Jerry Pan Group-5 Summer 2022 Graphitect

Graphitect: Mathematic City Builder

Graphitect


Game Idea


This game is essentially a combination of picross and graphing; players are given a façade of a puzzle, basic gray outlines, and tasked with writing functions that, when graphed, will overlap these lines. Once complete, this type of building or decoration will be constructed around the city the player can view.

All of these puzzles represent building facades, and players could grow a city over time. These buildings would simply appear in set locations, and could not be moved by the player. As the player progresses, the city grows larger, with different houses, skyscrapers, trees, and other decorations. This gives an interactive, engaging measure of the player’s progress.
