Phrenology - The Prototype…

When I was trying to demonstrate this game concept for Sherlock Holmes, I thought I’d make a mock-up using a sample of magnetic whiteboard that, incidentally, my wife had used in a demo for the Maxis Studios in Emeryville…

- Its a variation on the classic ‘Pairs’ or ‘Concentration’ game, only the board is constantly moving. The idea was that the ‘shape’ could be a circle, a spiral, a figure-8, ANY flowing shape… When Vinny Carrella and I came up with the concept we thought it would be a great interpretation of the ‘grey matter’ of Sherlock Holmes brain as he solved the case. Hence the term ‘Phrenology’...

- Can you imagine EXACTLY HOW MANY boxes of magnets I had to buy to get enough of each color I needed?!? A LOT!!! The house is still coming down with magnets…

Linerville!!!

This is my take on a Zynga-like social networking game for Facebook. I’ve tried to evolve the format of games like Farmville and Frontierville and create more narrative, more actual shared gameplay and a more “acceptable” form of notifications. Create! Connect! Collect!
