My Role: Lead Game Designer, Modelling and Texturing the foliage, Vision Keeper
Our topic for the project was “Neighbors”. As the originator of the idea and the lead Game Designer I took the responsibility of being the “Vision Keeper”, the role is somewhat similar to the of a Creative Director.

Core Game Loop:
concepts by Juliana Kralik. Tractor from bottom right image was cut, due to time
These are cheap plants to earn money. Therefore they don’t give many points to your garden.
The cabbage is the hero for the poor, as even though you don’t gain a lot, it is free to plant!
The Rose is by far the most expensive flower, but gives the most points in return. With its big and flashy look, it will not only attract friendly bees!
The Uglytzia looks like any plant until its fully grown, then it turns into a big ugly mess and therefore gives a lot of minus points. Plant these secretly in your opponent’s garden.
These are your main source of points.
Their attributes differ in price, points and health. The hydrangea for example withstands a lot of damage, while the Tulips are fairly cheap, but die quickly.
Selling them also gives you money, but its only worth it in emergencies!
Run into your opponent’s garden and burn down beautifully cultured plants! Or make your own entrance by burning the hedges!
Also damages players.
Blow enemies away to defend your garden. Alternatively blow them out of their garden and have a free go!
Annoyed from players making their own entrances through your hedges? Buy this fence.
Also damages player if they touch it.
Regrows grass and hedges in area of effect.
Work like flowers, but can be placed anywhere. One of these reduces points!
Cut your grass, heal your plants, and dig holes in enemy heads!
