System Design
Strategy Game

I am discovering ways to combine Tower Defense & Excitement of Randomness(including Fog of War, Rouguelite, Deck-Building, etc) in a form of a strategy game. Stone World is a project of my independent study during Spring 2022 at CMU ETC. My goal is to learn game system design and rapid prototyping as a technical game designer. Strategy Game is one of my favorite genres, I didn't have an opportunity to develop a strategy game before, so here it is!

Fog Of War System: The Excitement of Exploring Unknown



Planning the enemy's path by destroying rocks and setting blocks, along with the excitement of discovering unknown Treasures or Enemies inside the mist areas!
