employing many different strategies. First off, we are gamifying our problem of time management to make it a fun and motivating way to try to fix time management issues. Next, we are using the nudge theory at the beginning of the game by selecting everything as default.

The intended audience of our game is Emory Students, mostly first years who may not have experience with effective time management. The purpose of our game is to promote time management habits through discouraging phone screen time in order to get boosts and upgrades while playing our game. The genre of our game is a phone video game app where users race against an invisible AI to try to get the fastest possible time. We are also looking to do a combination of mario kart for the time trial/leaderboard set up and bike race for the invisible AI that you cannot hit but race against. Our stance & tone of the game: phone’s are the main cause of wasted time, so we are aiming at a competitive friend group who would actually race each other every day, lightheartedly. This app will hopefully self motivate people to manage their time more properly. The context/reason why we made this game is that people have tried phone apps that lock people out of their phones in order to have productive study time or have tried phone apps that you hook up a credit card to and then once you open your phone on times when you should be studying they charge your credit card. Our game is different because it offers a personal motivation to want to have effective time management. We are creating an environment where if you have less amount of screen time you get special upgrades and unique benefits while playing our game. The design of our game is a sort of mario kart race style game between multiple people. The medium of our game is a phone app.
