Based on your investigation, research and analysis, you must write a proposal document to address the question/statement/issue. This proposal should fall out of the discussion in your final report summary document.

A proposal is a succinct document which must include the following:

  • Game concept statement (overview of the game)
  • Target audience (who the game is for)
  • Requirements (the essential features that the game must have)
  • Specifications (the list of features that the game should meet)
  • Resources (list of the resources that you will need, pc, software, graphics, etc.)
  • Bibliography (list of the references and sources of your information)

You will be required to also present an elevator pitch for your game. This will be a 1-3 minute presentation of your proposal for your game.

This will be a live presentation supported by your proposal document and a presentation.
