I have designed a "serious game" concept about
consumerism utilizing Gamesalad game design software. I have developed a game
concept that is not purely for the sake of entertainment and distraction but a
game designed not only for entertaining but to leave the player critically thinking,
questioning, arguing and discussing the subject matter of the game. My approach
includes both the design and visualization process that subverts expectations
either through content and/or unexpected results.
I used a Skanect 3D scanner to scan Jeffery Campbell’s
Lita Shoes, which creates a 3D replica of his trademarked product. I then used Pepakura
Designer to print and design a paper model of this item. Pepakura Designer is a
papercraft technique that predates 3D printing technologies. This is a very inexpensive
way to produce objects in any scale, from the tabletop to the monumental.
